Column: Artomobilia among Carmel’s best events of the year
Commentary by Jason Peek
Well, there are a few simple things in life that makes ol’ Hogjawz happy, and Artomobilla has three of them: cars, beer and barbeque!
This year, as always, was awesome and the crowd was loving it. This year the Main Street Barber Shop got the muscle cars in front of it and I was like a young kid at Christmas and yet a depressed middle-aged man that can’t afford the beauty of these cars.
I think this is the coolest event we do in The Carmel Arts & Design District. It’s like a big testosterone party with all the fixin’s and even a few local celebs.
My personal fav, the GTO, stared at me all day like it wanted me to adopt it, but the guy who owned it thought differently.
I even offered to trade him the barber shop so I could go rogue in that car and just drive around Carmel waving to ya’ll. I had two “Gimmy 2 Utah” sliders from Big Boss BBQ, a local pig farm raising 35,000 hogs a year (look them up at bigbossbbq.com), and it was delicious with baked beans and smoked bacon. We also had some new customers come in that had not been to a real barber shop in years and thought that not just the shop, but the whole town was cool.
Old Town Tavern was selling cold beer to a lot of thirsty people.
Keep it up Carmel! I’m all in on this event!
