Next month, a two-day celebration is planned to honor the memory of Gary Lee Bomar.

Bomar, of course, was the the beloved owner Gary Lee's Motor Pub and Grub, who passed away last October as a result of injuries he sustained while vacationing in Mexico.

The loss was Gary Lee was devastating. It's hard to believe that it's been almost a year since he's been gone. Seems just like yesterday, in fact, that hundreds of folks gathered in front of his bar in the Baker neighborhood to pay their respects and see him off as he made one last trek down South Broadway.

On Friday, Sept. 16 and Saturday, Sept. 17, the scene will have another chance to pay tribute to the cherished member of the Denver scene. A half dozen bands, including Pretty Mouth, Trade-ins, Royal Aces, Gravity Tapes, Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene and the Nuns of Brixton, are set to perform over the course of two nights.

There will also be a pin-up fashion show, a pompadour and pin-up hair contest, along with a live auction and silent auction, both of which will benefit the Max Fund, as a nod to Gary Lee's love for his longtime companion, Clarence.
