Just a follow-up from last week’s post to remind you to place your bets this afternoon for the Great Bus Race 2008 because it’s on like Konkey Dong between me and The Bus Bench’s BusTard. I’ll be on the MTA’s No. 439 catching up on my reading of Mercedes Lambert’s “Dogtown” and he’ll be bribing the driver of Big Blue’s No. 10 to skip stops as we travel from our respective points of embarkation deep in the westside sometime shortly after the 5 o’clock hour then call crawl our separate ways across town (his route and mine) to see who gets to Clifton’s at 7th and Broadway first. With fingers crossed that we both get there before the place closes at 7:30 p.m., we will then retire inside for loser-buys dinner with perhaps whiskeys at Seven Grand afterward, or just we’ll pass around The Bus Bench Publisher Browne’s bottle of Everclear.
You can track my progress and follow all the ongoing hot mass-transit action as I post in-route tweets here on Twitter, along with the occasional phonecam pix to my photostream on Flickr (at least for as long as my mobile’s battery lasts).
