    I am not one to stop at bars (Much) but there is this little country bar in the middle of now where Kansas. Hillsdale Kansas... They have free hot dogs and salted peanuts by the bucket full. On Sunday the have a grill going and you bring it and cook it. Anyway, the advertise as home of the free winner and salty nuts. I love a good sense of humor.

    @NickJ do you think you could create a map with pins on it for these spots as they get posted here?

    I'm starting to think I'd like to make a bucket list of places to visit and IndianRiders to visit!

    How about this:

    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1r2hPAenbcjWJPzYBUe2qBy4y-CQ&usp=sharing

    I have created a Google Map and added a Layer called "Biker Bars." Anyone that clicks through with this link should be able to add their favorite watering holes to that layer.

    If we need to add layers for different things, I can certainly do that.

    The map is excellent. Perhaps a link direct to it on the Home Page?

    Let's get some more places populated on there and I will see what I can do to get a link in the sidebar.

    Not much of a bar goer these days. Got burnt out on 'em when I was in the band and playing in bars 4 - 6 nights a week. It does get old after a couple years of doing it non-stop. Anyway, about the only biker bar I frequent, as infrequently as I frequent it, would be Cactus Jack's up in Evergreen, CO. I only go there because My buddy Ronnie Roadhawg drags me there after rides. Occasionally they do an open mic night that I go to when I have the time, sometimes to heckle and sometimes to be heckled. I don't have any pictures of the place other than the one over there
    <-------------------------------
    But I did find this one from when it got flooded a couple years ago ... ;)

    cjacksflood.jpg
    This was taken from across the creek, but since it's all creek I guess that's irrelevant. Anyway that's the back deck of Cactus Jack's. Ronnie Roadhawg built the awning over the stage area there towards the middle of the flood. Ronnie was so proud that it didn't sustain any structural damage whereas the outside portion of the deck closest to where the creek is 'supposed' to be all had to be rebuilt. ;) To the right of that under a couple feet of water, is the parking lot where to bikes usually are. It's probably a good thing they weren't there on this day. In the foreground is where the creek is really supposed to be. It's usually about 4 feet lower than it is here ...
