Tonight: Party With Matthew Modine, Rahzel, and Bicycle for a Day

If you’re in the mood for some bike-themed entertainment this evening, head over to the East River and 23rd Street. Bicycle for a Day, an advocacy group founded by actor Matthew Modine, is putting on a big party/fundraiser at Solar ONE starting at 6:30. Admission ($30 online, $35 at the door) includes an open bar, tasting stations, and live music courtesy of Rahzel, with proceeds going to fund local bike-related projects.

The Livable Streets Initiative will have a table at the party, so if you go, drop by and say "Hi" to my fantastic co-workers from Streetfilms and Livable Streets Education. Get your tickets here.
