Speaking of holiday parties! Go hang out with all the walk-ability and bike-ability wonks at the A-Mill and help support the great work of streets.mn, who almost have enough raised to redo their indispensable local development/ land use website. Along with the drinks and mirth, in true streets.mn fashion, the party includes interviews with city beat reporters from the newspapers. 5:30 PM. $20.Margeaux Devereaux
