Pub Crawl, this time on bikes, and sad Abbey news

This Saturday, I enjoyed the Beer Snob Bicycle Pub Crawl organized by Miami Bike Scene, which involved riding about town grabbing a brewski here and another there. I started at home, with a headache, struggling at 3:30p.m. to get out the door. After entering the daylight, I rode with Nico (above) and Ricky across the Venetian Causeway to Zeke's on Lincoln. There there were tons of bike riders all having a genuinely nice time, sipping beer and shooting the poo. After Zeke's we all headed to The Abbey before going back across the bridge to the the DRB where I ended my bike day while everyone else went on to Titanic. I had a wonderful time and I really hope that the next one comes soon! Thanks for organizing, guys.

On a crap note, it was at The Abbey that a terrible rumor I heard was confirmed. The Abbey is closing. Cry bitches or start a petition or something! The people who bought the building that houses the bar are shutting them down. The Abbey is one of the most non-beachy, pleasant places in Miami. It has character and a nice selection of beer. It's very much worth saving, so think creatively! I encouraged the owner to get some press, so if you write something pass the sad word on and see if it changes anything.

You have ruined my day. Thanks, EAT.

Sorry, my love! I still think there's hope, but I'm an endless well of unmet expectations.

Now I have to look up the land records, and start a mail campaign to have people write letters to the owners of the Building, to let the Abbey stay.

Imagine if you saved The Abbey and you were then able to drink for free forever there. Would it be worth all the hard work?

They're the two ultimate owners of the building, which is owned through at least FOUR holding companies...
