Even though it wasn't yet October, down at The Brickstore Pub this Saturday they were celebrating Octoberfest. Here and there were people in various renditions of lederhosen or whatever struck them as remotely alpine. The servers were running crazy that day, but something tells me this young tatted miss was pulling in some good tips.
Notice the art on the wall at her right. This was a display of skateboard art in anticipation of an auction.
Everyone pays admission. The local skate company hauls out their ramps and runs contests. The prizes and give-aways aren't as plentiful as they have been in the past, but the event is more popular than ever.
Then there is the real money maker--the auction. Local artists, or anyone who wants to, can paint (or sculpt) a board. The proceeds all go to support BTFC.
|I like the bottom one here. It is stencil art, a favorite of mine.|
|The "cycloctipi" was a real favorite this year.|
Here are some of the interesting people hanging around in the rain.
|It takes a certain amount of confidence for a guy to wear a pink belt, don't you think?|
|Something about this girl reminded me of myself back in the day. I think that's how a lot of the parents feel at this event.|
