Dec 16th, another day that will live in infamy! The Pit Stop Bar and Billiards in Kinston, NC, was the scene of the 1st Annual Ugly Sweater Contest. The place was packed with people hoping to earn the title of having the ugliest sweater on earth! It was also a going away party for Tomeka and Brandon Pitts. It was sad to think of our dear friends leaving, but I am sure they will have a great adventure ahead of them in Colorado. Brandon is in the Army and this should be his last duty assignment before retiring. Hopefully they will come back and settle in eastern North Carolina. We would love to have them back here with us.
Back to the party, the DJ had the place rocking and the karaoke machine was getting lots of use, some would say too much! No, it was a blast and we have some good voices at the Pit Stop! Bubba was wearing the ugliest and weirdest sweater you have ever seen, with lights and strategically placed candy canes. Bubba took the Grand Prize of $100 cash, and the title of ugliest sweater. I think his “stage” presence may have had something to do with it too. Joy made sure things ran smoothly, with plenty of food and a great atmosphere for this really fun time.
There will be many more fun events coming up at this biker friendly bar. Joy has some great ideas for the Pit Stop to bring in our biker brothers and sisters. There will be everything from poker runs to possibly an outside pavilion with live music! Joy rides and she loves us old dirty bikers! The Pit Stop will always be a place for bikers to pull in and have a cold one with a real laid back attitude.
