Biker Wedding with Kangaroo Best Man


Any wedding at the Buffalo Chip is guaranteed not to be your usual stuffy traditional affair, but Midget Bowling enforcer Lady Victoria kicked things up a notch in 2009 when her wedding featured a marsupial as the best man. After Jack escorted her up the aisle, he was rewarded for his service with a BreathSavers mint.

 Big Woody’s Panty Party

One hundred eighty-two bikers donned their most dashing pair of drawers and their brightest smiles on Aug. 5, 2015 to be part of one of the rally’s most outrageous world-record-breaking attempts – the most people in one place wearing only underwear! While the group did not manage to break the record, they did manage to have one hell of a time.

Pee-wee Herman’s “Tequila Dance” on the Wolfman Jack Stage


When Paul Reubens, better known as Pee-wee Herman, came to the Buffalo Chip in 2010, nobody was really sure what to expect other than the unexpected. Consequently, when he zip-lined onto the stage and proceeded to recreate the classic  “Tequila dance” scene from his film “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” alongside the 2010 Miss Buffalo Chip contestants, the expectations that something outrageous was going to happen were met.
