[photos] Tour de Fat

Yesterday I met rosefox and several of her friends for a spin down to the Tour de Fat to hang out with the hard core bicycle crowd and see Circus Contraption.

Sadly, the circus started just as I had to leave for Seattle, but we still had a very cool time noshing at the Saturday Market, then checking out the rad bikes and more-rad people at the festival.

I didn't catch the name of the first band that was on, but rosefox reminds me that first band was The Yard Dogs Road Show. They were something else — very, very good.

Art, entertainment and people
