DasBike–In Movie Night

Last Tuesday I attended my very first DasBike–In Movie Night. I came in a bit early as they were setting up. The bicyclists had already started rolling in, and the smells coming from the kitchen were making my stomach grumble. Meet Francisco Grajales (below) a leader and organizer for DasBike, a community of bikers in San Francisco that create a bunch of awesome bike related events such as this one.

The week before the event Francisco and his team of volunteers biked to local farmers markets. They explained their DasBike–In Movie Nightgleaned produce from the farmers. The generosity of these farmers was astounding.


To thank them we all made this big sign:


Before dinner was served I popped my head into the kitchen to watch the cooks in action.




Eventually dinner was served!


Cooks on the right

We started dinner with lettuce wraps. Inside the lettuce we could put guacamole, lentils, stir fried rice, beat greens, and humus. There was also fresh bread and some tasty asian noodles. Check out my plate!


I was really impressed with the dinner. But did I mention there was beer? Every DasBike–In Movie Night, Comrades Brewing Company generously donates delicious beer. There’s a suggested donation of $5 for a beer, however all the donations go straight into the kitchen renovations at Turk & Lyon.


These beers were absolutely delicious! The dark beer on the left side was a Roasted Banana and Donut Pudding Weizenbock. The light beer on the right was a Vanilla Lavender Gluten Free Saison. Yes, it really was gluten free and tasted amazing! We can’t thank Comrades Brewing Company enough. You guys rock!

Once Everyone’s plates were loaded and beer glasses full we started to watch This Girl is Badass – a hilarious Thai Comedy about this bad ass girl that beat up bad guys with her bike! All in all it was a really fun time and I can’t wait for next months  DasBike–In Movie Night

Keep in mind without all our awesome volunteers this event wouldn’t be possible. If you have time to help glean, setup, cook, or clean please click Volunteer Signup! Once again it truly was a blast with excellent food, beer, and people. Hope to see you all again on March 25th!
