Ho Ho Hos!
Our friend (and Mid-Atlantic Leather boy) boy Quinton is going to be decking the halls of the Bike Stop with holiday cheer on Saturday 22nd November!
As the temperature drops here in Philadelphia it’s critical that our LGBT brothers and sisters who can’t afford proper Winter clothing have access to coats, gloves, scarves and hats. Quinton is going to be doing a 50/50 raffle, tasty Jell-o shots and a special Christmas edition of ‘Stuff the Stocking/jock’ to raise funds to make sure that everyone stays warm this season. 9pm-2am on the Main floor of the Bike Stop.
Gear is most certainly welcome: Leather, Levis, Western, Military…. and we’ll even have a bootblack on site to make sure your boots are polished to perfection.
This coming Saturday, 8th November, as part of the Philadelphia Leather Pride Weekend (f0r more info: PLPN.ORG) our friends at Wolfstryker Leather are going to be back at the Bike Stop for another round of Second Skin!
They’re going to be setting up a vending area for their amazing leather wares and co-hosting the official PLPN Afterparty with performances by Drew Sumrok!
If you’ve got your PLPN ticket stub admission to the Top Floor is free!
9pm-2am, 206 South Quince Street!
More information coming soon…

Hitting the shelves tonight….
Laphroaig 10 Year Single Malt Scotch Whiskey.
For you Scotch lovers- this 10 year has a smokey sweetness with a lingering finish that’s best served neat.
It will be available on all three floors, so ask your bartender for a dram!
We’ve just hooked up the first keg of Lancaster Brewing’s MILK STOUT and it’s already a staff favorite!
Beer Advocate reviewers the Alström Brothers give it a 93/100.
A traditional English Sweet Stout featuring roasted barley and sweetness provided by non-fermentable lactose sugar, LB Milk Stout checks in at 5.3% ABV.
Guinness lovers should check this one out!

Our Brothers the Philadelphians are celebrating their 40th Anniversary this week.
Forty Years is an amazing stretch for any club, much less a fraternal organization and we’re pleased as punch to have been a part of their history. They’re having a get-together on Saturday August 3oth on the top floor of the Bike Stop with Leathermen from up and down the East Coast coming out to celebrate their Ruby anniversary!
We’ve just added a new draft beer to our rotation- and it’s brewed right here in Philadelphia!
Our friends over at the Dock Street Pub are known for putting out amazing craft beers, and their new Firehouse Saison is no exception. Checking in at 5% abv. this light and refreshing beer is emboldened with smoked malts to balance out the fruity notes from the saison yeast.
It joins our other draft choices starting tonight for a limited time!
