This weekend was the British Bike BurnUp in Expo Park. As usual there was a large turnout of scooterist who gazed at the vintage metal! Soon after the things cooled down and motorcycles dispersed, we took a tour through the historic Fair Park fairgrounds which was pretty amazing since Fair Park was the location of the 1936 World's Fair and remains unaltered to this day. It also is the worlds largest collection of Art Deco buildings and was amazing to see it without the crowds of people gulping down fried pizzas and Twinkies.
After a great group ride we and ended up at the Londoner in Uptown. Good times, good beer, great food made this a instant favorite of mine! I really like this location, and apparently they like us too with happy hour prices for all people showing up on scooters. They also have reserved parking out front just for us! The inside is styled like you would imagine an old London pub, with a bit of Hard Rock Cafe thrown in. Pool tables, darts and yes, a free juke box filled with "Brit pop, 80's favorites and some 70's glam rock".
We're definitely going back soon for some fish and chips and to enjoy the UK without leaving our neighborhood!
