Had a chat to the guy at the Wheaty last night about a possible pub “sponsorship” by them for our regualr rides. Things along the lines of making sure we go there every Tuesday night (which is what we do anyway), ending alley cats there, maybe trying to organise roller races, video screenings, etc. We’ll get cheap(er) beer and some other perks from them.
but can yo take yo bike in? or can you lock it up in sight of beer garden or something?
also, is thebarton becoming adelaide’s fitzroy yet? i really think adelaide needs an arty/grungy/hipster suburb, and always thought thebarton would be perfect -> mainly cos it’s the only hipster-price range friendly suburb fringeing the city. and sorta has that dirty industrial thing goin on. quick jolan, start up a organic fair trade produce cafe slash art gallery hybrid. they will come.
I like a good surly waiter/ress. I try to support them as often as I can, I really appreciate the fact that they are offering something different to most other places in Adelaide - not fussed about appealing to a particular demographic, just providing a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy some company. Also, it is pretty hilarious that they all hit the chronic bionic at about 10pm most evenings.
yeh ok so get this happening already and make spoke cards. im only gonna be in adelaide next week so id like to acquire one while there. then i can ride around with it here in melbourne and get the wheaty sweet interstate exposure .
only a matter of time before its an international icon :mrgreen:
