I'm a day late on the post but my book learnin' is coming along just fine. Thanks for asking.
The new owner of the recently reopened Magic Lantern Theater, Joe Davis, invited the FBC to come watch a movie and have some beverages. We struggled over the movie selection and when we found it extremely difficult to find a proper copy of Rad, Joe opted to show two very popular 80's films and they did not disappoint. In the small theater he was showing Breakin'. IMDB describes it as:
"A struggling young jazz dancer meets up with two break-dancers. Together they become the sensation of the street crowds. Features ICE-T in his film debut as a club MC."Why would you not own this movie? As for the large theater, we were shown Quicksilver:
"Jack Casey (Kevin Bacon)used to be a hot-shot stock market whiz kid. After a disastrous professional decision, his life in the fast lane is over. He loses his nerve and joins a speed delivery firm which relies on bicycles to avoid traffic jams of San Francisco, is attracted to a fellow bicycler, Terri, and befriends Hector, a budding entrepreneur. Can Jack regain his nerve and his self-respect, and rebuild his life on a more sound basis?" also from IMDB Written by Reid GagleI don't know what a 'speed delivery firm' is but you have to enjoy this movie. If not for the disturbingly odd fitting pants on Kevin Bacon then for the handleba-rection. That's right. Watch the entire movie for a one second moment where you will laugh yourself into wetting your own ill fitting britches. Also, the comments from the peanut gallery where pretty good, too.
Again, thanks to Joe Davis and the attentive staff at Magic Lantern for the free movie and delicious refreshments. And another thank you to our friends at Doma Coffee for their contribution to our great night.
After all that, we still had to go ride our bikes. Being that we started earlier and in a different spot, it was only natural that we head to The Swamp. We always start there but we never stick around long enough to enjoy the band. This time we did and it was awesome as usual. Unfortunately, I had to leave early. That shit won't learn itself.
Clear, 46 degrees: 125+ riders
Here is your fair warning about the upcoming ride. We are having a ride on October 31st. Due to the November full moon falling on the 2nd, we will move it up a couple of days to Fiascoween.
Also, get out there and get your costume. There are several outlets for stuff you can buy but you have enough crap in your closet you can throw together. Be advised that you will have to pedal in this getup and if you have extensive headgear you may be asked to remove it briefly for getting carded at the party. Did he say party? He did in fact say party.
We will be attending a super secret party just for the FBC. So if you find out about it, do me a favor and don't go blabbing it around town. There will be kegs, wine, a band, snacks, an indoor/outdoor beer garden, a fire pit and a costume contest. Please wear a costume. Don't just show up in sandals and socks and say you dressed like your Dad. Though, if you show up in ONLY sandals and socks, now that would be a costume. Small, but a costume.
OCTOBER 31ST - FIASCOWEEN
NOVEMBER - no Fiasco
DECEMBER 5TH - FESTIVUS
DECEMBER 31ST - BLUE MOON/NEW YEARS EVE
If you need something to do in November, there will be a revival of the popular Fixed The Race series. That will happen on November 3rd at 7:00pm from the Riverfront Park Fountain. Their blogspot.
