Bikes Blues and BBQ 2009

This weekend is the 10th anniversary of Bikes Blues and BBQ in Fayetteville! I love it! I know there is actually quite a bit of opposition to the event, but it’s only 4 days a year and it brings in so much money to the local community and all the proceeds of the event go to local charities – can you really complain about that? There are about 200,000 people in the Washington-Benton county area on any given day, but during BBBBQ that jumps to about 700,000. I went out on Friday night for some great local live music. We started out with a fabulous seat on the balcony of Hog Haus and enjoyed happy hour beers and watched the bikers ride up and down Dickson Street. Then we went down to Jose’s to hear Leah and Mojo Doctors play – this was their 9th year to play at the rally! We made a quick stop at the Walton Arts Center for cheap beer and and clean bathrooms – it was definitely worth the $1 donation to have a clean bathroom. Then we headed over to the main event stage to watch Big Un’s play and eat some BBQ!!!
Big Un’s always has a great show, but last night may have been the best ever – they seriously rocked!!!

Can’t wait for next year!
