MALBEC ARGENTINIAN RESTAURANT IN TOLUCA LAKE

http://malbeccuisine.com/default_toluca.asp


they have a bar, dining area...and for us, they will let us take the quiet backyard patio with a big screen tv. we can bring vids, i have a couple. i can also put together pics that we took this year on dvd.

it's not a big place, and the area that will be reserved for us will only accomodate @ 40 people.


check out the linky and the banquet menu, it seems this place is more reasonable in food prices.

there are 4 banquet dinner menu choices, maybe we can settle for MENU #2 @ $35.99 per person, tax and tip are extra.

Organizing is hard, but hosting it is much more work. So, this time, let's make it simple for everyone, hold it in a restaurant. This is going to cost us a little more.

First of all, we keep it centrally located.

After making tons of phone calls, I've narrowed it down to 2 places based on date, atmosphere, convenient location, and $.

Malbec in Toluca Lake
http://malbeccuisine.com/

Bistro 45 in Pasadena
http://www.bistro45.com/

I'm still looking for other venues, more affordable or better deal.

Man, there are lot of awesome places and they want a deposit of $1K to $5K....

It's going to cost about $50 for each person (alcohol excluded) and we need to see commitments by Monday evening (sorry for the very very short notice). Minimum guest is 30 people and if less, we'll make do of what we have.

I have about $400 from the donations which you guys donated last year. To spice the party up, I can get raffle/door prizes for those who sign up by Monday. .

You don't have to be a regular on this thread, if you just wants to hang out and meet others, that's great. We want to meet new faces too.

That said, I leave it to everyone if we still want to do a Christmas get together or not. Please post up, if you're coming or PM me if not coming.

Very fun mostly street ride to Death Valley and back last weekend. Got to ride Riddler's SE. Very nice!

Left early Saturday morning and it was cold.


Had to stop at Mike's to thaw out our fingers and wait for the sun to come up.


Tom's fingers are starting to get their color back.


Daylight


No gas in Trona. Luckily we fueled up in Johannesburg.


Stopped by Ballerat.




The charcoal kilns.




On to Emigrant Canyon Road.


Fueled up at Stovepipe Wells.


Ubehebe Crater.




This guy was bringing Disco back.


Stopped at an Oasis in the desert.


Scotty's Castle.


Then we rode into Pahrump and set up camp at Jon's uncle's house.


In the morning we hung out some more with Jon's cousins who were out there to scout 4X roads then hit the road back. Jon's cousins and the girl in this picture are also Bolsa Grande alumni.


We rode West on Ash Meadows road and checked out the the Amargosa Hotel and Opera House.


From here it was a long road home.




Passed through Furnace Creek and back to Stovepipe for Gas. Then back through Emigrant Canyon and Trona to Johannesburg for more gas. Then home. Tom tried really hard a couple of times to get speeding tickets but was unsuccessful. Funny thing is, we were doing at least 90 most of the weekend except when we almost got tickets doing about 80. Great ride. Perfect weather.


In for the Christmas Party.

tom, we'll just get a separate dish for bratty from the regular menu (cheaper that way). check out the menu, i only see salad.

in a country where the beef taste the best and the cows outnumber the people; it's hard to be an argentinian and a vegetarian at the same time.


can someone give kuya pat a call and remind him this.
