Apparently without even asking me – this week was scheduled as Bike Week. Bikes being in this case the motorized kind. As in hundreds and hundreds of them all over the city and filling up all the hotels and motels. Given the obvious size and expense of many of the bikes it should not have suprised me to see them in the Hilton, Fairmont and Marriott parking lots as well as Sleep Inn, Comfort Inn and La Quinta (for the dog lovers). I noticed them on the road, but the impact became apparent when Noah and I attempted to find breakfast. We lucked out at the Original Pancake House where they even made traditional Dutch baked pancakes. A large group of bikers was leaving just as we arrived so we were seated. By the time we were heading out the line was out the door.
The day was simply spent running errands. College guy is an easy keeper – shoes and a couple of shirts and he is a happy camper. We had late lunch, early dinner at PF Changs and I dropped him off.
