Besides being the name of the club Piper runs on one of my favorite guilty TV pleasures, Charmed, it also stands for Paddle Pedal Party (gotta love that alliteration!), an event coming up this Thursday night, February 16. It's a fundraiser for the LIC Boathouse, and the Recycle-a-Bicycle program. From the press release:
The LIC Community Boathouse provides free educational and recreational outdoor activities through educational partnerships and our regular activities of kayak touring, beach cleanups, and cove paddles aboard canoes. Recycle-a-Bicycle sustains itself through bike repairs and sales (with youth employment programs), and provides educational projects, and a coming bike lending library!

Man, a bike lending library sounds good to me! And I love the availability of these free paddling excursions on the East River, sponsored by the LIC Boathouse. Truly a great couple of organizations to support. And in addition to feeling good about supporting great things in your community, you'll enjoy the following all evening:

Indian and Italian food (Scrumptious vegan options too!)
Live music by the Dutch Kills and the Pete Diamond Band
Gorgeous space, fine wine, delicious desserts
Art displays from LIC Art-o-Mat!

It sounds like tons of fun. Here is the 411:
