WAR LXXXII - Football!

Are you ready for some football?

Football season kicks off this weekend and I am glad because frankly, I couldn't wait any longer.

It is time for the Annual Football Tribute Bike Ride.

We will meet at everyone's favorite pre-game headquarters - The Crown & Anchor at 6pm for burgers and beer.

Then we begin to lap DKR Stadium in anticipation of the season. Hook 'em Horns.

We will also hit Scholtz Beer Garten (of course) and any other Football friendly establishment we can think of.

Meet - 8/31 - Crown & Anchor 6pm Ride leaves at 7pm (sharp)

Get your Horns Up.

...and watch this as well...

WAR LXXX - Family Reunion

Attendance to the WAR has been well, spotty at best. I know, I know - this is the pot calling the kettle black.

WAR 80. Eighty. That is three years of the WAR. Rain or shine, cold or f'ing hot.

But, you haven't been in a while. What, do you have a better group of bike riding/beer drinking friends? Are you too good for the WAR?

So, here we are at WAR 80. Let's celebrate by making this a Family Reunion. Attendance is required. Be there.

We will meet at Little Woodrow's - 6th and Nueces. Meet at 6pm for beers. We leave by 6:45 in order to get a nice ride in before we hit Blues on the Green. Big show this week with Dale Watson and Guy Forsyth. If you are hungry, there are some local food vendors at the show.

Then we will hit another mystery stop after the show.

MEET: Wed, 7/20 - 6pm - Little Woody's on 6th.

Attendance is mandatory - don't make me come after you.

Bring - lights locks and friends.

WAR LXXIX - Ragin Cajun

Hoo Wee, Boy. It is hot out there, I gar-ron-tee.

Beat the heat tonight with a few cold beers and a dip in some cold water somewhere.

Plus, one of my favorites, Marcia Ball plays Blues on the Green tonight. She will have her red beans cooking, and she keeps her fingernails long so they click when she plays the piano.

Get yer belly full of creole at the Shoal Creek Saloon. Meet at 6pm, ride at 7pm.

WAR LXXVIII - Rain dance

So I am up pretty early because my daughter is having tubes put in her ears. So, I'm getting the ride out now.

Some decention in the crowd. Some want to got to blues on the green to see suzanna chofell and the bright light social hour. Others just want to ride around and drink beer.

So, let's just meet in the middle and decide.

Meet: the local. Formally little woodys, formally the showdown. On guad.

Meet today at 6pm. Ride leaves at 7pm. Sharp. Bring it.

WAR LXXVII - Bob on the Green

WAR 77 folks. We will pay tribute to Austin's own Bob Schneider who opens this season's Blues on the Green. Bob was the first live show I ever saw in Austin - Joe Rockhead - Student Union Ballroom - 1993. After that I remember slamming leftover beers at Scholtz's at a Lounge Lizards show...and thousands of live shows later, we meet again, Mr. Schneider.

Meet at Woody's on 6th at 6pm. Ride leaves promptly at 7pm so we can get a good ride in before we hit BOTG at Zilker. There will be a stop for refreshments to bring to the big show.

See you there, Tarantulas.

WAR LXXVI - Ode to the master (haha)

The original bike dude. He was friends with hard cores, like Chairy.

He drank tequila.

He danced on bars.

He rode bikes.

He....is one of us.

Let's pay tribute to the man, the myth, the Pee Wee.

Meet at The Pour House at 6:00pm. Ride leaves at 7pm and we will go all the way to Top Notch, for burgers and Pee Wee. It is BYOB, so, we'll have to make a pit stop.

Be there...and don't reveal the secret word.
