Yesterday started with Jen and I heading over to Queen Anne for the tricycle race. We got there early and decided to wander around what appeared to be a mostly residential neighborhood. Within a few blocks we stumbled upon Macrina Bakery and we decided to give their delicious brunch a try. Sometimes life’s surprises and unexpected things turn out to be the best. Their brunch was so good.
Filled with delicious food, we headed back to where the race was to begin. Outside Targy’s Tavern we were disappointed to find only a handful of tricycles. We thought about waiting out some time inside Targy’s but realized upon entering that the place reeks of stale beer and cigarettes so we quickly rebounded for the door.
Jen and I waited outside for awhile and quickly caught on that the few people that were there were obviously all close friends… except for this one guy who showed up on the most amazingly modified tricycle ever. This thing was pretty sweet and you could tell he was quite proud of it. My favorite part was that he had a bike lock for it.
So, I’m ashamed to say that once Jen and I realized the turnout, we aborted the mission before the race even began and decided to head in the direction of Capitol Hill to work on a project (project details coming real soon.) But if you want more Tricycle Race coverage look here and here.
While on the hill we stopped by to check out Grey Gallery and Lounge which both Jen and I are eager to go back to experience. Have any of you been there?
