Even if you've never wanted to own a motorcycle, admit it, you've at least wanted to be in a bike gang. Not a gun-toting, Gimme Shelter gang maybe, but an open road, Easy Rider bunch? With American flag helmets, leather jackets, and a mean pair of cowboy boots? Definitely.
Well, that dream isn't dead if it happens to be this Tuesday and you're heading over to Picnics 50's Diner at 6 p.m. for Motosport Bike Night. Think of it as a book club, except there's absolutely no reading and everyone arrives on a motorcycle. Plus the diner is a complete flashback. Located inside Allen's drugstore, it has swivel stools, vinyl booths, and all the food that gave Marilyn Monroe those incredible hips shakes, sundaes, and chocolate pancakes. The night ends at 10, but you might want to be a rebel and demand to stay longer.
