Back to back with the La Vuelta Car Cruise. Normally it would be bi-weekly but since it's almost the end of summer or maybe its already over (peace out summer I never really liked you) they had their last Wednesday's meet last night. But for the big finale they will have their special event on a Saturday with road blocks.
I was finally reunited with a good friend of mine, Jason Huggins. If you're new to this blog then you might not know him. Especially since I used his real name haha. Jason is one of the owners of 5&A Dime, Hickies & Dryhumps, Butts Ta Nuts. We haven't been able to hang out in a very long time, but we recently got to catch up and got the momentum going. Relationships/friendships are like flowers, you gotta water it. I felt like I haven't been watering our friendship so it's important to me to make time for my boy Jason. I always thought he was just too busy cuz he's never at the shop, but he was always home (upstairs). It was a very special night to have Jason out with us. The Lowrider meet was poppin'. He had Salud tacos for the first time and loved it. He got to experience the vibe, the music, the culture, we all love so much together. There is something about lowrider meets that I love so much. It's not just the cars. It's so fucking authentic, and just how I remember it from my childhood, it's still the same! Not much as change but the faces. I love the oldies music pouring out of every speakers available on the block. From the Dj's to the lowriders passing by. Lowrider culture is timeless, I'm just happy to be able to witness this and capture it with my camera. I took most of my pictures with my film camera, working on a new gallery soon so once I get those done, I'll add them to my site.
I tried to get to Barrio Logan as early as possible so I can chill at Por Vida before the cruise started, but traffic was bad so I got there around 5 PM. Still had enough time to enjoy my Spicy Sandia Lemonada, introduced that to Jay as well. Chopped it up while we waited for Dook to show up for dinner and as soon as he arrived, we headed straight to Salud.
