Back in 1926, El Cid on Sunset used to be called Jail Cafe. They wouldn’t give you cutlery with your chicken dinners.

LEGS! We were out in Aspen for the street sprints during the USA Pro Challenge. Some USA Cycling fundraiser of some sort. Each team of 4 or 6 needed $10,000 to enter. Big wigs. Big legs. You know the drill. Anyway, this character was there to race for the USA Track Team (I bet they didn’t have to pay the 10k). He was gracious enough to allow me to take a photo of his legs.
