Announcing our Second Ever Moon Tower Ride!
The first one offered free coffee and had about 80 people at the start. This time there's free FRS and free beer at the end. So we'll see what that does.
For those of you who aren't familiar with Austin's Moon Towers, which are 120-year-old municipal arc lamps, here's a great article from Low-tech Magazine on their use and origins.
My first deep encounter with Austin's towers was two and half years ago, when I wrote about them for Austinist.com.
We'll meet at 8pm this Friday the 18th, under the Moon Tower in Zilker Park (yes, Austin's perennial 'Christmas Tree'). We'll hit the road at quarter past, cruising under each tower as they glare through the night. Then back to the cafe for beer, coffee, and good times.
