Full Moon Fiasco XXVI

Well kids, this is it!

When: Fri, Feb 14th @ 7pm
Where: Eich's
Theme: Formal Birthday Suit Attire

This be our FBC Sandpoint Birthday ride!  It has been 2 years of fun times, great rides and making new friends.  That all sounds positive...BUT now we enter our TERRIBLE TWOS.  I've read this can be marked by "mood changes, temper tantrums and the excessive use of the word NO."

This next ride will prove to be amazing.  Now I know there are a lot of things going on this particular night: a marching band, V Day, etc.  Whatever.  Grab your honey (or your BFF), your bike and lights, throw on some fancy duds and come ride with us.

At our destinations there might be some live music.  There definitely will be some good drinks.  There might be some dancing.  There definitely will be some giving aways of free shit.  There might be guy in a man hammock.  There definitely will be a couple annual awards and such.

You see, there really just might be a lot going on.  See you there!

Full Moon Fiasco XXV in Review

50ish people in varying hats braved the rather cool and very foggy eve to come on down to Eich's.  Their reward?  Well, among other things, Deutsches Brewery had their Keg Wagon there with many beers on tap.  The tease was, they were gonna start $1 beers at 8pm which is the time we planned to head out for the ride.  I will say the gravitational pull to stay at Eich's or just do a lap around the block and go back in for $1 beers was strong.  We resisted though as we had commitments...

We did a lap through West Sand and the new development.  I admit I took a wrong turn, but got us all back on track.  The fog made reading signs challenging...or at least that is my story.

We ended our ride at Connies and Shannon was all ready to take care of us.  A few bucks in the jukebox and the party was on.  There was some great hats.  We did not do awards though, as we are saving up for next month's Birthday Full Moon Fiasco...stay tuned for dets.  You will not wanna miss it.

Full Moon Fiasco XXV

Happy 2014, here's to entering our 3rd year here at FBC Sandpoint...

When: Thur, Jan 16th @ 7pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Hat Party

In case you didn't know, January is National Hat Month and more specifically, January 15th is National Hat Day.  Who knew.  Actually, to be clear it isn't actually a "National Holiday" as that would take an act of Congress and I guess they are too busy working out dets on Obamacare.

Now it has been awhile since I have giving you some food for thought, so here are a few hat facts:

  • Hats can keep your head warm (most of your body's heat is lost through your head)
  • Hats can keep the sun out of your eyes
  • Hats (like helmets) can keep your brain safe
  • Hats can advertise your favorite such and such (like a walking billboard)
  • Hats can make a statement about you
  • Hats can cover challenges you may have in your natural head coverings (I think you know what I mean)

There you go.  You learned something to share with your friends.  We will ride and wear hats.

Then, brace yourself, for dets about the BIG Birthday Bash Full Moon Fiasco in February...
