Tonight. Tuesday, 6/20/2017, marks the one year anniversary of the loss of Arturo Zamarripa. The Zamarripa family has invited all who knew Art to come celebrate his life at their home. If you'd like to spend some time with the Zamarripa family, meet at their home - 213 S. Melrose Street, Placentia CA 92870. We will be there from 6:00-8:00pm. From there we will ride to the V-Room. If you can't make the ride to the Zamarripa house then go straight to the V-Room at 7:00pm. #tacomototuesday to-go tacos available across the street, bring them in! #artforeverforeverart
I think they have to change this sign out every year, it gets completely covered in stickers.
For the last two weeks (give or take) we've been posting photography form the ALIEN RUN 2017 in Rachel Nevada at the Little A'Le'Inn. I've got to give huge hugs and kisses to the Little A'Le'Inn for the hospitality they show us year after year! FREE CAMPING!!! Brent @alienrun, and anyone else working to Keeping Grassroots Events free from the corporate marketing marginalization!!! Thanks to everyone involved in contributing, supporting, creating, attending, building, burning, blowing up, cooking, bartending, cleaning up afterwards, or in any way otherwise contributing to the collective! This is YOUR event, not ours! People NOT Profits done right. Make Friends Not Fans. SUPPORT GRASSROOT EVENTS!
... until next year.
... or you hyper gate back in time and attend the event again unbeknown to us!
I've got some crazy video coming of James jumping the BROBOT BONFIRE (totally insane dangerous deadly consequences, do not try this at home, or anywhere), so there's still more ALIEN RUN 2017 on the way...
Imagine weekly open-to-everyone motorcycle meet-ups that just exist to gather friends (new and old) together for no other reason but to eat tacos and drink some beers? We even let the sober hamburger eaters join us! It's been well over two years now and Taco Moto Tuesday is still cranking it out.
@tacomototuesday on the IG for next weeks meet spot.
So if I'm going to buy into any raffle it better contain something really cool. Not just stuff I can ordinarily buy online or at some shop. I'm looking for "uniqueness" amongst the average! That's why we encourage artists, craftsmen, and fabricators to toss some skill dust our way and paste glitter up the universe B-hole! Gotta shout out to a few people who made incredible contributions this year, and I hope I don't leave anyone out:
Kyles Kustoms @kyleskustoms82 on the IG who created the most awesome "get probed" tank I think I've ever seen!!!! just WOW!!!!
Zombie Performance who brought us this years Best of Area51 Bike Trophies, His and Her bottle openers (funny) and Point Covers. www.zombieperformance.com
Ricky Bongos fabbed up some great Alien green tail light / license plate mounts.
Psycho Resin once again outdid themselves with more alien / area51 unique tail light lenses! Thank you. www.psychoresin.bigcartel.com
Ando_Tattoo out of Bullhead City saw the invitation to artists, and took the time to paint an incredible work of Alien Biker art (hey, if we had more time we would have easily made some shirts with the same designs!!!! next year....)
Danny Luong @danhluo also contributed some neat alien art that our very own Vinnie Vegas WAS able to screen onto shirts. Thanks Danny and Vinnie!
We had a bunch of other great stuff, I'm sure I'm going to forget who donated what? I don't even know who made the "crash" trophy?
Main Street Moto donated shirts and hats, AlienBuilt (Brent) handed out patch and sticker packs! Douche Larouche had a bunch of support shirts in the raffle.
ohhhh and @WussArmy Kit painted a BILTWELL Gringo helmet too! Thanks Kit and thanks Bill from @Biltwell for keeping Kit supplied with the perfect canvas to slap paint across!!
...and yeah, Lady Hump threw in our screened shirts, patches, books, buttons, and a event shop rag allotment (I love making shop rags for events I support. Gives you something to lose out your back pocket on the way home. jk. Gives you something to hang in the garage!)
