Tonight! Dandyhorse Magazine and Video Launch Party

[Cross-posted with the friendly folks at Dandyhorse]:

You may lament the end of summer — but here at dandyhorse we love the idea of biking back-to-school on a NEW BOBBIN BIKE! That’s right, we’re raffling off a beautiful Bobbin bike, courtesy of Curbside cycle at our party at Handlebar on Friday, September 14.

Kick-off the season in style with dandyhorse’s video and magazine launch party ~ and you could win a new bike for the low cost of $5 (one raffle ticket.)

The event is free and will feature a screening of the dandyhorse/Steamwhistle film by Hiep Vu “Super Spin” featuring former dandyhorse editor, Colleen Kirley and LIVE MUSIC by Attagirl. Read about the making of the video here.

Attagirl will play before the bike raffle at 11 pm.

We’ll be selling our stellar summer issue of dandyhorse too for just $6.

Our youth and employment issue features profiles about:

  • Olivia Chow
  • Irene Stickney of the Deadly Nightshades
  • Tom Mosher of YNOT
  • Charlie’s Freewheels
  • Evergreen Brickworks
  • Much, much more!

What: dandyhorse magazine and video launch party. We will screen the video Super Spin and enjoy live music by Attagirl.

When: Starts at 8 p.m. on Friday, September 14

WhereHandlebar – 159 Augusta in Kensington Market (just north of Dundas on the east side.) *Please* do not lock your bike in front of neighbouring stores/doors. There’s a fence you can lock to all around the park, just up the street and two bike corrals even further up at Nassau.

Raffle tickets only $5 each! Draw is at 11 p.m.

  • Bobbin bike is courtesy of Curbside Cycle.
  • Your prize bike will be set up with amazing BEACON lights.
  • Remember: Park your bikes in piles with your pals and walk it or lock it if you’ve had to much to drink.

YOU COULD WIN THIS BIKE!:

WIN THIS BIKE at the dandy launch party Sept. 14

If the winner prefers a step-through bike, a red Bobbin Birdie is available.

You can see the red Bobbin Birdie in this fantastic Heels on Wheels profile of former Curbside employee and Opera singer, Wallis Giunta here. Both bike and woman are stunning! Great photography work by Molly Crealock.

dandyhorse is volunteer-driven and needs yours support to keep rolling! All proceeds go directly into producing Toronto’s favourite bike book, dandyhorse magazine.

Proceeds from this party will go towards our Word on the Street table. Word on the Street is Sunday September 23 at Queen’s Park. Come by and get great deals on back issues of dandyhorse in the magazine mews section!

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

Poster design by our cover artist, Dave Murray davemurrayillustration.com

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!

Dandyhorse Launch Party Tonight

Dandyhorse Launch Party

Dandyhorse Magazine launches their latest issue tonight at Parts & Labour (1566 Queen West):

“Pants Optional” Launch Party

Come celebrate Toronto on Two Wheels

  • Music by DJ Triple-X
  • Lots of great prizes
  • Just $6 gets you a new magazine and pay-what-you-can donation (Dandyhorse is 100% volunteer-run).
  • I picked up a copy of the new Dandyhorse at Word on the Street and (in my opinion) it’s the best issue yet.  Great profiles and photos of Toronto cyclists from all walks of life (including some mayoral candidates) makes for a well written, well designed and easy read.

    Photos from the Dandyhorse Launch Party

    I stopped by the Dandyhorse Magazine Launch Party last night… had a great time talking to very nice people and drinking very nice beer.

    Here are some pics I took to share with you:


    Bike Posts were full…


    But way more are needed in this area (King and Niagara)


    Here’s the front of the Canadian Corps Club, which was packed full of bike-lovers. :)



    The bar!


    The awesome door people!


    I helped out on the door for a while.



    A bike was raffled off, and Dandyhorse subscriptions and shirts were sold


    BikeSauce was there, with great shirts and info (unfortunately, they didn’t have my shirt size)


    DJ Triple X spinning the tunes.








    General crowd shots… doesn’t everyone look like they’re having a great time? :)
