For some of us (ahem) its hard to believe we’re already throwing nostalgic parties for the 2000s decade. But if anyone is going to bust out the Ricky Martin and bring back frosted tips, we’re ok with it being Bike Party. As usual, meet at St. Mary’s park at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, June 30 and roll out on a bike party through the city by 7 p.m. The ride ends at Lexington Market and is Bike Party’s first full outdoor event. Tickets for drinks at the after party are $4 or 3 drinks for $10.
