mark your calendars & come out to a food-themed alley cat bike race saturday april 11th!!! food skillz, not speed, required. registration for the race begins at 2pm at Duncan Plaza in the CBD (bring 10 bux for registration donation), race starts at 3. checkpoints will have food-themed challenges and you can earn extra points by scavenging edible items along the way & couriering them to the finish line for our veggie & crawfish boil AFTER PARTY at Handsome Willy’s with DJ Dieout, party starts around 5-6pm or so. did i mention there will be PRIZES?? …like coffee beans from Hey! Cafe, cassette tapes from Domino Sound, a tattoo from Sailor’s Cross, swag from NOBS, Tribe Bikes & State Bikes, gift certificates from Maypop Herb Shop, St. Coffee, Shake Sugary, Lost Love Lounge, Gerkin’s Bike Shop, Juan’s Flying Burrito, Theo’s Pizza, Half Moon Grill, and more.
this event will help community kitchen raise money to build two food-carrying bicycle trailers that will enable us to do everything we do by bicycle! …like pickup food donations from produce distros & grocery stores, and transport cooked food & supplies to our servings. that’s not all…the cargo trailers will also magically turn into food-serving tables that we can use when we serve food to the masses! check out these technical sketches from our commie kitsch fabrication engineer:
oh, and a HUGE thanks to ben passmore for the sick flyer & NOLA Alleycat for the endless support. that’s what you get for losing the 2nd place prizes, drew!
