Smart House - Smart Car Launch Party on Abbot Kinney

Thursday evening I was invited to the cocktail reception of the opening of the new SMART HOUSE on Abbot Kinney Blvd. I was invited because my lovely sister Kathleen Dugan is a publicist at LaForce-Stevens PR firm in NYC and their LA office is now handling the press for the Smart House.

Now I travel to Europe a bit and have seen the Smart Car for years over there. The cutest little car that looks like you could fold it up and carry it away in your purse ..."It's a purse...It's a car..." I have always found them cute but never really delved into them more than that. Well after an evening of seeing these cars, getting to sit it one - they really are roomier then one would anticipate, and learning more about the car, the company philosophy and how much better they are for the environment - my friend Elizabeth and I started musing on the benefits of having such a little car. I mean we don't drive that much, they are so little parking would be easier - and what a great way to run around town doing your errands without leaving as much of a carbon imprint on the world! Hmmmmm food for thought.

How cute are these little cars?

Saturday October 13 from 11AM to 5PM SMART HOUSE will be open to the public for an Open House reception and then remain open Tuesday's - through Sunday's from 11AM to 9PM through January 2008. Stop by and learn more about the Smart Car, see the amazing design of the Smart House and take one for a test drive! Maybe it is time we all give up our SUV's and start to drive Smart!

Searching stumblеupon.com I noticed your site bookmarκed as: Bloggеr: Briсk Lane Fashiοn.
Now i'm assuming you book-marked it yourself and wanted to ask if social book-marking gets you a large amount of traffic? I've been thinking of doing ѕome bookmarking for a few of my websites but
wasn't certain if it would yield any positive results. Appreciate it.

I'm new to building sites and I was wanting to know if having your site title related to your content really that critical? I notice your title, "Blogger: Brick Lane Fashion " does seem to be spot on with what your blog is about however, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of assistance would be greatly appreciated.
