Total-ly awesome.  On Thursday, August 24th at 7pm, three days after our eyes turn to mush, let’s meet at Cold Fire Brewing and shape around the cat’s fir.  Solar Eclipse Cat only comes around every 99 year. You don’t want to miss this! You may even want the t-shirt. :P

September 29th – 1860 Electoral Map (Abstract)

Before “Fore score and seven years ago…” it was Lincoln v. Breckinridge v. Douglas v. Bell…I think we all remember how the 1860 presidential race panned out, Oregon’s first participation in the Electoral College. In the spirit of the season, let’s right this old electoral college map. We’ll meet outside of the Red Barn Grocery in the Whitaker at 6:30pm this Thursday and ride out to Claim 52 Brewing (1030 Tyinn St, Eugene) in West Eugene. We’ll complete the shape on the way back.
