Any of the above would work, actually, though other beer would be preferable. I just don't like Yuengling.

Bikes & Beer are speaking my language. What are the details for this glorious event?

The homeless guy (I forget his name) that busses tables for tips at Oscars is awesome.

Might I suggest some Friday night action? Come on, you can't all be too cool like Max who's biggest dilemma is which parties to go to on Friday night. I'm a 9 to 5 guy, and Friday is my night to go whoop it up. Starting next week we could meet somewhere (Love?) and bike some new and interesting route with the goal of ending up at _________ (insert your fav bike-friendly bar here) I'll put up the first suggestion. As P_a_P likes good beer, lets make it a place that has Duvel, Delerium and ChChChChChimmyChimay: Grace Tavern 23rd and South.

I would like to second this. Chimay sounds awesome to me right now, in fact. Must not start drinking at 4.

Red Riding Hood and I decided to try out Grace Tavern last night. That place is pretty awesome. I'd definitely go again. So much La Chouffe and delicious fries... Yum.

I don't know how I never realized until the other day that they serve potcheen at McGlinchey's. It's only advertised in big letters on the wall. I think a trip to initiate the uninitiated is in order. Mmmmmmm....potcheen.

Here here. Rush hour traffic is to be considered. Where would the ideal Friday night ride take place? Head out to the Memorial Hall area to relive the glory of the NACCC? (not my glory, mind you) Take on the crazy whizzers of Kelly/West River Drive? Some cool places in West Philly that I know nothing about?

How about a BYOB ride? They're to hottest thing in new restaurants, why not start a bring-on-bike movement?

I think I'm in, as long as it's pretty relaxed. Being a girl I hate to go out to a bar and be sweaty..

Er wait.. I can't I have to have dinner with my parents, I forgot about my birfday.
