I wasn't really planning on doing a second ride this weekend but it was just too nice outside to pass up and I know I will be doing a road trip on one of the November weekends so it seemed like a good chance to get ahead.
Uptown is a long running local chain, and they have two locations in my greater neighborhood including one in my theme zone. The location used to be a Skippers and for some reason I can just never settle in here, the coffee is very good the pastry selections is good but there is just no there -there. The fact that its on one corner of a 5 way intersection might have something to do with it.
|Still a bit Skipperish|
I had a very nice Irish Cream Latte with a blueberry muffin and it was very good, I even had a nice view of my bike.
There is some nice chalk art and photos paying homage to the 1930s era West Seattle. I sure wish we still had street cars, the line used to run right in front of where my apartment now stands.
|Chalk art -would love a Street car today|

Out and About
Since I was in the area I visited my favorite purveyor of hop based beverages, The Beer Junction, and got myself a Silver Moon Brewing (Bend Or) HOPopotamus IPA.
I also spotted some cool bikes, a nice Centurion Elite GT that had been converted to a city bike with north road bars.
A very cool Minty Green mixte from a brand I am not familiar with Bobbin.
Which was locked up with a Velo Orange Rando - a model that is a year or two older than the one I had. I admit a bit of envy that A) that person still had their nice VO Rando and B) they were hanging with a lady with a cool mixte. Maybe someday.
Until next time; Ride. Smile. Caffeinate. Repeat.
