Dude, you didn't know about my accident? Thats how I can wear jeans like this.

Jokes aside, I lived on the same block as that court for two years and didn't get to use it.
I need to use it now.

redlight redlight is the best thing about this city. if you wanna get crazy try the dogfish red and white. $20 for a 750ml but totally worth it.

I'll be there tonight. If you are around, stop by and say hi. Mmm, Red and White... Brent's got a lot of good stuff that I intend on trying.

And then I will be back to you Philadelphia (since this is a Philly thread). Though who knows when I'll actually be on the pretzel ride again. Unless we start a 6am pretzel and egg + cheese ride.

I have my "barbque bike" set up.

Univega with a BOB YAK Trailer attached complete with Cooler, Grill, frisbees and the optional croquet set.

I would typically plan to meet up at Fairmount Park so we can run around like crazy people, but I have ridden it to Vally Forge as well; full of ice, beer, and veggie burgers.

its supposed to be rainy on sunday.

how about a saturday afternoon relaxed pace ride, maybe set up a barbeque in the park, if not we can grill at my place (but somebody has to bring a grill over)

we can turn it into "happy birthday luke, i love you, even though you are ****ing disgusting" at around midnight. everybody bring luke a dumb gift too.

whos up for this? meet at 3 at the washington square park (to add a couple miles to the ride), do fairmount park, stop to play some frisbee and/or bocce and then keep the ride going.

I'm already doing ****ing disgusting stuff on Saturday. As for rain, you're right that it doesn't look like the best day according to weather.com. Meh, maybe we'll get lucky, maybe we won't. I'll play it by ear.

Shouldn't you be updating your iraq blog or something so you don't have to go back to making coffee for a living?
