Alright, suckas: I just bought a ticket on a big jet plane to Philly (yo!) for January 10 - 15. I'll be in NYC most of those days for a very important conference, but I WILL make a point to spend at least one night in Philly. I need some advice on where to drink. I also need a bike to borrow, should anyone feel so inclined. At the very least, I can offer you the amusement of watching a Florida boy freeze his nuts off. Maybe I'll buy you a drink. I like to drink drinks.

Thanks, Philly. With your help, we can erase this whole Union/Confederate miscommunication.

i'll be at the black sheep tuesday night until 2 something am... i know far too much about that super busy thing max speaks of...

but if ya'll cycle folks are so inclined feel free to stop in for some brew in your travels... the big red door on the corner of 17th and latimer...

as for the robbstory... thats a lovely spot for the drinking of drinks... most of my favorite spots lie in the higher priced center city area and the more dive-ish fishtown area... however i would recomend avoiding the uber priced olde city region... dumb trendy people huge crowds and 8 dollar drafts makes life feel not so fresh...

i may have a bi-cycle available as well... will you be needing it to travel to ny as well? or just for the time spent in philly?

best advice you can get... coming into philly... drink the local brew... it can be quite lovely (all things yards being personal favorites... but theres so much more)

The fame of you guys is spreading. First Ashley, now Max are becoming elite bike-celebrities. And to think, I could have been out there on the reborn Stella. Did they say when the article will come out? Who was the photog, Jeff Fuscoe?

wait. that dude that was there is doing a COVER story?! haha, is the pretzel ride really cover story material? how much can you possibly write about it? there was already an article in the metro about it a month ago or something. This is going to be goofy. Also, i agree that i can not decide if this is a good or bad thing for the pretzel ride.

hey folks -- I'm home for the holidays, and probably doing a few longish rides in this scary-nice global warming/el-nino mishmash. what else is happening bike-wise?

also, y'all may have seen my thread about philly <--> NYC. I'm thinking of riding from here to NY for the alleykitten, though I may go back a day or two beforehand. anybody potentially interested in riding it?
