Saddled Up Saloon was a night to remember! Tim Virgin and I hosted a Halloween contest there and it was packed!
We gave away 1,500 in prizes and the winner by crowd applause went to a GI Joe charter recreation. I do have to say when i went home that night my hands had green paint on them and it took me a minute to figure out why, haha! Though the crowd cheered most for GI Joe, my favorite of the night would have to be The Red Hot Chili Peppers Rolling Stone recreation! The pictures say it all!
