I know most nerds dream of going to the San Diego Comic Con. Taking in that big massive comic convention . Having fun , checking out all the costumes people wear and looking for the comics they need. And you see the line outside...thousands upon thousands are waiting to get in ! Its like heaven for a comic book guy or gal to enjoy. Of course ya know it takes a shitload of money and time if you live on the East coast to get there. To enjoy that week of great comics. For most it is the place they wanna go. But not me.
My dream is to go to the Full Throttle Saloon ! Now your asking...Richard ...what is the Full Throttle Saloon ?
Its a cool biker bar in Sturgis , South Dakota . Its claimed to be the biggest biker bar going right now and like the San Diego Comic Con , comes once a year for the big motorcycle rally that attracts nearly 300,000+ people a year. It also is the subject of a cool Tru TV show that has followed Michael Ballard (owner) , Jessie James Dupree (singer of Jackyl and co-owner) , and the various other employees of the Full Throttle .
For 10 days a week , Ballard and Dupree have only those days to make as much money as possible for the year. So its a big gamble and product he's putting out . A huge gamble each year we have seen Ballard add more to the Full Throttle and deal with insane employees who drink too much and ones who try to steal as well.
In fact heres a commercial of it...
"Pa Poooow !" lol
Anyhow it looks like huge fun for what you see on TV. Everyone seems to look like their having a hell of time as the old bands play like Marshall Tucker and Molly Hatchet . So for me...as much as San Diego looks fun...I wanna go to the Full Throttle Saloon . Who is with me ?
