Picture of the Week – Functional Art!

Bike Rack in front of Bad Daddy’s Burger – Raleigh

I grabbed this photo yesterday while visiting Tyler’s Taproom in Seaboard Station last night for the Raleigh Beer Guide Launch Party. Apparently this bike rack has been around for a while but it just caught my eye last night. You may have noticed that recently there are some creative looking bike racks poppin up around downtown. This is one of my favorites so far. As you can see, it is located right in front of Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar. Moments after I took this shot somebody came up and locked their bike to it. Functional art. I like it!
