Today I joined Ed on a little trip to a hobby shop. When we pulled up he said, "Great. It's right next door to a biker bar." While he went into the hobby shop, I walked over and took a few pictures.
This mural on the side of the building doesn't look too bashful. Oooooh, big bad biker guy driving his hog or pig or whatever they call their bikes, through the wall. Watch out for flying cinder blocks!
TheThe Bashful Bandit has been in Tucson for as long as I can remember, and that's at least thirty years. I've passed it a million times, but have never stopped or gone in. Bikers aren't really my cup of tea.
If I remember correctly, this place really packs 'em in. On weekend nights, it was always packed, people spilling out of the doors and congregating around their bikes. I wonder if they have a bar and/or parking lot brawl minimum - there's gotta be at least one a night. I peeked in the door - saw a pool table, a rack of pool cues by the door and not much else...it was dark and a wee bit scary - and I was there during the daylight hours!
If you plan on going, you can find it here:
