new belgium beer festival.

Over the weekend, we loaded up our bikes and rode to the annual "Tour de Fat" in Tempe (more about the festival here). Our group decided on a simple theme - hats - which ended up being perfect since the temperatures were unseasonably hot... like too hot. Alicia was the most creative one in the group with a lovely unicorn ensemble. 

The temperatures had all of us festival goers seeking any sliver of shade we could find, but we still had a good time. Post-festival we bike caravaned over to good 'ol Casey Moores where we managed to get lucky and snag a table in the shade and ended the day at the Coach House. 

(Eh, well, technically the Tings ended the night at Filberto's, but we agreed all the biking justified the loaded nachos... and a bean burrito. Don't judge.)
