The 20,000-square-foot Williamsburg creative network space known as the 3rd Ward—which we adore for its art shows, movie nights, workshops, etc., etc.—is turning three. And to celebrate its birthday, organizers are closing down Stagg Street to host a massive block party featuring music, drinks, BBQ, live-screen printing, and much more. Best of all, they’re giving out free Green Bikes (you guessed it: environmentally friendly rides). Catch is you’ll have to fork over $39 a month for the 3rd Ward’s membership to receive your own Green Bike. However, $39 a month gets you access to health insurance, unlimited use of the 3rd Ward’s working space, free admission to all of their events, and a couple of other goodies. Not a bad catch at all.
