BBB Warehouse Art Show & Auction Recap

The Gang over at Burro Bags, Zombie Bikes, and Royal Treatment Records put together a great event this past Saturday. Local artists stepped up and created some really interesting painted bike frames. And not to be out done still more local artists created fantastic designs for the hand made Burro Bags.

What was the purpose of all this? To consume some Bold City style fermented hops of course. And to also raise funds for Zombie Bikes Co-Op. That's right folks, The fine guys and gals that so freely volunteer their time for the Co-Op still have bills to pay. The Co-Op needs to pay rent, lights and water just like rest of us.

The day started off with lots of friendly games of polo and morphed into more fun to watch but abusive games like whiplash, foot down, and a round of tall bike jousting. Overall, there was a lot art made, lots of stuff raffled, old friends hugged and new friends made. If things keep going the way they are, Jacksonville might just find itself with a sprawling case of bike culture.

More pictures of the event can be found over at Jaxscene and Jack's Jax.

that looked like a lot of fun. Cool art work on the bags. Too bad I missed it.
