Bikes to Rwanda Throwdown this Friday

This Thursday (tomorrow) we will be having our normal TNT, but in addition, on Friday, to kick off Octane’s Bikes to Rwanda benefit weekend, we will be having a throwdown as well. The rules will be the same, and we’ll have projection and all that fancy fun stuff, but instead the pot will go to Bikes to Rwanda. There will still be a rad prize package for the victor including gift certificates and coffee goodies (i heard something about a Bodum Chambord French Press) that will be well over the value of a normal TNT pot.

It’s still only $5 to get in on Friday, but we’re encouraging people to pay as much as they want to throwdown. It would be kind of awesome to see us latte artists be able to raise a nice chunk of money for this great organization. The espresso we’ll be using on Friday (and all month at Octane) is a Single Origin Rwanda Humure roasted for us by Counter Culture. So we’ll be using a Rwandan coffee to help raise money for Rwanda! <insert cheesy “full circle” comment here>.

It all starts at 8PM. There’s going to be a good grill out, good beer, and good friends, so pack your tamp and pitcher, it’s going to be the stuff of legend!

    Sorry we couldn’t make it. We attempted to battle tornadic weather conditions on behalf of bicycles & Rwandans, but were sadly foiled. Hope to see all of you one of these Thursdays!
