The sun was seriously out this Sunday, and the queer scooter group was getting together for a ride. My scooter is just not appropriate for any sort of rally riding, but they are OK with sharing the ride with a motorcycle, and I joined in. The starbucks (yes, it’s seattle, they make for universal neighborhood landmarks) was overflowing with bicycle riders, as I waited for the group. In the end, we had six people, scattered across 4 bikes, and headed out for a trip out to Alki. It was really nice, not being the underpowered-bike-holding-everyone-up, especially when we got onto the west seattle bridge where, despite a 35 mph speed limit, most people were doing 60 past us.
We drove all the way out, and after a short pause on the beach, along half the backside of Alki, before splitting up, with 5 of us going back down the beach to have lunch at Cactus. Man, I do love the salsa at that place. All the food was tasty.
After lunch, I went home, with the intent of getting out on the water while the sun was so nice. Ended up spending an hour with a not-worth-it guy instead, but oh well.
For dinner, headed down to the Can Can for the yearly Easter event which is The Bunny Bounce. As it is a free first-come-first-served event, there were no set table-spaces, and I grabbed a seat at an empty table in the back, but quickly ended up with an overflowing table of joiners. Turns out they are all drag performers, there to support one of their friend’s in the cast, so got to hear lots of catty gossip all night long, a sort of secondary, private-at-my-table show. They were all very polite and occasionally sociable, but I went home alone, so it wasn’t THAT gay of a day. The Bunny Bounce show was fun. I think only one of the performers was in drag, or else they are on hormones. They all were fun. And the poutine is always worth getting at the Can Can.
