Extreme times call for extreme entertainments, and so as the planet Earth entered the summer of 2014, the citizens of Costa Mesa have the opportunity to spend a Saturday at… the Motorcycle Demolition Derby! Fair warning: This is nowhere near as bloodthirsty as the sicker among you (and possibly us) might have thought. Instead of full-on Mad Max-ian apocalyptic action, it’s dudes on dirtbikes with three balloons each, and the object is to pop the balloons. So more like motorcycle flag football, in a way—which would also be an awesome event. That said, if you can’t get a hearty good time out of a bunch of dudes on dirtbikes smacking at each other with clubs as they go skidding around in the muck, then why do you even bother leaving the house?
