Beer, bikes, and pancake juggling

click to enlargeWe finally got some wonderful rain, although not enough to battle the drought. Also the temperature is cooling down - today only in the 70s! Wearin' sleeves!! According to the weather people it will clear up for the weekend and be in the 80s. As WaMu used to say (and I guess they will not be using this slogan anymore), "Whoo Hoo!" Tour de Fat rolls through town [Austin schedule]. It's a touring event put on by New Belgium Brewing Company (the name being a nod to their Fat Tire beer). Basically just bring your bike if you've got one, wear a costume if you want to, try and ride the really weird bikes, listen to music, bring the kids, bring your pets, drink good beer, get some sun.

The Squirm Burpee Circus was there last year and will be there again. No animals, of course (I would never promote an animal circus). Check it out in the video below:
