local and delicious

In honor of the gorgeous weather this weekend, let's go biking. Will Bike for Food will be making our way to Local Harvest (http://www.localharvestcafe.com/), for some lunch-time eats. It is all local and fun and delicious, and a quick seven mile ride there.

Meet at the History Museum at noon tomorrow, and be hungry! Bring your bicycles and helmets (and a bag if you want to buy something from the local harvest grocery). Nom nom!

candy and crowns

Time for another Wednesday night will bike for food! We're heading to Crown Candy kitchen in north St. Louis, a delicious and awesome place that has been around since 1913. Get hungry for some XL milkshakes...mmmm.

It's a quick 6.5 mile ride there, and we'll take our time getting back as to not upset our deliciously full bellies. Mobot or checking out the new sculpture park are also options for anyone who's interested afterward.

We're meeting at the history museum at 5:30 pm, and will be heading down Lindell from there. It will be on some bigger roads than usual, so wear a helmet if you have one. Bring some cash for dinner/milkshakes/candy as well.

Although there will be some biking going on the night before, don't let that keep you from coming out and enjoying some great stl food and riding.

Hope to see you there!

midsummer night

Sophia:it's amazing all of the things we accomplished in 5 hours
11:49 AM usually it seems like you would lose time biking places, having so many people, etc
11:52 AM me: true
we biked, lemonaded, marketed, friended, potlucked (pretty much), dined, hung out at mobot, met people, and listened to music
11:53 AM impressive
Sophia: exactly

schafly and market and mobot!

Time for another foodie ride! Here's the low-down on our adventure, which will start this evening at the history museum.

We will be departing at 5 pm for Schafly Bottleworks to hit up the Maplewood farmer's market. It's only open Wednesdays from 4-7 pm, and I've heard good things. After stocking up on some food (and drink?), we're going to trek to the Missouri Botanical Gardens in Tower Grove, where there are free jazz concerts on Wednesday nights. We'll cook some food there, and chow down on what we bought while picnicing in the gardens. When we've had our fill of food and music, we'll head back to the history museum (around 8:30 maybe). Total is only around 12 miles, but we can always detour a little (there's a new sculpture park downtown that is opening tonight).

Since actually preparing food involves a little coordination, we're asking you for a few things. Nothing too painful:
1. RSVP. Shoot me an email if you think you can come, so we can plan for how many people we'll have.
2. Bring $3 to cover costs. We might not need this, but this would be for condiments/plates/buns/
whatever we need to make this into an actual dinner.
3. Bring money to buy food, or some food for the picnic.
4. Bring a bag to carry food in.

So meet at the front of the history museum at 5 pm. If you can't get off of work or whatever that early, you are welcome to meet us along the way (just give me a call). The concert starts at 7:30 pm, so you could even come for that.
