Friday night, Husband and I went to see David Byrne talk about one of our favorite things - Bicycles.
The event was held at the Aratani Theater
in Little Tokyo
. It was AMAZING to see so many people who were cyclists or intersted in urban commuting all in one place. So many enthusiastic folks packed into a theater.
Clipped from the ALOUD site
