03/14/2010: "ArtCycle in East Hollywood"
Gina and I rode over to ArtCycle 2010 last night, and had a great time meeting up with folks we knew from the velo-community, looking at bikes and crafts, and just generally relaxing in East Hollywood. Santa Monica Boulevard was closed from Vermont to Hillhurst and given over to human beings and human-scaled technology (except for some overly-loud recorded music pumped outta sound systems that completely overwhelmed the bluegrass band I was trying to hear).
Gina took some pix with her iPhone, and played with the effects settings on a couple of them; here they are to give you a tiny taste of it in case you weren't in LA or couldn't get over there:
Metro provided valet bike parking; the two in the center are ours. Just being together with our kind.... Hanging out amid the booths. Carolina Fontoura Alzaga and her "chaindelier," a lamp made of old bicycle chains.
We didn't do any of the gallery tours, nor did we sample wares of any of the 20 food trucks lined up there--though we did inspect the menus carefully. With Pure Luck
and Scoops only three blocks away, we knew our duty....
