Tonight, the Charleston RiverDogs mark the final Friday of the 2010 season with a special Fat Tire and Bike Night.

RiverDogs fans are encouraged to ride their bikes to the game to receive $1 off the walkup price of admission. Don't worry about where to put your bike, the Holy City Bike Co-op will be at the front gate with a special Bike Valet service. Not too shabby, huh?

In other "tire" news, the RiverDogs and the New Belgian Brewing Company are collaborating to present Fat Tire Friday. At tonight game, the brewing company will be raffling off their signature Fat Tire Ale red bicycle, the same bike pictured in the Fat Tire logo.

All proceeds from the raffle go the Costal Community Foundation and the family of late Edwin Gardner. Gardner, a local bicycling activist, was tragically killed while riding his bike in downtown Charleston on July 21st. The money raised from the raffle will benefit the same causes Gardner supported.

Tonight's game against the Greensboro Grasshoppers kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available online or by calliing (843) 577-3647.
