ABOUT THE HER HELMET THURSDAYS PROJECT:
Businesses and organizations participating in HER Helmet Thursdays help HER / Mother Earth by providing discounts on Thursdays for people who bike. A long-term project with no scheduled end-date, HER Helmet Thursdays was launched in 2009 in Monterey County, California as a public service. NOTE: When participating businesses and organizations sign up, they are provided a staff reference sheet. Many have frequent staff changes. Just in case a staff person on duty isn't familiar with this long-term project, it may be helpful to have the listing for that location pulled up on your mobile phone screen (or print a copy of their listing to take along), so you're prepared to kindly show their listing.
Before claiming discount, refer to FAQs and project details, including date restrictions, in "LISTINGS, Map, How to Get the Discounts, and FAQs about HER Helmet Thursdays" at http://www.bikemonterey.org.

ABOUT THIS PARTICIPANT:
Enjoy organic coffee, as well as pastries, small bites, European beers, and local wine in the comfortable, stylish interior of this historic building. Or, have food and non-alcoholic beverages outdoors on their popular little plaza. East Village also serves as an entertainment venue and a host for community events. Check their website for schedule.

Bike Tips:

Located just three blocks from the bike path and one short block from the MST plaza (bike-and-ride option). Directions tip: Munras becomes Abrego at Eldorado; and Abrego becomes Washington at Pearl. If you're confused about our streets, it's not you, it's Old Monterey! Direx are very easy coming from the bike path at Wharf #2: Leave the bike path and go directly across Del Monte Avenue from Wharf #2; you'll now be on Figueroa (you'll see taqueria/liquor store/deli at the corner). Continue on Figueroa to Pearl, which is just after Jacks Park (you'll see the back side of the park on your right-hand side as you cycle). Turn right on Pearl. You'll come to a stop sign at the corner of Pearl and Washington, with bank on your right-hand side. Cross the street, and East Village is immediately on your right. It's on the little triangle plaza, where there's often a game of hacky-sack going or cyclists lounging on the plaza. HER Helmet Thursdays participant Work Horse Bicycles is there on the plaza too.
