Flow State CoffeeBar on Frankford Avenue is set to open sometime this fall. In the meantime, the owners are having some summertime fun with a Gelato Cat Bike Ride on July 9th.
In addition to being a perfect(ly awesome) example of Peak Millennial, the event is pretty much what it sounds like: “Express your inner Gelato Cat in any way you like” — I interpret this to mean dressing like a cat or wearing clothing emblazoned with images of felines — bike over to Flow State, and “ride bikes in a huge cat-pack around Kensington,” according to the event page. The rider with the best cat-garb wins a special prize.
The rise starts at 10 a.m. and finishes up at noon back at the starting point, where everyone can beat the heat with complimentary catnip-infused gelato. Just make sure you’re not still under the influence when you ride home.
