The beer garden opens around noon with beats and beer flowing until 6 pm, when ruddy troops lay down their arms and rinse themselves clean of pulp and juice. Bring an extra pair of clothes because things could get very juicy!

There is also a costume contest, so be sure to rock something creative and memorable.

    Ok who ordered the rock hard tomatoes, especially the green ones... I thought they were supposed to be post-ripe but it takes out the fun when a rock-hard green tomato cuts the bridge if your nose :( happened to my son today and made him bleed.

      Hi Monique. I have two for a carpool. What time did you decide on and where? Tom

    • Monique ".

      Carpool leaves at 12:30 pm from Maggiano's parking lot at South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa. Nobody else has expressed interest in carpooling so it may just be us.
      (I need to be there shortly after 1pm since I'm hosting.)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
