Thursday, May 10 – Cycle Send Off Party
The Peacock Room
1321 N. Mills Ave.
It takes an insatiable amount of dedication – and in this case, a hell of a lot of stamina – to devote oneself to a civic cause. And that’s what tonight is all about, as Oviedo’s Nathan Kane embarks on a 70-day cycling trek across the country in support of affordable housing programs. It’s called the Bike & Build challenge, and Kane, along with more than 30 team participants, will bike sea to shining sea (3,949 miles from Providence, R.I., to Seattle) while stopping every seven (or so) days to assist in construction efforts for local affordable housing orgs. Tonight’s bon voyage party hosted by funny man Sal Minnelli packs stationary bike races, food and drinks, and tunes by local bands Room Full of Strangers and Yogurt Smoothness. It’ll serve not only as a way to a bid adieu to Kane, but also as a fundraiser for his upcoming journey. – Aimee Vitek
