This Sunday there is a bike swap/bands/burrito event at the Charm City
Arts Space. As Jim Ventosa puts it:
Sunday, May 23, 2010
Charm City Art Space
1731 Maryland Avenue, Baltimore, MD
* 10AM folks show up to buy stuff.
* 10:30 - anybody that wants to go on a "long" bike ride (20-30 miles) gets a cue sheet and leaves. If someone wants to volunteer to lead this, that's cool, otherwise it's just self guided. People don't HAVE to leave
at 10:30, but then it won't really be a group ride.
* 11:30 - anybody that wants to go on a "short" bike ride (10 ish miles) grabs a cue sheet and leaves.
Either a potluck or prepared burritos for sale on the fundraising tip.

Velocipede Will have some items out for the swap, fyi.
Afterwards, if you wish to further indulge yourself, there is a benefit at the 2640 space (aka st. johns church on 2640 st. paul st.) where proceeds go to benefit both the Free School and Us. It's called "Charitably Charmin' ChiliBrew Competition" and details as follows:
That's right! You heard it here! Baltimore's very first Charmin' ChiliBrew homebrew competition and chili cookoff is going down for two great causes. Join us for this yummy fundraiser to benefit the Velocipede Bike Project and the Baltimore Free School. You will not be disappointed.
We're thinking that not only is Doing It Yourself a lot of fun, but Doing It Yourself, With Others is even better. So with this event we hope to bring together some folks who get a kick out of sticking it to the commercial product pipeline and living more locally, whether that means brewing, bike-building, gardening, crafts... Even if you don't do anything of the sort, come have a sip and a bite and meet some people who do. Not only will it be delicious, but it might be the start of a wonderful new hobby!
Attendees will be offered the opportunity to judge chili and homebrew to award the titles of "Charmin' Chili Champion" and "Ruler of Brews," with their accompanying prizes. And you'll leave toting a lovely commemorative glass. Who wouldn't want that?
We'll be asking for a sliding-scale donation of $10 to $20 at the door. Whatever you can afford is great, but please keep in mind all the savory fare that awaits your tastebuds AND that all proceeds go to support two stellar community-based projects.
