P1190193

Finnigan’s Wake just posted this on Facebook. I couldn’t have said it any better. I’m not a car person particularly, but there is plenty of artistic inspiration here in all the shapes and colors and trimmings of these vintage vehicles. Saturday on Trade St. is the 13th Annual Heavy Rebel Weekender car and bike show. It runs from 10AM-5PM. If you’ve come before you remember how fun it is. If you’re a newbie get ready to have your mind AND eyes blown. Last year had over 500 entries. If it was built in 1968 or before you’ll see it here. Continue reading

New Year’s Eve Eve Eve

 December 21st came and went, the world didn’t end, and there are no more shopping days till Xmas 2012.  And just a few more days till 2012’s last gasp. Once upon a time, “what-are-you-doing-New-Year’s” demanded a definitive answer.  But it’s not so important anymore. No plans are necessary; we’ll find out when we get there.
