but instead I’m at the shop getting things done in preparation for Mr. Prolly’s Vegas Vacation. Andy from Fyxo and Ben from Argonaut are in town, and I didn’t want them sitting at GSC while I was working, so they set off on a (off)road bike ride with some of LA’s finest.

Do you live/work/play Virgil Village? Come to this meeting and express your support for the proposed bike lanes on Virgil between Santa Monica and Melrose!

If you can not attend…please feel free to email gary.benjamin@lacity.org with any positive feedback or concerns(doubt there’ll be any concerns)! Hope everyone can make it out.
