This Saturday, July 17, 2010, the fifth annual Far West Fest will take place at Love Field in Point Reyes Station. It's a fantastic music, food, beer, crafts, art, beer, music...all day festival. The only one of its kind in Marin County. Music all day long from 11:00 - 7:30 pm. Outside on a baseball field! How can you top that! Anyone who reads this and is within driving distance needs to make the trek to Pt. Reyes on Saturday (you guys reading this and taking note?).
Why the plug for Far West Fest? Well besides benefiting my favorite radio station, KWMR, the baseball field, area pre-schools, being able to listen to live music all day and drink beer (have a designated driver), I'm going to be there with a Black Mountain Cycles booth. I'll have examples of my soon to be unleashed road and cross frames and I'll have some nice Black Mountain Cycles items for sale - pint glasses (which if you bring your own glass to the beer garden, you may get a price break on a pint), water bottles, coffee, t-shirts, and I'll show off some Salsa and Surly bikes.
So, sorry for having the shop closed, but do come down around the corner (follow the sound of the music) and spend some time enjoying the great music and atmosphere in Point Reyes Station. The weather is supposed to be stellar!
