FRIENDS OF THE PedalPub TM – JULY 2008
Greetings fellow PedalPublians! Lots of news since our last newsletter in May! We’ll get right to it!
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT! THE “PEDALPUBTM BILL” PASSED!
The “PedalPubTM Bill” was rolled into the 2008 Minnesota Omnibus Liquor Bill, and was signed by Governor Tim Pawlenty on May 15, 2008. The revised law allows PedalPubTM passengers to consume beer and wine in public while on board the PedalPubPedalPubTM !
We have received written confirmation from both the St.Paul and Minneapolis police departments that they have informed their officers of the new law. Starting July 1, tours may bring their own wine or beer (in plastic, cardboard or metal containers – no glass) aboard the PedalPubTM to enjoy while they tour! Thanks again to all the Friends of the PedalPubTM who wrote their state Representatives and Senators urging them to support this bill, and thanks also to Rep. Steve Simon for sponsoring it!
TWINS MOBILE TAILGATE PARTY!
The PedalPubTM has partnered with the Minnesota Twins to do Minnesota Twins pre-game mobile tailgate parties, starting and ending at the Metrodome! These tours will be “mixers”, you can sign up for them individually – you don’t need a party of 16. We will be on the mall in front of the Metrodome this Sunday, July 20, from 11am-1pm to advertise this new tour. If you’re going to the game, come by and say “hi!” Check out the promotion on our “Routes” tab at http://www.pedalpub.com.

AMSTEL LIGHT BUYS A PEDALPUBTM
You may have seen the new Amstel Light commercials, and were surprised to see a PedalPubTM prominently featured. Amstel Light has become PedalPubTM‘s first customer, and has bought a PedalPubTM from us for use in their summer promotions! The first promotion was held on May 15th, and featured a three-hour PedalPubTM tour down Amsterdam Avenue in New York City! Visits by the Amstel PedalPubTM to upcoming cities include Boston, Chicago, Miami, Washington DC and San Francisco.
We are actively looking for expansion opportunities for the PedalPubTM throughout the country, as well as in Canada, Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean. If you would like to start an exciting new business, or know someone who might – have them contact us!
