This Weekend: Hi Neighbor Homestand, New Am Bike Show And Bacon & Beer Fest

It’s a gorgeous Friday and the Red Sox are at home against Seattle tonight and that means another Hi Neighbor Homestand for Narragansett beer. We will be starting around 5pm near the Baseball Tavern (on the street).  TallBoy and the Gansett Gang will venture down Boylston Street, left on Ispwich Street, left onto Lansdowne.  Stroll down Lansdowne St, passing House of Blues, Bleacher Bar, Game On.  Taking right on Brookline Ave around corner at the Cask n Flagon.  Walk over the Mass Pike and into Kenmore Square.  Walk down by the Kenmore MBTA station and say hello to all the fans coming off the train.  Ending at Lower Depths (476 Comm Ave).  We will have a promotion with games and prizes there from 5:45 – 7:00pm. Go Sox!

The first bike show in New York City was in Brooklyn in 1897, and 114 years later, we’re bringing the bicycle show back! New York Press, Manhattan Media’s lifestyle publication for the city’s young trendsetters, and Transportation Alternatives announce The New Amsterdam Bicycle Show: Benefiting Transportation Alternatives. This show promises to dazzle attendees as much as The New York International Auto Show, which will end the same weekend that the bicycle show begins. This pivotal event will take place April 30, 2011, at Chelsea’s new cultural venue Center 548, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and will kick off Bike Month NYC 2011.

Tickets are now available online here, and cost $15 for general admission in advance and $20 day of the event. The show will benefit Transportation Alternatives, the advocacy group dedicated to reclaiming the city’s streets from automobiles. TA representatives will be on hand to provide valet bicycle parking to guests, as well as safe and useful bicycling tips for new New York City cyclists.

We invite all bike makers and lifestyle products related to bicycling on a global level to become involved. Tofind out more about tickets for this event, how to become a sponsor or how to become an exhibitor at The New Amsterdam Bicycle Show, please visit http://www.newambikeshow.com.

The 2011 Boston Bacon and Beer Festival will be Saturday, April 30th from 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM at  the The Royale. Restaurants and purveyors from all over will be preparing their tastiest bacon based dishes for you to sample paired with beers from New England’s greatest breweries. If that’s not a good enough way to spend a Saturday afternoon, you should know that it’s also a benefit for the local hunger relief organizations Lovin’ Spoonfuls, Community Servings, and Share our Strength. Keep checking this page for additional festival information.

Your ticket gets you in to Bacon and Beer Fest where you’ll be able to sample the dishes and the beer. There will be other people there with the same intention, so remember to share.

If you can’t make it, buy t shirts here! Music provided by Flavorheard.
