Happy Thursday, July 31: Orange is the New Bike

 

Orange is the New BikeThis week’s theme is: Orange is the New Bike!

It’s time for another bonus ride! This week Scott Plaisance will be taking us on a Gentilly Ride! We will meet at Brooks Seahorse Saloon at 1648 Gentilly Blvd at 7PM, and the ride will begin at around 7:45PM. As always, arrive early if you want food!

The costume theme is based on the new TV series “Orange is the New Black”, but any orange attire will suffice. There will be a costume contest this week, and the winner will win a gift certificate for a $20 tune-up from Dio Bikes!

The ride will end at Tutti Frutti on Esplanade, near Fortier Park. There are plenty of spots close by to get after-ride grub and libations.

Thanks to Kerry Wolf for the awesome ride poster!

This week’s theme is: Exploring the Wild West!

This week is our bonus ride, so we are venturing out into the wild western frontier of Old Metairie! We will meet up at BANK St Bar & Grill (4401 Banks), where the drinks will be flowing inside and food will be readily available at the adjacent Mid City Pizza and Crescent Pie & Sausage Company. We will roll out just before 8PM, and a a live tracker will be posted for anyone who is running late.

We will hold a costume contest just before we leave Banks St. Bar, and the winner will receive a set of bike chain earrings made by our Northshore neighbors that run the Bon Jeudi bike ride! 

Jay Mersch will be your fearless ride leader on this journey, and he will be taking us into routes and stops that will push into frontier areas heretofore unknown on the Happy Thursday rides!

Afterparty will be at Mid-City Yacht Club, which is just down the street from Banks St. Bar for anyone looking for a good spot to park.

The ride will meet on the back porch of Manning’s (http://goo.gl/maps/TpLAr). Be sure to ask for the specials, as riders get 1/2 price appetizers and 2 for 1 drinks! It’s best to show up early for food! For any pirates that want to pre-party at Manning’s around 7PM – just tell them you are with us!

The afterparty this week will be at Carmo (527 Julia)!  The kitchen and bar will be open, and we will be able to pull our bikes inside into their large indoor event space to keep them safe!

This Week’s Theme is “It’s Gettin’ Hot Out Here”

With the World Naked Bike Ride New Orleans coming up this weekend and the temperatures steadily rising, it’s time to strip down to the bare essentials for maximum cooling effect. Sweat bands and workout clothes are encouraged, as well as parodies of your favorite celebrity fitness instructors. No full nudity please (save that for Saturday) – but go as bare as you dare! As always the themes are completely optional – but they are a lot of fun if you choose to participate!

The ride will meet and greet at Finn McCool’s Irish Pub at 7:00PM, and will hit the streets around 7:45PM. Finn’s will offering a draft beer special with $0.50 off Miller and Abita drafts. @Boo Boo Koo BBQ & Burgers is extending their Happy Hour of $2 off nachos and burgers for us. If you are running late and want to make sure your food is ready on time, please call (504) 265-8997 and pre-order!

Afterparty is TBD and will be updated soon.
