It’s Utter Maddness I Tell You!

What in the name of God could be manlier than smoking your favorite cigars at the race track, eating all you can force-in-your-face barbecue, sucking down ice-cold brewzers, while hanging out with hot chicks and Harley Davidsons? I think you know the answer.

Meadowlands Madness (Smokin BBQ 2) makes its triumphant return to the Meadowlands Racetrack, here in lovely Sopranosville in northern New Jersey. This a one hell of an event, and I know because I attended the first one a couple of years ago and have been hoping for another one ever since.

SPHAMBLE8 CONLONNow I know a lot of you guys aren’t in this area, but the event is absolutely worth the trip. First of all, the Meadowlands Complex is less than five miles from mid town Manhattan in p1010160New York City so there’s plenty to do! And, the event itself is top-shelf and any self respecting REAL guy will never want to leave! First off, you walk through the gate and you get a goody bag with cigars and other cool swag that bbq-jalapeno-burgers-on-grillis definitely worth more than the price you pay for admission! Now I know they’re not here this time, but at the first event, the CAO Flavorette girls greeted us and that was sweeter than any cigar I smoked that night – which was probably in the ten range! We get our very own private area with tents, tables, chairs, and an up close view of the track. And this is great because NOBODY can give us any crap about the smell of our prized premium smokes! I remember that they had like 50 feet long row of outdoor grills brimming with charred chicken, burgers, doggies, along with tater salad, baked beans (don’t get near me) and all kinds of major-league goodies.

Panheads, shovelheads, V-Twins, you name it – the hogs will be out in full force and the incredibly wicked hot models with their huge , um, smiles, will be there to answer all your questions – even though you won’t hear a word they say.

Of course there’s horse racing, and the Meadowlands gets some of the best trotters and pacers in the world to compete, including many a high stakes race. I’ve visited that track many, many times and it’s always a great experience, especially on a nice summer day!

Okay, all of this is great stuff… right? It’s planned for June 24, the day that I go away on my family vacation. I am presently at war with the wife and kids to push our holiday retreat back one day, but I am meeting more resistance than the Germans at the Russian front! I’ll let you guys know how it goes.

chicken_barbecue_sauceAll in all, I give this manly event a TEN Torpedo rating, and SO worth checking out. I mean you spend the entire evening amongst your fellow Brothers of the Leaf, while testosterone oozes from every bodily pore. You will smoke handrolled premiums til your head explodes and I guarantee your wife will hate how you smell when you come home – if you decide to, that is. What else is new, right?

So join the JR gang for an evening of happiness and horseplay. God knows I’m trying to follow my own advice!

Later my bruthas,

Tommy Z.
