    I went for a ride and solved the helmet problem by leaving it at home! wheelied the EXC up and down the parkinglot at work, then went to dirt lot to check it out on loose stuff, them my face froze solid with a perma-grin.

    We (I can say we, I'm a RI born and bred ex-pat living in the eastern Ct wasteland) weren't kicked out as much as we left to show the uptight bastards in Boston how its done.

    ok kids, since someone needs to herd, I'm going to toss this out.

    Wednesday, February 13
    The Mews Tavern (456 Main St., Wakefield, RI)
    6:30 pm

    I know this doesn't work with some of the schedules tossed out, but the week before is a URI away game and the place will be packed.

    If you like beer, you'll love the selection on draught.
    If you like scotch, you'll love Mews.

    and I forgot to add, great suggestions RhodeHazard...I love Fastnet but thought Newport not the most central of locations.

    I can probably make it but in the cage, was hoping it's close enough for a scooter ride but there is NO WAY I'm riding my scoot to South County in February :)

    Tying a Block Islandistan Burger & Bull trip into a beach camping event could be a lot of fun.

    Bumpity ba bump!

    Wednesday, February 13 at 6:30 pm at Mews Tavern, 456 Main Street, Wakefield, RI.

    Hey guys, me and the cheese are gonna be late (I've got a meeting with the Dean of the School of Business...I even told her it's interfering with my boyz), so if someone can grab a table, that'd be great.

    If you're coming, PLEASE post up so we can get a headcount. This will affect the SIZE of the table, which is, say it with me, going to be grabbed by the first person there.

    And yeah, the Scotch list is INCREDIBLE. Bring your virgin tastebuds, a DD, and I'll set you straight. Um, Laphroaig is in da house!

    I *want* to go, but I'm totally at the mercy of road conditions. Put me in right now for yes, but if the roads don't get much better after the rain tomorrow and the warm on Tuesday, I'll be a No on Wed morning. Unless, of course, someone will be passing by Groton and can slow down long enough for me to leap in their car on the way past.

    I am probably out. I was planning to be there but I have to be in NYC for work that day and I doubt I'll get back in time to head over to RI...

    If you're anywhere near H&H Bagels, can ya grab a baker's dozen of pumpernickel? Mmmm. They're on the Upper West Side, but you can get them at the cheese shop on Third Ave between 9th & 10th Streets. Cos, you know, I really, really like New York pumpernickel bagels. Y'know, depending on where you are.

    I'm supposed to be down towards the lower east side, cooper square I think it is.. But after thinking about it I wouldn't be surprised if NYC postpones the visit due to storm clean up.. I'll be underground via a manhole part of the time.. Not sure if they'll be ready for that sort of thing by wednesday AM but they probably will be..

    If you're at Cooper Square, the cheese shop is a couple of blocks north. It's worth the visit if you like cheese, and then there are the bagels. Before you go in, read all the signs. Once you're in line, KNOW what you want.

    Spin the big cube at Astor Place (and note the beavers! in the subway).

    Man, I think I should just move back, but where to store all the bikes?!

    They hardly got any snow this time through. I lived there in '93 when we got 33 INCHES in the city, and I still went to work. There was a knife fight at Kim's video on Avenue A...it was great 'cos the rest of us just sorta stood around watching as these two idiots went at it, waiting to get to the back to the foreign films or the naughty section.

    That's pumpernickel ;)

    Plan on making it.. but I got a massive head cold.. too much snow shoveling I guess :huh If I still feel like I have a water balloon stuffed up my nose I may have to take a rain check.
