The Best Bar in America A Feature Film by Eric and Damon Ristau

A whiskey-fueled writing assignment takes one man on an epic motorcycle road trip through the bars and taverns across the American West. Riding a 1960 BMW R60/2 motorcycle with a sidecar, Sanders (Andrew Rizzo) is a down-on-his-luck writer on a mission to chronicle every watering hole along the way. With help of fellow traveler and dharma bum, Northway (David Ackroyd) and a variety of other colorful characters along the way, Sanders learns the way of the road and the zen of the bar.

Motorcycling the West, sleeping on the ground, chasing mermaids, and drinking in America’s most legendary taverns, Sanders experiences firsthand the brotherhood of the bike and bar. Along the way, he gets advice from Ernest Hemingway and Jim Harrison on writing, drinking, and living life to the fullest. The Best Bar in America is a classic road movie for the modern age.

    Well I wouldn't say it was a five star movie, however; I would say it was a five star event in terms of keeping the group alive in the off season and greeting new/old acquaintances/friends. Thanks Laurie and team!

    Looks like a fun movie from the trailer. Having experienced the Wings Warehouse venue to see the Cannonball Run movie yesterday, it is a nice little niche for us to have such events. Having to purchase the bars food & drinks is a good trade off for not having to mess with renting a spot or bringing, setting up, and cleaning up in my opinion. I'm willing to pay for the no muss-no fuss convenience.

    I actually read about this movie in the United Airline magazine and the review was very positive. I have never been to wing warehouse before, so this is going to be a double treat! Are we watching this at the WW?

    1 · January 2, 2014

    • Laurie

      Yes we will be watching this at WW in the back room..... They have a large room that we can use to project the movie on a large screen..... can not bring food or drinks here but a great place
