    Will we have enough room to do a derby?

    Default Bike Convoy - Ballston to Bier Baron

    If anyone wants/needs help getting there from north Arlington or parts west, I'm leading a bike convoy from Ballston that will pass through Rosslyn en route to Bier Baron.

    Meet: 5:15 p.m. in front of the Ballston Metro escalator area
    We should arrive around 6-6:15 p.m. at the Bier Baron.

    Please let me know if interested.

    Here are the details for the Freezing Saddles Closing Happy Hour, the event at which we will give out awesome prizes and celebrate the end of the Freezing Saddles season!

    Date: Tuesday, April 4, 2017
    (The Freezing Saddles contest ends on March 19 at midnight, but holding the happy hour on April 4 will allow time to crunch the data and prepare awards.)
    Time: 6 to 8 pm (officially) but we’re welcome to stay ‘til 9:30 or 10 pm.
    Location: Bier Baron Tavern, located at 1523 22nd St NW, Washington, DC (between P and Q Streets on the east side of the street)...this is near Dupont Circle and Foggy Bottom in DC. We will hold the award ceremony on the stage, starting at about 7 pm. The room has audio-visual capacity….a screen, a juke box, a sound system (we can hook up an iphone or other gadgets), projector, etc.
    Cover charge (suggested cash donation): $10 per person…all of this will cover food. For our opening happy hour, the Bier Baron zeroed out any charges for the private room and wait-staff, so we paid only for the food (which was $800 total). We have $200 left over from January which will go to food as well…so there will be MORE food this time, and we will stagger it in batches throughout the evening. The buffet of finger food will include soft pretzels, quesadillas, and falafel sandwiches.
    Beer: Bier Baron sells 24 beers on draft, and up ‘til 7 pm there’s a $1 discount on the draft beers (the standard price is $5 to $9 for most types). They also sell 600 types of beer in bottles, and they have sodas and juices as well. There’s a full menu of dinner food for those who wish a heartier meal.
    Children: If you’re not able to park your little ones with a friend or a babysitter, feel free to bring them along. This is a bar, so adults will be carded at the door, but kids are welcome until 9 pm. The award ceremony usually rates between G and PG-13.
    Bike Parking: Bring a U-lock and any other locks you’ve got, ‘cause we will be parking our bikes on the street. Do not park INSIDE the neighbor’s garden – please keep your bicycle on the outer part of the railing if you lock up to any private enclosures. Before the prior happy hour we did an intensive search for bike parking facilities in the area, but without much luck. However, there are 15 racks between Bier Baron and Dupont Circle, which will hold about 70 bikes, plus assorted poles and other things to latch onto. There is also Capital Bikeshare, assuming you can find a space in which to dock your bike. And Bier Baron is located near the Dupont Circle Metro, if you opt to take transit instead.
    Paper Plates: Making paper-plate name badges has become a Freezing Saddles tradition. We will have plates, markers, stickers, hole-punchers and yarn available for those who wish to design for themselves a commemorative name plate.
    RSVPs: We are making a list of likely attendees so as to generate an approximate head count for food.
    Please reply on this thread if you’d like to join in the fun (and please indicate the number if you’ll be bringing friends/family). All are welcome.

    Looking forward! w&w on behalf of your hardworking FS social committee

    Kudos to wheels&wings, CBGanimal, and all of the other planners and presenters! That was a blast. Thank you for all the work you put into organizing the happy hour and the creativity that went into the pointless prize presentations.

    A huge shout out and thank you to Wheels&Wings, SteveO, CBG Animal and any others involved in organizing tonight's final happy hour! A lot of work goes into making things like that happen and communicating and keeping track of all the details, and I'm not sure if you got recognized for all that at the event itself. So please consider this a loud round of applause for your much appreciated work and planning! It was a wonderful evening thanks to you all!

    Default Thank you!

    Echoing Arlingtonrider and Komorebi here... Thank you so much wheels&wings, Sunyata, Steve O, CBGanimal, all the other folks whose names I'm forgetting/still learning for putting this thing together. When I joined the forums in February I did NOT expect I'd wind up in a bar wearing a paper plate around my neck and eating Girl Scout cookies while surrounded by such a welcoming group of bike and beer lovers.
