My solo activity of the week, the Tweed Ride. Dress up like a Brit and ride from English pub to English pub on your bike. Brilliant! Started at the Globe at 1pm, then to a Polish bar where they gave out free polish sausage, then to the Handlebar by 4pm. This is where I had to peel off to clean for tonight’s party, after hosting 30 people last night. They’re going to a few more places until they end up in Lincoln Square for German Fest. About 30 in the group. Surprised how many people dressed up. Bonus of the day – actual Brits!! Including one who came up to me and said, “Are you Saya?” Turns out he saw my Pecha Kucha presentation. Fun outing, though I wasn’t as social as usual due to playing host last night. Friendly group, would do it again. Totally an activity one can feel comfortable doing solo.
