The residents of Meltzer, all seniors or disabled, especially enjoy Tuesday nights, when the Spiegel Cafe bar a few doors away hosts "Two Wheel Tuesday" – a weekly motorcycle event that brings 50 bikers to 2nd Street. It's a fun evening from 7PM - 1AM as bikers gun their engines and race around the block all night. Who needs sleep when you're elderly or sick? Good times!
