You may be better off to visit once without them and then you can judge for yourself based on the adult humor on the walls.

I am saying probably not. I don't know that I have ever seen a kid there.

Default You be the judge ..

Loony bin is an awsome local staple . Some of the best bar food around and as far as a dive bar goes very clean and well maintained. That being said although I have seen children in there before it might be best to go there without them and judge for yourself . The writing is literally on the wall as to why .

Kids are there rather frequently, but the "wall art" is a bit crude. Depends on what kinds of conversations you've had with your kids about cuss words as to whether it's appropriate for YOUR kids to be there with you.
If I had kids, I wouldn't bring them there. They'll face that well enough in school.

The adults act like kids; embarrassing to see the peel-out tire marks (from about three different cars) from the front of the restaurant to about 30 yards down the road.

Its looks like crap and is immature. The owners should try to make sure their patrons dont ruin it for them and bring on unwanted problems from neighbors or the authorities. Id bet the people that did it left the place quite drunk.

Thank God some Adults act like kids , as for the quite drunk part , the staff there is very aware of everyone & how much they have had to drink. It is a biker bar & that is the clientele that they bring , I for 1 love the place, It probably is not for actual kids especially at nite

The purpose of my post was to draw attention to the reckless manner in which the patrons are leaving the establishment. There is no need to lay down thirty or so yards of black skid marks that stay there for weeks, or until they do it again.

It reflects on the bar and it's owners; I look at it as an eyesore and I have judged the clientele and owners.

You can have your opinion, which I respect, but it is my opinion that this behavior is childish and will one day lead to an accident.

It's a biker bar, that kind of stuff is to be expected, and I'm pretty sure 90% of their clientele likes burnouts and bikes. I'm sure it's not a place for people easily offended to hang out.

Agreed. But when the 30 yards of burnout is on a public street, I am offended.

And you state that because they are bikers, I should expect reckless behavior from them? Should I expect any other type of behavior from any other groups?

Default Go kart track next door...

How about a Wed night burnout there?

Perhaps a drunken race on Harleys? Twenty-five laps, if you can. I believe it's private land. 1st Prize=All medical expenses paid, and a beer. I'd pay good money to see that...

God, I love parts of America!

Id love that. Count me in.

Im not a party poop-er. Just believe in respecting public property; ie: the Daniel Webster Hwy. and the traveling public.

I'm serious.

Can you imagine Harleys on a go kart track?

I think a TV series?

Create personality interest like on Storage Wars.

This would be better than the circus barrel riders of old...No?

You might be on to something. According to the Laconia Daily Sun, people find Bike Week to be boring, so theyve decided to add hill climbing and stunt jumping. Perhaps your ideas will fall on the right ears.... Lol

Bike week has always had hill climbs over at Gunstock...did they stop this for awhile? I see the "Tower St" referrence so maybe there'll be one right in the Wiers?

Hillcountry....

The Hill Climb was moved to Canaan NH a few years ago but it is back at Gunstock now. The Hillclimb BruinsFan mentioned is going to take place on Tower Hill and involve vintage bikes.

Not to paint all bikers with the same brush but they seem to think they own the town for that week. I use to be a biker back when it was only a weekend celebration. We were pretty arrogant youts back in the day and I was one of the calm ones.
