Clearly, It's Time to Dust Off Your Parka and Vespa. Or, Leather Jacket and Norton.
Good Friend of Unfair Park Mark Roberts sent word last night: The full schedule for this weekend's Rockers vs. Mods shindig is up and running -- from the Belmont Hotel to Trees to the Dubliner, with myriad rest stops in between. And, yes, our Danny Hurley will be riding shotgun yet again, so do your best to look your best.
And ... ooooo, they're raffling off a 1960 Vespa VBA at Trees Saturday night. Which reminds me of the time my cousin Greg and his buddies, clad in parkas and Union Jacks, used to scooter 'round Irving in the early '80s chanting, "We are the mods, we are the mods, we are, we are, we are the mods." Just like Quadrophenia, but in Irving.
