On August 6, the East Bay Express celebrates its winners of the 2010 Best of the East Bay readers’ poll and editors’ picks all along the Jack London Square waterfront.

Last year, the Bicycle Coalition crowned the Best of the East Bay Party the *most pedalicious* event of the year - we parked tons of bicycles! We’ll be doing valet bike parking again in 2010, and now we know: we need lots of volunteers at this rockin’ party to park a multitude of bikes. Register to volunteer here. We especially need volunteers for the second and third shifts. Thank you!

Free drink tickets for volunteers!
