The Bike Winter Art and Fashion Show is coming up, and it combines two of Chicago's favorite things: fashion, and two-wheeled good times. The 15th annual event happens this Friday, March 9 at the Gala Gallery, and the benefit is sure to be filled with more cycling enthusiasm than the Tour de France. The night’s main event will be the much-anticipated fashion show sponsored by Rapid Transit Cycles, featuring creations from 35 different vendors. While you sip your beer (all proceeds go to West Town Bikes), sporty styles from local bike shops and vintage fashions from Lucitebox will cruise down the runway on stylish, female cyclists. It will be a (free) night of lusting after new wheels, viewing new styles and adopting a new way of thinking about fashion shows altogether.
Gala Gallery, 1000 North Milwaukee Avenue (at Augusta Boulevard); no phone.
