Scootergate 4 by Spoffy
I recently became the father of a 1979 Vespa P200E, a toy I’ve had my eye on for a long time now. But to some it’s more than a toy and a mode of transportation, it’s a way of life. These scooter people make their way across the country for rallies all year long, and in June they’re coming to DC for Scootergate 4.
The festivities kick off Friday evening at the Pug which includes registration and basically a “Hey! Good to see you, mutherf#*@$r!” type of gathering, complete with a DJ, Stupid Human Tricks, and a late night ride. Assuming you survive that night, Saturday brings you breakfast, rally rides, Scooter Jackassery awards, dinner, and a concert at the Rock and Roll Hotel. Still alive? Then ride to brunch on Sunday at Airborne’s and say your tearful goodbyes until next year. For a full itinerary that is subject to change, click here.
So if you’re a scootering fool, make your way to H street in June for what is sure to be an amazing time. If my scooter doesn’t end up stolen before then (and if I don’t inflict any fatal scooter related injuries upon myself), you know where to find me.
