When it was announced that the Philadelphia Bike Race was canceled this year, a group in Manayunk cried out for help. With assistance from U.S. Rep. Bob Brady, a new bike race, the Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic was created, to be held on June 2, 2013.
Race organizers Richard Adler and Alan Morrison will visit the The Pen & Pencil Club to discuss the trial and tribulations of dealing with the old race’s legacy and building support for and logistics of the new 12-mile race.

On May 23 at 7:30 p.m., we will host another memorable Slam, Bam, Thank You Ma’am at the Pen & Pencil Club, with our special guest, Malwina Andruczyk. She will leave us in stitches (from laughter, of course!) before handing over the mic to Andrew Keller, who will get the boisterous crowd to put down their drinks and pick up their pens. OK, who are we kidding? Knowing our crowd, drinks will be in one hand, pens in the other.
Enjoy this interactive, one-of-a-kind, improv, bawdy, too-hard-to-explain writing experience free of charge! We’ll bring the paper and pens; you bring your sharp minds and creativity!
