1. Get on your bike! (via Time’s Up)
If you’ve been to the Rockaways, you know that the fastest way to get around the traffic jams of cars, volunteers, relief trucks, aid stations, and clean up crews is on a bike. So if you have the bicycle and the legs, join the Time’s Up Fossil Fuel Disaster relief riders this Sunday. The details:
1. Fall food crawl (via Food to Eat)
FoodtoEat is hosting a Sandy benefit crawl today from 12-4pm to get people to restaurants that need your business. Tickets can be purchased online or at a Evelyn Drinkery: 171 Ave C.

"Food Crawlers" receive a map of the participating venues after they buy a ticket, and from 3-4pm everyone meets at Kafana for an "after party" including entertainment and a raffle.

1. Tell Bloomberg what’s what (via Occupy Sandy)
At Noon TODAY FRIDAY 11/16, in front of City Hall, nurses, doctors, EMTs, and other healthcare professionals will go to the mayor to demand more coordinated action to rebuild our city’s healthcare infrastructure and care for the thousands of people hurting after Hurricane Sandy.
Volunteers in the field urgently need supplies and greater help from the federal and city government. These life-saving volunteers have told us themselves that they can’t fill the place of a real community health network, and are asking us to help get clinics, pharmacies and hospitals re-opened. We’re taking a list of those medical needs to Mayor Bloomberg to ask for the City’s help.
