FlashDance 16 did NOT kill me, it made me…

So it’s a week after Labor Day & I’m finally recovered enough to write this post 🙂 (Ok so honestly I also had big work deadlines that kept me too busy to post, but the above sentence captures the aging-rockstar-weekend aspect I’m trying to convey here, so we’ll just dispense with the truth, OK?)

Anyway… Labor Day weekend was kinda ridiculous for me:

  • Friday: 4 hours of Trikeasuarus at Critical Mass.
    Usually, I only do 2 or 3 hours max… not Friday. We went on forever! We even biked up Arguello in the Presidio!
  • Saturday: Recovery (did I mention Arguello Hill?) & worked on my crazy deadlines
  • Sunday: RIDICULOUS:
    – 3 hours of Trikeasaurus at Sunday Streets (CRAZY FUN)*,
    – followed by a mini-FlashDance (kinda weak actually**)
    – followed by another 2 hours of Trikeasaurus
    – followed by a 2 hour nap
    – followed by a 2.5 hours of FLASHDANCE AWESOMNESS

Needless to say, I nearly killed myself over 4 days. And as a result I’m…. <hit it Kanye!>

Anyway, though the first mini-FD at Sunday Streets was, honestly weak**, the real FlashDance was AWESOME!!! Turnout was good even though many people were away for Labor Day & Burning Man, the vibe was fantabulous as usual & as always, that location, Ferry Plaza, was one of the finest! Big thanks to everyone who made it sooooo awesome! And if you want to see more video, or pics, or the playlist – click below to read on after the jump!)

  1. I was at the Sunday Streets version – my first exposure – and it was still awesome. I’m hooked.
