For a moment there I thought I was in an episode of the Twilight Zone. What the fuck was this? Hogs and Heifers was not allowed to swear during their day time business hours at this year's Laughlin River Run?
If y'all have ever spent time at Hogs, you know this is next to impossible. The bar is built on the foundation of going against the grain and playing by their own rules. Included in these rules is the freedom to say whatever the fuck they want, whenever the fuck they want. This is part of what makes H&H one of the best dive bars in the world. If you don't like what they say and how they say it, don't invite Hogs to your next rally. And also don't visit the saloon in Vegas. In their house, the Hogs family definitely doesn't give a shit if you take offense to the words fuck, pussy, or cock sucker. This year's rally in Laughlin was a fuckin' blast, but I wouldn't blame the owner Michelle for not wanting to bring her crew back next year. Who the fuck likes to be censored? The last time I checked, freedom of speech was still a guaranteed right in this country.
I'm proud to say the bartenders and rest of the staff at Hogs passed their censorship test. Despite not being able to perform the way they usually do, the crew still brought the house down in Laughlin. With that, I bring you highlights from the last day of the rally.
See you next year?
Fuck you, I still drink at Hogs!

My name is Cameron Smith, welcome to my studio. I specialize in portrait photography, event coverage, and some say I have a thing for dive bars and cocktails.. Based in Atlanta with frequent trips to Las Vegas and Portland Oregon, I love to travel. Design and writing skills are some of the extra services I can bust out with my camera. From blogs to photo books, and below average art that consists mostly of ink drawings, I'm considered by my Mom to be an artist - whatever my Mom says goes! I'm also lucky enough to be the in-house photographer with Hogs & Heifers Saloon in Las Vegas, I've taken pictures of some wild shit! When not taking pictures of said crazy things, or planning a wedding celebration on my future ranch, you can find me in my garden with my wife and pets.
Living the green life in East Atlanta for now with big farm dreams on the horizon!
