11 a.m.
Honey Court Seafood Restaurant, 516 Maynard Ave. S. (http://honeycourt.cwok.com)
I still only have a table for 20 right now. Send an RSVP comment to this thread and I can boost it up to 40 or more.

12:30 p.m. Joe's Bar & Grill at 500 S King St. for a quick one. I might make up some lies about its history just for fun.

Then a quick ride to our next stop
1:30-2 p.m. The Siren Tavern (3403 4th Ave S.), which has an awesome neon sign, lots of room and affordable prices.

2:30-3 p.m. leave for a ride through Georgetown, up Lake Washington Blvd (we'll probably stop at the I-90 overlook to watch the traffic roar by) and through the Arb and down Frat Row.

4 p.m. Cafe Racer, 5828 Roosevelt Way NE. This might be a good time to grab some food before we head out one more time to ...

5:30 or 6 p.m. Jade Restaurant & Lounge 8904 Aurora Ave N. Have a beer, play some pool, watch hookers walk by, live it up.

After that you can go home and wash off your shame before you head to the Nine Pound Hammer for our Sugar Bear appreciation party with DJs, a raffle, a silent auction, and probably some craziness.

And of course, all bikes are welcome. We're just looking to have a good time out there.

Kristin Donovan made a map. Hopefully you guys can see it.

Hey Kids, the days are getting shorter, the wind's a little crisper and there's a hint of smoke in the air. That can only mean one thing -- OktoBearScoot. This year the ride will feature an homage to those drinking establishments that have yet to be coopted by Yuppies and Tech Bros -- yet. Yes, we're talking dive bars. It'll also be a chance for us to raise some money for, and show some appreciation to, Richard Newland aka Sugar Bear, the most stalwart of scooter guys, who's had some medical issues lately. So show your appreciation for the guy who picked you up on the side of the road and took your drunk ass home.
On Saturday, we'll meet in Chinatown for breakfast before starting our tour at the famous Joe's. Then it's off to sample what Seattle used to be. We'll finish the night at Nine Pound Hammer with a DJ night featuring some of our scene's premier spinsmiths -- I might have just made that word up. There you'll have a chance to donate to the Sugar Fund and buy some T-shirts and patches. NOTE: This a repeat because I failed to make it public previously. D'oh.
