Help us do it with our boots on at the 4th Annual Polar Grill Fest by becoming a PGF Griller today! In three short years Polar Grill Fest (PGF) has become the largest and obviously most fun winter food festival in the area. This year’s PGF will be held on Saturday, January 24th from 12:00pm-5:00pm at Redhook Brewery in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The event is open to all ages and tickets are only $5 with $5 plates and $5 beers.

The Stinky Spoke is an 18-mile mountain bike “poker ride” held on the statistically most-rotten-weather day of the year (this year, it’s on Saturday, January 17th, 2015). The ride benefits the Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center. Riders of the Stinky Spoke start and finish at Redhook Brewery in Woodinville and follow a route around local trails. Playing cards are collected at stops on the route, with each rider hoping to have a sufficient poker hand to win a prize at the finish. The beginning of the ride is a painful and amazing scene on “Heart Attack Hill,” as riders attempt to make it up the 300 feet of elevation in ¼ mile without stopping. A cool medallion awaits each rider who makes it without “touching” or walking their bike. All riders raising more than $250 for Little Bit get their names in the hat for a second set of prizes. All riders raising more than $500 get a cool long-sleeve Stinky Spoke bike jersey. Redhook hosts an after-party in a big tent in the brewery’s parking lot, complete with live music, cold beer and hot food. The Stinky Spoke is the true kick-off to the Seattle area’s biking calendar!
