DC: The Seersucker Social
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Date: June 12th
Mode of Transport: Your Bicycle
Destination: Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens
The 2009 D.C. Tweed Ride captivated the city last fall with over 450 stylish people on cool bikes who took to the streets decked out in vintage and Edwardian attire. This Spring, Dandies and Quaintrelles teams up with performance artist Holly Bass of Holly Bass Performance Projects to respond with an event tailored to the warmer weather of late spring.
The Seersucker Social, scheduled for Saturday June 12, is set to offer the same delightful kind of unique and alternative entertainment experience by encouraging folks once again to mount their bicycles in high style. While the fall event called for tweed, seersucker has been selected as the ideal vintage fabric of choice to keep cool for the spring ride. Our event partner Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens will provide a fabulous dreamlike setting for the post-ride social.
