Hogs & Heifers Saloon – Rally in the Alley
Las Vegas, NV – Friends and Family, we are disappointed to announce that we have had to cancel the OUTDOOR portion of this year’s planned Anniversary Party & Rally in the Alley event. We were not able to get our proposed street usage & parking plan for the event approved by the Downtown Grand, who owns Downtown 3rd Street.
With that said, we will not be deterred from having a fabulous weekend celebrating our 16th year in Las Vegas…INDOORS! In our first two years of business our Anniversary Party and the weekend of festivities all took place inside the bar itself, and this year we will be winding back the clock and kickin’ it… a little more old school than expected…but kicking it back Hogs Style nonetheless! We have secured motorcycle parking along Ogden Avenue North of 3rd Street, renting the metered spaces from the City of Las Vegas, as we have done for most of our parties since 2019 so as to be able to provide additional motorcycle parking for our guests.
We invite you to join us Thursday night when we celebrate 16 years of Hogs & Heifers Saloon Las Vegas! Our doors will be open all day and all are welcome! To add to the celebration we will be hosting door prize giveaways from 8PM until 2AM. Everyone that walks in beginning at 8PM will receive a raffle ticket and winning numbers will be announced every half-hour beginning at 8:30PM, many of them generously donated by our vendors despite not being able to set up their booth spaces on Downtown 3rd.
Also happening Thursday will be the Motobucks Motorcycle Auction. We will be showcasing a 2000 Harley-Davidson Sportster that was donated to the Paralyzed Veterans of America Nevada Chapter. It has been serviced and inspected by our friends at Red Rock Harley-Davidson and will be auctioned to the highest bidder on http://www.motobucks.com. The auction will end Thursday night at 6PM and we have the pleasure of announcing the winner at 7PM to launch our Anniversary party. Motobucks will be giving all proceeds to the Paralyzed Veterans of America.
Two of our three planned Bike Shows will still be taking place in our designated motorcycle parking directly in front of Hogs & Heifers. Friday night will be the Ricky Bongos Chopper Show that begins at 6PM and ends at 10PM. Saturday will be the Main Street Moto Vintage Motorcycle Bike Show that will ride in at 1pm, and these cool vintage bikes will stay until about 4pm.
Over the course of the last three years of endless challenges, countless customers have asked how they can help us during such difficult times and we have always said, “just keep coming in the door and sending your friends our way”. This coming weekend we need you to do that more than ever BOTH day AND night. We always increase our staff for this event annually, with many previous employees who return year after year to join us, and this year is no exception, as we were expecting to finally have a party on our street again. Several of our 2021 RITA staff members have taken time off from other employment and/or have traveled to join us this weekend. Our payroll is increased and there is a much larger number of bartenders and bar backs to share in the tip pool. Our team is committed to throwing a great party no matter what and our hope for them is that they have a great time and still do as well as FINANCIALLY possible, given the sudden limitations that will have a direct adverse impact on their ability to do so.
Right now, as we face yet another daunting challenge we are asking that everyone focus all of their positive energy our way and COME DOWN TO JOIN US IN DROVES while we focus all of our positive energy along with our hearts and souls into throwing an incredible 3-day party! We have been blessed by the love and support from our community and our friends and customers near and far and we need you now more than ever before.
We have always risen to every challenge presented to us and through our unique ability to come together quickly and adapt, we have always found a way to survive. Our indomitable spirit drives our joyous revelry and allows us to stand tall and shine no matter the direction the wind blows or the dust cloud it brings with it.
Zee, Sal, Alyssa, Heather, and Lindsey are all back behind this stick with us this week and we have lots of new employees we can’t wait for you to meet! Tiffany and Suzi put together a great fucking setlist of music for us to rock out to and no matter what, we are excited for this weekend and looking forward to seeing old friends, making new ones, and having an amazing time!
Thank You for your continued love and support, we couldn’t make it through this without you!
Michelle Dell & The Hogs Team
