Did you have lunch at one of the listed eateries on Friday, December 4th?  I had lunch and coffee (and read my paperback) at ‘At Last Cafe’ on Orange near Broadway. The food was great, and my outdoor table beneath a tree was perfect for some pleasure reading time. The first Friday of January with be the 1st. No restaurants will be open on that day, so… the next ‘Lunch Breaks for Cyclists’ first Friday will be February 5th.

Lunch Breaks for Cyclists is part of the Car-Free Fridays initiative coordinated by the City of Long Beach (as promoted by BikeLongBeach dot org) in which all people are encouraged to bike to work, one day per month at the very least.
