A Bike Benefit

Tomorrow, Friday February 27, The Bike Winter Carnival closes out its twelfth iteration with a huge party of sorts at the Accidental Gallery (1579 N. Milwaukee, Studio 350 in the Flatiron building) from 7 P.M. to midnight. The party benefits West Town Bikes and the Chicago Women's Health Center. Expect a raffle for some serious goods from Seagull, booze to chuzzle, and bands such as Environmental Encroachment, Schwinntonation, and Al Scorch to blow out eardrums.

Though for added persuasion, the ladies from TyK will be signing their just-released pin-up calendar. A bit hot-blooded and racy, proceeds from the sale of the calendar benefit the Chicago Women's Health Center, and would likely warm anyone up who has suffered exceedingly from the recent cold. I know I have.
