Chins Up and Shirts On
Wear shirts? Like Atlanta? Then this is for you: We got word about a pick-me-up/benefit event happening tomorrow night (Saturday the 24th @ 225 Chester Avenue from 7pm-10pm) in the Cabbagetown/Reynoldstown borderlands, as part of the Southeast Bike! Bike! conference. Where exactly? Google Maps knows.
The party’s called Chin Up ATL. In their own words:
We’re looking for some positivity in Atlanta right now. So, teaming with SOPO, we’re getting together at the Bike! Bike! Conference to make some shirts that promote the good of our city. Jimmie Myers and Staci Janik have designed two different screens. There will be several colors to choose from. Lots of good people to be around. (I hear rumor there might be tall bike jousting?) There’s sure to be some going out afterwards . . . possibly in our new garb! So, let’s show Atlantans that there is still good here.
They’ll have about 50 American Apparel shirts on hand for you to buy and get screen-printed on the spot for $15. They may run out! So you can bring your own stuff, like shirts or skirts or socks, and get it screen-printed for $7 per screen.
All proceeds benefit the SOPO Bicycle Coop to aid in opening a new shop on the west side of town.
