Get your bike registered (free!), Sat., Dec. 1, 8 am to Noon, Phoenix Public Market


Hey Phoenix bicycle owners! Did you know thieves are less likely to steal a registered bicycle since its owner can easily be identified. Or, that bicycle registration aids in identifying the owner in case of a crash, as many bicyclists don’t carry ID, which is especially true of children. And, registering your bicycle increases the likelihood it will be returned to you if recovered.

Now that it’s a bit cooler in our fair city, Evans Churchill Community Association, Phoenix Spokes People, Phoenix Public Market, and City of Phoenix Police Department have teamed up provide FREE bicycle registration for you, your family, and friends! Just drop by the Phoenix Public Market on Saturday, December 1, from 8 am to Noon, and all will be taken care of. Useful bicycle safety information, tchotchkes, and Q&A are also on tap! Under the Evans Churchill tent, just look for friendly neighborhood and community volunteers – and City of Phoenix police officers who manage the City’s bicycle registration program.

TEDx EvansChurchill: If You Can’t Stand the Heat, Get Out of the Kitchen, Aug. 28


What do a tobacco smoked cocktail, vegetables growing under the shade of city buildings, mind-expanding edible, and the newest craze in printing all have in common? These are just some of the topics you can be enlightened on during TEDx Evans Churchill, August 28, at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel.

“Can’t Stand the Heat, Get out of the Kitchen,” the theme of this TEDxEvansChurchill, is meant to be a statement, not a question. This year’s event brings chefs, bartenders, food growers, scientists, artists, and restaurateurs out of their kitchens and onto the stage to talk about the things that get them, and the audience, excited in the world of food and beverages.

TEDxEvansChurchill, sponsored by New Belgium Brewing and Downtown Phoenix, Inc., will feature 8-plus speakers who will share inspiring and thought-provoking insights. Presenters include Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails‘ Stephanie Teslar, Brat HausPayton Curry, Short Leash Hot Dogs‘ Brad Moore, and local beer cicerone among others.

Following the talks will be “FED after TED,” an after party where guests can mingle to discuss the evening’s ideas, meet the speakers, and enjoy beer samples paired with small plates from downtown restaurants including Marsdens, Cafe at Phoenix Public Market, Kincaid’s Phoenix, and more.
