Staff Pick: Awesomefest 2010

The A-word gets tossed around a lot these days, but Awesomefest actually lives up to its proud title. In fact, even its beautifully redundant slogan - "A Triathlon of Awesome" - is spot-on. This year, the celebration of biking, movies and tattoos will include morning and evening rides, screenings of five "Dirty Harry" films and body art at Evolved.

It's a long haul of awesome: Things start out at the Gateway Film Center at 8 a.m., and the final cycling session doesn't leave until around 9 p.m. Registration costs $65, and proceeds from a silent auction will benefit nonprofit charity Asia's Hope.
