War LXXI - BikeXSW
Whew. That was close. I swear the Hipsters almost won this time. Almost. The Williamsburg invasion threatened to take over our fair city. But in the end, they took their Toms shoes and went home quietly.
...and I did see some epic Hipsters. I saw a guy in old school Adidas sneakers, throwback sunglasses and full fucking leiderhosen. That, my friends, is a fashion statement. I think the statement is "I sure hope my trust fund doesn't run out"...but still...it's a statement.
I saw a guy in purple skinny jeans, Toms ballet style shoes, throwback sunglasses, plaid shirt....and just to paint a caricature of himself, he was carrying a giant sack of granola from Whole Foods. Seriously. PBR in one hand, sack of granola in the other.
So, this week, we are going to rock SXSW on our bikes. Meaning we will hit South Austin AND Southwest Austin.
Meet:Wed, 3/23, 6pm Wahoos Tacos SOUTH. Note - Wahoo's on 1722 SOUTH Congress.
We leave at 7pm (Sharp!) and head Southwest. Abel's, Doc's and the Crown will be visited. Yes, we will head North as well, but if we only head Southwest the circle we ride will become MUCH longer.
Bring lights locks and a friend. Oh...and bring your own sack of granola.
