I’m off to San Francisco for a BIKERGO ride, a poetry reading for “The Book of Practical Pussies” & DECOMPRESSION SF!

October 9, 2009

BikergoThis weekend, I get to go on a BIKERGO ride with inventor Steven Ascher! He saw my post about how much fun I had riding the BIKERGO at Burning Man, he loved my enthusiasm and he invited me to go for a ride sometime! Read my post about the Bikergo, the best bike at Burning Man!

Just so happens that I was looking for an excuse to go to the Bay Area this weekend to attend SF Decompression on Sunday and to visit with NYC experimental poet Lee Ann Brown who’s in SF with others to read from her latest anthology The Book of Practical Pussies.

Plus I’ve been invited to a shindig thrown by Murphy-Goode’s Hardy Wallace.

What a weekend! Poetry, cycling, art, wine! Who knows what adventures the weekend may bring! I know I am up for it all! Bring it on, world! I’m ready and willing!
