Time again for the monthly SFBMA meeting. Join us at Lennon Studios, 271 Dore St., between 6pm and 9pm this Thursday. Come out, join in, get stuff done.
Come out and join the SFBMA for our annual holiday party this Saturday, Jan. 10th, at 19 Heron St. Party starts around 6pm. We`ll be having the Chili Cooking Contest #2, so bring your best chili, a bowl, and a spoon. The best chili gets a cash prize! Get drunk and take a swing at the pinata that`s loaded with booze and prizes.
Until this past weekend, bike messengers to me were those crazy guys dodging around my SUV in traffic with ripped thighs and sick tattoos oozing a coolness that took me back to my High School days and made me feel awkward and insecure.
After attending the Quake City Rumble bike messenger event this weekend? Well, they still have ripped thighs and sick tattoos, but I also realized they have a camaraderie amongst them you wouldn’t believe, that there are more lady bike messengers than you can imagine, and that they’re all unnecessarily nice to intruders with cameras who don’t know anything about bikes.
