Dead Baby + .83 + Conference Bike = new land speed record.
Dunno why it’s taken me so long to write about the Dead Baby Downhill. Dead Baby was awesome. Truck load of people met at El Chupacabra and then raced down the hill to a warehouse space behind The Bit Saloon in Ballard where you stood in line for unlimited free beer served in official Dead Baby water bottles (bottles were $10 though) or $2 burgers/dogs, listened to live bands, watched fire eaters, jousting, and danced with a real live funk brass band. It was fucking epic.
Heres the photo gallery -I can’t believe I left my camera at home – so you get my camera phone pics and Monica’s camera which I stole for a few shots. go me.
Oh and the above pic? .83 absconded with the Conference Bike from Dutch Bike and rode it on the Dead Baby Downhill – almost certainly setting a new land speed record for the thing. Fucking excellent.
This bike was hella fun, but later that night we watched some guy swing the back end around and totally kneecap this guy with an arm load of beer and just demolish him. LOL. times.
Dude built this bike 15 years ago. You can really ride it. Super cool.
This bike was just insane. Monica is on the left holding beer in a cute dress.

I think this guy wants to kick my ass. Or fuck me. I don’t think I have much say in the matter.
$2 burgers – mmmm
Our awesome friends from .83 poured beer for 4 1/2 fucking hours. They were pissed when it was all said and done.

By the end of the night, most of us looked like this guy
Laura was a good sport.
Thanks Joby for inviting us to your party.
