I had other plans for an Earth Day post but instead, I am supporting the #StopCISPA Boycott.
If WordPress makes it possible, I will black out my site until Tuesday.
For now, this cat (which you can download and upload to facebook and twitter to explain your absence), video, and message from Anonymous will have to suffice.
What is CISPA?
In case you don't have this leather wine rack for your bike, here's the way to picnic in style on this bicycle built for two--to have a picnic! Complete with safe storage and travel options for your adult beverages of choice!
Wouldn't this bicycle be perfect for Burning Man? Or for wheeling around the scenic country roads of wine country?
Every election my son rolls, walks, or scooters with me to the polling place down the street and helps me cast my ballot. (Related: blog post about the post election party four years ago where kids weren't allowed.)
This year, because he has science club and I am teaching today, he wanted to get up at 6am and go with me to the polls at 7am.
Lucky for everyone, happy hour lasted all night in celebration of the Drakes Dry Hopped IPA and the Beer Fest in downtown across the street from the Mission. If you go during Happy Hour (usually M-F 4-7pm), you MUST get the $2.5o house made chips!
Also this weekend,according to the New Belgium Website,
“New Belgium Brewing’s cycling circus, Tour de Fat, is coming back to L.A. for one day on Saturday, September 15 at L.A. State Historic Park. Tour de Fat rookies and veterans alike are encouraged to grab a bike and join us for a whimsical day of entertainment and two-wheeled revelry, all while raising money for C.I.C.L.E., Bicycle Kitchen and Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition.
For those who haven’t experienced Tour de Fat, it is a thrilling rite of passage that includes an unparalleled costumed bicycle parade, New Belgium beer, eccentric entertainment, local food, unusual bike contests and much more. The Bike Parade begins at 11 am from L.A State Historic Park, but be there early to register.Performances by: Los Amigos Invisibles, Sssnakenstein, Yo-Yo People, and Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds.
Sounds a bit like an ArtRide, eh?
One of these days, we’re going! But tomorrow is picture day for soccer, then we’re going camping.
