Shows how much of an uneducated idiot you must be. Not everyone is a redneck that love country music. Bet you wish you had what all those legends whom have stood on their stage. Money! There is great exercise in line dancing which is what I love to do in there for the last 20yrs. Take you yankee ;?;* back up north. People like you are the reason it closed. None off you like to have fun and complain about those who do. And no I am not a redneck and lived in horry county 40 yrs and bet your a very unhappy friendless idiot.

Beach Wagon was a great place not only for "rednecks" but my three children sang at the Talent Shows that were staged there and made great contacts in the music field. I hate that they are closing. The Wrangler Showdown helped many locals make a start in the music field.

If you didn't like it, no one forced you to go. There are a lot of other places that should be closed down like the girlie shows,etc. People can act like ladies and gentlemen wherever they go. The place does not dictate the behavior of people.

Hurry up, bring in the bulldozers. Itís time to build all those big Jersey style gambling casinos, so that all the prostitutes can get back to work and the illegals can start pedaling their drugs. Hopping John Rhodes can pass some new city ordinances making gambling legal in side Myrtle Beach.
Havenít the politicians, the Shamers of Commerce, the big time business tycoons like B&C and the loud mouth old northern retirees done a great job with the new family friendly Myrtle Beach. Just think we all said they were going to destroy the place. Now as long as those hurricanes do not come this summer everything is going to be just ok.

All I want to know is did the new Boardwalk go any where near The Beach Wagon and will the titty bars still be there when I visit next bike week? That is all that is important to me.

You may not have heard but there was a story way back many months ago, in which Hopping John Rhodes was being interview about his new campaign to try to get Horry County to somehow force the Gentlemanís clubs out there on hwy. 501 coming in to Myrtle Beach to relocate. Now the back story is that Mayor Rhodes wanted to put pressure on the clubs and then work a behind the scenes deal with all the club owners to bring them into Myrtle Beach where the town would help build an adult complex kind of like broad way at the beaches celebrity square only it would be all adult like clubs, tattoo parlors, etc. The idea was out of site out of mind as he claimed that the tourist should not see this kind of image as they are arriving to Myrtle Beach on 501.
In truth I would say that, that was his sales pitch to get the clubs to move into Myrtle Beach so that Rhodes could tax and control the clubs and could also use them to manipulate everyone. But when the story came out it brought up so much negative attention and it was said that by messing with the Gentlemanís clubs he could end up hurting the golf industry the same way that he hurt the business from the rallies so he backed off and not a word has been heard since.
This little man has never been shy about trying to push other towns and cities around, so it should be no surprise that he tries to tell Horry County what to do. He threatened to sue North Myrtle Beach and other towns over the rallies.
I would like to see these other towns sue him and his clown council for all that they have done.

Here are a few fun links about the gentlemenís clubs. It is funny how the media that are controlled by the elitist political friends of these flawed and failing Myrtle Beach fascist political regime do not report any of this and the few that did have now purged their web site of any old and politically embarrassing stories.

I just thought it was cool to read all the nasty anti tourist comments by all these selfish nasty old retiree from back in 2009 and see how many people (clearly the majority of posters) were against the insane selective tourism that these fools tried to impose on the town. Little man John Rhodes even threatened to sue the other towns for not going along with his insane unconstitutional takeover of the Beaches.
You do not hear from to many of them anymore. Now why is that?

I wonder how many of these nasty little old retirees are still alive or still living here. I bet a bunch of these nasty old people did not even live here year round. I bet they only stayed here in the winter and then went back to their Northern homes come the end of May or June. How selfish of them. All they had to do was get out of here and go back home a week or two earlier than originally planed. That is the kind of people that have destroyed what was once a great place to live.
I have to live with crazy wild tourist and the traffic all summer long which I do and for the most part complain very little. I always look forward to March April and the May Bike events and many other off season events along with all the post season events, but now a bunch of mean, nasty, grumpy selfish old people for home life is over and they are so miserable that they now want to destroy our way of life just so they can have an extra week or two of quiet and less traffic. The nasty old people should not even be out on the roads. I will make it my job for ever more to try and get old people off the roads, at least the ones that can no longer, hear, see, or turn their big fat heads.
So letís thank these old Greyhem Gremlin elitist for destroying the Grand Strand and our way of life and also for the extra un-employment, failed businesses, an extra increase in crime and guaranteed higher taxes.
It like living in Jersey now. So thanks a lot Grandma.

I was going to change my exhaust on one of my not exactly legal bikes, but why bother. It really doesnít matter anymore.
I no longer even bother trying to be nice to the nasty old Gremlins.
My neighbors are cool and I do not role in late at night so all is good with them.
The towns are what they are and we live in South Carolina where anyone can pretty much do whatever they like. No inspection, no emission and the cops are busy with all the non-drivers to mess with someone whom, for the most part is no problem.
It is the biggest holiday weeks or at least one of my favorite, so I will go out now and ride.
I will go out and ride as a free American on my American bike and I will appreciate what few freedoms I still have. I will not be taking any crap off any old Gremlins, so if you do not like me, my bike or my right to be on the roads, then you can kiss my you know what.
Please do not act like an American while trampling on my constitutional rights. Try to be like me and actually be an American who acts like an American and not some old Gremlin driving a Toyota or Mercedes, shopping at Wal-mart, voting to give our rights away year in and year out.
HAVE A NICE 4TH.

Your ignorance is showing.. time and time again. Another business closed and jobs lost. I guess when you collect welfare (like yourself) you don't worry about losing a job or a business. I see who the real DIRT BAG is !!!!

We banned the biker trash because they were disrespectful of our peace and quiet.
The Wagon should have moved to Murrells Inlet where biker trash has moved with new places like Big A** Sandwiches. Thats the real name of this place.
