    Should I Throw a Quickie Alleycat?

    some of our hosts from the BFFGMNG (salome and teadoggg) are coming to NYC for new year's weekend. i was wondering if there'd be enough interest to throw a BFFG mini-alleycat new year's eve (avoiding times square at all costs). i think i'd make it for BFFG people and out-of-towners and first time alleycatters only. whatdya think? is it too late?

    let me know what the interest level is and i'll get it together. prizes prolly won't be much, but we'll see.

    oh, and i'm sure you'll all have no problems with places to stay. we's good folk round these parts.

    I'll ride if I can make it back here from AZ. I'm almost positive I'll be back here in time.

    hey mareesha!

    QP, don't worry about the police. this would be a mini-cat (an alleykitten?) and i'd avoid the cop areas.

    ok, off to work, i'll check in later.

    Sounds like a good idea... get the heart pumping before a night of heavy drinking

    The irony here is that I'll be in Chicago that weekend. Sadness.

    I'll be in town but the chances of me having a working ride on New Years look... slim. We'll see. First-timer alleycat sounds fun tho

    i would want to come, but a fellow pirate is having a shindig (no goats invited!) that cannot be missed. so, i think most washingtonians would be out.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    salome and i were talking about it the other day and I think we rather do something like more of a "tour" than an alleycat.

    salomes out until this afternoon, but when she gets back, I'm sure she'll chime in. let's see what she says.

    Hey Msngr, got a question for ya:

    I can't make it to your neck of the woods for NYE but I'm hoping to get down to Chicago for ... whatever the hell "event" you guys held last summer. How much did you have to break your bike down to get it on the bus?

    My gf, her friend and I are planning on making a trip to NYC in the new year. Maybe I can meet up w/ some of the NY crew then and cause some trouble.

    Nope. I'm pretty sure that's exactly what he means

    no need to bring your bike.
    the race is: Who will come first.
