Meet-and-Eat @ my place?

Here. Here.
I love this group! Great to see everyone.

Now that summer's here again, I'd like to offer to host the Meet-and-Eat at my studio in Oakland - if all are down for that. I've got a nice patio area with a fire pit and BBQ - and there's plenty of bike parking. I was thinking to grill for everyone, and to have a bonfire with fancy hardwood scraps. Whaddaya think?

June looks pretty wide open except for the 19th [my anniversary]. Someone name a date.

Wish me luck at the Sheet Iron this weekend.

I vote yes on the Gringo's shop!

So good to see everyone at the Warehouse, old faces and new! Nice to meet Mrs. Larryboy, too! (No, I won't call you Donna...)

I'll post up some more photos later today, I gotta get to work right now, but here are a few from the Wall...







Whoa...

Is it Tuesday's turn? June 11th ish?

I can totally vote for the home grown idea in Oakland.

You got the setup for sure.

The land yacht leading the charge...and don't believe him when he says "slow" "mellow pace" blah, blah, blah...The big dude knows how the hustle the big girl through the turns, for sure...



My view of Guy, Rob and Zak...



Voici LeDakaR!



Look closely and you can see the Harley on the side of the road...


We had a really nice corner all to ourselves...









My only photo of Mrs. larryboy, dammit! And Nixels, of course...



The man, the legend...



The Gringo...



Why is Kevan holding SenorPeligro's beer?







This shyster is up to no good...



Of course, these three aren't either!



cme4lyt, joefromsf, slackmeyer...



The 2 New Guys! New Guy On Bitchin' Triumph Street Triple, dakariste, Warren...




Motley crew but oh so sexy! All of `em!



Adventure comes in many flavors...




Ok, kids...that's all I got. Yes, I was there, but as usual there is no photographic evidence


I really enjoy the ambience of the Warehouse. It's easier to be social and talk to everyone there as we aren't sitting at a long table stuck talking to whoever we're sitting next to. No wonder Ben liked it there! The bartender said they're serving food on Thursdays now so maybe when softball is over we can hit `em up on a Thursday, eh?

Great seeing everyone again, and nice talking to the newbies, too! I hope y'all felt welcome!

June 11 @ Gringo's place

Ok, Chris called it. We'll do the next meet-up on Tuesday June 11 - at my shop.

I'll cook - some meat and something for the vegetarians too.

As we get closer to the date, maybe chime in if you're coming - so I know how much food to prepare.

Don't worry, I can't make this one, I'll be up in washington that week. Sounds like a great one though, wish I could be there.

I think you are a bit overreacting. I mean slightly...

Ben's Brigade assembled to remember him and his wisdom:



larryboy's always so uptight, I wish he'd loosen up every once in a while:



Misfits:



Woodschick!



And after that big ol' smile - just a bunch of FF's in their riding gear.
