Boondock Saints and The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day Writer/Director, Troy Duffy, will host a bevy of the movies' fans, friends, cast and crew, on Thursday, October 13, 2011, 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM, as he celebrates the reveal of his brand new, "LA Speed Shop" custom-built Boondock Saints-themed motorcycle. The event, officially named "Boondock Saints Bike Reveal Benefitting Los Angeles Regional Foodbank/Feeding America", will be housed in Mat Joseph's Melrose Avenue art venue "Tuff Sissy & Co." and his neighboring "Freak Chic Tattoo, and will benefit said local charity: www.lafoodbank.org.
Fans of Boondock Saints franchise have been following LA Speed Shop's progress on-line, as owner Chris Richardson and his crew constructed Mr. Troy Duffy's bike. This event will serve as the official reveal of the completed machine, as well as a fan meet and greet for a portion of the movie franchise's more than 4.5 million fans. The event will also feature a Boondock Saints movie memorabilia auction and raffle, and a portion of the sales proceeds will benefit Los Angeles Regional Foodbank.
Guests at the October 13 event will enjoy a hosted rum bar courtesy of Sailor Jerry; complimentary O.N.E. Coconut Water; and snacks from soon-to-open Marcona Restaurant, scheduled to open mid-October, directly across Melrose Avenue from Tuff Sissy & Co./Freak Chic Tattoo. Inked Magazine has joined the event as a media partner, and due to the tattoo-heavy presence featured in Boondock Saints movies, Freak Chic Tattoo will be giving a special discount on limited-edition, hand-drawn Boondock Saints-themed tattoos, in the days leading up to the October 13 event's start. Recipients of these exclusive tattoos will be automatically entered into the event's raffle.
"We're thrilled that Melrose Avenue mainstays like Freak Chic Tattoo and Tuff Sissy & Co. will be opening up their doors to our loyal fan base, cast and crew, for this charity event. I support the work of the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank, and as excited as I am to see the fans' reaction to my Boondock Saints -themed LA Speed Shop bike, I'm equally as excited to see so many businesses and friends coming together to support this very worthy cause," says Mr. Troy Duffy.
