Scootergate Starts Now

Scootergate 4 by spoffy

This is it scooter fans, the weekend we’ve been waiting for.  Scootergate 4 has finally arrived!  The festivities kick off at 5pm at The Pug where you can register ($25 cash) if you haven’t done so already online.  What do you get with your registration?  A whole slew of things including a ticket to the Rock and Roll Hotel show Saturday night, a rally bag, a rally patch, a t-shirt, a bunch of coupons, a raffle ticket, and food.  Hell, I’d pay $25 for the t-shirt alone!  Today’s Seattle-like weather is supposed to subside as the day goes on so hopefully it will be prime weather for the late night ride of DC movie hotspots.

If you can’t make it tonight (or if the rain in Spain continues to be a pain), registration continues Saturday morning for what will no doubt be a full day of activities.  Choose between a long ride around DC and Old Town Alexandria or a shorter ride to a local swimming pool where you can show off your awesome farmer’s tan.  Check out the swap meet and Scooter Jackassery at Modern Classics between 2 and 5.  At 8:30 until the wee hours of the dawn, head back to H street at the Rock and Roll Hotel for rally and raffle awards, The Black Hollies, The Breakups, and DJ Bobby Babylon.  Remember kids, don’t drink and scooter!

If you’re still alive on Sunday, meet up back at The Pug and ride to brunch at Airborne’s where you can say your sweet goodbyes until Scootergate 5.  Zooooooom!
