By Val Vanderpool

SAN FRANCISCO (BRAIN) – Starting today, San Francisco-based bag maker Timbuk2 will host a series of nationwide events the company hopes will inspire urban adventures in Chicago, New York, Denver, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Venice, California. These Summer Sessions events will take place through September in its stores and include special deals, beer tastings and margaritas made with human-powered bike blenders.

“Summer Sessions is about kicking back and getting to know one another with a memorable experience.” said Timbuk2 CEO Patti Cazzato. “We’ve always been committed to improving life in cities through local manufacturing and designing long-lasting products for the urban commuter. This year, we wanted to take it a step further by providing a space where we can invite the local community to come hang with us.”

Each city will take on a distinct set of partnerships with an array of hometown favorites, amounting to over 100 collaborations with local breweries, musicians, museums, non-profits and more. A snapshot of storewide and regional event highlights for each store include:
