    It sounds like fun, driving into the city at night. If my better half will give the OK, I'll be there ~8:30.

    Here is a brief description "Hawks Nest, one-half mile of twisting, narrow two-lane road cut into a mountainside overlooking the Delaware River just north of here. On one side of the highway is a nearly straight 100-foot-plus drop to the river. Just off the other shoulder is a mountain of solid rock."

    There is a cafe up there called Hawks Nest Cafe :doh, which is great place to take a break have a :1drink , grab a bite take in the views and head back. This part of the twisties is actually a favourite for car ads being filmed!

    Given the chance of rain this Tuesday maybe we need to bump it up to following Tuesday...

    I'm in. I live 4 blocks from the Ear (King St.) Inn.

    Summer's bike nights are a little bit of a "scene" (I get enough of that outside my SoHo window) but it's a great bar and it's got great chow.

    Sitting outside w a Guinness in hand, looking at bikes, model chics all around. Hell, just sitting there and watching the people who pull up in Z8's and Benteley's as they go into the trendy place cross the street's worth a trip there. See all kinds.

    I'll swing by tomorrow if anyone's goin.
