New Bike racks on 12th-Holden

December 14th, 2015 Comments off

Thanks to the efforts of Megan Thorberg, there are now bike racks on the corner of 12th and Holden. Hopefully this will help encourage people to ride their bikes to events at HPIC. These racks belong to the city, so they can be used by anyone. They just happen to be very convenient for us!

The SDOT crew working the night of December 9th to install the racks.

If you know of a location that could use a bicycle rack, you too can do what Megan did: ask the city. For more information, click  here.

December 1st, 2015 Comments off

Friday,  December 4th, doors open at 6 pm. 

DJ Dr. Lehl will be setting the mood until 7:00 pm, between and after band sets.

7:00PM: High Wired NoNet  performs, playing groove-oriented originals mixed with TV, movie, and video game themes, and even some jazz standards.

8:15PM: Danny Newcomb & The Sugarmakers performs. This should be one of those bands where you wonder if you have had “one too many Lucilles” or if they are really performing at HPIC. If you want a taste, watch this recording made at KEXP.

Their last song of the night at HPIC:

This month’s special cocktail– The Cranberry Sparkler. Vodka infused with oranges and Rosemary, topped with sparkling cranberry juice. Talk about the Holiday Spirit!

Green Guidance – Walking or bicycling to the event is encouraged. It’s green, it makes the neighbors happier and provides a safe walk home!

Parental Guidance – There are toys and games set up on tables. Parents, please be aware of your child’s activities.  Activities such as ball throwing and chasing games are discouraged.
