Dress your dandy best for Browne's Addition "Tweed Ride" | Arts & Culture
In order to fully participate in this upcoming "Tweed Ride" on September 14, you'll need a couple additions to your wardrobe.
Think late-19th century to early 20th century. Vests, rolled up sleeves, tight collars and impeccable socks. Ties aren't skinny - sometimes they're bow ties - because bow ties are cool.
It's a strange fashion subculture that is most evident indie pop orchestras and bartenders who take 20 minutes to mix the forgotten classics. The above video provides some inspiration.
The appearance is anything you make of it. The only requirement is that you look top notch and grab a bike. Fancy chaps and ladies are riding the length of Browne's Addition for the monthly BeGin celebration which includes free entrance to the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture.
The ride begins at 5 p.m., starting at the MAC's parking lot. The museum party begins at 6 p.m. with music by Old Bear Mountain, DJ Locke and Bike Fights. RSVP via Facebook.
Word on the street, there will be badminton on the front lawn and drink specials that will probably be mixed by a bartender that we described above.
