We're rained out for April 8! We're two for two on the rainout odds. We are also OFF next week because of Redmond Town Center's "Eggstravaganza" on the 15th where you can come and pet some bunnies and goats without looking weird. It's unclear if you can pet the bunnies in the bounce house at the same time, or bounce around in there with a few goats. They are turning our parking lot into a bunny ranch and petting zoo for the day. It does say, "Goats and chicks petting zoo!" so I'm kind of thinking about that one. It looks like fun and you can get sprinkled with glitter and your face painted too. Bring the kids, have some fun! They support us, so let's support them! Get sprinkled! Find some eggs!
Our next possible opening day is April 22, 2017. I put the year down just in case some of you are time traveling with the kids that week.
We do have a BIG surprise showing up on the 22nd. We will say what it is as we get closer to the 22nd. You won't want to miss what shows up that day. It's cool. I'm not kidding.
The 22nd is also Earth Day, so here's my letter to Mrs. Earth.
Dear Mrs. Earth,
I hope this letter finds you well. I just wanted to say that without you, I'd be nothing. No, seriously, nothing. I mean it! Nothing! Not even a neutrino passing through on its way to somewhere, only to splat on some far giant, very dense mass or get sucked into a black hole to then continue on its journey after that wild ride. So small that nothing would ever notice...or care.
I feel lucky to firmly stand on you as you rip around the sun at 67,000 miles an hour without me or the fat guy sitting next to me lifting off and floating around this cafe like cheap Safeway balloons. I admit, I have a love-hate relationship with your gravity having felt your wrath throughout my life, especially the time I rode my bike off the ramp and forgot to stand up, but without you, where would I be?
With the sun moving along within our galaxy at 514,000 miles an hour, and our galaxy zinging through space at 2,237,000 miles an hour, it makes that crappy Prius rather pointless on the very day we celebrate, you. We're glad you're here. Don't go changing. Oh, and please don't hit something, and thanks for letting us go along for the ride until you do.
We also made some minor changes to our website because we're getting a lot of people asking if their car is qualified to get into E@RTC. We direct your attention to the FAQ tab where we do our best to help you sort it out. If not, please ask and we will gladly help you.
We also broke out the rules into a new tab because we get a lot of questions, that are also in the FAQ section, which is how we created our FAQ section in the first place. After all, they are FAQs. We look forward to seeing you all very soon! We're already getting complaints like we had something to do with the weather. Oh, we wish. Think of the money we'd make and the friends we'd have.
