A New Adventure: The Rice Bowl

Fellow enthusiasts:

Before the blog, before the social media, Mayday Garage’s origins have been that of hosting underground events in the Houston area. For the past 12 years the roots of Mayday have pushed to keep the spirit of the street vibrant, from streets to garages to convention centers, the preservation of tuning culture has always been Mayday’s primary objective. In 2015, we will embark on one of our most exciting and dynamic events to date, The Rice Bowl. Join us as we host a new type of modified vehicle exhibition and partner with Japanese culture convention Anime Matsuri in bringing you a new experience Easter Weekend 2015 at George R. Brown convention center.

As a modified car exhibition that will celebrate Japanese & European street style within Anime Matsuri, The Rice Bowl is not a competition platform. It is an exhibition party with live acts, industry guests and celebration of tuning culture.

Join us April 4 as we make 2015 the year of rice!

Automotive participation details to be unveiled 02/01/15.

Sexy NSX.

Meet Christian’s NA1 Acura NSX. He goes through wheels like people go through socks. As he awaits tires for his TE37 SL’s, he still has his holy grail Regamaster EVO’s on the fronts. Even though they’re mismatching, we find it to have some cool Japanese character that way.

Coffee and Rice.

A lot of the local Houston guys know that we host “Ricer Wednesdays” at The Ricebox Food Truck on Westheimer road across the street from The Poison Girl. It’s a weekly get together of cars on the busy streets of Houston at night. Sometimes parking is a workout and the streets themselves can be challenging to navigate through if you’ve never been. This is what separates the hardcore guys from everyone else, and it’s nice to see new faces every week.

What a lot of people don’t know is that we have another day of the week that we all meet up. Sundays at Catalina Coffee on Washington Avenue. Sunday is the one day of the week when all of the Mayday guys are off and if the weather is nice, we will all meet up in the morning on the very unbusy street of Washington Avenue. Some years back, this same street was one of the worst streets to drive down, but about 2.5 years ago, the city of Houston completely repaved the road, and it’s pretty damn flat. When you get all of these ingredients mixed into a bowl of rice, you have a recipe for what we call Coffee & Rice. So if you’re local, like great coffee/cortados/lattes and are free Sunday mornings, you should join us as many others have.
