Blogging from Brookside in Kansas City: January 2013

Brookside/Waldo's Family Bicycles Tune Up Special and Film Festival

As I write this blog, it’s like Spring in Brookside-- 73 degrees and sunny! I actually put some laundry on the line this afternoon to dry in the fresh air. This weather also brings out the bicycles, so I am reminding readers to support our locally owned Family Bicycles in Waldo.

Family Bicycles is having a special through March 15: bring in your bike for a complete overhaul and check up for $180, and receive a 30% discount on any needed parts and accessories. All work is done in the shop by qualified shop workers. Just like tuning up your HVAC or car every year, you should treat your bike with the same care and maintenance so it will last longer. Schedule your tune-up now, take advantage of the special and avoid the spring rush!

Also want to mention the 4th Winter Film Festival is underway at Family Bicycles. (Their first film this year, Rushmore, is one of my favorite movies!). Tonight you can see Flashdance at 6:30pm, in the store at 7100 Wornall. Bring your own chair and lap blanket; Theresa (the owner) is providing snacks and beverages. Upcoming movies include Pee Wee’s Big Adventure on February 11, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid on February 25 and The Goonies on March 11.

Family Bicycles is at 7410 Wornall, and is open seven days a week. Thank you for supporting locally owned Brookside/Waldo businesses!
