We went to the art museum Friday night, to see the new George Caleb Bingham show there, which is free on Friday. More on that later. The pictured flower is from another show there, a special this weekend only flower arranging show at the Slammer, Art in Bloom. Afterwards we went to the Olympia for gyros and saganaki flaming cheese, OPAH!

On Saturday morning we started another one of our epic de-cluttering adventures, what other people do as a lifestyle choice we do as slash and burn urban renewal. We are having our living room and dining room re-plastered. So everything in those rooms must go. Today was our first crack at it. Yes, that pun was intended. It got up into the high sixties today, I pumped up the tires and we went biking for the first time in I cannot remember. It was great!

Tonight is all about Trailnet’s annual chili party, Bikes, Beans and Brews. This year’s event was held at a new venue, at T-Rex, downtown on Washington. It is an embryonic business incubator that has a fifth floor, which served as are party’s environment. The most notorious business in this incubator is Invisible Girlfriend / Boyfriend. This tech startup offers a service that allows the subscriber to have a fake online relationship. It made quite the news splash earlier this year, “Ma, I have a girlfriend now, now get off my back.” I was unaware until tonight that this business was based here in Saint Louis.

We took MetroLink to the party. We hooked-up with some other party goers on the way downtown and made sure to leave the party with them too. We made quite the ‘biker gang’, but I don’t think that any of this behavior would have been necessary before Ferguson.
