Chicago’s Hard Mod Weekender kicks off tonight (well, actually last night with the Circuits reunion at the Globe, sorry for posting this so late!). Tonight’s the Stone Lightning Band and the Irving Parkas with DJs at Phyllis’, tomorrow is a Moto Show and Jumble sale at the new Bottom Lounge (can’t wait to check that […]
This Is What Happens When U Drink and Drive. Let’s buy a case of Haywards 5000 and a Bajaj Chetak and try it out!
Here’s Ben with the details of the group ride in Chicago tomorrow (Saturday 4/5/2008):
Tonight’s the debut of a new episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network featuring The Galewood Cookshack. If you read 2sb, you know all about our little pocket of Chicago called Galewood, and you know Grace Delcano, a scooterist, friend, and neighbor who honed her BBQ recipe at several years worth of […]
Oh dear lord make it stop.
If Ipone Strawberry-scented 2-stroke oil is tempting, but you just don’t like strawberry, check these out. Frightening and awesome, but still, sadly, no bacon-scent.
If you know 2sb, and you know Galewood, you already know and love Grace Delcano, our scooterist friend/neighbor famous for her home-smoked BBQ pulled pork. And you probably know that her roving BBQ-mobile, the Galewood Cookshack, is gaining notoriety in Chicagoland by serving up fantastic pulled-pork sandwiches (and more recently, nachos) at local farmers’ markets […]
Hey, I think I’d post about Tandoori Sizzler Doritos even if there wasn’t a sweet junky 80s-vintage Asian-Vepsa sidehack in the TV commercial. (That’s Scootin’ Old Skool’s second most popular post.) 2sb readers of Canadia [that’s not a typo -ed], you have a mission. First bag of Tandoori Sizzlers I get in the mail nets […]
The folks over at Gizmodo reported on some ‘scientists’ in the UK thatÂ have come up with an equation for the perfect bacon sandwich. Further research revealed that my lab rat brethren at Leeds University have defined what is the perfect “Bacon Butty”. I’ve been eating bacon sandwiches with pleasure for the last thirty plus years, […]
Los Corazones Negros have organized a ride to the Chicago South Side Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday (March 11, 2007): Ride meets at 10AM, Atomix (1957 W. Chicago Ave (312) 666- 2649) and at 10:30/45 leave for the parade. Easy ride 20ish miles, small frames welcome. Weather looks to be nice. Tenative route […]
E*rock tells us the Bohemian Brewery in Salt Lake City, UT is decorated with several vintage scooters. Are any of our SLC friends/Scoot.net people involved in that?
For the last few years, the Chrome Czars have organized the best hot-rod show around, the Hunnert Car Pileup. Each year it’s roughly doubled in size, and this Saturday, it will likely double again. Scooters are welcome, though only vintage scooters can enter the show area (at the discretion of the judges). The local scooter […]
The celebrity news just keeps coming today. British chef and well-known scooterist Jamie Oliver crushes a Vespa in a fat suit in commercials for his new TV show. As an obese scooterist, I am not amused.
Patrick has organized a ride for this Saturday (July 1, 2006): Kick off the weekend right with a a nice, long, fast ride (scooters capable of 50+mph only please). Meet at Beans and Bagels on Montrose/Ravenswood at 1pm. We’ll take Route 14 to 59 to 12. Our first stop will be in Defiler SC country, […]
Another (the last, or is it?) Galewood has come and gone, but our high cholesterol levels live on. Congrats to Bacon Cookoff winners Mark (3rd), Kristina (2nd), and Quentin (1st, first two-time winner). No one got hurt on the three-wheeler OR the bouncy castle. We’re gonna call John Hodge the winner of the Chicco showdown […]
