SFBP #52 – The Coven LookBook

Well my pretties, something witchy this way comes…

It’s a coven of Bike Partiers! That’s right, we’ll be casting a spell on the streets of San Francisco on Friday, May 1st, and you’re invited.  Dust off your broom, pull out your cape and fill up your cauldron, it’s the witching hour! If you live under some rock and have never seen a real witch before (are you from Kansas or something?) then we’ve got you covered in black right here!  Meet us at Cupid’s Span at 7:30pm, we go brooms up at 8:00, sharp! Bwahahahahaha!
