Before moving to New York, Phoenix was my home. Downtown especially. I got to know so many creatives and become part of the downtown scene. This event was in it's second annual run, and I wasn't about to miss it. The first year was just amazing, and the second definitely met if not exceeded expectations.
Doug Penick, a good friend of mine, and whose home my tiny little guest house resided behind, put together the Pinewood Classic. Long gone are the days of downhill derby races meant only for boy scouts or kids. The Pinewood Classic was made for adults. With gourmet hot dogs from Short Leash to lots and lots of Beer from Four Peaks Brewery, this event is in a league of its own.
Let's not forget about my people, best buds, that made it awesome
