One poor soul who either didn’t know better or was just plain not housebroken wandered into the Haas Motor Museum asking the question of the evening of Thursday, November 8 — “Did you see Mark Lamaster’s review in the Morning News today?”
Perhaps the latter was due to the non-sweetheart review. But you wouldn’t have guessed it looking at Moto museum proprietor Bobby Haas in Moschino jacket with blonde Museum Director Stacey Mayfield.
One Harley Davidson fan sniffed that s/he thought his choice of Moschino branded jacket was odd.
In displaying the dazzling collection of vintage and 21st century bikes, some were parked on mirrors for an “under the hood view.” On the walls in the Sculpture Gallery were collections of metal masks. From the Sidecar Alcove with its wheels made for two to the Biker Boy Shop’s assortment of collectibles and clothes, there was something for everyone.
While there were many spots for photos, the “Through The Wall” setup along the History Hall in the Sculpture Center proved to be the most popular.
But not all was biker talk. As husband Jeff Kearney checked out the rows of motorcycles, wife Olivia Kearney told of a NPR report — “Tracing Roosevelt’s Path Down the ‘River of Doubt’” — on how President Teddy Roosevelt had face the challenges of exploring the Amazon in 1914.
In the crowd of 176 supporting The Family Place were ReuNight Co-Chairs Joyce Goss and Kenny Goss, Emily Maduro with Joe Wielebinski, Jan Miller and Jeff Rich, Mehrdad Moayedi, Bill Hutchinson, Muffin Lemak, Paige Westcott, Carol Seay, Tina Peterson, Allie Beth Allman, Jonika Nix and Linda and Steve Ivy plus a number of solo gals like Kristen Sanger, Lisa Singleton, Jessica Nowitzki and Lynn McBee, whose husband, Allan McBee, was in Oklahoma.
The Family Place’s CEO Paige Flink was still all smiles about Sunday’s check presentation by Village of Giving. Paige took home a check of $25,000.
