If you haven't been keeping tabs on who's riding, who's strategizing and who's winning, you can catch up with The Fredcast's "The Daily Tour Updates". So, tune in and listen up because... there will be a quiz at the tweetup! Yes, there will be prizes for those with the right answers.

Here's an update from the kind folks at Bottle Rock - The food items in the Lounge will be limited to the following:
  • Short Rib Sliders
  • Mini Grilled Cheese
  • Tuna Tartare Crostini
  • Olives & Almonds

Please make sure to order from the servers in order to get happy hour prices till 8pm.

Also, please NOTE the entrance to Bottle Rock is on 11th Street even though the address is Flower.

That's it for now - be there or be square!
