Free beer, schwag, bikes, music. Dang. This sounds like a great event. Here’s the scoop direct from Wend (notice bold text for bike-specific awesomeness):
Join Wend magazine and Lizard Lounge for a benefit ping pong tournament and party to celebrate the release of Wend’s spring issue. Ten bucks gets you into the ping pong tournament, and all proceeds will go to the World Bicycle Relief (a national non-profit that brings bikes to developing countries).
We’ll be giving away two gift certificates to Lizard Lounge as well as a NAU jacket to the evening’s ping pong masters. Oh, and we’ll also raffle off a bunch of sweet bike swag from Surly, Planet Bike, Timbuk2, Chris King, Keen, Ortlieb, Teko and others.
Arrive on two wheels and score a voucher for 20% off your next regular price purchase at Lizard Lounge.
Also on deck is the Bike Lounge, where we’ll be showcasing the work of some of the finest frame builders and designers in Portland. Support green, independent media, and help raise money for a great cause. Free beer from Deschutes Brewery. DJ beats will make for booty shaking into the evening.
Note: to sign up for the ping pong tournament, send an email to email@example.com. We’ll be keeping a few spots open for signup on the night of the event, first come first serve. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
