Classic Game Fest

Dig out those quarters and arcade tokens and buckle in, because Classic Game Fest is about to trigger a nostalgic flashback in Austin, TX. From July 30th – 31st, the Palmer Events Center will be filled with enthusiastic button-mashers displaying their passion for retro gaming. If your idea of gaming is less involved with the newest releases from XBox One and Playstation 4 and more in-line with chomping cherries with Ms. Pac-Man, then this celebration of throwback electronic bliss is all for you. One of the largest classic video game conventions in the United States, Classic Game Fest is a family-friendly …

California State Fair (2016)

In North America, summertime is here, and it’s time to indulge in sunshine and the edible delights of barbecue season! If you’re like us here at UrbanRide, you spent all winter working out just so you can sample every fried delicacy without shame. Okay, by “working out” we mean typing blog posts and arranging complex spreadsheets for shuttle transportation. It’s a new cutting-edge work-out routine, okay? Anyway, the California State Fair takes place in the lovely capital of Sacramento this year, from July 8th- July 24th. The fair features an array of treats no cardiac physician would likely suggest prominently …

National Medical Association (NMA) Annual Convention

Just take a minute and think about how many things have changed within the last 114 years. Barely footsteps into the 21st century, Teddy Roosevelt became the first American President to ride in an automobile in 1902. Cuba gained their independence. The first teddy bear was made. I mean, what were kids even attached to before teddy bears? Their toys were basically terrifying miniature scarecrows filled with straw and aggressive strains of poison ivy. But before we receive hate mail from the proud descendents of toy makers, let’s talk about the NMA. For the past 114 years, the National Medical …

MLB All-Star Game (2016)

This year the MLB All-Star Game will take place in sunny (and classy) San Diego, July 12th at Petco Park. The diamond is an absolute stunner and the San Diego Padres organization tends to agree, calling it “Architecturally magnificent, it celebrates the sea, the sky, the natural beauty, cultural diversity and unique spirit of our region.” But before we speak further about the magnificence of Southern California, a brief history lesson regarding the sport’s most famous exhibition game: Milwaukee, 2002. The scene of the crime of the century. This is the year the MLB All-Star Game ended in a tie, …

KENTUCKY DERBY (2016)

It’s horse-racing season, so throw on your finest seersucker suit or fanciest over-sized hat and head to The Churchill Downs Racetrack in Louisville, KY for the Kentucky Derby. You’re sure to have a grand ol’ time and see a medley of wild characters, including my grandmother, who goes every year specifically for the Mint Juleps. Speaking of family – word from the barn is Kentucky-bred competitor Uncle Walter will be ready to compete in the Kentucky Derby! I don’t care if he’s a 1,000 to 1 underdog, anytime you can bet on a horse that’s also an uncle – YOU …

Spring’s officially here, and if you’re in New Orleans, that means jazz is in the air. From April 22nd to May 1st, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival celebrates the Crescent City’s rich musical and cultural history. From the first performances of gospel great Mahalia Jackson and the legendary Duke Ellington, New Orleans has been the home of some of the greatest jazz innovators and a vibrant cultural melting pot.
