Kansas City Bike Nights By Doc Davis


One of the first things I learned in school


(yes, I went to school) was that Mondays suck. The weekend ended and I didn’t win the lot- tery, so, it’s back to the grind, a couple of bor- ing evenings, nothing to get excited about until Wednesday. During the day I begin to get crav- ings for Long Islands and pulled pork with fries, it just makes me want to sing! I know the per- fect spot where Bike Night specials start at 5:30, Hurricane Allie’s Bar and Grill at 5541 Merriam Drive in Merriam, KS. 913-217- 7665. Bike Night, brisket, beer, babes, a D.J. and karaoke are a great way to spend Wednes- day evening in the Shawnee area. Food and drink specials change every day and they are all good, plus there’s always a good crowd of friendly bikers at Hurricane Allie’s. After my sandwich and a couple of drinks I need a little fresh air, turbo-charged into my nostrils at highway speeds. After saying goodnight to Allie and the crew I aim the handlebars east, across the city to Highway 71 south in search


of more Bike Night happenings. And Bike Night is happening at Gail’s


Harley-Davidson at 5900 East 150 Highway, Grandview,


Mo. 816-966-2222,


www.feelthepower.com. From 5pm to 7pm Gail’s offers complimentary food and drinks while you check out the bikes, the riders and the various specials on riding gear, parts and accessories and those things that you don’t have yet, but, want to get now. With events like ‘Gailapalooza’, Gail’s All American Invitational Motorcycle Show, the ride to benefit The Wounded Warrior Project, and many other events that get scooter tramps involved in their community has made Gail’s Harley-Davidson a respected institution on the Midwest Coast. It’s a good feeling doing business with people like this. Speaking of good feelings, it’s time for me to split the wind for a short ride. It was such a nice ride that I was turning on


to Foxwood Dr. in Raymore before I realized it. There’s the address I’m looking for, 1276 West


Foxwood Drive, Raymore, Mo., Thirsty Ernie’s Sports Bar and Grill. Wednesday is Bike Night, live music tonight and weekends, $2.00 Rolling Rock, seven new items on the already extensive menu, lunch specials change daily, outside patio and this is one of the biggest bars in the whole Kansas City area. There is a lot more to do than sit at the bar and watch sports on over 40 televisions, if you get tired of that. Being a family oriented place Thirsty Ernie’s has games like QB1, Golden Tee, Buzz Time Trivia, along with pool, poker and other games. Then there is live music, karaoke, D.J.’s, danc- ing, and for the special occasions like gradua- tion, reunions and other parties there is the “Club Suite”. That’s a lot to do and this is a big
