This week we’re bringing back the Mustache Ride! For those of you who were chased off by the horrific frozen rain the first time, this is it!!

So dust off that mustache you never got the chance to wear and meet up at Parkway Bakery & Tavern (538 Hagan Ave – parkwaypoorboys.com) at 7pm. Parkway has a big parking lot for folks who want to drive in and is only a 9 block straight shot down Jefferson Davis Pkwy from the end point. Oh, and there will be $3 Abita Ambers for NOLA Social Riders. How great is that, right?! Let them know you’re with the group to get the discount.

The ride will end at DMac’s Bar & Grill (542 S Jefferson Davis Pkwy – dmacsbarandgrill.com) for some live music and some pretty terrific drink specials! $2.50 domestic bottles, $3.50 well drinks, $5 PB&J’s, and free bottled water. Mention NSR to get a free Jell-O shot.

February 12 will be the Muses Parade ride! Oh boy! Oh boy!!

We’ll be meeting up at 7pm in Lawrence Square which is located on Napoleon at Magazine. That’s the park across the street from Ms Mae’s. We’ll watch the parade and noodle around ‘til we end up at Poydras and Tchoup for a second opportunity to see the parade. The end point and start point are about 3 miles apart so if you’re driving in, you may want to pick a spot in the middle to park.

We will ride as soon as the parade is over!  Come out and find some bike friends — but if you can’t find a big group don’t worry — we don’t expect to be all together until after the parade ends and we are ready to ride!
