Nomad World Pub Benefit and Courage Center bennie for bicycle enthusiast Chris Zito

A fundraising benefit - Rubber-side Down - for Chris Zito & The Courage Center will be held on Thursday June 2nd at The Nomad World Pub ( ) and will feature an eclectic evening of live music, a spaghetti dinner, a huge silent auction w/ bikes, gear, bar tabs, concert tickets and much more! (Also featuring $2 PBR and $2 Double Diamond pints all night!)

Chris, a former bicycle courier and a current employee at Quality Bike Products, as well as a doorman at The Nomad, sustained serious head and neck injuries while mountain biking in mid-April . While he was recently released from the hospital, Chris is still unable to work and has amassed significant medical expenses.

Proceeds from the event, including; a portion of bar sales, 100% of the silent auction revenue and 100% of the recommended $10 donations at the door will be split between Chris’ outstanding medical expenses and Minneapolis’ Courage Center, which provides rehabilitative services to those in need.

Bands which are graciously donating their time include;

Killing Grace – 12am
4130 – 11pm
The Liquor Pigs – 9:30pm
