Ed, couldn't agree with you more. The idea of a picnic is inspired and best amplifies the 'Take Back the Night' concept where people, community and civility matter more then cars do.

But, short term, the current reality is that in order to re-route traffic for several hours - to stop the 'economic engine' coursing through the city - a 'reason' has to be given for City to close the bridge. I'd much rather it was for a 'fundraiser' for the Ecopark then for a privileged few to have an exclusive 'big party' with no objective other then access. Wouldn't you?

Also, to be clear, Fred was the one who suggested a $1000 fee. That figure wasn't in the above article or ever suggested by Patrick Bermingham.
