Could there be a better time to attend a monster truck show? With rising gas prices, a mounting recession, and environmental paranoia, it might be our only escape from reality. Its not the most sophisticated sporting event, but youd be hard-pressed to find anything more kick-ass. There is something extremely gratifying about watching gigantic cars jump over piles of flaming rubble while AC/DCs TNT blares loudly to explosions and headbanging mullets.
It might seem wasteful and irresponsible, but the roars of those engines, the screams of the crowd, and the great taste of a tallboy will make you forget all the worlds frivolous problems. Dust off your favorite flannel shirt and come celebrate a night of a good ol American excess, when Monster Jam: Summer Heat barrels through the BankAtlantic Center this Friday and Saturday. Tickets cost $20, $10 for the kids. Visit www.bankatlanticcenter.com for showtimes.
