If you love a bike ride and a beer, get out a calendar and a pen. BikeWalkKC is holding a Handlebar Happy Hour,
from 5 to 7 p.m. tonight at the Kansas City Club (918 Baltimore). Cyclists and noncyclists are welcome at the event, part of a monthly salon series that (this evening) features free beer and a discussion of home-brewing techniques.
It seems apropos to celebrate Earth Day with the rest of the animals on the planet. You can praise Mother Nature at the Kansas City Zoo's Earthy Evening, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday. Enjoy the"Peacocktail Hour
" with food from Delish Catering, live music, pedal-hopper rides and aerial artists. Tickets for the 21-and-older event cost $20 for Friends of the Zoo members and $30 for nonmembers.
