Bike Bingo Night for CRP Mural Series on San Pablo!

The community turned out last night for a raucous night of Bikes and Bingo as a Benefit for CRP's San Pablo Cultural Corridor project. Actual Cafe was packed with avid bingo players competing for a wide selection of prizes ranging from vegan donuts to CRP posters to free dental cleanings. Transcendentist, the event's sponsor, brought its entire office and filled its booth with bingo cards that spilled out onto the chairs around them. Participants took turns pedaling a bike to stir the bingo balls while Steffy Sue and Actual Cafe owner, Sal called out numbers and hosted the event. CRP artists Pancho Pescador and Desi W.O.M.E brought more color to the event by painting new works that were auctioned off at the end of the night. Richmond Spokes organized a ride all the way from MacDonald Ave to the event rolling in with Urban Tilth and Zap Inc. The San Pablo Avenue Golden Gate Improvement Association (SPAGGIA), who invited CRP to transform their area, estimates the event raised over $500 for the first mural, which will be painted next weekend at Golden Gate Liquors on 60th and San Pablo.
