Time’s Up events

Environmental rebel rousers and bike activists, Time’s Up just sent out a big email looking for volunteers and help for their upcoming Valentine’s Day Party:

–We need lots of help and support to make this party even more awesome.
Prop Making for Valentine’s Day Party and Love Your Lane Campaign
Day: Monday January 24th 2011
Time: 4:30 PM
Location: ABC No Rio (First Floor)

On the same day:
8PM- Planning meeting for the Valentine’s Day Party

Prop making for Party and Campaign
1. Painting banners.
2. Making hearts of all types.
3. Preparing ‘ticket of love’ packets to hand out on the bridges. We found some chocolate coins that are individually wrapped that seem to be fine.
4. Mailing out Valentine’s chocolate to lawyers
5. Any other creative ideas that other people have for the party or campaign. Bring materials if you have any.

Planning meeting at 8 PM
1. Promotions.
2. Sign up sheets: door, bar, kissing booth, etc.
3. Music, DJ, lighting, ambiance.
4. Food, and liquids (beer, and wine?), candy, chocolate, chocolate fountain, strawberries.
5. Logistics, bike rides/party/valet bike parking.
6. etc…more stuff…

Come help out if you can or volunteer to work a shift at the party.
Please spread the word on this to facebook friends, post on your blogs, websites, tumblrs or just stick this weird things we call flyers just about anywhere you think they’ll get people to ride and dance the night away.
Speaking of entering the 21st century with nifty time consumers of social media, Time’s Up now has a twitter account. GASP.

For those who play along, follow us. This will mostly be used to post events and other announcements such as:
We’re talking about rewarding people for riding their bikes instead of giving them tickets: Time’s Up will be presenting people with fake tickets, a bag of chocolate coins and an invitation to our Valentine’s Party. How you can help spread the love… volunteer to help us on this project, starting next week in the afternoons on the Brooklyn side of the Williamsburg Bridge bike path or in the mornings on the Manhattan or Brooklyn side of the Manhattan bridge bike path. Possible dates are: Monday mornings 9:30am Jan. 31, Feb. 7, Feb. 11- groups of 3 at least, possibly afternoons next Wednesday and Sunday on the Brooklyn side of the Williamsburg bridge.

Friday, January 28th, 7:00pm

2. RIVERSIDE RIDE
Saturday, January 29th, 10:00pm
Columbus Circle (SW corner of Centrak Park)-Manhattan

Join us on bicycles or skates at 10 p.m. on the last Saturday of every month at the Columbus Circle (59th Street) entrance to Central Park for a totally safe, magical, evening ride in Manhattan. As with our Moonlight Rides, we’ll share the tranquillity of Central Park, plus we’ll add the grand vistas of the Hudson River from Riverside Park. The scenic tour continues down the greenway to the lovely pier where bicycles are welcome. After that, it’s a pleasant ride through streets back to Columbus Circle.
This ride usually covers about 10-12 miles and lasts about 2 hours. Weather? We only cancel when no one in their right mind would have fun. Dress for the weather. We hope these rides encourage folks to enjoy our parks at night, without motor vehicles: quiet, safe, and relaxed.
