American Chopper Is Filming With TailgateJoe

by Joe on December 14, 2009

American Chopper Episode To Be Filmed at TailgateJoe.com New York Jets Tailgate Party!

Last Friday I was up in Newburgh, NY at the Orange County Choppers headquarters filming with Paul Sr., Jason, Jim, and the rest of the gang of the hit TLC series American Chopper. For those of you who were planning on hooking up with us down in Tampa before we bailed last minute, this was the reason.

Anyway, Paul and the gang are working on a really cool smoker/grill and being that most of the shop is Jet fans wanted to unveil it at a Jets home game. They heard about TailgateJoe and the great parties we throw for all the games so they contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if they could come out for the 12/20 game to show off what they have been working on and partake in one of our parties. OF course they will be filming this all for an episode to be aired some time in January/February.

This event perfectly coincides with a new announcement we will be making about something near and dear to my heart, The Leukemia And Lymphoma Society and another charity event I am organizing. As a Hodgkins Lymphoma survivor myself, this organization has special meaning, and having the exposure of a great show like American Chopper hopefully will really allow us to accomplish our goals of raising money and awareness for this terrible disease.

A lot of the guys from the shop will be making the trip, including Paul Sr himself. I spent a few hours up there at their shop where I got to see some of their great bikes and had the opportunity to chat with a bunch of the guys from the shop. My brother Nicky and I had a great time and were pretty surprised how friendly everyone was up there. Now I just need to figure out how to get the money to get one of those bikes!

So please everyone, come join us this Sunday 12/20 for the Atlanta Falcons game! There will be great food and fun as always, and some special guests as well!

Oh, and here’s a few pics from my visit there last week…

Nice job and good luck with the charity work. How do folks contribute to your Leukemia And Lymphoma Society?
