Great to see everyone in Martinez! Kate loved meeting you all - I'm sure she'll be coming to more of these meet-ups.

Thanks for the gentle ribbing about the ride report. I've finally started it. Check it out!
Arctic Relay 2012 - aka "Pass the Gringo"


For next month, what about picking a spot that's accessible by a different scenic ride? The Wall runs beforehand have been a great addition to the Meet-and-Eats, for those of us coming from the Berkeley / Oakland areas.

There's a really cool place called Monaghan's on the Hill up near Montclair. We could meet in Castro Valley and ride up Redwood Rd. - or meet at The Wall and do a loop down Pinehurst to Redwood Rd.. Just some thoughts. I'd love to see some rides in the area that I don't know about too, if such things exists. EBMUD gatecrashing up and around San Pablo Reservoir anyone? That's ADVenterous, right?

I'll bring my 12V grinder for those pesky gates.

And...Yes, I think Monaghan's on the Hill would give everyone the opportunity to ride Redwood Rd, or Pinehurst Rd, Skyline.

They have Specials



Taco Tuesday


3pm Close
$2 Tacos, $2 Beer Specials
$4 Margaritas, $1 Chips and Salsa

Wicked Wing Wednesday


All day long, $.50 per wing ask about other Wednesday-only drink promotions at the bar


Thirsty Thirst-days


3pm Close
Bucket of beer 5 for$10.00, Modelo, Negro Modelo, Bud, Bud light

Let's lock and load a date.

Taco Tuesday at Monaghan's

Hey All.

If we are going to keep the alternating Tues/Wed schedule, it would be Taco Tuesday, September 11 (9/11 as it were) at Monaghan's on the Hill. 6:00.

Does that work for y'all?

Cheers

Kevan

(BTW, if you haven't yet, go read Steve Alaska trip report. Great report, great pics, just generally awesome)

9/11 works for me as well.

Thanks Kevan!
