Bike to “Last Thursday” on Alberta

Juli at 8+ months!My ladies and I cruised over to NE Alberta Street last night to check out the monthy “Last Thursday” street fair and art walk. First, let me just say how proud I am of Juli (my lady). She could give birth any day now and she was still pedaling around the ‘hood (see photo!).

Alberta was really hopping full of great music, beautiful art, interesting characters, and…well, it’s really hard to capture in words the amazing energy of the place.

The infamous Clownhouse was really busy, they always draw a large (and incredulous) crowd. When we were there the mud wrestling pit was full, a bunch of well-costumed “clowns” were milling about and everyone was having some good old-fashioned vaudeville fun.

I also ran into Carye Bye of Pretty Dress Ride, Bunny on a Bike and Red Bat Press fame. I forgot to pick up a few of her great woodcut notecards. She’s got a ton of fun designs to choose from.
