Biking To The Pops

On Friday night I pedaled only two miles to the Lowry Zoo Park for a Florida Orchestra Pops in the Park performance at 7:30 PM. The guest conductor was a funny man from Milwaukee named Stuart Chafetz, who was a cross between Newman from the Seinfeld show and Johan Strauss. He was proud to conduct the Florida Orchestra and repeated several times to the big crowd, "Here's YOUR Florida Orchestra!"

This being Tampa there's always one hothead in the crowd -- this woman who wanted to drive her car INTO the seating area but was stopped.

Great crowd was there. Probably several thousand.
