I could not be more excited to announce an event coming up this Sunday. Dinner & Bikes Tour with Elly Blue, Joshua Ploeg, and Joe Biel!
The Dinner & Bikes Tour is traveling the western states this September to tell stories and show movies bicycle culture while serving up tasty gourmet vegan food.
Sunday, September 25th
Minnehaha Free Space, 3458 Minnehaha Ave., Mpls
$5-20 donation includes dinner, and supports the artists and the free space
This should be a really fun event, and I'm excited to meet Elly, Josh, and Joe! As a bonus, exclusive to the Minneapolis event... Dudey-Free Zone, the locally-produced film on women and transgender bike spaces, will be screening at 9PM! A great time to see the film if you missed it at BFF or if you can't make it to the Saturday screening.
Here is a little more info about the lovely presenters that make up the Dinner & Bikes Tour. Check them out!
- Elly Blue brings you tales of the bicycle economy, accompanied by photographic evidence. She publishes a blog and a zine, both called Taking the Lane, and writes regularly about bicycling issues for venerable online news outlet Grist.org.
- Joe Biel will show a selection of very short films about bicycle culture and activism, including excerpts from Aftermass, his forthcoming documentary about bicycle activism in Portland, Oregon over the last twenty years. Joe has been part of Microcosm Publishing since he started it in his closet 15 years ago.
- Joshua Ploeg is a traveling vegan chef, who improvises climactic culinary masterpieces on two hours’ notice for you and your date and perhaps also your entire circus troupe, using ingredients from the nearest store in your fully equipped kitchen or just the rice cooker and blender someone left behind in the corner of your squat if that’s how you roll. In adverse circumstances, his food only gets fancier. His book In Search of the Lost Taste is a Microcosm smash hit. He has several cookzines, including the popular Fire and Ice and the brand new So Raw It’s Downright Filthy.
