Look…temps in the upper 30’s & lower 40’s in February has me thinking about riding. Unfortunately, that heavy coating of salt & sand on the roads has me thinking it’s best to wait for just a bit longer before busting out the Harley.
Oh well….riding season will be here soon enough.
Wife’s outta town this weekend, so I’ll be looking for something to do on Friday & Saturday night, and here’s a few places you’ll probably find me:
FRIDAY – WINTER ROOTS FESTIVAL “ICE BREAKER” EVENT @ THE MAIN – AN EVENT SPACE
Doors open at 6pm for this bad boy at the Main – An Event Space in downtown La Crosse. It’s free to get in with your EARLY ENTRY tickets for the La Crosse Winter Roots Festival, or you can pay five bucks at the door!
There’s going to be live tunes from Nobody’s Dope, and the La Crosse Distilling Company will be unleashing a few special variations of their Barbegazi Black Lager, including a Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter version, and an Orange Pistachio version. Hooray for beer!
Plus, the Hunger Task Force will be on-site to collect nonperishable food items. So, grab a bag full of canned foods, peanut butter, noodles, etc., and come down to the Main and attend the La Crosse Winter Roots Festival pre-party with me!
