SOMEWHERE ON THE MKT TRAIL — Hundreds of cyclists attended the Boone Dawdle 2011, a fundraiser for the True/False Film Festival. It began with a bicycle ride to the Les Bourgeois Winery in Rocheport. Once there, attendees ate a buffet dinner, attended a concert by the band Capybara and a screening of the film “Last Days Here.”
