Event: Curbside & Drake Hotel x Linus Launch

Posted on 07 August 2011

Editors note: these were heady times. To launch our Canadian distribution of Linus bikes we held a big bash at Toronto's Drake Hotel. It was a packed affair that included the Canadian launch of Apple's Hipstamatic app and even featured a Phillip Lim video featuring Linus bikes. Now that city bikes have become less concept and more fact we doubt any new company could pull of this kind of hype, but we pulled it off, and while it is more exhilarating today to think of bike lanes on Bloor, this was exhilarating while it lasted.

What an excellent night! If you were there, well done! If you were not, this is your chance to glimpse the fun-filled evening that was the Style Spin, hosted by the Deadly Night Shades, and the Linus Bike Launch that followed at the Drake underground - an event that sent three winners home with a free Linus bike.

First up: The 3 Winners:




CONGRATULATIONS to all three Linus winners. You may see them out riding their beautiful new bikes.

Next up: The Party.
The nightshades looking both beautiful and deadly.





See the rest of the photobooth photos on our Flickr set.

All photobooth pictures were taken with the Hipstamatic app for iphone, hence the beautiful, irregular pictures that seem transported in time from your parent's photo albums, taken before they had you. Props to Hipstamatic for their support! Another sponsor of the event was Levis Commuter Denim - a jean designed for the urban cyclist. Check it out.Thanks to the Deadly NightShades, the Drake, and everyone who make the launch such a great night!
