Everything’s coming together for BikeCraft tonight at City Hall…and vendors are still being adding to the list!
Ayleen Crotty will join us with her Filmed by Bike compilation DVD on sale for $10. She’ll join two other Portland bike filmmakers — Dan Kaufman and Reverend Phil — to satiate your bike film gift-giving needs.
I’m working on a big screen and projector but otherwise, we’ve always got laptops.
I’ve also added Jane, an artist who I mistakenly left off the list yesterday. She’ll have her very cool, recycled inner-tube bracelets which sell for $5-9 (see photo).
And I’m excited to add Eric Bagdonas from Stumptown Printers. He’ll share their work from a series of bike posters they’ve printed, along with a postcard they designed for the Bikes to Rwanda project.
And just to clarify, indoor bike parking is not possible this year, but there’s plenty of room directly outside the City Hall entrance. Check out how we managed to park tons of bikes in front of City Hall at the Made in Portland Bike Show earlier this year.
And finally, some thoughts on media coverage.
I’m not sure what possessed the every-snarky Willamette Week to write that BikeCraft will have “tons of bike-themed crap you don’t really need,” but I think they owe every one of the fantastic BikeCrafters a big apology.
And I heard 94.7FM talking about the event this morning. They said BikeCraft is for “bike elitists.” What’s that all about?
Oh, one last thing, there will be a limited supply of beer on hand, thanks to City Commissioner Sam Adams ;-).
See you there!
