About that free pizza at Via Tribunali in Georgetown tonight: All $3 Peroni proceeds go to a fantastic nonprofit called Bike Works. You may have seen its little house in Columbia City that's actually a full-service repair shop and also sells refurbished adult and kids bikes. Bike Works also runs killer youth programs, like Earn-a-Bike, where kids learn how to fix bikes while clocking hours to earn their very own ride, and Street Burners, a youth-driven bike club where the kids do whatever they hell they want (namely: bike polo, taco-bus time trials, BMXing, building bike choppers and bicycle-powered blenders). Plus! The staff at Bike Works are the original pros at youth bike touring—every summer they take 10- to 17-year-olds on bike-touring camps all over Washington while discussing social justice and environmental issues.

So what are you waiting for? Get down to Georgetown and start drinking (5:00 to 7:00 p.m.)! It's for the kids.

And if you have younglings in your life, check out Bike Works' summer camps!
