Winter has finally released its death-grip on Chicago. In the spirit of spring, Schubas will celebrate Chicago’s greenest form of transportation: bicycles.
On Saturday, June 8th, local shops will be on-hand to perform tune-ups, demos and workshops in Schubas’ parking lot. Schubas will also be hosting a bike drive to collect donated bikes and parts for Working Bikes.
For those attending Chicago’s Naked Bike Ride later in the evening, there will be plenty of BBQ and discounted libations from Revolution Brewing for peak physical performance. Schuba’s will be raffling off cool prizes from local cycle shops, Schubas gift certificates & merchandise, and a custom Revolution Brewing bike made by The Bike Lane. Raffle tickets can be purchased at the door for $2, or RSVP on Chainlink for one free ticket.
The folks from Small Room Collective’s road show will be in-house with a vintage Airstream trailer, bringing a collection of small press and independently produced clothing, goods, art, and music. Celebrating the spirit of independent fashion and art across the country, Small Room aims to aid the fight against childhood cancer by donating part of the proceeds from their 2013 tour to the Pablove Foundation.
Schubas will also celebrate the occasion by throwing their bi-annual poster sale, offloading hundreds of limited-edition screen prints from artists like Jay Ryan, Kii Arens, Justin Santora, Delicious Design League, Anne Benajmin, Alex Todaro,Spike Press, and more. Guests can browse a massive selection of Schubas and Lincoln Hall back stock prints at deeply discounted prices.
