Competition Time: Blue Ribbon Beer Run - Bombshells Contest

This past Saturday was the Blue Ribbon Beer Run Bombshell Contest up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  In it's third year, it really is becoming a very popular car event in the city.  I love any excuse to get up to Milwaukee, so I was really excited to participate in this contest and check out the event.  I had heard about it after the event last year, so it's was on my reminder list for a year!

When I arrived on Friday, we had a quick check in and walk through to become familiar with the space - where we needed to be in the morning, what the stage looked like, etc.  I also took the time to take a quick peek at the cars that were already there.  I love great classic cars!  The Historic Pabst Brewery is a fantastic location itself, so much history!  I was born and raised in Milwaukee, and my dad's family has lived their all their lives.  We have a rich family history in Milwaukee and several family members worked for the breweries there.

Friday night was an early birthday dinner at Joey Gerard's Supper Club with my aunt (the perfect retro dinner) and then prepping for Saturday. 

Saturday morning, my aunt treated me to her famous french toast - which was just what I needed to start off the morning.  I finished getting ready and then headed over to the the Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery.

I had a little bit of time to walk around the event and check out the cars before we had to line up for the contest.  While wandering around, I ran into two gentlemen that were at the World of Wheels event back in February.  They recognized me from that contest, which was so nice.  I enjoyed getting to chat with them a bit and take a few more photos with their amazing cars!

There were 23 lovely ladies in this contest and it was fun to see some people I've met before and meet some new folks.  The contest was really well put together and it seemed like everyone really enjoyed themselves.   Each lady had her own bubbly personality and style - which really highlighted the diversity of the pinup community.

Thanks Jessica for the contest photo!

I didn't place, but it was a wonderful event - full of terrific people, awesome cars, and beautiful weather!  I highly recommend this car show if you are in the area next summer.
