Fixed turnout for Halloween CM? PHILLY

I figured this is a good spot to find out who will be out there this Friday. Most of you know this is the biggest CM ride of the year. Regardless of what y'all think about Critical Mass as a concept or whatevs (I'm not a huge fan myself) I had a blast last year: I didn't even know it was going on, as I got off the train from Yardley with my bike on my shoulder I heard yelling, hooting and hollering from the top of the stairwell. I got out onto the street and there were countless goofballs on bikes rolling down JFK blvd. I jumped right in and we toured to city to the (mostly) cheers of passerby and cars alike.

Do any of you Philly BFers have plans to ride? In costume? I'll be dressed as a working class stiff, unless I have time to go home after work and get changed, then I'll put on my tux and be a guy in a tux on a bike. Good one, eh?

So come on out, we'll pick a place to rally and have a good time. I'll bring the whiskey.

It's possible. My costume could be "Hey, I'm drunk."

You'll have to drink for both of us. I'm double booked for the 6pm slot. Don't ask, it's lame and I'd rather not talk about it. See y'alls next week.

I know. Lame-o. Family obligations and sh*t. Just be satisfied in knowing you're having more fun than me.
