    PHILADELPHIA! I will be in you!

    Tuesday night thru Thursday. My Dad's getting a surgery at Jefferson. (serious, but it's elective. Not life threatening. no need to rush to the hallmark for sympathy cards. But thanks, I appreciate the gesture).

    Who wants to hang out and show me the city of Brotherly Love? I've never ridden my bike around you, philadelphia. Oh...and I'll need a couch, if there's a couch to sleep on. I'll be out of the way...spending most of the day at the hospital or cruising around. All I need is a place to sleep and a bar to get a beer at in the evening. Anyone who can put me up for the night has a couch in Brooklyn waiting for them whenever they need one.

    Welcome to the city of Brotherly Love.

    what time do you get in? cause taco tuesdays at tattoed mom's is fun sometimes. i haven't been there in a while...$1 tacos, beef or vegetarian, and $1.50 pabst tallboys and half off margaritas. i don't know what time it goes til, but i would be down for doin some riding around and then eating/drinking or vice versa. perhaps we could get some more BFers to join...

    tuesdays some people meet at the art museum steps at 11:30 PM and ride down to 8th and washington to get freshly baked pretzels.

    thursday night is thrashing thursdays. meet at the south end of love park at 10:00 PM and go on a nice little five mile ride.

    i just moved back into town after living in brooklyn and connecticut, so i haven't been on either of these rides for some time now. i'm pretty sure the details haven't changed on either of them, and i will definitely be meeting up for the tuesday night pretzel ride, and tentatively will be at thrashing thursday.

    I'm gonna try & catch the 7pm or 7:30pm bus. Gotta pick up my bike at track* & deposit the other bike at home. Or something like that. I haven't really figured out the plan yet. So I guess I'll be in Philly around 9.

    Jazz & Tacos seriously sounds awesome

    Go to 218 on South Street. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays there is usually a drunk George, a few riders, busted women, and Dio is on the jukebox.

    If you want to go to the Ministry, PM me, there's a chance I will be there. Other than that, I can't be of much more help. The above are all good suggestions. (with the exception of anything on South St.)

    If it's worth the going it's worth the ride.

    Yeah, I'm not sure how they schedule him. He did it this past week, but I don't think he's doing it this Wednesday.

    thanks for all the lodging offers & entertainment suggestions. I gotta remember why I'm actually in town though & make sure I wake up early (verrry early) tomorrow morning. Hope to see some of you tonight nonetheless.

    I totally ignored the staying part. I'm not a jerk, really.

    If you haven't found a couch yet, I have a spare room you're welcome to crash in. I'm in North Philly (not far from the Ministry). You'd be woken up to a crying baby every morning at 5am, so getting up early wouldn't be a problem. PM if you still need.
