Shiver me timbers, it's a pirate themed hootenanny at Frankie's this month!
As usual, bring food and drink and adventure tales starting with "well, Jim said he knew this shortcut...". If you want to come dressed as a pirate (eye patches! Hats! Stripes and capris!), or bring Caribbean themed food/drink, well ahoy there me maties!
Kitchen is tiny so minimal prep only (oven available for pizza-cooking) and ideally finger foods not requiring utensils or plates... no dishwasher. Bringing your own drinking vessels is also encouraged ;-)
Whole Foods has cold beer and wine and some mixers, but no hard liquor. Hint: rum goes rather well with ginger beer or grapefruit soda, and your host will be providing decent rum to all who donate to her Climate Ride fundraising campaign (need $800 by Thursday...).
Bike parking: unfortunately there's nowhere secure for bikes to be locked up. There is a secured parking spot but last week several bikes were stolen from the garage. There aren't many handy posts or signs to lock to either, so I recommend locking bikes up super securely outside Whole Foods (ample bike parking, see map).
Directions: don't go up the main steps to 180 Montecito. Just up the hill of the main steps, hidden behind a tree, you will see windows with Adventure Cycling magazines in them and sounds of bike nerd merriment spilling out! A not-so-secret staircase behind the big tree will lead you to the hidden treasure. Yo ho ho.
PS and if you haven't already, please think about supporting Frankie on her Climate Ride or she'll make ye walk the plank! Avast, ye landlubbers.
