Things have been a little quiet on the ol’ blog front this week because it’s a crazy one at work. Bikes, Blues and Barbecue started today and while the locals may shy away from the noise and the crowds, I can’t complain because
visitors = money spent in hotels & restaurants = my salary
Three cheers for tourism!
For sanity’s sake, here’s my previous description of the booming rally:
“ Bikes, Blues & BBQ is a motorcycle rally that features live music and, of course, a barbecue contest. Over 400,000 people made their way to our little town this year to ride their Harleys through the Ozarks, drink lots of beer, and of course, consume countless funnel cakes and corndogs.”
Remember last year when I got to hang out the side of a helicopter like a badass?
Yeah, it was awesome.
I don’t know that I’ll get an opportunity that cool this year,
but the rally has just begun and you never know…
In the meantime, I’m off to find some leather chaps, a bandana and a few hundred thousand new friends.
