WAR XXXVI - Winter??

Looks like the first cool front of the year descended today. But, looking at the weather on Wednesday, it could be warm or cold. That is Texas weather for you. If you don't like it...just'll change.

Each of the establishments on the week's WAR can be enjoyed both in and out of doors. So, we are covered. Make sure to bring your lights. It's dark and a lot of the teenagers will be lining up to see the new Twilight movie. Keep away from those vampires!

The Ride - Wed, 11/18
- Dinner: Shoal Creek Saloon: 6pm ish
- Depart Shoal Creek Saloon, 7:15pm - sharp!
- Planned stops: Shoal Creek Saloon, Uncle Billy's Brew's & BBQ, Mean Eyed Cat

Also, work (damn you gainful employment) has summoned me to New York City this week, so we are in need of a leader. UPDATE - WAR regulars Charlton and Eric will be leading this ride. Thanks, fellas.

WAR XXXV - Knight Rider

So this weekend marks my least favorite of all holidays. The dreaded 'Fall Back'. I think we should officially change from Daylight Savings Time to Daylight Wasting Time. It sucks.

But, hey...we can bitch and moan about it (and we will) or like a Norwegian Death Metal Band, we can embrace the darkness. So, bust out your headlamps, handlebar lights and change out the batteries in your blinky, because this week we ride in the night.

And as a shout out to the original Knight Rider, let's get drunk and eat cheeseburgers, too.

This week's ride will feature the darkest bars in Austin. The Cloak Room, The Hole in the Wall and Nasty's. But them together and you MIGHT have one window. Embrace the darkness.

Meet: Five Guys Burgers at 6:15pm (32nd and Guadalupe). Ride will depart promptly at 7pm.

Bring: Lots of lights and a friend.
