Join Artspace and Roll New Haven as they host a rolling tour of restaurants in the Newhallville and Dixwell neighborhoods. Participating restaurants include: Dope n Delicious, Tropical Caribbean, Wing Madness, Ricky D’s Rib Shack and Orchid Cafe.
The tour will begin at the corner of Canal and Webster Streets, looping through both neighborhoods and ending at the ConnCAT building. We will spend 15-30 minutes at each restaurant. Ample food will be included, additional food and drink for purchase. Chairs and tables are available at each location for rest.
Bring your wheels! Skateboards, rollerblades, scooters are welcome. We recommend all participants ride with a helmet and protective clothing. This event is for ages 16+ (because of the long inner-city route,) and all participants under 18 must ride with a chaperone. We will equip the caravan with a front and back rider to ensure the group stays together. Although it will be fairly cool at the end of October, please bring water. Riders may want to consider bringing a bike lock for stops in public locations.
