Not rolex, but Elgin. This mural can be found on the side of "La Costina" mexican restaurant. (I haven't tried the foood).






Which brings me to a new tag! I remembered this as a mural, but learned they're wooden cutouts. Despite this, you can enjoy an authentic Deutchlander meal here. Great ethnic beers here too, they serve Bitburger beer (I lived in Bitburg for a few years).



Enjoy!

Nice work KLR-Sam. Looks like we're on a mural kick here.

Not a grab.

This is not a grab, but it lets you know the place can be found.



Happy hunting.

I'm still searching. I would really like a good beer! Have any of you adventurers look at other states tag-o-Rama games. I ventured into the Florida game and read their rules. There is specific guidance on establishments that serve alcoholic beverages and how a tag or grab requires an empty or full glass in the picture.

Sounds entertaining.

Oct 15th Lunch?

I have internet creep'd this tag location. Now that I know it's location, I will be headed that way for lunch tomorrow at 1130 if any one cares to join me. I'll bring my Bavarian motorcycle for the occasion.

I really wish I could, but I'm working tomorrow. Enjoy! (I'm on vacation next week though, with cancelled plans that included riding NC mountains and camping). Ah well, maybe this spring:)

A friend and I plan to ride tomorrow (Oct 17th) around 11 am. Not sure where, yet. Possibly look for a tag or a pleasure ride somewhere in the state. Anyone wanting to join is welcome, and even better if you know of some nice scenic roads or twisties.

Likely to be a day trip, and just happy to be out riding. Post or send me a pm :) I'm also on vacation this week, so I'm open to other rides/plans as well!

I keep getting roped into things on the weekend! Ugh! Today is the construction of a treadmill..

And I know exactly where this tag because I went there and they were closed. Saturday's they are only open for dinner.

Congrats on the grab! Sorry I missed ya Gimpy, I would have liked to ride. This weekend though, I'm replacing a rear tire, chain adjust and oil change. I work 6 days a week now so finding time to really get out and ride is getting difficult. Though I do get a fix as I also commute daily :)
I'm looking forward to the new tag (*eyes rice), and I know I'm not alone!

* edit add * odd that it shows me on. Maybe my phone logs in when it's checking subscribed threads for new posts. I'm working today.
