It's still Bike Week in Chicago—and we are in the midst of a new-bike-store surge. To mark the occasion, Bloomingdale's on Michigan Avenue is hosting an event this evening that's especially targeted to the bike-loving crowd.
From 6 to 8 p.m., the Gold Coast shop will host a launch party for the new Bike Share Backpack from Rebecca Minkoff ($195). Exclusive to Bloomie's, the nylon bag is made to be worn on a bike. It's lightweight but still sturdy, and has compartments for a water bottle, a laptop, and other goods like makeup.
At the launch party tonight, there will be cute thematic tropes like a health-food snack bar, a flip-book station, and an "Ask the Bike Expert" panel.
