There can be only one

I'm going out of town for an extended weekend starting tomorrow, probably through May 26. Quite a weekend, I know. Anyway, it just so happens that I'll be missing some great events in Pittsburgh. The Democratic primary election for mayor, for one, and also two bike-related events.

Many readers will know about Beer-Bike, the single greatest college tradition ever. This is, of course, the only and true Beer-Bike, but there's a guy here who's setting up an attractive, if heterodox, alternate conception of the term.

The East End Brewing Company has an annual launch party for its seasonal Pedal Pale Ale. The party takes the form of a Keg Ride, where the brewer loads the season's first keg in a bike trailer over to an undisclosed location, and anyone who shows up on a bike and rides from his Homewood South brewery to the designated bar gets a free pint. Not a bad deal, except that I'll miss this year's version.

Consider yourself advised for next year.
