Delivering food on bikes is so Peter Parker. No, in this city, we like our food delivered in style – say, Vespa style, courtesy The Scootabaker. Upon your order, Scootabaker Heather Wong bakes up cookies, tarts, and cupcakes and delivers them to you via Vespa. This Sunday, she’s leading a Sweet Street Scooter Rally from one side of town to the other. At 11am, Vespa owners will take the streets Critical Mass-style from the Vespa of Sherman Oaks and scoot across the city, finishing around 2pm at the Silver Lake record label company that brought us Silversun Pickups, Dangerbird Records. For those of us (me) without Vespas, we’ll be waiting at the finish line for our rewards: Scootabaker, along with The Sweets Truck, will have all sorts of goodies for your consumption. The ride and ensuing bake sale are all part of a fundraiser for the Pablove Foundation, an organization dedicated to funding pediatric cancer research. This is an issue near and dear to Dangerbird’s heart – the organization was founded in honor of Pablo Castelez, the 6-year old son of Dangerbird Records founder Jeff Castelez who passed last year on June 27th.
It’s a rally, it’s a bake sale, it’s a fundraiser, it’s a great Sunday. See you there. I’ll be stuffing my face whilst innocuously trying to ride your Vespa.
Full details of the Sweet Street Scooter Rally can be found on the event’s Facebook page here. Oh, Facebook, are you the Evite killer we all are waiting for?
UPDATE: If you can’t make it out the Sunday event, vote for them to receive a Chase Community Grant here.
