Dear Seattle, have you looked outside recently? While most of the nation has been enduring oppressive heat and humidity, we’ve been enjoying the sunny days and mild temperatures that characterize our glorious summer months. Yes, this is normal for us during this season (Cliff Mass explains why), but hasn’t it seemed a little extra phenomenal this year? If so, you’re not imagining things; this summer has been one of the nicest on record for pleasant weather. Meaning it’s really good even by our standards.
This Saturday, the Northwest Film Forum is hosting its annual Bike-In Movie event at Cal Anderson Park on Capitoll Hill. Oh it’s gonna be fun. There’ll be games and prizes, local vendors (like us!) with booths, bike valet parking, and all your bike-riding buddies with picnic blankets and snacks and their “it’s so great to be outside right now” faces. And a movie of course! “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure,” arguably one of the best bike movies of all time, and one we love so much we once showed it at the shop for a movie night.
If you join the fun, stop by our table and say hello. We’re going to have a ring toss! You can play it, along with our Twitter photo contest (follow us here). Tweet @hubandbespoke and @nwfilmforum #seattlebikein with one or both of the following:
1) A picture of your best Pee-Wee pose (preferably with your bike).
2) A picture that incorporates your bike into a recreation of a famous movie scene.
We wanna see your creativity! We’ll have a little prize for the winner, who will be announced via Twitter right before the show starts.
The bike fair starts at 5 p.m. and the movie begins at 9 p.m. You can invite your friends to the event on Facebook. See you there!
