Pay n' Take and shared beer with Martin and Jeff for an hour or so . . .
This past Friday being the night of the First Friday Art Walk, downtown Flagstaff was a hustle and bustle with activity and not many parking spaces were to be had. As you and I already know though, parking spaces aren't much of a worry when you ride a bike.
and Bob was able to find a place to lock up just a few steps from the bar, even with all the other bikes on the sidewalk . . .
and this one hanging out on a fence.
After leaving Pay n' Take, we tooled around downtown for a while and took in some street music and general urban ambiance.
Brix and enjoy a wine and cheese plate. We've been to Brix a couple of times, including for our anniverary this past April. The food is great, the service impecible and the interior of the restaurant is stylish and charming at the same time. Unhappily, once again I have failed to capture this on camera due to the excitement created when the cheese arrived at the table. I didn't even think about even taking a picture of the cheese plate until after I had already destroyed the artistic presentation. Damn! It really was delicious, too. I'll try to do better next time in the photog department but remember, this is a bike blog, not a foodie blog. So in keeping with bikes and the overall parking theme of this post, I did take pics of the exterior bike parking area!
Very nice. A bike rack in a well lit area, close to entrance rather than hidden in the shadows. One could probably fit more bikes at the bike rack than one could cars in the parking lot. Thank you Brix! How nice it is to be able to enjoy a date with my husband without it being marred by the unpleasantness of the lack of parking spaces or an ugly altercation over who saw said parking space first. Parking is never a crisis on a bike.
