One more shout-out to some of the amazing things happening in Lexington…all bike related…because May is bike month. (photos from top to bottom)

Tomorrow, May 31st - 10am, is one of our all-time favorite events: Bike Lexington! Join thousands of cyclists to reclaim the streets of Lexington in the Family Fun Ride! (photo shared from their website)

Then there are regular Progressive Dinners. We’ve done many of them and they are a blast. A group of 50-60 bikers ride from venue to venue where amazing food & drink are provided. The one we attended last week benefited Broke Spoke Community Bike Shop! They happen a few times a year…so always check for the next one. Tickets sell fast.

And next weekend, Sat. June 7th - 6pm, will be the Living Arts & Science Center’s annual Bike Prom! (we did the poster;).
Get all dressed up in your prom attire, glam up your bike, and race (or casually ride) through downtown Lexington. (again, photo shared from their website)

So much bike goodness it gets us excited…so, we designed the above “Get Out & Ride” postcard!

This week we thought we’d highlight some of the amazing events that happen here in our lovely hometown of Lexington!

We played a small role in the creation of the new West Sixth Brewery / Broke Spoke Beer Bike! It debuted last weekend at the Think Local, Drink Local event.

Along with a dollar from every pour from the bike benefiting the Broke Spoke Community bike shop…there were also these amazing, stainless-steel pint glasses available. Of course we grabbed a couple! 

We love all our Bread Box neighbors!

Poster Week - Day 3
We are super excited about our poster design for the indy film…
Proud Citizen
 After winning second place in a play writing contest, Bulgarian Krasimira Stanimirova travels to the rolling hills of Kentucky for the premiere of her dark, Communist-era autobiographical play ‘Black Coat.’

We were lucky enough to get a copy of the film before we designed the poster and it is a beautiful story…well acted, well shot, excellently edited. Locally, it will be debuting later this summer at the Kentucky Theater where these posters will be available!

We’re getting super-excited for this upcoming show because it’s such a unique and amazing concept for a good cause. Can’t wait to see how all the local artists involved re-imagine the imaginative drawings of Lexington elementary school students.
Here is a sneak at Sara’s contribution to the exhibit. She chose 3 pieces from 3 different students to make a triptych of Watchful & Wise owls!

It’s Craft Beer Week! 
And here is our can design for the latest Country Boy and West Sixth Brewing Collaboration: Country Western - Volume 2.
This year, Country Western Volume 2 is a bit different — it’s a celebration of Kentucky!  The style is a brown ale made with Kentucky sorghum and then aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels to kick it up a notch!
Cans will be released at both breweries on May 15th at 5pm.
