    Kick-off your Memorial Day weekend by joining our Sergeant at Arms and Road Captain, Joe Miceli on this patriotic-themed lunch ride to Mission BBQ in Deptford, NJ.  The founders of Mission BBQ believe there is nothing more American than BBQ. And nobody more American than the brave men and women who have sworn to protect and serve our communities and our country. Mission BBQ does what they do for the love of our soldiers, firefighters, police officers, first responders—all our loved ones in service.  We'll enjoy their delicious BBQ in their patriotic dining room filled with tributes to those who’ve made our country great. We might even catch their daily lunchtime salute to the Stars and Stripes.

    Following our BBQ lunch we'll sweeten the deal by making a stop at Bruster's Ice Cream  for some farm-fresh ice cream dessert.  


    Return home mid-afternoon for a rest and then rejoin Joe Miceli at Shoreline Harley Davidson for a short ride to the Great Auditorium in Ocean Grove for a free patriotic concert. The Atlantic Wind Ensemble, featuring JSHOG's very own Phil Bull in the trumpet section, will perform a rousing recital of popular patriotic tunes, American classics and a special salute to our Armed Forces.  Kick stands up at Shoreline H-D at 7:00 PM sharp for the 8:00 concert.

    I hope you can join us for this ride and free concert. Feel free to join us for one or both rides.  It will be a great way to kick off the Memorial Day weekend.
