Northbound on 3rd Avenue at 3rd street outside of Rick's Cabaret, a pickup truck whose license I won't list because the driver moved immediately upon correction was parked in the bike lane. Then, Minnesota license 325 WHB was parked in the bike lane and I had words with that driver as well. One of the mobile phalluses that "works" at Rick's Cabaret hollered some abuse at me down the street. Then, southbound on 3rd Avenue at 3rd Street, Minnesota license 453 TEE turned right across a traffic lane and failed to yield to a vehicle already in the lane.
Northbound on 3rd Avenue at 3rd Street, Minnesota license 145 XAL ran a red light. Then Minnesota license AHU 678 parked in the bike lane and crosswalk outside of Rick's Cabaret. I stopped to encourage them to leave the bike lane, and one of the walking gonads that works at Rick's engaged the driver in conversation with the aim of delaying their exit from the bike lane. I exchanged some more words with the barely-sentient bundles of testosterone that throw people out of Rick's, then followed AHU 678 across the street to the southbound bike lane, where they were once again parked. They drove up the bike lane to the limit line and stopped again in the bike lane. Finally, as I approached, they made a right turn and went the fuck away. Then, southbound on 3rd Avenue at 5th Street, Minnesota license 700 WHK ran a red light.
Northbound on 3rd Avenue at 3rd Street, Minnesota license LM5795 parked in the bike lane and the crosswalk simultaneously outside of Rick's Cabaret. I spoke to the driver, who moved their vehicle. As I walked north to have a conversation with another vehicle (whose license I didn't catch) parked in the bike lane, one of the delightful and professional bouncers at Rick's hollered some abuse at me down the sidewalk (they've gotten rather used to seeing me hanging about the door of their shop). I headed back south on 3rd Street, then came back a few minutes later to find another vehicle, Minnesota license LM5577 was parked in both the crosswalk and the bike lane. I spoke with the driver, who moved.
The Situation at rick's
The 3rd Avenue and 3rd Street bike lanes were built to protect cyclists. Instead, they serve as a parking lot for the valet service at Rick's Cabaret and the hustle economy cars that drop off patrons.
