2014 Philadelphia Tweed Ride Is a Go!

We’re happy to announce that we have a date for the 2014 Philadelphia Tweed Ride – November 1st!

We’re really good about keeping our Facebook page updated with the latest – https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tweed-Ride-Philadelphia/131930280190471. Please “like” us to find out what we’re up to.

Meanwhile, we’re firming up the details and particulars.

As of now, we’re happy to announce that Rembrant’s will host our after-party. For information about Rembrandt’s, including directions, please visit their website.

Parking is always an issue in Philadelphia so we’re also happy to share that there is a public lot across the street from Rembrant’s. The daily rate is $13.

We’re also finalizing the route, which should be very similar to last year’s. One new feature of the ride is a more lengthy stop in Rittenhouse Square to give riders an opportunity to shake a tail feather with the Philadelphia Lindy Hop group.
