We didn't actually go there for Thanksgiving,(we've got our grandma's for that) but for a little pre-Thanksgiving cheer the night before. Whilst quaffing down an assortment of beers (and the Lucky Cat does have a great selection of micro brews: Bud drinkers need not apply), we talked of plans for next year's Walt Ride 2010. On the table are rides to Eureka Springs, Ark.; twisty roads of Minnesota's Arrowhead region, or the South Dakota Black Hills. The IronWorks executive planning committee will have its work cut out making a choice as all are great riding options. No doubt, Walt himself would agree. Anyway of important note is that the weekend of Dec 5th, we are going to brew up a special batch of beer with a lot of rye; we'll think of a good name and make it the official beer of the IronWorks club. Brewmaster Christian is the man with the plan. Stand by for details. And Little Timmy, we missed you last night.
The first official "winter" motorcycle movie night is scheduled for 7 p.m., Friday, Nov. 20 at Christian's house. The classic "On Any Sunday" will be the feature. Steve McQueen, Mert Lawill, Malcom Smith show motorcycle grit back in the day when men were men; smoked unfiltered cigs; rode with open-face helmets and bubble shields; guzzled Schlitz beer the gallons, and there was none of this politically correct mamby-pamby limp-wristed bulls**t about two-strokes hurting polar ice caps and the East Asian Chipmunck population, or hurting someone's feelings. Screw that. Bring your favorite libation and step back to 1970, man.
