Bike night tonight was rather fun. When the boy got home we hopped on the bike and rode off to the library so that I could pick up some books I had on reserve. I went and found a book that was in the stacks first and checked out. As we were walking over to the reserves booth we heard a man quite audibly laughing at us in our bike gear. We both kind of looked at each other and said “what was that all about?” Once we got to the reserves booth with their wonderful outward facing window we realized what he had been laughing at. The skies had opened up and it was pouring. 🙂 Woops! We got my book and then hung out in the library gift shop for a few minutes until the rain passed. (Our library gift shop sells peaches and cream yarn, how cool is that?)
Once the rain cleared up we got back on the bike and decided to head uptown to find something to eat. There is an Old Bag of Nails in town so we stopped to grab a bite. Fair warning this place is always crowded. Normally as a party of 2 we can squeeze into a table or sit at the bar fairly quickly no matter where and what time we go to eat. This was not the case here. On the bright side the food was quite yummy. If you ever go there and decide to order the chicken breast sandwich you are in for a treat. When they say chicken breast, they mean the WHOLE chicken breast. Talk about a filling sandwich. 🙂
Then it was off to the actual bike meet-up. We keep trying to meet-up with a gentleman from the boy’s bike forum who also attends the weekly meet-up but we keep only finding his bike and not him. One of these days we will find him.
