Seasonal Special Happenings

Bikes and Beer at the Ballpark

When: Fri., Sept. 17 2010

It would have been just like Glenn Beck hosting his rally on Martin Luther King Day, only without the racist overtones: On the same day ODOT was expected to announce its chosen designer for the new Inner Belt Bridge, a group of bicycle and alternative-transport advocacy groups decided that, rather than mope about the fact that said bridge will not include a bike and pedestrian lane, they should instead throw a party. ODOT picked its winner early, but the party is still on today: Organizers booked Progressive Field and musical guests Carlos Jones and the PLUS Band and the future-punk trio Filmstrip. Besides fine music and the spectacle of Cleveland's alternative-transit community being swallowed by the baseball stadium, they promise bargain beer, food, and drinks. Best of all: You won't have to avert your eyes from the baseball diamond below — the woeful Tribe is out of town tonight. It happens from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, September 17, at Progressive Field, Gate C. Admission and bicycle valet parking are both free. — Michael Gill
