Bedazzled Bicycle by David Byrne
You may think you have a hot ride, but it's nothing compared to this one-of-a-kind Bedazzled Bicycle by David Byrne, a Biomega Copenhagen Bike (biomega.dk) adorned with 12,000 Swarovski crystals. Nonprofit Exit Art will raffle off this sweet steed to raise funds, with tickets available for $20 at exitart.org/support/bike_raffle. You only have until noon on Thursday 14, so hit those keyboards.
We know that getting your hopes up and not winning can be a soul-crushing experience, but Exit Art is softening the blow by throwing a Summer Bike Blast for raffle-ticket holders (location disclosed with ticket purchase; Thu 14 6--8pm). The rooftop shindig boasts Porkslap Pale Ale from Butternuts Beer & Ale Brewery (butternutsbeerandale.com) and a performance by Brooklyn duo Birdlips (birdlipsmusic.com). There are not just transitory pleasures, though: Bring along a T-shirt and you can have it silkscreened with one of four designs by artist collective Goldmine Shithouse (goldmineshithouse.com). The party culminates with a live drawing to choose the winner, but if you can't attend, fear not—if your ticket is picked, the bike is still yours.
