dandyhorse bike raffle party brings good cheer to the end of the year
dandyhorse celebrated another great year of bikes and independent medie with a party at The Emmet Ray on Dec. 30. Thanks so much to Opus and to Steam Whistle for the bike and beer giveaways, and to The Emmet Ray for providing a great vibe.
Contributors joined together for some merry making while one lucky winner rolled out of there with the blue beauty.

dandy gift packs included some of the best of our back issues from the past seven years. We also had clipboards to find out what folks thought of some of of suggested themes for 2016 issues. Themes included: the East End (housing subtheme), Heat, Meat (vs vegetarianism), Fur (for our first-ever winter print issue, with a clothing subtheme), Transit, and Unicorns.

Big bike love to all of our contributors. (P.S. If your bio is missing from dandyhorsemagazine.com/contributor please email us and we'll add it in.)
And even if you couldn't make it to our fab party, not to worry, we look forward to working and partying again with all dandies old and new in 2016.
In 2016, we'll produce three (3!) print issues and kick off a collaboration with Torontoist -- that means wider reach for our best bike stories!
Thanks again to the Emmet Ray and to everyone who joined us.
All the best for 2016! (And, yes, that includes bikes lanes on Bloor!)
