Oh, hey. I’m still alive and back with a tip to get awesome looking selfies! Drop your phone on the ground and then try to repair it with tape. The tape gives your photos a nice soft blur. No need for retouching!
Paying double figures for a cocktail is like paying $34 for an entree: It ain’t for everyone, but that doesn’t mean it’s a rip-off. If you’re willing to forget the retail price of a pound of chicken and just enjoy the excellence of some weird-ass poulet énigmatique with 5 ounces of bird surrounded by three kinds of mushroom, purple carrots, and a grain you’ve never heard of but which you strongly suspect is grits, then there’s no reason not to finish the meal off with a Byrrh-based cocktail.
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — Cyclists who chain their bikes to trees, lights, signs and meters along downtown Charleston’s King Street will have to find somewhere else to park next month.
Charleston police said Wednesday that officers would begin enforcing an ordinance that prohibits parking bicycles in places that block the flow of foot traffic along King Street between Spring and Calhoun streets.
Bikes found in violation of the ordinance will be removed and taken to the Charleston Police Department and the owner will be fined a $45 storage fee to get the bike returned.
Police said the city installed over 100 bike parking spaces along the same section of King Street, making parking easier.
(I AM NOT COOL WITH THIS, BTW.)
I ACCIDENTALLY broke this law last week.
I’m a sucker for antlers and mystical woodland nymphs—add a bike and I’ll buy whatever you are selling. Bravo to the team at Charleston Shop Curator and Jonathan Balliet for these images.
I’ve learned that biking in a pencil skirt requires shorts. Your skirt will restrict your movement unless bunched around your waist. This creates some rather goofy looking outfits; especially while in heels and athletic shorts.
Today, however, I learned that pencil skirts are dubious for another reason. Their hem will clip under your seat and as you dismount, you will be connected to your saddle via a very tight grip and you will falter the landing, all while the nose of your Brooks tries to muzzle its way into your posterior.
And then your neighbors will stare because the girl in the weird outfit is stuck to her bike. Dammit, I look good in pencil skirts too. Alas, they will only see the light of day when I can walk or take a vehicle to my location.
Normally, I would pooh-pooh a travel company, but after reading about BGSK’s trip to France, I’m ordering a Backroads catalog.
This Buca Boot is so good. I’ve always wanted a bike basket that locks, and this one is stylish as well! It’s a bit pricey (Donation of $195) but that could be worth not having to haul your groceries into every stop along your errand running tour.
I’ve just invested in a wooden crate for the Betty, however, so I’ll stick with that for now. Also, I tend to just leave things in the basket and no one has bothered them. One time, my busted umbrella was stolen, but I lose those things all the time.
Sweet! Spinlister made its way to Charleston. I don’t know if the Betty will ever get listed, but it’s good to know I have somewhere to turn when I have guests in town.
I like my current lock just fine, but the Foldylock is really tempting with its compact shape. Take a look at their Kickstarter page.
