Sideways: Get chased by a naked fat middle-aged tow truck driver and his flapping penis through the streets of Solvang adventure

Miles and Jack escaping from the house Now, for the first time ever, you can re-create the harrowing experience of being chased out of a house and down the street by a naked fat middle-aged tow truck driver and his flapping penis, just as Miles and Jack did in the blockbuster movie, Sideways!

In response to the overwhelming demand for Sideways-related events, we have teamed up with Fox Searchlight Pictures to bring you this truly unique adventure in the actual neighborhood where the scene was shot. Participants will start off the re-creation in the tow truck driver's living room. A director will yell "action", and you will then make a dash for Jack's wallet in the bedroom and then out into the street where a getaway Saab 900 will be waiting for you. The moment you grab the wallet, a naked fat middle-aged tow truck driver will then chase you out of the bedroom towards the car. If you can complete the course in less time than Miles took in the movie, you will also win a free tasting glass from Sanford Winery!
