You folks have asked us to open our dance floor more often, and we’ve listened!
Every First Friday we have Cutn Paste spanning two floors, we’ve hosted Beefcake and just last week we had Bears in Boxers… But what have we dont for you LATELY?
Well, tonight on the top floor of the Bike Stop we have DJ Joe Nice and making his Bike Stop bartending debut.. Joe W!
There’s one more Joe in the mix, but I’ll keep that to myself for now.
We’ll have FOUR floors open tonight, so regardless of your needs… we’ll fill em!
See you tonight!
The weather is nice. The day was beautiful and you just survived day one of your work week*. Looking for something fun to do tonight?
Well, if you’re an athletic supporter, our insanely sexy bartender Ishaq has all of your sports needs covered on the second floor. If you’re looking for something a little less sportsy our strapped jocks Rick and Brad have you covered on the main bar. There’s cold drinks and hot men, so come on out and make the Bike Stop’s Monday Classic Jockstrap Night part of your plans. We’re open until 2am… see you soon!
*Actual work weeks may vary, so come on out anyway. We’re glad to have you!
I’m not going to lie; every time the Keystone boys of Leather do their Armed Forces Night event, I always title it Sir yes Sir. It just seems to fit.
So since it’s that time a year again… I’m dusting off my cheesy one liner just like we hope you folks are dusting off your fetish, leather and especially Military gear so you can come to the BIKE STOP all geared up and ready for a good time!
The boys will be doing the “beer and jell-o shot” madness that they’re known for while in their finest Armed Forces attire!
So suit up, stand at attention and come have a good time at with the boys! Saturday 11th May, 10pm-2am.
Bears in Boxers?
Our good friends the Liberty Bears are back on the Dance Floor with their anticipated Bears in Boxers event! There are going to be woof worthy bears stripped down to their skivvies, cold drinks and hot music courtesy of DJ Johnny Mack and Rocco DeFinis, contests and more, and a portion of the proceeds go directly to the fine folks at Galaei.
May 11th, 10pm-2am on the Dance Floor (top top floor)… come one come all, the more the merrier.

Tomorrow night the Bike Stop is pleased to be hosting STAY CALM: Celebrating the life of Shannon Larratt.
Shannon was one of GM Shawn’s oldest friends and when he passed away last month plans started immediately forming to hold not just a memorial but a celebration of his life. What started off as a few friends getting together to raise a pint and tell some stories has turned into a pretty large gathering of old friends, many of whom took trains, planes and busses to get to Philadelphia to reconnect with people they may not have seen in years and to maybe make some new memories and have new stories to tell.
Shannon, who came to fame with the BME (Body Modification E-zine) site in the mid 1990s, was a friend, mentor and influence on a lot of people, but none more so than his daughter Ari who just turned 10 on the 24th. While there’s nothing we can do to ease the pain of losing a parent, we’re going to be doing a fund raiser as part of the memorial, including Jell-0 Shots (Shawn went gourmet! Birthday Cake, Orange Crush, Kamikazee, Pina Colada and Mango!) Kill the keg and a raffle ticket based auction that includes jewelry, body modification services, adult website memberships, art and more so we can give Ari a hell of a birthday present.
So if you see one of our Jell-o shot helpers (we’re making them wear bright pink aprons!) please consider buying a few; having a few pints of Yuengling Lager from the keg or checking out the raffles… 100% of the profits will be given directly to Ari and her Mom.
If you see a bunch of heavily tattooed weirdos that wouldn’t normally be at the ‘Stop drinking and having a great time, say hi! We’re really friendly!

Oh. And if you want to see a picture of chubby cheeked GM Shawn from 1998….
Our buddy Chris Reed is bringing his notoriously awesome BEEFCAKE party to Philly!
They’re taking over the top floor with Go Go Bears, a Kick Ass DJ and a MISTER BEEFCAKE Contest. Winner walks away with $100 and more than a few phone numbers.
Save the date- 4th May 2013!

**The Weekend Starts Now!**
See you Fridays, 5-9pm!
Our good friends the Pocono Warriors are going to be celebrating their 35th Anniversary this week, and part of their celebrations are going to find them at the Bike Stop, 9pm on Friday 22nd February.
If you’re in a LEATHER mood, check out their website for their weekend schedule; and then gear up and come out to wish them a happy 35 years! It’s an amazing achievement and we at the Stop are proud to have hosted them over the years. We still have a few years to go to catch up (this year marks our 31st year in business!) and we can only hope we’ll look as hot at 35 as the Warriors do.
If Leather isn’t your thing, don’t forget that tomorrow night is also our ‘Long Underwear Party’. So… dress up or dress down and come out and have some fun!
