Day 37 Past with a New Twist-Bicycle Cafe

Transform something old into a new creation
The North Park Boat House has been recently transformed into a bicycle themed bar/restaurant. Don’t worry, this  blog is not going to turn into a Trip Advisor review of places to eat. However this was another nostalgic moment because I remember being at the park boat house with my son to rent paddle boats and now it’s a “hot spot.”  As a teen, this part of the park was also reserved  for carousing  in cars trying to meet boys. Thus, this is a old place with a new twist.

The cafĂ© had bike stuff everywhere. It was not museum quality like the stuff at the Bicycle Museum Day 4  but this place  could have been a museum spin off.  All the menu items were  named with a bicycle theme.  I just had to have the “Bicycle Heaven” burger.
The food was great  and it seemed like a “happening “ place.  Maybe a little too “happening” because the wait was 60 minutes at 7pm but the great part was that we  walked around the lake instead of just waiting. You can get exercise and eat food in close proximity.  

It was another  picture perfect night and a great time to relax and enjoy a friend's company. The deck over looked the lake and it was a great way to remember something old  transformed into something new but this time much better.

Spiritual  Reflection
But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander and dirty language. Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old evil nature and all its wicked deeds. In its place you have clothed yourselves with a brand-new nature that is continually being renewed as you learn more and more about Christ, who created this new nature within you. (Colossians 3:8-10)
We strive for our conduct to match our  faith. We also strive to act in truth so that we do not destroy trust and unity.
