PBW 2010: Change is Good?
My best reaction is to this news today is mixed. On one hand, the change in three months will give me more time to plan the next installment of Philly Beer Run. But, more often than not, runners and bikers prefer the temps in the 40s and 50s rather than 70s and 80s (we'll even be happy in the 30s). So how this plays into the type of running event that I put together remains to be seen. As far as bar hopping and city traversing in June of 2010? Eh, I suppose we can look at it as a better option than August, right?! Do the bar owners really enjoy the Erin-Expressers more than the Philly Beer Geekerie? Are they that much more profitable? Do you know, do you care? Or are you all ready already for PBW 2010 to begin? All I know is that there's sure to be a Nick Johnson-sponsored party during the Bike Race as it goes through Manayunk/Roxborough on June 6th, 2010 during Philly Beer Week. That is, as long as it doesn't get cancelled as is a possibility for this year's. This is one of the City's most important and captivating annual sporting events and, like the Penn Relays and Dad Vail Regatta, should be protected as a city treasure. Did I go off course here?
