It’s Monday night, what are you going to do? Well, if you haven’t decided, there’s plenty of options.
The Vinings Village Civic Club, which recently donated a lovely antique, standing full length mirror to the Pace House, is conducting its first fall meeting at . All residents are invited to the 6:30 p.m. gathering.
Not far away at , The Smyrna Academy of Excellence will hold another informational meeting tonight from 6-7 p.m. Come listen and ask questions about this new Smyrna charter school that is set to open in July 2013.
If exercise is in your thing, why not pedal on down the Silver Comet Trail on your bike? Every Monday night, our friendly neighborhood shop leads a group ride departing the shop at 6 p.m. for a jaunty 25-mile trek through Smyrna, Mableton, and Austell.
“There are a few sprint points, two are KOM climbs, and there is an uphill sprint close to the end of the ride,” according to the shop’s website. No need to RSVP, just show up at the shop, ready to pedal hard, socialize, and have a blast. The bike enthusiasts at the store say “It's a lot of fun, and pretty challenging.”
A bicycle with a motor? Smyrna Bicycles is pumped about the brand new “pedalec” hybrid bike in stock called the Giant Twist. It requires pedaling before a 250-watt front hub motor kicks in, but if your goal is to bike your commute to work (with just a bit of assistance) then this amazing vehicle could be the answer.
For a different type of sporting activity, hosts its In-House Poker League every Monday evening beginning at 7:30. It’s free to enter and nightly and quarterly prizes are awarded.
And not too far from there is video trivia with DJ Tom Russo at beginning at 7:30 p.m. And with not one, but two Monday night NFL games on the tube, according to the Twisted Taco facebook page, “Woohoo!’’
