October 18-20 Biketoberfest at the Hideaway Grill and Tap Haus
Time flies when you’re having fun! Mark Bradshaw’s Hideaway Grille in Cave Creek will celebrate its 15-year anniversary with Biketoberfest Oct. 18 through Oct. 20. Day rides, live music, contests and a silent auction are just a few of the festivities that will take place at both Bradshaw’s Hideaway Grill, and his other local hangout, the Cave Creek Tap Haus.
A welcome stop during Arizona Bike Week, the Hideaway, located at 6746 E. Cave Creek Rd. in Cave Creek, is an established hub for local bikers and those just passing through. Known as Arizona’s favorite Biker Bar, it plays host to custom bike builders, motorcycle celebrities and enthusiasts. Its longevity is a testament to its owner’s entrepreneurial spirit.
Since 1998, Bradshaw has evolved his hole-in-the-wall hangout into a national biker destination. Its name has appeared in several notable motorcycle magazines, including Easy Rider, American Bagger and Biker.
A decade after founding the Hideaway, Bradshaw teamed up with Jim and Lisa O’ Toole to establish the Cave Creek Tap Haus next door at 6900 E. Cave Creek Rd. With over 50 microbrews and domestic beers on tap, it boasts the largest array of locally brewed beers. The 8,000-square-foot venue is more than accommodating. It is the perfect counterpart to the Hideaway Grill and caters to a more diverse crowd. The extensive menu includes more than the usual burgers and fries, with seafood dishes, salads, pastas, and even a kids’ meal section, the Tap Haus delivers on all fronts.
The Tap Haus will host a dart contest in the beer garden, as well as a Bikini Bike Wash. The final day of Biketoberfest begins with the Buddy Stubbs Ride. A silent auction at the Tap Haus, as well as a “Burn Out” contest will round out Sunday’s events. Vendors and live music will be a feature throughout the weekend.
Biketoberfest runs Oct. 18-20 with nonstop entertainment, beginning with a day ride at noon on Friday. The route ends at the Tap Haus for an Arizona Bike Builders Dinner, followed by a Metal King concert at 9 p.m.
