The second annual Spoke & Food event is coming up from 5-10 p.m. next Tuesday. If you ride your bike to any participating restaurant, they’ll donate 20 percent of your bill to the Children’s Garden Education program at Seattle Tilth.
In our neighborhood, Stumbling Goat Bistro and Barking Dog Alehouse are participating.
Billed as “an evening of dining and bikes”, the event will take place in 13+ different Seattle area neighborhoods. The event asks people to bicycle to (and from) one of the “host” restaurants on the night of the event. This community event was launched last year as a way to influence the culture of Seattle, to show how easy and fun bicycling to and from dinner is and to raise money for a well-deserving Seattle area non-profit. A new non-profit beneficiary is selected each year. This year’s event will benefit the Children’s Garden Education program at Seattle Tilth whereas last year’s event benefited the Lettuce Link program at Solid Ground.
More restaurants may be added before Tuesday. Check the Spoke & Food website for the most up-to-date list.
