200 mpg Baby!

75 mpg Baby!

Anyone in the vicinity of the Alpert JCC in Long Beach last week may have witnessed somewhat of a bizarre sight – a grammy nominated, Hassidic hip hop/reggae artist puttering around the parking lot in a totally sweet Vespa scooter. The Vespa LXV 150 to be exact. It’s a sweet machine, with long standing hipster cred, a highway safe maximum speed of 59 miles per hour and, in keeping with the Greenkeit element of our Festival, capable of 70-75 miles per gallon. Wow. And did I mention that it was hellaciously fun to ride too? Yeah… sometimes running the Jewlicious Festival can be loads of fun! How much fun? Well, Matisyahu owns a Harley and he was still all giggly riding the Vespa. Thank you good people at Vespa for lending us your awesome scooters! As for the rest of the Festival?

  • It’s bad enough he pretends to do the reggae and hip hop thing and people applaud him for it. If he starts does the ska or mod thing I’m leavin’.

  • Thank you, ck, for being my first Vespa buddy! Great picture, great weekend, great everything =)

    Pretends to do hip hop and reggae? Pretty sure thats what he does. You might not like his style but what makes hip hop and reggae? I hope music isnt divided by color class and religion.
