25th Anniversary Hot Harley Nights Poker Run 


Each year, the Hot Harley Nights Poker Run is a crowd favorite! 


We decided to change things up a bit-- instead of the Poker Run only lasting one day, we’re having it go ALL WEEKEND LONG! This will give participants three days to enjoy the ride, hitting up each stop at their own convenience. Whether you want to complete the Poker Run in one day or spread it out across multiple days, the beautiful rides and amazing prizes make the Hot Harley Nights Poker Run such a fun way to raise money for Make-A-Wish. 


An entry fee of $39.99 includes, not only admission to the Poker Run, but a t-shirt, poker chip, and a parade bandana. 


J&L is the homebase for the Poker Run: pick up your card from the dealership, visit all five Poker Run locations, and return your card back to J&L. Upon dropping off your card, you will select your poker hand and be entered to win prizes, including: a 5,000 mile service at J&L, a $100 J&L gift card, or a set of tires from Western Powersports. (And bragging rights, of course!). 


Return your card to J&L Harley-Davidson at the following times:

Friday 5pm-8pm

Saturday 12pm-4pm

Sunday 9am-4pm 


Here are the six stops for the 25th Anniversary Hot Harley Nights Poker Run:


Take 16 Brewing Company

The best way to cool off on a Hot Harley Night is with a refreshing beer. Stop by Take 16 Brewing Company and enjoy a cold one on their spacious patio. We recommend a glass of the thirst-quenching Country Mile Kolsch-- a german inspired ale with a crisp flavor. If you like IPAs, Surprise Party’s mix of citrusy hops and a touch of caramel malt is a favorite. Not a beer drinker? Take 16 just released Seltzers in a variety of flavors-- we can’t wait to give these a try! Crowlers and growlers are available if you’d like to take some on the road! 


The Shipwreck Bar & Grill

Riding can sure make you hungry! Fill up your tank at Shipwreck Bar and Grill. Be sure to check out their specials: Friday is Steak Night, Saturday is Prime Rib, and Sunday is Wings and Pizza! While you wait for your food, you can enjoy playing games with friends: giant Jenga, pinball, darts, and shuffleboard! Did we mention it’s on the lake? Doesn’t get better than that!


Glacial Lakes Harley-Davidson

An easy 100 mile ride from J&L Harley-Davidson, straight up the 29, takes you to Glacial Lakes Harley-Davidson. Located in Watertown, SD, Glacial Lakes boasts an over 14,000 square foot showroom. Check out parts and accessories, get a new shirt in the MotorClothes Department, or sit on some of the 2021 models! 

Grand Falls Casino and Golf Resort

What’s better than playing Poker during a Poker Run?! Stop by the Grand Falls Casino for a round of Texas Hold’em, Craps, Blackjack, and more! The resort is home to restaurants, and event center, golf course, spa, and RV park! Want to cool off? Passes are available for purchase to use their indoor and outdoor pools!


JJ’s Wine, Spirits, and Cigars

JJ’s has the largest selection of premium and super premium wine in the state of South Dakota! Not knowledgeable about wine? Their friendly staff will help you choose the right one to satisfy your taste buds. If wine isn’t your thing, JJ’s also specializes in whisky. They are fully stocked with single barrel bourbons-- count us in! Whether you enjoy wine, whisky, rum, vodka, beer, or ciders, JJ’s is the place to be. Ready for the best part? JJ’s is home to THE BOOZY BAKERY. That’s right. BOOZE in your FOOD. 


J&L Harley-Davidson

J&L Harley-Davidson is the heart and soul of Hot Harley Nights. Since opening their doors in 1975, J&L has continued to be a dealership that feels like home and has taken an active role in the Sioux Falls community. Participants will pick-up and drop-off their Poker Run cards at the dealership.
