    Hip hop was pretty good but had low numbers when I was there, probably due to the threat of rain and the confusing location change.

    I didn't see anyone else in the group. At the last minute I had to switch vehicles so I left my bike at home. I guess I never go the word where and when to meet.

      Me and Shihab were there for almost a couple of hours. And I moved towards Rochester got talent venue afterwards. May be we came across each other but didn't introduce as a group.

      Open Streets is new to Rochester, but I guess they do them in the cities all the time. The instructor of our class has been to them up there and says they're tons of fun!
