The last I see of them, the holdouts are walking to a dive bar on the next block for the after-party, shouting at Margie not to stop in the middle of the street when she starts jaywalking. I guess one of the little-known effects of going on The Amazing Race is that it makes you impervious to traffic when on foot.
All in all, I came away very impressed with everyone: Stitch for hosting, the organizers for making it happen, the people who went for being such a great crowd, and the Racers, for not only showing up, but being so uniformly good-natured about meeting every single person who came up to them. They all seemed to be enjoying themselves. Even Jaime.
