The second annual Tweed Ride on Saturday night was a huge success. Everyone was looking dapper and stylish in their tweed, and everyone had a great time, thanks to the five local establishments that supported: Robbie Fox’s Public House, Canteen Modern Tequila Bar, Casey Moore’s Oyster House, Yucca Tap Room, and Boulders on Broadway!
