Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

DC: Pirates' Epic 3-State Margarita Relay

ok, so it's really two states and one taxation-without-representation-colony-hoping-to-become-a-state, but we'll call it three states, for the sake of discussion...

CALLING ALL PIRATES!
The drunken (and sober, for your straightedge kids) pillaging continues!

Following the great success of our post critical mass sparks-foraging, burrito-eating, champagne-in-the-bottle toasting, highlife guzzling Friday, we are off to our next adventure on the mighty seas of pavement.

the EPIC TRI-STATE MARGARITA RELAY!
meetup Tuesday, 6pm, at Sherwood. (also known as the polo circle. also known as franklin square. could possibly be labelled as 14th & K NW)

Bring your ID and some cash, as we ride for margaritas in the Free State, the Capitol Colony, and the scary scary south.
If you're under 21, that's cool, since it's more restaurants than bars anyway, so you'll get in. Really.

Running late? PM me fore a cell phone #.

booger, no fear, if i have anything to do with it, they'll be there.
they followed me to work this morning, they're just doing their job i guess.


in other news,

I'm looking for appropriate margarita distribution point in Bethesda.
Can't think of one off the top of my head, and i'm having trouble finding a guide/recomendation.

anyone?
anyone?

i was assuming Austin Grill. sure, it's white-people-mexican food, but it's like 1/2 block off the capitol crescent trail, which I assumed was part of our routing.

so maybe... cap crescent to Austin Grill. Wisc to Tenleytown for drink at Guapo's. Wisc down to key bridge, up Wilson Blvd to Mexicali Blues. or some such?

chimbles that route is cool with me. i don't mind austin grill's rita's. they're kinda tastey.

can't wait to ride though. today it doesn't look like im going to be able to get in the miles. aside from the 15 commute. got a busy night you know.

and emily!!! WTF doll, I was looking forward to your company on the way home on friday, and now to find out i you're not going to ride on tuesday. well it saddens my black pirate heart. we're going to have to do some thing about this.

could it be?

at last we get to use it!!!

what? are you not waterproof? does your mighty steed not sail the puddly waters of the streets? can your clothes not be laundered and your person showered after a night of puddle jumping fun?

no rain shall stand in the way of our voyage!

ok, so realistically, to hell with the rain. I'm riding anyway, and i'm pretty sure the majority of other riders will too.

I rode for 2 hours in last night's storms. It was good fun, but at times I couldn't even keep my eye's open.

Not going to make the margarita relay tonight though. No particular excuses, just that I've done plenty of waking up with grass etc in my mouth.... in fact enuf for a lifetime or two.

Have fun though, and stay reasonably safe.

your loss! if it's the alcohol you're concerned about, though, don't let that hold you back. We're not *making* anyone drink.
