I'm chilling on the patio at Twin Peaks in Lewisville if anyone's up for it. (Sorry for the late notice - September snuck up on me.)

S'alright, we ended up going early, getting loaded on BBQ and then came home around 6:30 to go comatose.

It's a bummer that no one makes it out for these anymore. The group dynamic has definitely changed.

Made for a nice little date with EG though.

Talking These still happening?

Hey!

I'm in the DFW area for a while (bikeless) but wouldn't mind hanging out and listening to others talk about their adventures.

I'm getting to know the North DFW (Airport) area, so that might be a good place for me to start.

I think the problem is the size of the geographic area of Dallas/Ft. Worth - same thing with the tag game (and the reason why I tried doing a Dallas area only one).

It's hard enough finding time for these things as it is, let alone if they are an hour or more drive for people coming from all over the area (especially on a Friday night when traffic is going to be heavier anyway) thanks to the lovely traffic out here. What should be a 20 or 30 minute drive ends up taking an hour or more thanks to the traffic. I see things all the time that I wouldn't mind checking out, I just can't justify the hassle of getting to most of them and I'm sure others feel the same way.

If you guys want to set up something for Fri, December 6th, I should be moved back into the Dallas area by that date. Would love to meet up with some people and get some riding buddies...

I would be alright with this as well. Any suggestions?

Now that I've calmed down, I can reply.

This thread began on a rotation schedule (see OP) -- that way everyone north, east, south, and west of the airport would get a chance to attend somewhere close to them.

It also started as something that EVERYONE was meant to contribute to and organize, but I ended up being the only one to ever post suggestions.

Even with the rotation, everyone had excuses. I think one dork from Canada only waited ten or twenty minutes (while EG and I were enroute), and then left, bitching that he had "gone all that way in all that traffic for nothing bla bla bla" (only to jump right back into it twenty minutes later -- go figure).

Everyone says they want to ride and/or hang out, but no matter how accommodating I try to be with locations, there was always an excuse -- and PLENTY of whining. You don't like the location I picked out? Suggest one of your own!

So I started a Second Saturday Beer Meet thing, and guess what? Yup, same ol' song and dance.

**A HUGE THANKS TO THE HANDFUL OF PEOPLE WHO DO ACTUALLY ATTEND THESE THINGS REGULARLY -- ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S LITERALLY JUST TWO OR THREE OF US THERE***

So I'm going to ride this shit out until the end of the year, but it hasn't been worth the hassle. I have a full time job (and them some) too, ya know. Maybe with some new blood on the forum, things will be more enthusiastic next year.

December beer meet

DECEMBER BEER MEET -- Friday December 6 -- 6p-whenever

@

TWIN PEAKS in Lewisville
2601 S Stemmons Fwy Ste 100, Lewisville · (214) 488-7222



For those of you who have never been here (or avoid it), I will say that it is leagues above either Hooters or (especially) Redneck Heaven. Some members don't dig "breasteraunts," and I usually agree. But this place is cozy, themed with a log cabin/sports bar atmosphere, and the ladies are far more clothed (and classier) than any of those other locations. Plus, the food is freaking delicious (no matter what you order), and they have GREAT beer, including some house-brew selections. Give it a try; if you still don't have a good time, THEN you can complain.
