Seasonal Special Happenings

Bikes, Booze, and a Band

When: Thu., Sept. 22 2011

Trying to balance your yen for bicycling with a yearning for a good glass of wine? Well lucky you: Tonight's fun from Tremont's Visible Voice Books will help you do just that. Tote the two-wheeler to Happy Dog (5801 Detroit Ave.) at 6:30 p.m. for a group ride to the bookstore. Once there, unwind in the garden courtyard with a special wine tasting and yummy snacks from food truck Umami Moto. To go with, local band Irrelevant Elephant will massage your eardrums with their quirky tunes beginning at 8 p.m. If reading is more your speed, snap up some awesome bike-themed books at discount prices. Tickets for the wine tasting are ten bucks for those on bikes, and $15 for wusses. — Logan Boggs 1023 Kenilworth, 216-961-0084, visiblevoicebooks.com.
