Beer.Cupcake.Mustache Book Party Reminder

Written by Boston Biker on Apr 16

Got a reminder for this awesome party:

—–

When: Apr 20th, 8:30pm onwards
Where: Washington Sq Tavern (714 Washington St, Brookline)

Come help celebrate the release of the Beer.Cupcake.Mustache. book.
In my whirlpool of projects I have absolutely forgotten about the Marathon, so the Tavern may have a few people chilling after that race.

The bottom line – if want your free beer (did I really say Chimay? Damn… No, it’s true.), you would probably want to get there sooner rather than later.

Another highlight of the event – cupcakes! Mo (Maureen Bruno-Roy) is making a small batch of 48 delicious chocolate vegan cupcakes. Only 48, and they won’t last long, I’ ve seen that happening before, like at MMRacing launch party. Here they are, you’re looking at them, then you turn away, turn around, they’re gone. It almost looks like an illusionist trick.

Now that I have mentioned free beer and free cupcakes….somebody’s got to bring some free (as in “establishing their freedom”) mustache.

If you want to own the book for $5 less than it will be after the party, then bring $25 to the party. The books will be there. You will be there. Perfect time and place (as well as price).

Until then,
I remain yours truly,

The Cyclocross Book of Who’s Who in New England is finally done.
Meet “Beer. Cupcake. Mustache.”
The book contains interviews and b/w photographs of 50 cyclocross racers categories 4-Elite; featuring interview with Richard Fries, Hannah Kirshner and the North Star of the Cyclocross Style – Yash Katsumi.
An illustrated glossary of basic cyclocross phenomenae is included to make sure that non-racing audience feels comfortable flipping through the book.

Please come to the presentation/release party on April 20th, 8:30pm onwards; Washington Square Tavern (714 Washington Street, Brookline).

The presentation is officially sponsored by Chimay Brewery, so there will be FREE CHIMAY as long as it lasts. First come-first serve. Coupons are available at Cambrdige Bicycle Shop (and will be in other bike shops, too – I will update accordingly) or you can request it by e-mail: [email protected] and I will hand it to you at the party.
