It’s July, so it’s time to lock in your extracurricular plans with SVTP at Mustang Week 2014. You know we can’t just leave anything stock, so we are ready to bolt on a little more fun with some activities before, during, and after the regularly scheduled events. So, keep reading, and plan your schedule. We hope to see you at some or all of these events:

Welcome to Mustang Week Party
For the second year SVTP will be hosting a welcome to Mustang Week at Myrtle Beach Party. Our inaugural Welcome Party was such a hit that we just had to do it again. If you’re in town early for Mustang Week this party is a great opportunity to get out and meet other SVTP members.
We will be meeting at Spanky’s Pub House, a favorite spot of local’s. Spanky’s is a great little restaurant/pub with excellent food. I particularly like the burgers and shrimp tacos. In fact, I’ve had the chef create a special pulled pork/mac & cheese egg roll for the SVTP party.
Spanky’s has plenty of parking and the lot is situated in such a way you can easily keep an eye on your car from the patio. We’re told there will also be an appearance by the Blu Energy Girls. You’ll know you have the right place when you see the SVTP banner out front!
We’ve arranged the following food and drink specials (which Spanky’s tells us are good all week if you mention you’re a member of SVTP):
• $2.50 Yuengling Drafts, $3.50 Aluminum Pints (Bud, Bud Lite, Miller Lite, Coors Lite, Michelob Ultra) $4.00 Jim Beam Pours, $3.00 New South (Local Myrtle Beach Beer) $3.50 Dale’s Pale Ale
• $6.00 Quarter-Pound Burger Basket with Fries
• $5.00 Spanky’s Burger or Pulled Pork Sliders, Pulled Pork/Mac&Cheese Eggrolls, Bakery Made Pretzels, Blue Cheese Pub Chips, or Pizza Eggrolls
Location: Spanky’s Pub House
Time: 6:00 p.m.

Pizza at the Cruise-In
This is our first time organizing a companion event to the annual Mustang Week Cruise-In at The Palace Theater. Toward the end of the MW Cruise-In the SVTP crew will be posted up at Mellow Mushroom, which is just a short walk—directly across 21st Ave—from The Palace Theater.
This event is open to all SVTP members, regardless of their vehicle. We want to include as many of our great forum members as possible. Mellow Mushroom is home of the best pizza in Myrtle Beach, and has a selection of 30 beers on draft. SVTP will be providing pizza and wings, so stop by for some free food and a cold beer.
Meeting Place: Mellow Mushroom
Event Time: 1:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m.

It simply wouldn’t be Mustang Week without the annual SVTPerformance Burnout Contest. This is our seventh year hosting the event and it definitely gets bigger and more exciting every year. If you’re unfamiliar with how awesome the SVTP Burnout Contest is, check out our coverage of the 2013 edition of the event: Mustang Week 2013 : SVTPerformance.com/Discount Tire Direct Burnout Competition.
Needless to say, this is probably the wildest spectacle you’ll see during all of Mustang Week. There’s no other event at Mustang Week that rewards winner with a free set of tires for letting it all hang out and showing off for the crowd. The crowd determines the winner; so the more you can do to rile them up the better. Creativity is highly recommended. All participants receive a gift bag and the contest is open to all Ford vehicles.
Location: Myrtle Beach Speedway
Time: 7:30-8:00 p.m.

SVTPerformance/Blow-By Racing Coyote Cruise
This is Blow-By Racing and SVTP’s third year organizing the increasingly popular Mustang Week Coyote cruise. The 2013 event featured 53 cars—up from 16 in 2012—and a great group of Mustang fans. We’re hoping to see double the number of cars participating this year. The cruise is open to all Coyote and Roadrunner 5.0-powered vehicles.
Our route will take us on some great back roads that most never see. We will eventually find our way to the SVTP Cruise-In at Longbeards Bar and Grill were there will be food and drink specials. I suggest you try the boar wings and fried pickles, both of which are awesome. The burgers are great as well, and a half-pound Angus burger with fries will only be $5.
Meeting Place: Bass Pro-Shop Parking Lot Near the Blow-By Racing Trailer
Meeting Time: Please be at the meeting location by 12:30pm
Ending Point: The cruise will conclude at Longbeard’s Bar and Grill, a great restaurant just across the Intracoastal Waterway from Myrtle Beach, where we will enjoy Happy Hour specials on food and drinks.

The SVTPerformance Cruise-In
For 2014 we’ve decided to build on our experiences from hosting other Mustang Week events and put together our first SVTPerformance Cruise-In. We will be meeting at Longbeards Bar and Grill just across the waterway from Myrtle Beach. Longbeards is the final stop on the 4th Annual SVTP/Blow-By Racing Coyote Cruise, so you can expect over 5.0 Coyote/Roadrunner powered rides to show up at some point.
We chose Longbeards because of their unique menu, including quail & grits, buffalo steaks, and elk burgers. It also has extra cold beer, and a large outdoor seating area. If aforementioned menu is a bit extreme for you they also have $5 half-pound Angus burgers with fries. There are lots of available parking areas, which are accessible to lowered cars. We look forward meeting lots of SVTP members, and hope to see many of you there.
Location: Longbeard’s Bar and Grill
Time: ~1:00- 4:30 p.m.

SVTPerformance Party Like a Rock Star Night
This is our fourth year hosting our annual SVTPerformance Party Like a Rock Star Night. Due to the resounding success of the 2013 party we are returning to The Deck at The House of Blues for Mustang Week 2014. The event is Friday night after the Mustang Week Car Show.
The Deck is an awesome spot is hangout, have a drink, and enjoy some great food. Speaking of food, SVTP is providing a small buffet for SVTP members attending the party. They have recently expanded their Craft Beer Lagoon and will have live music on the stage.
There’s no cover charge, plenty of parking, free food, and a great atmosphere. HOB is offering the following specials: $4 Margaritas, $6 Craft Draft Beers, and 4 for $20 16oz Coors Light Aluminum Bottle Buckets. I’m hoping to see a lot of SVTP members make it out and enjoy all that The House of Blues has to offer.
Location: The House of Blues Deck
Time: ~8:00 p.m.~
