Maybe, just to cover yourself in case of a problem, you should explicitly discourage alcoholic beverages instead of implicitly encouraging them. It's everyone's personal decision to select an appropriate choice for the contents of their six-pack (can you even get soda in a six-pack anymore?) but it would suck to end up being the organizer of an event that's supposed to keep bicyclists safe and cap it with brightly glowing drunken idiots weaving through traffic.

Bring your bike and build yourself a set of integrated, water-resistant, low-profile, crazy bright, fully custom, simple, durable, cheap bike lights (www.alexglow.com/anti-love-bike-lights/). I give you my personal guarantee that they won't be stolen: my wheels got jacked yesterday, and a set of pedals before, and the lights were totally intact.

Feel free to join only for the beginning, or ride with us in solidarity if you already have lights you love. Let's celebrate!
