so i got into chicago late friday nite and seen the whole gang outside what they refer to as "the Space", another collaborative garage like the shed (R.I.P.) but the place is alive! at least on a friday nite it is.... Brian was finishing up the last bits on the minnow and Eugene (Eugenius or Mean Gene) was trying to figure out what was up with his charging system, and the others were standing around drinking. We spent most of the weekend there and that's just fine with me. Saturday nite we got a bit mixed up on Lake shore drive, but like me and Bunny always say, "it always works out when you're on a motorcycle." We all ended up at the Beat Kitchen to see Uncle Remus play with his band Sweet Cobra. The rest of the weekend was spent riding around, drinking, and visiting good people. Thanks everyone for the hospitality and the good times. Rob, thanks for the late nite Thin Lizzy record party- next time it's the StonesGennaro, it was good to see you again and i'm sorry i will miss your shindig this sunday. Blake, Brian, Mitch, Johnny Ratchet, Danny, Sean... it was a blast as always- thanks for showing me around and the good times in general. We gotta ride together more often! Eugene, it was nice to meet you and i'm glad you got the sporty up and running. all the rest, thanks for everything. hope to see you guys again soon. Next time get ready- I'm bringing the Cabbage!
