Cruisin’ Broadway

July 27th, 2016

Thursday, August 4, 5-9pm

On and near Broadway, between the tracks

Do not miss. Broadway pleasantly crowded. Last month we saw a 1959 Citroen 2CV -- looked like a child had built it with an erector set. Had a BMW motorcycle engine with five times the original motor’s power, and that mother could peel out and fishtail down Broadway. What a ride. I’m bad, I’m bad, you know it.
