Locally organized Spoke and Food returns July 30

July 23rd, 2013 · No Comments

The fourth annual Spoke and Food, an event created and organized by Maple Leaf residents Garett and Heather Slettebak, returns from 5:30-9:30 p.m. July 30 and again includes a stop at Judy Fu’s Snappy Dragon, 8917 Roosevelt Way N.E.

Participants are asked to bike to one (or more!) of the 20 host restaurants participating in the event, which also includes nearby Duke’s Chowder House in Green Lake, Vios in Ravenna, Peaks Frozen Custard in Roosevelt, and plenty more if you’re willing to ride a little farther.

From the website:

Participation is easy. All you need to do is to bike to and from one of our participating host restaurants on the evening of our event. Invite your friends or family to meet you, bring your neighbors, pack up your kids or go at it alone.

Each of our participating host restaurants have agreed to donate 20% of ALL of their patron revenues from the evening of the event directly to the local non-profit that we select each year. This means 100% of the funds raised via the restaurants go to helping a local Seattle area non-profit. The 2013 Spoke & Food event will benefit the Bike Works non-profit.

Last year, participants helped raised more than $4,450 for FamilyWorks Resource Center & Food Bank.

Do you plan to participate in this year’s Spoke and Food? How far do you plan to ride?
