I thought that bright orange paint was left over from the road crews that paint those "X"'s on the road.

Best effort at Ali/Bike pic:


Look for Ali in the back corner of the parking lot (hidden about 3 feet from the end of the retaining wall, marked by an "A"):



View to hide:


View from hide:


The clue: Ali was hungry, and was looking for a 24 hour diner (it seems SB12 has missed several lunches with Ali to go on a x-country ride. . . ). I said "fine. I'll take you to one that is an Arlington institution, for at least the past 43 years. Perhaps a night-time grabber(s) will stop in for a bite to eat."

To find Ali, look for the place that Bob Marley and Archie's wife might name their diner.

Happy Tagging!

Nice tag. But I think the only way I could find it is to get stumbling drunk and wander around at 3am. That may not work too well on a bike.

(Grabber should have to post "pie pics"!)

Glad to hear it; was beginning to think players were waiting for BETTER WEATHER!

I'll clarify a clue; Jennifer Jones won her Oscar playing the title role in the movie, "Song of Bernadette."
(In "Duel In The Sun," a later flick, Jennifer Jones' role was not so . . . well, "saintly!")

The tag site was across the street from St. Bernadette's Catholic Church, Springfield.

Perhaps a late night snack is in order, anyone interested in meeting for some food?
