“The Garlic Knot” Auto Show is coming!

Hello there from Lakewood, Colorado!

My business in Colorado is located in a small shopping center called “Bear Creek” – and every Thursday evening the pizza shop (The Garlic Knot) in our parking lot holds a small car show.

Their big event – the mother of all Garlic Knot sponsored car shows will be held on Saturday August 29th, from 11:00am to 3:00pm.


We will have a sidewalk event that day and we are currently planning our agenda for the day. I think that we’ll have a BBQ station for hot dogs and drinks, as well as give out tons for repair coupons and meet the awesome car cruisers of Lakewood, Colorado.

If you’re in the neighborhood and want to see some of the areas best show cars, we’d love to have you out for some fun, sun and to see some of these works of art.

I think that we’ll take a tech bench outside for the day as well and work in the great outdoors. That means you’ll be able to stop by our booth and have that iPad repaired while you’re checking out the vehicles! August is a mighty fine month to be outside in Denver, we hope to see you here!

Thanks, take care, Ryan

Have you ever seen a dog smile?

Good afternoon friends,

So there I was, hanging out in my basement just after taking my dogs for a walk. Our male Shadow decided to flop down on the floor and rest. He’s just like me 😉

Layla on the other hand was needing a little more attention, so she sat right in front of me – “smiling”. I imagine it was her way of saying “dad, thanks for being there for me”. Both of our dogs were rescued from abusive owners and both have had rough beginnings. There are times that they both show their past a little bit, but for the most part it appears that we’ve been able to snap these two out of their depression by giving them a loving home. Heck, they are basically children to us and they irreplaceable.


This brings me to the fact that Father’s Day is just around the corner. To the “human” Arter kids: I’m expecting a big breakfast in bed and a BBQ dinner Sunday. Just a “heads up!” so you don’t miss this opportunity to take care of me this weekend!

We here at Mission Repair will be taking care of the fathers of the world as well with some fantastic specials that only happen once a year. Happy upcoming Father’s Day to ALL fathers – whether it be of children or canines – and we’ll help you celebrate right here at Mission Repair.

Stay tuned, and if you’re like me you might need to preemptively “warn” your kids like I did…it gives them a fighting chance to do the right thing!

Have a great week, Ryan
