All Revved Up

Ladies and gentleman, start your engines. Wide Open Motorcycle magazine is throwing a weekend coming out party for the city’s biker bandits and two-wheeled rebels. The event features a best-in-show contest, with $1,000 for the winner. In all, more than 20 grand in gas, cash, trips and prizes will rain down like confetti on participants of the two-day extravaganza. Giveaways also include a free trip to the nation’s most notorious gatherings of motorized mayhem, the Sturgis rally. Local DJ Slacker runs the turntables, spinning out tunes to complement the muscular roar of the city’s most badass choppers. The hogs gather today from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. at the exhibit hall of Metropolitan Community College (1775 Universal Avenue) Tickets cost $15; kids younger than 12 get in free.
