90s Hip Hop and Summerfest

As you may know from last week’s Kick-Start, this past Saturday was my pal Manda’s bachelorette party, and in true “more hip than you” fashion (Manda is more hip than most everyone, really) the party was an absolute blast. We took a tour of Brothers Drake Meadery – which I’ll write about later in the week – and then rode around the Short North and beyond on the Cycle Tavern, which was seriously so. fun.

Why was it fun? For starters, they let you play your own tunes. And with Soller as a DJ we made sure that anyone out gallery hoppin’ heard at least some Mase, David Banner and Mariah. For… finishers?… the entire idea of the Cycle Tavern is just genius. You bike to bars. What isn’t fun about that?

In any case, my recommendation for the Cycle Tav. is strong to seriously strong. Check it out, Cap-City pals.

Kick-Start: What to look forward to this week.

Weird Marilyn Monroe fetish? (Lookin’ at you, Lohan…) Check out a double feature of The Misfits and Don’t Bother to Knock, on screen today at the Wex.

Late Night Slice on a Thursday afternoon? Yes, please. The Food Truck Food Court will be at the Columbus Commons from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Cheer on the more than 6,000 riders cycling to end cancer on Saturday, when Pelotonia takes off from the Columbus Commons.

It’s sold out, but maybe you’ll get lucky and manage to find some last-minute tix – CD 102.5’s Summerfest features The Lumineers, Civil Twilight, Ben Kweller, Metric and a few more.

Can’t make it to Summerfest? Grab tickets to see MMJ and Band or Horses on Sunday at the LC.
