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)

I'd be down to ride tomorrow morning, where are we meeting? Copley, same place as usual? I'd love to get some breakfast, like waffles or homefries or something like that.
Where would we go? There's a shi*tty IHOP in brighton on soldiers field rd, kinda annoying to get to or the busy bee diner in brookline on beacon st, which is sorta close to copley..
10am, right?
Or we could just do a slowish ride around boston for a little bit in the morning, seeing what's happening at 10 am.
I really don't care what we do.
Who else is coming?

apparently the south st diner is very friendly to the courier/fixed gear group of boston, place is on the corner of south st and st. kneeland. the girls that work there put out a yearly calendar of softcore porn pictures of themselves, looks like a healthy waitstaff...

No-can-do on the 9 - 10, that'd be work time. Hell, I'm still trying to recover from whatever it is laid me low last week.

I'm a big fan of all of these places:

- Sorella's by my house
- Rosebud in Davis Sq.
- Bickfords on Broadway in Somerville (I cannot lie!)
- Umm... Some diner in South Boston maybe on Broadway... Silver metal exterior? Anyone?

Plus I've never been to Missippi's of Roxbury on Terrace Street and there's a hole in the wall kind of place off Washington on the other side of McGrath. Nothing special, but real basic and homey.

One wonders if the news of the arrest comes as a relief to the husband.

SO I would be into something on Saturday or Sunday. Rosebuds sounds good to me or maybe Soundbites. Really all I want is a plate of Migas and they are not to be found up this way.

Alright, let's get serious about this. I'm not sure if I'll be well enough, but I'm going to try. I rode to work yesterday and I thought I was going to die. I took the T today and I thought I was going to die. Pick your poison, I guess.

Anyhow, where are we going for breakfast? Will we be making any 21+ stops following? I'm down if I can breath. At some point I need to stop off on Newbury St. for a few to finish up the wifey's V-day gift (we delayed so that we can get restaurant accommodations without too much trouble).

Rosebud's got my vote.

So I haven't responded to this because I keep meaning to find time to think of other fun stuff we could add. But I haven't found the time and I'm not entirely sure where it all went. Maybe I haven't found the time and remembered to do this at the same time.

Anyhow, I think that plan sounds cool. We could head up to Davis via Mass Ave, eat up. I can't remember what it is but there's something at Rosebud that I remember always made me really happy plus they sell mimosas if you're so inclined. Then to make things interesting, head back via Somerville Ave to Union Square and over on Washington/Kirkland. Or we could go over the Prospect St. bridge to Inman Sq. and take Cambridge St. back up to Harvard Sq. to hit Charlie's. In any case I haven't been there in at least a few years.

Alternately we could skip Charlie's, come back through Union, stopping off at Tir na nOg (where I've actually never been).

Then we'd continue on Hub-bound where I would peruse the fruity crap at Lush while others would ride on.

How's that sound? We could meet at 9:30 or 10:00 or some other time.

Let's say flat-out, Copley @ 10a. We'll discuss Charlies, Tnn, or what over breakfast.

Can I get some RSVPs just so I have an idea if it's just a romantic getaway for me and Alexi or if this is some sort of actual group happening.
