Extreme drought be damned—we're going to run a Slip 'N Slide through Downtown LA, and we're all going to love it. At least, that's the promise for Slide the City, which will be bringing "1000 feet of soapy vinyl" to Olive Street between 3rd and 6th Streets. The organizers assure that everyone will get an inner tube and the track is padded, but we're pretty sure that's what our friends always used to say before we busted our asses on their driveways.

UPDATE: The city has denied permits for the event, and so it's postponed until furthur notice. For permit information or refund requests please contact
