Snowbomb!? Why you should Zoobomb tonight

Just read a funny/worthwhile message on the Shift email list. It’s from our friend/man about town Carl Larson and it’s a plea to join him on the hill tonight for what will likely be very cold and invigorating night of Zoobombing:

If YOU haven’t been Zoobombing in months or EVER (repent!), tonight just might be your night!

Here are a few reasons why you should Zoobomb tonight:

1) It’s Sunday and Zoobombing only happens on Sunday.
2) Maybe you don’t have to work tomorrow thanks to MLK Jr.?
3) It might snow and that would be AWESOME!

I’ve invited some friends who’ve never Zoobombed before and here is the plan if you’d like to join us:
8pm — Pregame at the NEW Sizzle Pie (formerly Rocco’s) at 10th and SW Oak
9pm — Meetup (and get a “pyle bike” if you want one) at The Pyle, SW 13th and Burnside
10pm — If you don’t want to meet at the Pyle, make sure you’re getting off MAX at Washington Park by 10. Follow the people with bikes.

Things to keep in mind: You don’t have to go fast. You can ride your own bike (but a little one’s WAY more fun). It’s safe. You can be home before midnight.

Suggested packing list: Warm clothes (prepare for standing around), shareable snacks or drinks, good lights, styrofoam hat, open mind, $2.10.
