Know of others I'm leaving off? Tell us in the comments!


Here's another option that was just brought to my attention -- New Year's Eve at the Space. It promises to be a relaxed option for New Year's Eve, featuring a Premium Open Bar from 9pm-3am, a champagne toast, heavy appertizers, all night breakfast, DJ Portarock, and DJ Sonny Cheeba. Tickets are available online until 9pm this evening
or can be purchased at "The Space" if available.

Thanks for the list. I've been so out of touch with what's going on lately so its nice to know what's happening in my neighborhood. I went to Vegetate last year and it was fun.

Wow, it's bad that my mind hastily processed the title of this post as "shoot outs". Glad I was wrong!

Hey - I didn't know how to email or call, so I thought I would try this. In brief, I am director of a "startup" nonprofit organization, Mission:Drive, that fields racing teams comprised of disabled Iraq/Afghanistan vets - at this point amputees. Our 2009 plan is to place two cars in the La Carrera Panamerica (Oct. 23-29, 2009 The nice thing about this race (and other classic car rallies) is that - as opposed to "modern" racing - it is a single "big event" that can be run by a small team and competition is secondary to the community aspect of the race. Its not until October, so this should give us plenty of time to raise the necessary funds to acquire truly compete - meaning good cars, support, etc.

At this point we are in the infant stage, but things are moving fast. The classic car community is very good about support. So - I want to get some great space for these guys to work, hang out and heal. In short, my dream is to get one of the bigger spaces on Blagden Ally.

Any thoughts on where to start, who to call? I think this could be a great thing for the neighborhood as well. Thanks
