Taste of St. Louis is knocking on your door!

Hello y'all!

I would like to invite all of you to bike to Taste of St. Louis! (Even if you don't have a bike, we invite you to join our tour to Taste of St. Louis via metro - It's just a simple walkable distance from metro)
It is the greatest opportunity for food-lovers (those who live to eat, not eat to live) including myself to explore what gourmets there are in St. Louis, for the best of the best restaurants would be competiting their pride and tastes each other by giving free samples to public! It's open to public, free admission and for all ages! What can there be greater opportunity than that? :D

It would be an awesome stress relief for those of you who are relieved from the tests this week and it would be a study-break for those who have tests coming up next week, so let's keep it positive spirits! We can eat delicious foods and rock the test at the same time!

Date: Sunday October 3rd,

Place to Meet: Brookings Hall (We will start biking from Brookings hall to Taste of St. Louis which is near by Union station and Civic Center Station, and those of you who do not have a bike, will take a metro in Skinker Station)

Time: 3:30 p.m (but don't worry, Taste of St. Louis goes until 9 p.m. We will sit and eat and bike and eat more until you stuff annual worth of foods in your belly)
Also, to note: For those of you who wish to come back early, you are welcome to bring Metro passes with you so that you can take metro on the way back. (I highly encourage all of you to bring metro passes in case)

The place is roughly an hour away by biking, so we should be back by latest 7p.m. (but 6 p.m for those who take metro back)

The weather may be little chillier, so make sure you wear (or have) something warm, and bring a filled water bottle like a person of good spirit.

Also I would appreciate it if you can reply to this mail only if you are going and whether you would be going via metro or via bike (so that I can get head counts. :) )

Also, if you don't have a bike, we can get a group of people to get there by metro and enjoy the taste of st. Louis!

Tons of funs and events at the Taste of St. Louis is awaiting for you!

Love and Peace,

Karin Underwood and Paul Ahn

Will Bike for Humanity

This week let's bike for liquid food.  Let's bike... for Humanity.
This Tuesday, Architecture for Humanity is holding their long awaited happy hour and bake sale at the Schlafly Tap Room.  This will be a great chance to support our fine local brewery, socially conscious young designers, and the excellent local band Last to Show First to Go.  At no other event of the summer will you be able to get Miriam's famous summer squash cookies, drink Schlafly and listen to ex-professors (Mikey Naucas/Phil Valco) sing uptempo love songs.

Is this too good to be true... No!
Meet in front of Brookings to leave at 5:30.
Arrive before 6, just in time for the band!

Get Happy!


Schlafly Tap Room=2100 Locust street, if you can't bike, then meet us there.
Not 21? Have no fear, you can get in so bring your kids too!

As you grow older, you get cool privileges: driving, buying lottery tickets, going to bars, and, of course, eating breakfast whenever you want to.

Uncle Bill's Pancake House. It isn't clean and the service can be slow. However, Uncle Bill's is open 24/7, is a famous South City feature, and has delicious yet inexpensive pancakes, hash-browns, and steaks.

If you want sublime pecan pancakes served with a massive dollop of butter that you have to scrape off, join us in front of
Brookings Hall at 9:30 PM on Wednesday, July 21st.

That's right folks.  The fantastic, the delicious Ted Drewes custard.

If you have only had it at Wash U in those frozen little cups of plain vanilla or chocolate, you are missing out.  Time to experience it for yourself.

We will be departing at 9:30 PM on Thursday from the bottom of the Brookings steps and heading South to the land of frozen custard and Chippewa.  It's an easy 6 mile ride there, and we'll take a bike friendly route (not on big roads).

Ted Drewes (and will bike) never disappoint, so don't miss out!  As always, helmets and bike lights are recommended.

See you then,

Local Yokel

Howdy bikers,

Tuesday is the day for some local food!

Will Bike for Food will be biking to Local Harvest Cafe (yum here) for Bike Night tomorrow.  Bike Night means 2 for 1 sandwiches, $2 Schafly, $3 domestic beers, if you ride in on your bicycle.

Local Harvest is fantastic and delicious, and features affordable sandwiches, smoothies and soups with ingredients from local farms and distributors.  One of my favorite places in the city.

It's only a short five mile ride there, through Tower Grove park.  If anyone wants to bring a disc, we could play some frisbee on the way back as well.

Meet at 6:15 pm in front of Brookings!  See you then!

This is short notice but I wanted to remind everyone that Full Moon Fiasco #64 is happening Saturday night.

I think the ride is at 11 PM so we will meet at my house (746 kingsland) starting at 9:30 PM. Bring booze, water bottles, mixers, and a helmet. We will leave my place around 10:30 so that we can be at turtle park on time. It's a slow ride so as long as you don't get a flat, you will be able to keep up no problem.

FBC is one of the coolest aspects of Saint Louis and you don't want to miss out!

MOBOT picnic

So for those of you who don't know, the Missouri Botanical Gardens has a kick ass music festival going on all summer long.  It is jazz every Wednesday night, with free admission to the gardens, and you can bring food and drink in to enjoy.

This Thursday, we will be BRINGING food to MoBot, to picnic and hang out and share.  Try to aim for things that can fit in a backpack or crate, but the ride is a short 5-mile easy one over to the gardens.  And it waaay beats trying to find a parking spot.

We will be meeting at 6:45 pm at Brookings to head over to the festival!  Bring food and/or drink, blankets, and bug spray.  Oh, and don't forget lights for the way home.

If you can't bring food by then, a bunch of us can head over to Local Harvest Grocery and Mokabe's Cafe which are nearby, as well as a lovely slew of restaurants on Grand if you need to grab something.

Can't wait to see you soon!

Gumbo Shop

Hey all,

This Saturday we are going to get takeout from the Gumbo Shop, and then have a picnic at a park just a few blocks away. The Gumbo Shop is supposedly a good Cajun Restaurant, and I'm excited to try it out.

The route is simple. We will meet at Brookings again at 4:30 pm this Saturday, June 12, and then bike south on Skinker until it hits Manchester. Then we take a right on Manchester and follow it until we get to the Gumbo Shop, just after McKnight. The restaurant is small, so the plan is to order takeout, and go to Tilles Park which is just a few blocks north on McKnight.

Bring blankets, frisbees, and anything else you might want at a picnic, and I'll see you all Saturday.

Will Bike for Food is kicking off with the classic donut ride, to the famous John Donuts. It opens at 11 pm and stays open all night long, meaning we'll get fresh baked donuts.

Meet in front of Brookings Hall at 10 PM on Tuesday, June 1st.

We will be taking the scenic route through Forest Park and down Choteau Ave (pronounced Show-doe). If you aren't digging the return trip, the donut shop not far from the Stadium Metrolink station; last train leaves at 12:04 PM.

Find a bike, borrow a bike, steal a bike (well, only if you know the person), and come ride with us! Helmets and bike locks recommended.

Hope to see you there!

Dah dah donuts!

All hail the late night donut ride! Tonight (yes, short notice, I know), there will be a biking adventure taking place to John Donuts in Soulard, which opens with fresh baked goodies at 11 pm. It's a great 7 mile ride each way, and we'll be heading there nice and slow and friendly.

Meet up at Kayak's at 10:30 pm, with lights and helmets and all! If you can't make it tonight...more rides to come soon! But there's nothing like a fresh-baked boston creme in the middle of the night....yumm.

PS. There will also be some slacklining outside of Graham chapel this afternoon at 4 pm. Try if you dare!
