Colt 45, no cover; free bike with membership / 2pm-8pm
195 Morgan Ave., btw. Meadow and Stagg St.
For NYC Bike Month, 3rd Ward is offering a free bike with purchase of a membership. That trumps free booze (sorry, booze). To promote all that jazz, and celebrate their third anniversary, they're throwing a concert in the streets. Stagg St. will see action from: bands Wild Yaks, Aa, Pterodactyl, Afuche, and Lam, DJs Drew Heffron and Clay Franklin, bike competitions, bike films and demos, music videos, a photobooth, badminton, BBQ, drinks, live screen-printing, free workshops and the proverbial "more."
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. And ride your bike there, dodo.
So I looked for the caveat. Well, how much is membership, and what does it entail besides a free bike?

Membership starts at $39/month... and includes access to health insurance?! Hmm, I have to wonder exactly what that means... Good things can come true in Brooklyn!
