Sat February 18 at 7:00 PM, Small Bar Logan
2956 N Albany Ave, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
Miss Kaz and I started a bike gang. Our first event is a bar night at one of our favorite tiny local watering holes that will end with a short, three mile group ride to the best monthly dance night in town. If you don't bike, we won't tell.
Tiny Fix is a scrappy gang of petite velopedestriennes who ride fixed gear bikes that look like they were built for eight-year-old hipsters, drink beer, fight dirty, plan events for cyclists of all sizes & riding styles, and wear dance floors down to the dirt. We want to do these things with you.

TINY FIX, SMALL BAR: Small Bar Logan: 2956 N. Albany: 6:50pm-11:30pm: We’ll be holding it down at one of the most laid-back bars in Logan starting at 6:50C (GET IT GET IT oh god kill me now). Come out, drink a craft beer, eat some deep-fried cheese curds, shoot the breeze, meet the gang.

 At ten thirty, we’re going to round everyone willing, able, and awesome up to ride the whole THREE MILES to The Empty Bottle (1035 N Western Ave) for Windy City Soul Club, which requires $5 and 21+ ID for admission. If you’re unable to make the first portion of the evening, meet us here.

If you’re not familiar with WCSC, it’s a monthly dance party and sweaty hot mess with an excellent mix of throwback soul tunes. Run into your ex, do the mashed potato with a stranger, trick your friend into doing a shot of Malort, get PBR spilled all over you, and hit the dancefloor so hard you have to replace your SPD cleats the next day.

THE FINE PRINT: Tiny Fix is not your mom. (Not that that would be a bad thing; your mom’s pretty hot). We are absolutely not responsible for your personal safety. We frown on getting sloppy drunk and acting a fool, and we smile upon lights and helmets. When we ride together, we ride as part of traffic, not against it. We’re stopping at red lights, staying together, and letting cars pass, like the cool kids. Word.

Facebook Invite.

I'll be in Chicago on vacation while this is going on... I'll try to turn up to one or the other

Is this open to men on eighteen-speeds? I am slightly below average for my sex, if that helps.

It's open to everyone!

Oh man. Bikes, soul music, alcohol and mefites is like the perfect quadfecta for me. But due to my unromantic work schedule, tomorrow is our Valentine's Day so I'm going to miss this.

That was a lot of fun! I'd love to go on a longer ride with you all someday.

d. z. wang, it was super awesome to meet you! We'll definitely be doing longer rides and bar crawls and suchlike once the weather warms up a bit.
