Flak Radio Live at the Ritz Theater

Flak Radio LiveMonday evening, June 16!

This announcement from Flak Radio co-host James Norton:

We’re doing a live taping of Flak Radio this Monday, June 16, at the Ritz Theater in Northeast — 345 13th Ave NE Minneapolis. The action gets rolling around 6:15 with a live reading by Lit6‘s Geoff Herbach.

Our big guest is Doug Hoverson, beer expert/author (“Land of Amber Waters”), and we’ll have music by DJ Soviet Panda. There’ll be an awesome Flak Radio quiz (audience members as contestants!) and all manner of hijinks.

Admission is free.


Bike/Walk Related:

  • R.T. Rybak wins the Great Commuter Challenge on his bike, beating out the Ramsey County Commissioner who walked/took public transit and Roadguy who drove a car. I did not bike to work today for Bike Walk to Work Day, but I give my potential bike commute a dry run on Monday evening and may do it yet this week, since Bike Walk to Work Day is just one part of Bike Walk to Work Week.
  • Minneapolis and St Paul mayors unveil community bike program. The program is called “Freewheelin” and is sponsored by insurance company Humana. “Solar-powered kiosks will be stationed throughout Minneapolis and St. Paul during the [Republican National] convention, which will be Sept. 1-4. People will be able to take bikes from these kiosks, travel anywhere and drop them off when they’re done. The only requirements will be online registration and a credit card number — not to be charged, but to hold people accountable when bikes are damaged or go missing.” 70 bikes will be left behind to continue the program after the convention and the program may expand for the following spring. IMO, going into the winter is not the best time to fire up the program, but at least it’s there.

  • Bike2Benefits is a Metro Transit program somewhat similar to the commuter challenge (but focusing on biking, obviously). (via twin_cities)
