I announced the Boondock Saints Bike Reveal Charity Event this month. The event welcomed some great fans and celebrity guests that attended to watch the revealing of writer/director Troy Duffy’s Boondock Saints brand new custom built motorcycle by LA Speed Shop. Hosted at Mat Joseph’s Melrose Avenue art venue “Tuff Sissy & Co.” and the neighboring “Freak Chic Tattoo“, this event was to benefit the local charity, the Los Angeles Food Bank, which does an outreach across the United States to help feed the hungry.
The celebrity guests that attended included actress Julie Benz and actors Clifton Collins Jr., Daniel DeSanto, David Della Rocco and Brian Mahoney, as well as additional celebs, actors Jack Rubio, Jonathan Schaech, Paul J Alessi, Sam Macaroni and actress Amie Barsky.
The building of the Boondock Saints bike took LA Speed Shop’s owner, Chris Richardson and his crew, a year to complete. Fans have been able to watch it’s progress through a couple of online videos.
In addition to the bike reveal, Boondock Saints movie memorabilia was signed by Troy Duffy and some of the attending cast members to be raffle off with proceeds going to support the LA Food Bank.
Here are some great photos from the night…
Inked Magazine served as media partner of the October 13 event, where guests enjoyed a hosted bar courtesy of Sailor Jerry Rum, as well as the hospitality of Sailor Jerry’s fully-outfitted Airstream trailer, which was parked in front of the venue. DJ Ten Foot Rabbit entertained the crowd with intricate sound maneuvers like bits of the movies’ dialogue overlapping and intertwined in the evening’s playlist.
O.N.E. Coconut Water was also on-site, as well as Magnolia Bakery cupcakes, and delightfully devoured hors d’oeuvres from soon-to-open Marcona, scheduled to open late-October, directly across Melrose Avenue from Tuff Sissy & Co./Freak Chic Tattoo. Marcona’s menu for the evening included sample bites of their Spiced Spanish Tuna, Gyros Espana, and Burlington Red Onion sandwiches, as well as their Ossi de Morti (almond cookies), Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies, and Spiced Marconas (signature bar nut mix).
