Born to Be Mild 

Here's your chance to dress up like a hog-straddling badass.

Leave your gowns and tuxes at home for tonight’s American Red Cross Biker’s Ball at Jacobs Field. The second-annual bash is all about letting your hair down and dressing up in your best leather chaps and denim skirts. “Loosen your ties and relax,” advises spokeswoman Jenna Tucci. “Wear your bandanas and tattoos.”

Country singer Danielle Peck provides the tunes as folks nosh on appetizers and sip some booze. Participants can enter raffles and auctions for prizes like a new Harley or a ride on a blimp or biplane. Plus, temporary-tattoo stations will be set up throughout the Jake for those who dare to walk on the wild side -- if only for a few hours. “There’s something for everyone,” says Tucci. “Whether you’re a true biker or just one for the night.”
