Biking and Beer with Hot Knivez This Saturday

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.


If you're not really the Guitar Hero type, here's another (drunker) option for your Saturday: the vegetarian-biking-cooking-podcasting team Hot Knivez will be leading their first biking tour of Los Angeles's best beer stores on August 11th, starting at around 10am:

we plan on traversing L.A. side streets to collect a wide array of bombers and six packs with the express purpose of throwing a tasting/swigging/gulping/retching party at the finish line. We’ll be starting at the Gold Line Metro Highland Park station and end at Echo park lake for a hot nuts & cold beer party. Maybe that's reason enough to be doing this. In between we ask only that everyone 1) make new friends 2) buy a beer at each stop 3) drink lots of water.

They'll be hitting up such diverse spots as the 7-11 in Highland Park, Cap'n Cork in Los Feliz, and Galco's Soda Pop Shop. Bike and beer specialists are encouraged to attend and lend their expertise. If you can't make the event, check out their website for great recipes: they have a strange-but-wonderful mix of vegan/vegetarian dishes and recipes that involve heavy use of alcohol, like these whiskey popsicles. That's right: whiskey popsicles. No word on whether or not they'll be distributing these at Saturday's event, but damn if these guys don't seem like they'd be fun to hang out with. Check out below the jump for the flyer and RSVP information. We're not sure we know exactly what a "hot nut party" will entail, but we bet it tastes good. And salty!
