Friday and Friday

Last Friday I took the River Road home for the first time in probably a year.  In the time of my absence, the city of Minneapolis repaved the crappy biking/walking path and it's now like buttah.  Seriously, it was a great ride.  They not only repaved the blocktop, but redid almost all of the curb cuts so they are smooth transitions.  It makes a huge difference, and makes me want to take that alternate route a little more frequently.  Get out there and enjoy it now before the paths are overrun by people who can't walk in a straight line while pushing a stroller, talking on the cell phone, drinking from a plastic bottle of water and walking their dog on the 30 foot retract-o-leash completely take over.

The weather has been so nice this week, it might be time to declare "stop for a beer at Sea Salt" season open.  I'm tentatively thinking Friday the 23rd would be an excellent time to start what could, ideally, be a monthly event.  My commute puts me in the neighborhood roughly between 4:30 and 5.  If I get any interested parties, I can narrow it down further.
