This weekend rocks Midtown. Bikes, BBQ and beer. Here… we…go.
I picked up some Magic Hat #9 last night. I love me the Magic Hat.
I woke up early, had breakfast, then drove to Republic Coffee. I had my iced coffee and read the news. The Commercial Appeal reports that the newspaper will start a “paid” edition of the newspaper soon. If you want to read more than 10 stories a month, you will have to pay for the newspaper. I remember when the New York Times went to a paid status. And I stopped reading the New York Times. It is just that simple. The Commercial Appeal wants to charge for the content the writers produce? I WOULD pay if I believed the content was great, or good. Unfortunately, the content is not that good. Read more about the story here, from the Commercial Appeal.
I finished my coffee and headed to the Jewish BBQ Festival. What? Yes, this is a very cool festival. I even sampled some BBQ from one team. I have to say the sauce was AWESOME. Make sure you attend this festival next year.
So we were driving to the Jewish BBQ Festival, when I spotted a garage sale with bicycles. I turned around to check out the bikes. $10 later I had my Schwinn Varsity bicycle. Surprisingly the bike was in good shape. When I arrived home, I pumped up the tires and tried the bike out. After a few adjustments, the bike ride was fine. The only down side? No shocks on this old bike. The re-hab will take a week at least, but I should have the bike on the street soon.
Okay, I had a great day. Get out and have fun Midtown. This weekend was great, but next weekend will be great as well. See you here tomorrow for more bikes, coffee and beer.
