Celebrate the election & hear V Smoothe speak at Mix It Up East Bay

9 Nov

Mix It Up East Bay took a hiatus last month because most of the organizers were a bit busy with various campaigns, but it’s back this week and should be a lot of fun. V Smoothe from A Better Oakland will be one of the speakers featured on Thursday night, which is really reason enough to go. If you haven’t met her, you should know that she’s as witty and funny in person as she is on her blog. She’s a walking Oakland encyclopedia so if you have a burning (or trivial) question about Oakland, she’s the one to ask.

It should also be a great chance to celebrate some of the huge gains we made on November 4th, electing Barack Obama and Rebecca Kaplan. And we’ll of course get a chance to reflect on our losses and to start to strategize on how to overturn Prop 8 and Measure OO.

So mark this on your calendar and join me and V Smoothe at Mix It Up East Bay on Thursday night. Here’s some more info about the event:
