The Great Fork In The Road gets dressed for Valentine's Day!
All of you who are forkers or forkettes (fans of The Original Great Fork In The Road, of course), listen up real good. The Great Fork In The Road, located in Pasadena and the "Fork In The Road Gang", located at The Coffee Gallery in Altadena are presenting their latest Forking Event.
For Valentine's Day, not only will The Fork be dressed in hearts (see photo), but she will be the site of much love and appreciation. What love and appreciation? I have only been given hints from the leaders of the gang.
The Grand Forkster himself, Bob Stane had this to say:
"Things are being planned. There will be roses in our futures. There will be music and love and romantic guys with long hair, guitars and frilly white shirts. Good taste will be abandoned
for another day as ladies will be romanced with flowers and music. And Golden Hugs.
"There will be photo ops and silly stuff and thou shalt be pleased. And The Coffee Gallery Backstage will, again, brighten all of our lives with wit, humor and imagination. Oh, what is The Fork In The Road Gang going to do next? Will the voice of Cupid ring forth in our town by the mysterious coffee mountains?
"The fork is out there and waiting if you want you do your own photography. But this is just a tease for what will happen on Valentine's Day. But "teases are good." Something like foreplay. Oh, Bob, now you're talking. M-m-m-m-m. Folks will be driving by and anticipating what is about to happen. Laughter will echo from the hills. Will the build-up be equal to the actual event (an all day bash, no less)?"
Well, Bob does get carried away a bit. And yes, he even sometimes refers to himself in the first person when he writes. But he has much to contemplate and atone for.
So keep your eye on the fork, come on down and take pictures at the foot of this monumental utensil under the spreading hearts, and there may be flowers in your future. Or other things.
