HOT ITALIAN Midtown launched a pop-up shop for PUBLIC Bikes (PUBLICBIKES.com) and Rickshaw Bagworks (rickshawbags.com). PUBLIC Bikes owner Rob Forbes, founder of modern furniture retailer Design Within Reach, and Mark Dwight, former CEO of Timbuk2 Bags and founder of Rickshaw Bagworks, both based in San Francisco, appeared at the launch event. PUBLIC Bikes currently has showrooms in non-bike shops such as The Gap (San Francisco), and Tretorn and J. Crew (New York). HOT ITALIAN is the first restaurant in the country with a PUBLIC pop-up shop.

That night, HOT ITALIAN was also awarded the “Bicycle Friendly Business” award (Bronze level) by the League of American Bicyclists in Washington D.C., becoming the first restaurant in California to achieve this standing.
