April Ride with the Mayor and HandleBar Happy Hour at The Curious Palate

HandleBar Happy Hour April 26th at The Curious Palate in the Santa Monica Place
– Joined again by the monthly Ride with the Mayor
JOIN us for either or both!


This month we visit The Curious Palate, a Bike Local, Buy Local Business. A comfortable dining room and spacious patio on the dining deck of Santa Monica Place. There’s plenty of room for families, dogs, and groups of friends to gather. For The Curious Palate, cooking is all about connecting with people – and with the earth. This means they’re always exploring new ways of supporting artisans and local producers who can provide them with fresh, sustainable, natural ingredients to share with their patrons. They sell house made jams and jellies and source much of their fruit and produce locally through Farmers Markets.  Plus both their restaurants are built and furnished with Douglas Fir sourced from tear downs  — including one from a house here in Santa Monica – that’s cool!

HandleBar Happy Hour Special:
HH drink menu will be extended for entire duration of our visit, PLUS we’ll get 10% off on all remaining menu food and drinks (excluding the happy hour drinks).


End of every month we like to get together for fun, support local businesses, and to celebrate all things bike.bike_local_sticker
Always fun, always family friendly!

Socialize, talk bikes, give input ….

If it’s on your way don’t forget to pass the Bike Counter!
