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)

BBQ at msngr's gazebo

Come BBQ with us at MSNGR's place.

So msngr has a very nice gazebo at his place and it is sadly under used. So we've decided to have a little gathering of people eating meat/fake-meat and other perishables in large and very excessive quantities at said gazebo.

The catch to this is that you must bring something... soda, beer, food or whatever and you must tell us ahead of time so we don't have 20 people bringing beer and no food. There nothing wrong with beer, just that its a bit hard to grill.

So I'm gonna bring some chicken/drumsticks (of the real variety) and some beer of course.

Grillin' will commence at 6pm at msngr's gazebo. The supposed thunderclouds should have dissipated by then.(we all know there ain't gonna be no rain, weather reports have been wrong since the birth of weather reports and especially lately in NYC it's been super wrong so we'll be fine)

So the super gazebo is located in the beautiful neighborhood of Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. Its on Atlantic and right off of Nostrand. PM me for exact address and let me know what you are bringing. Hope to see you all there.

And how is anybody supposed to get to know you with that attitude?

As for me, I have a prior engagement and sadly won't be able to make it. Plus the weather sucks for a BBQ.

I'm marinating some chicken right now. I know that most of you know that I'm sarcastic and have a sharp witted wordplay, but the previous statement is not an aphorism for anything. I'm really marinating some chicken. In Barbecue Sauce. Mmmmmmmmm
