An Evening of Bicycles, Delights, and Good Causes

The fundraiser for Atlanta Streets Alive was last night. It was amazing! There were highly-coveted silent auction items, largely bicycle themed. Tons of people turned out and a fair bit of money was raised. Some market vendors stayed open late, tempting us with delicious pastries and the famous Grindhouse Burgers. There was also a line of food trucks (some of Atlanta's first!) parked outside. I had Asian beef tacos with sesame salad. Bicycles were strewn everywhere.

There were bands, a DJ, and a group of drummers arranged around a dance floor where a woman was teaching dance steps to children. The event was at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, which is large enough to have multiple bands playing at once without interference. The fun continued outside, where a Capoeira team performed their moves in front of the bike valet area.

If you couldn't make it to the event, don't worry - just pop on over to their website to make a donation. And mark your calendar for the main event on October 17th!
