…our little brunch spot was right in the thick of the annual Fremont Solstice Parade/Celebration. Josh and Laura picked a great spot for the 4 of us to enjoy a Father’s Day brunch together and then on Saturday morning we saw on the news that the Solstice celebration was happening. This made getting there and especially parking a bit difficult but Josh dropped us off and went to find a parking spot by himself and jogged back to the restaurant.
As we ate people were flooding the street outside to get a glimpse of the parade.
The food was all very good and we enjoyed a nice leisurely time together. There was a special drink on the menu for this weekend.
It was listed on the bottom of the drink menu. The Naked Bike Ride was added because one of the odd things that happens at this Solstice parade is that people actually ride naked on their bicycles on the parade route. OYE! I have never had the desire to see naked people and especially naked people on bicycles. Very weird and I’ll spare you the photos since I deleted them anyway. The drink made you wince, too, which was appropriate.
The parade participants and the crowd were very colorful.
I’ll leave you with the least distasteful of the bike riders we saw…
The Fremont area of Seattle is quite eclectic or quirky and well for a lot of us, down right weird. There are great places to eat here and it always gives you the best people watching opportunities…
