The 70th Anniversary Hollister Independence Rally

On June 11, 2017, in Uncategorized, by Charisse

Hello rally fans. It’s hard to believe that the 70th anniversary Hollister Independence Rally is only 19 days away. This will be rally number 22 for me as owner of Johnny’s and I swear it gets here faster every year. As always I have been blessed with a wonderful crew to help keep your bellies […]

My 22nd Johnny’s Saint Patrick’s Day Celebration

My how time flies. In some ways it’s hard to believe that I am preparing for my 22nd Johnny’s Saint Patrick’s Day celebration. In other ways it’s holy crap, here we go again!

I just checked out the Hollister Independence Rally 2016 line up and it is looking great. The forty page flip-book program that the folks at Roadshows put together is loaded with details for every day of the rally.
