St. Patrick's Day Ride

Hey gang. This months ride falls on St. Patty's day. I looked on-line to see what there is to do in the L.A. or Orange counties area on the day; and found out that the Farmer's Market, (Fairfax @ 3rd. L.A.) has a St. Patrick's day thing with a bagpiper roaming around, and one of the vendors selling authentic corned beef and cabbage. So I thought, let's go for it. We'll go a bit early, 10:00 A.M., because of the distance, and to avoid the late afternoon, early evening traffic in the area on our way out.
I'm going to check on the parking situation, being that four scooters can fit in one car stall. But they have a two hours free deal, with validation. If we all end up having to pull a ticket to get in, we only need to buy something, and get out in under two hours; sounds easy enough.
The route is long, (obviously) but not complex. I'll have maps on the day, but essentially this is it. PCH W to Alameda N to 3rd W. Coming back 3rd E, until it becomes one way the wrong way, then 4th E to Alameda S, PCH E back to the start.
Kick stands up, gassed up, and helmets on by 10:00, RAIN CANCELS
Hope you can make it, it should turn out to be one of the more memorable ones.

    Anyone in Los Al area want to meet at the same spot as last month to ride to the meet spot? Meet at the same place about 8:30-8:45.

    O.K. people, we have an up-date. An alert member, Lauren, informed me the that the L.A. marathon will be going on the day of our ride. Now this only impacts the route where we turn on third st. And actually means good news for the ride overall. Meaning, the mass of people in L.A. will be concentrated north of us. And the remaining, "would be" travelers to L.A. will perhaps stay out of town altogether. So the new route is, Alameda N, left on Vernon, Right on Vermont to 3rd. W. And again, I'll have maps on the day. And thank you Lauren for catching my grievous error.
