Dandyhorse Launch Party on Monday Night

As mentioned in a post last night, the City’s Group Commute & Pancake breakfast is this coming monday morning… and if you need a great way to “bookend” the first day of BikeMonth, you can’t do any better than the Launch Party for Dandyhorse’s Spring 2011 issue, being held at the Gladstone Hotel.

 

Details of the event below, from the Dandyhorse site:

Announcing the official dandyhorse magazine launch party for our Spring 2011 issue!

Our sixth issue includes beautiful original art by Marlena Zuber, Dave Murray and &Co Architects, as well as interviews with councillors Adam Vaughan and Denzil Minnan-Wong; Manulife Asset Management CEO, J-F Courville and more.

The dandyhorse team takes you on a ride across Bloor-Danforth from Kipling to Victoria Park, showing how bikes are good for business along the way.

Join us on May 30, 2011 at the Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen St. West, in the Melody Bar

Come on out and support Dandyhorse!  It’s a fantastic magazine run by great and friendly people (full disclosure – I’m their web advisor) and they need your support.  It’s not easy running a small independent magazine, especially a *great* one… and if we want Toronto to have a cycling magazine, Dandyhorse needs our love.

If you can’t make the party, consider signing up for a Dandyhorse subscription – they’ll send them right to ya!
