Also: I have to stop at a nerdy computer store and buy a firewire drive enclosure first, so I might be slightly late.

Have fun tonight. I'm off to the Cadillac Lounge apparently.

Eugene, thanks for the black black. It should keep me going for a bit. Rob, I picked up your stem. It was 13 + change. I'm back on campus on Tuesday.

I think that might also be related to the "**** the contract guys" factor as well.

well.. as I said in my original post, I may have completely fabricated the name, BUT, I was talking about the place right at the North-East corner of Augusta/Baldwin. The place that looks like a shack with the stools on the sidewalk.

Is this offer for non-BFers as well? I have a friend in desperate need of a bike, but his budget is small. He would still make a donation to BMEF or some such though.

On that note, I'm heading to Jet Fuel

That was an awesomely fun bike to ride around in the winter though....
I'm feeling a huge urge these days for some freewheel action, so a brake is definitely still in my future. I'm thinking either the Bontrager, Wound-Up or On*One straight blade carbon disc fork.

You mean Louie's, which I only know because I know everyone who works there. That place rules, best place to have a coffee and watch people in the city.

Try hotels and private clubs. Usually good places. I like the Granite Club, worked there for a few years. Nice place. I'll ask around and see what the word is. Do you want to apprentice or just work? Depends I suppose if you are an apprentice student or full time 2 year course. Apprentices get paid crappier than aquatic techies...er dishwashers. I started at $7.00/h years ago at my first apprenticeship. Wasn't all bad, place was staffed by slightly dimwitted waitress who happened to all be stick thin models. Throw a little fois gras their way and they went crazy. A little of the kitchen booze went a long way with them too.

This time of year catering is a great gig, parties are starting and Christmas is when people spend stupid money on cavier and canapes at 300% markups. Love it. Started some gigs today.
