It's pretty fruity for the most part , but generally fun because all the business's that are having open houses have free cocktails and little treats like cupcakes or pizza slices . It's a good free buzz and by the time you've done the whole tour you're more than likely stuffed as well .
Anyhow , while walking around and checking shit out , we went into this bike shop called Velo Cult . It caters mainly to the fixed gear & track bike crowd , but also has regular bike stuff , gear , etc . I bought a neat wicker basket for Amy's bike there and the guy asks " does anyone want a beer ? " Amy & my buddy Mark take him up on it of course , but since I don't drink beer I say so , and no thanks . Being the savy business man that he is , he bust out with , " how about a little Makers Mark ? "
Well that's how our walk about started off . A few more fingers of the Mark & we're off to see what the heck else is happening .
We get around the block and hear some music coming from a house . LIve music , of the rockabilly trio type . Not particularly good , but live so worth checking out regardless . So were walking up to check out the sock hop and start seeing bikes parked on the street in front of the crowd . There were a few Lambrettas , a D type that I didn't get a picture of and this LD that was really clean .
Then as I'm looking at the scooter I notice this lonely soldier resplendent in it's wear & tear and obvious miles that have passed beneath these tires . Other than the sort of dopey upside down clubmans , this thing was amazing . Check the rediculous paint job !
Total survivor , or an amazing fake . . . one way or another this bike was a treat for the drunken senses .
