Can you believe it? The days are getting longer, flowers are starting to poke up out of the ground and we’ve even seen the sun recently. Spring is on the way, which means it’s time to emerge from hibernation and meet up with friends both old and new.

Just in time, the first Cascade Single Cyclists Happy Hour of 2011 is at last upon us. Join Cascade this Thursday, Feb. 10 at the BalMar, located in the heart of Ballard. We’ll have food, drinks, cycling DVDs on the big screen TV and a drawing for fun prizes like Chilly Hilly passes, a restaurant gift certificate and more.

Here’s the latest news on the happy hour menu (5 to 7 p.m.)—pulled pork sliders, herb feta fries, tapenade crostini and puff pastry mini tarts filled with raspberry compote and chantilly cream (how Valentine’s Day!)

And the drinks! The crew at the BalMar have created some special cocktails just for us, including the Prologue, the Domestique and the Tandem. Or if you’d rather, you can indulge in New Belgium Brewing’s amazing 1554 Enlightened Black Ale for a mere $3 a pint.

You’ll find the action in the BalMar’s private upstairs room. Come for a fun evening visiting with other active Cascade members and friends “off the bike.”
