As you may or may not know, the southern walkway of the Ben Franklin Bridge will be closing on 2/22 for approximately 14 months. Let's get out there and take advantage of the great weather they're calling for and give the walkway a nice sendoff. Meet me at Yards @ 5:45pm. We'll set out @ 6ish, then end at the brewery for some beers. All faces, all paces welcome.
