BIKE DAY AT LEGION POST 359 by Miserable George

August 6, 2022 was a HOT one…(again), but all that HEAT didn’t seem to bother the banner crowd that showed up at American Legion Post 359’s monthly BIKE DAY, at the clubhouse just north of Pinto’s on US#1 in Brevard County, Florida!!!! 

Those big fans out on the rear deck area were doin’ their job, for sure!!!  The live band, Loaded Dice, was crankin’ out some mean sounds, and it wasn’t long before the dance area was alive with folks shuffling about, despite the heat..!!!

The two full service bars were going…non stop…!!! The large parking area was just short of FULL with scooters, and as always, several local clubs were represented. The brand new exterior restrooms are finished too…AC…the whole deal..!! Hungry….??? Well, they took care of THAT too…dogs and burgers with all the trimmings…always GOOD and at a good price too. PLUS, there was a 50/50….just about everything to keep ya hopping all afternoon…!!!

The folks at 359 always make sure that YOU have a good time on Bike Day…the first Saturday of the month.

Hey, thank a Vet today, and GOD BLESS AMERICA…!!!

BIKE DAY AT 359 July 2, 2022 by Miserable George

Well, ValGal was under the weather this week-end, so the old man(me) covered Legion 359 Bike Day. I got there a bit early, so the crowd wasn’t too large as yet, also, the weather wasn’t exactly cooperating, but as time passed, they started rolling in. The live band….Sunrise Whiskey Band started playing, and that kinda got the crowd to stirring a bit!!! I had missed lunch, so, I indulged in the tasty food they had available. By now, the place was just about filled up, and, the weather was holding its own…good!!! I’d like to mention the new Restrooms outside that are now accessible, and 359 now has a membership drive in full swing. Folks, remember, the first Saturday of the month is BIKE DAY at Legion Post 359, on U.S.#1, just north of Pintos. Our thanks to 359 for jumping on our “bandwagon”, so, watch for their ad in future issues of Old School Biker Magazine. It’s THE place to be on the first Saturday…live music, two full service bars on the huge deck out back…lots of room for dancing…a place for FUN…!!! Hey, thank a VET today, and GOD BLESS AMERICA…!!!!

Bike Day at 359 by Miserable George

     It had been awhile since I attended Bike Day at 359, and as luck would have it, Dec. 4, 2021 was “weather perfect”…!!! I got there early to grab some lunch…very tasty indeed..!!! 

BIG DADDY was playing, so of course, the place filled up…FAST!!! Met a bunch of old friends…(as always), plus, two NEW ones!!! Lots of progress on the new rest room facility…that will be a BIG help for the outside crowd. One thing that was a first for me…they sold out of 50/50 tickets…!!

Never saw THAT before…$660 total…winner got $330…$100 of which was donated back!!! Folks, I believe this was one of the largest crowds I’ve ever seen at 359, and, Big Daddy had a bunch of them shaking it up out there on the dance floor.  I love that band!!!!!

Hey…thank a Vet today, ride safe, and GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!

POST 359…BIKE DAY 10/2/21 by Miserable George

     This must be the “nice weather time” in Brevard County, because Bike Day on Oct. 2, 2021 at Post 359 was perfect. Nice crowd out back on the pavilion, one HOT band…KARALYN & the Dawn Patrol, plenty of super food, (I had a very tasty lunch) and 2 outside bars doing a GOOD business!! I don’t know where they come from, but those bar-maids were CAPTIVATING!!!  Every table in the place was occupied, plus standees. Oh yeah, I like the new fans too. Folks, if you haven’t as yet popped in there on the first Sat. of the month…do it next month…you’ll thank me. Hey, thank a VET today, and may GOD BLESS AMERICA…Ride safe…

POST 359 BIKE DAY AT THE TIKI by Miserable George

     Under very cloudy skies, I rolled in to Post 359 at my usual time, and had to really scrounge around for a parking spot…I tell ya folks…the place was JAMMED!!

The band, “Hypersona” was wailing away, folks were dancing, and several people told me…”Check out the chick with the purple hair”…so, I did, and you can see the rather pleasant results…!! The food area was crowded, as were the 2 bars…one at each end of the huge Tiki Patio Deck..!!

The rain held off till around 3:30, but then, we got dumped on!! It moved out about 45 minutes later. There was a drawing for a Booze Basket, and of course, the 50/50, of which a large portion was donated back to 359. Folks, it was a fabulous day among friends!! The membership drive is in full swing, so, think about THAT!!!

Thank a VET today, stand up for your country, and may GOD BLESS AMERICA..!!

Yeah, this old man is thankful to live in a country like the U.S.A….!!!

National Veterans Homeless Support by Miserable George

     It was when a group realized how sad the holiday season could actually be for homeless veterans, that the NVHS was formed. Events such as today’s gathering at American Legion Post #1, just north of Titusville, Fl., helped to raise some of the funds needed to provide for these veterans.  There was a Poker Run, which ended at Post#1, where there was hot food  waiting, plus live entertainment by the TMI (Twisted Minds Inc.) Band. Also on the agenda, were raffles and an auction, which featured some pretty valuable merchandise, plus a 50/50. From what I could see, the sizable crowd was really enjoying themselves, while providing for the homeless vets. Post #1 provides its guests with a huge pavilion, plus a bar and tables, both inside and out…all this plus beautiful weather accounted for the large crowd. Want a fun day…? Keep your eyes peeled for the next event at Post #1…tell ‘em Old School Biker Magazine sent ya…

UNITY RUN LEGION POST 359 by Miserable George

It was 41 COLD degrees when I left my place, and headed to Post 359 for the UNITY RIDE for Legion Boys & Girls. Fourteen other hardy souls had gathered there, and were ready to ride. MaryAnn led a prayer for safety, and they were off!! Post #1 was our first stop…for breakfast!!! Then it was on up north to the NSB and south Daytona area, where the group encountered an accident scene and were forced to turn back and seek a detour. Unfortunately, this didn’t work out too well, as the original group was now split up, and did not visit the last 2 planned stops. So, with the cold weather, an unplanned detour, and the scattering of the original group, a bunch headed back to the 359 headquarters where I encountered them later in the day.

I’d like to thank MaryAnn Baggaley and Brenda Pierce for their pictures and assistance…
