Good Morning! Cleveland's West Side bar Now That's Class has started a Kickstarter campaign to buy a mechanical bull for its nine-year birthday party. 

"The only way to celebrate this momentous occasion is to install a 20 x 20 mechanical bull into the show space," say the event organizers on their Kickstarter page.  

"This has been a dream of ours from the beginning. We never ask for handouts, but this one is going cost us a mint in order to fulfill the dreams of many of our patrons! We are footing the rest of the bill. We just need a little help. And with your donation you will have the pleasure of you and your friends riding a mechanical bull. Yeehaw m-fers!! In addition we will have live square dance music in the background."

So far, two gallant supporters have donated $30 to the cause. The goal: a modest $650.

Given the spatial limitations of Now That's Class (located at 11213 Detroit Ave.) only the most diehard square dance buffs and mechanical bull enthusiasts should expect an anxiety-free evening.

The party's going down March 19 at 8 p.m. Prospective bull-riders will be asked to pay a small fee for the privilege. But, as the Facebook event guarantees, it will be "totally worth it."
