28th Annual Performance Racing Industry Show, Indianapolis, IN, / December 2016

A lot happens after the show closes each day. Many connections are made and deals struck in the casual setting of the bars and restaurants near the convention center. We stayed closest to a TGIFriday's so that's where we went at the end of each day, and by the looks of it so did many others who were attending the show. It is a great time just hanging out and having food and drinks with industry friends.

PRI After Hours
Spending some quality time with our friends from AED Performance.
The staff at TGIFriday's has told me on many occasions that the people who come in with the trade show are among the nicest they get all year. "They know what they want, they order a burger and a beer, they're friendly and they tip great."
Our friends from Baldwin Racing Engines.

Hanging with some roundy-round guys. They were a lot of fun!

So these kids were working the concession line at the food court, and they were having so much fun with everyone I just had to snap a shot of them. What a nice group they were.
