Turn the longest day into the best night!
To celebrate the summer solstice (and Cressa’s birthday), OWS Bike Coalition is hosting a Midsummer Night’s Dance Party! Prepare to ride, eat, drink, dance, and have a great time with friends, comrades, and midsummer woodland bike fairies. It'll be at Big Snow Buffalo Lodge, 89 Varet St in Williamsburg, $15 suggested donation, nobody turned away.
This party will be bike-powered—literally! Come next Bike Tuesday on June 19 for a bike generator ride at Time's Up! from 2-5pm. Come help build up energy literally and metaphorically.
This event will moonlight as a (by donation) fundraiser and bike/part drive for OWSBC, so bring a (spare) bike! We will also have a bike raffle, so raffle raffle raffle.
Pre-party: A fun ride to the venue! Meet at Union Square at 8pm.
At the party: We've got some amazing performers and dj's lined up and more to come. So far we have confirmed:
**DJ Fake Money http://fakemoneynyc.com/ This is the same awesome guy who spun XUp's Valentine's party!
**DJ Joey Bouchard
**Jeremy Mage and the Magi http://jeremymage.com/my-songs.html This is the same guy who brought you the video featured here: http://owsbc.org/2012/05/04/may-day-bike-bloc - about Russell Simmons' run-in with a May Day cyclist!
