Going back a few years now, Wednesdays saw not just Beyond meets (pre Menace days) but Wild Wednesdays as well. Held at the Grey Eagle Casino, literally hundreds of vehicles would gather each and every week and made for some truly enjoyable summer nights. They were the ultimate melting pots of automotive culture in our city, bringing together enthusiasts in everything from exotics to classic muscle cars to modified imports.
2015 was the last full season of the GE meets however, as a major roadwork project in the area required – and has now taken – the land that the parking lot once occupied. Following the end of GE’s hosting of the Wild Wednesdays a few attempts were made to create a successor but they always seemed to fail to gain traction. This year however it would seem that the formula has finally been figured out.
The Crowfoot A&W (80 Crowfoot Way NW) is now hosting the events and the turnouts have been steady. We’ve made them a part of our Wednesday night routines, stopping at the restaurant first for some dinner before then heading off to Beyond and/or Menace after. If you’re in the area on Wednesday evenings (and even if you’re not) I’d highly recommend stopping by for some food, the chance at door prizes, the 50/50 draw, and free root beer that everyone who registers receives.
We finally have our Wild Wednesdays back; let’s keep them going strong!
