So, it's a horse trailer-turned-bar...and it is finally starting to look like one. But while bartending, it would be nice if we could actually see the drinks we were making, right? Then came the realization--how the heck are we going to add lights inside this thing, not to mention, kegerators, fridges, plugs for espresso machines and most importantly iPhone jacks? This was a tough one. We needed The Whiskey Chaser to be able to power up during evening ev...

Yet another challenge--this time in the form of a bar top! On a Saturday afternoon after a lazy brunch, Tory and I spent the day antiquing but with purpose (I know...that doesn't sound rough at all...but it's coming). We were hunting for some vintage items to add a personal touch to The Whiskey Chaser. While walking through the isles at Urban Ore (a local salvage yard) and seeing many cool things but nothing we needed, we happened to almost trip ove...

Our baby got a facelift and she is looking so fresh and so clean! But the decision didn't come easily (at least for one of us). I'll get to this juicy story in a minute, because I need to backtrack a bit.

After 4 weekends spent driving the trailer back and forth to our welder in Benicia, CA, we exulted and praised the heavens once all of the metal work had been completed! Hanging with our welder, Austin, was a pleasure (especially during a welcome Chick-F...

Metalworking is well underway! Our welder Austin has been slicing away, reducing the unnecessary weight and making room for all-things-bar! The floor is gone, a bar window has been created, the horse feed shelf has long since been carved out and carried away, and all of the previously rusty areas have been patched. We were left with a beaut' of an empty shell, and one big hold-up. We needed a door! 

We came into this with a game plan and measurements...

Another challenge, but we are finally moving along! One step closer to turning this rusty beast into a beautiful bar. Who knew it would be so difficult to find someone to help with body work on an old horse trailer! We will be taking on the restoration and renovation ourselves, but before we get started, we need some help. Welding is not our forte!  

We have spent the past several weeks calling every body shop in town. Nope--none would work...

The Whiskey Chaser on its first voyage home. Rusted, old and full of charm--this diamond in the rough is destined for a new life.


Hailing from beyond Tracy, California, rusting away in the sun and blistering heat, this old trailer just earned itself a new shot at life! Today was the day we made the decision to start this new journey. Borrowing our friend's overly embellished throaty Dodge Ram, we rumbled down the freeway, excited to bring our new baby ho...
