Newletter (16)You know what’s awesome? Happy hour. Even more awesome? Happy hour with food specials. Awesomer? Both those things alongside fellow Philly cyclists, Bicycle Coalition members, and staff.

With awesomness in mind, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is putting together a new happy hour series over the next four weeks in four Philly neighborhoods, featuring drink specials, food specials, meet-ups, and a special contest we’ll be announcing soon.

The happy hours will run once a week, on Tuesdays, from July 14 to August 4.

The first meet-up will be this coming Tuesday, July 14, from 5-7pm at Tattooed Mom, at 530 South Street. The bar’s specials will include $1 beef or bean tacos, $2.50 Tecate cans, and half-priced drafts.

To top things off, Tattooed Mom’s has been generous enough to donate 20 percent of all sales to the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia.

The next meet-up will be July 21 at Barcade in Fishtown—so set your calendars now.

P.S. Tattooed Mom has some a large bike corral out front for open and safe bike parking, as shown in the image above.
