of all, I want to say a big Thank You to all who replied to the
letter last week about the passing of my Father. Your condolences and
words of encouragement were needed and appreciated at this time. We are
happy that he is in a much better place and not suffering. Mrs. C. and
are doing well but will sorely miss him during the upcoming holidays.
After a couple of weeks of
almost full time helping Dad and then planning the memorial, I am back
to work and trying to catch up. There are couple of Unique events
coming up over the next week that I wanted to mention today.
event is happening this Friday,
Sept. 28th that you might want to participate in. For the first
time ever at the Cyclerides.com Bike Night at Westgate,
we will have an OUTSIDE BEER GARDEN
that will stretch from Coyote Blvd. to Bar Louie's across the bridge
between the fountains. Inspired by the design of a cement truck, The Monkey Mixer (Click
Here for Photo) – as the vehicle is called – replaces what
would typically be a spinning drum to keep concrete from hardening with
a massive, shiny, silver cocktail shaker. In total, the mixer is over
27-feet long, 13-feet tall and 8-feet wide, with a capacity of about
2,400 gallons. Monkey Shoulder brags that the shaker could hold the
equivalent of 123,000 bottles of the brand’s Scotch.
The Monkey Mixer is a party on wheels
that holds more than just booze: It’s also equipped with a 2,000-plus
watt sound system featuring three amplifiers, four speakers and three
subwoofers (which should keep those cocktails shaking). The truck will
be making its debut at the Cyclerides.com Bike Night at Westgate on
Friday, September 28th where the brand will
be serving up a drink called the Mixed Up Monkey directly from the
mixer’s chute. Hang out in the beer garden between the
fountains, enjoy some Mixed Up Monkey and listen to Live Music by "Skarlett Fever" from 6-9
PM. And music from the Monkey Mixer in between. Stop by and enjoy the
fun this Friday night, 9/28, from 5-9 PM at Westgate Entertainment
District at the Loop 101 & W. Glendale Ave.
event I want to mention is that the 6th
Annual Geico Motorcycle Hot Bike Tour is coming to Arizona this
year giving you the opportunity to ride with some of the best
motorcycle builders in the United States. Ride a day or ride each day.
Take part and ride on this journey with motorcycle enthusiasts,
editors, pro builders, and industry leaders to celebrate the open road
as HOT BIKE magazine comes to life. This
rolling rally will feature epic rides in a loop throughout the state of
Arizona in a unique experience like no other motorcycle event. Those
who ride from the start to the finish of the Tour are termed
“LongRiders” and will be held in the highest honor. All makes and
models of bikes will be allowed to participate. Throughout the tour,
bike owners will be able to pick up and take off from any city
