Babies in Mind

There was a time when the American biker was considered a terrifying
outlaw — drunk and violent, burning down the interstate and, if
you were lucky, not stopping in your town. Some of today’s riders use
that dangerous old image to help people. Example: Kansas City’s
Bikers for Babies. According to the group’s Web site, Bikers for
Babies raised more than $630,000 in its annual ride to benefit the
March of Dimes last year — more than any March of Dimes
motorcycle ride in the country. Come help the bighearted riders do it
again today during a fundraiser event at Fathead & Braindeads
Saloon. Activities include a wet-T-shirt contest, a dunk booth, music,
raffles, a slow-ride outdoor obstacle course, and games with awesome
names such as “Weenie Bite.” The festivities start at 11:30 a.m. at
Fathead & Braindeads (514 Main in Grandview, 816-761-6060). Prices
vary depending on what game or raffle you want to enter, but there’s no
cover until 8 p.m., when the Uncle Jam band gets under way and the cost
is $5. See
for more information.
