…a coupla other events in Philly:

The first annual Fishtown River City Festival at Penn Treaty Park this Saturday Sept. 13 with seven local bands with Oud Blues headlining. Supposedly the stage will be overlooking the Delaware River, kinda like a mini Penn’s Landing but with less trash.

The second annual Bike Philly, modeled after the 40 year-old Bike New York Five Borough ride, takes place Sunday the 14th. They’re expecting 5,000 bicyclists to attend and ride along with Mayor Nutter through car-free city streets starting at 7:45. If you happen to be up that damn early on a Sunday you can bet the streets are going to be car-free ANY Sunday!

Don’t forget to mark your calendar for this year’s Trexlertown bike swap– October 11. I’m going to be the first one through the gate since Daddy’s looking for a sweet deal on a new Italian steel frame. It’s time put the old girl to rest.
