Wicked Eugene / Springfield Meet-ups

O.K. ...... my local Eugene and Springfield Duders, and dudettes

Is there any of you that would be interested in a weekly meet up at bars / taverns / pubs to pour down some booze, eat some food, and talk trash - errrr, I mean shop. Shop, being bikes, and ummmmm ....... other types of trash.

Are we gonna let our brothers and sisters to the north of us be the only meet-up on the "wet" side in the PNW regional forums ???????

Let's see who's interested, and if it looks like there's a few of us, we can start planning where, what time, and what day.

What say ye, ya FFs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm in

This is something that I've been wanting to do in EUG fo a while!


Where I used to live, ( up in WA) we'd meet during PST (Pacific Standard time... dark and wet) for beers and such on Wednesdays at 6pm. and durin PDT in the good weather, we'd eat and go for a 1-2 hour ride, and split off before dark.


Times are different for me now, as time is a little in short supply, but I'd love to at least have a group meet for a defenite excuse to ride!

I'd participated with the Eugene Sport Bike website group on group rides, but there is a bit much 'boy racer' during rides to make me feel safe. Nice folks though....

I fall in the category of crusty old bastard(tm) and would rather meet up for a ride. Unless the meets are to plan future epic adventures.

Good idea Funkster,

Just don't let it go down that slippery slope like the PDX thread.


Doh, too late, I see Fishy has already posted here

possible meet-up spots

Fall Creek tavern,Unity,good bar food, you can smoke, plenty roomy, too far away.

Alibi tavern, spfld, good bar food, you can smoke, kinda small, but expanding, (could be crowded on a pool or dart league night.)

Pour House tavern, spfld, great food, you can smoke, lots of room.

Overtime tavern, Eugene, good bar food, smoking outside under a tented area, lots of room, and no threat of lack of bike parking, all the PoserHardlys will be put away for the year

O'Donnell's Irish Pub, Eugene, good bar food, covered area outside for smokers, usually low key, room enough for a bunch of ADV'er to take over.

McShanes, Eugene, lots of room,Okay to smoke, I have heard both good and bad about their food, service can be slow from my experience.

Sam's Place, Eugene, used to have pretty darn good bar food, got room enough, no idea as to service and amenities, have not been in there for a time.

I'm trying to think of locations which may not freak out at a bunch of riders showing up, all wanting drinks of some kind, maybe all wanting food, some smoke, some don't, some swear and laugh loudly, and fart as needed in mixed company, without embarrassment.
Some places will work for some of us, and some may be a total curse to avoid to others. Personally, I am not a big fan of Eugene, the City. (Iliked it fine in '69) We'll have to kinda go by braille,,feel our way along until the consensus is in a comfortable setting. Otherwise,, hell I don't need YFF's to go for a beer and get together with complete strangers and have a good time, but a crew of ADV folk might come off okay.
So,, if you have a favorite spot, & they have somewhat secure parking for bikes, passable food, and a good friendly attitude, and it's not right next door to the police station,, post it up,,suggestions are the seed of decisions.

that "little" irish pub near LCC is McShanes. see above.
the 'biker' bar you are thinking of is "Spirits",,not the Alibi.

you need to get out more often.

Hey, hey ..... I've been out of the loop for a few days ......

Basically I just got swamped, between work, working on one of my bikes, and I picked up a little side job - which I'm about to head off to.

I little extra cash is always a good thing.

They might do something at Papa's Pizza on Thursday ...... I'm not sure.

I like the idea of going to one place one week, another place next week, and so on .....

I'm mean, C'mon it's Eugene / Springfield / Lane County - there aren't that many establishments .......

Thursdays are probably a good day ...... but really for me, just about any day is as good as another ..... Time is a different thing. Either it has to be early enough, that I can go right from work to the meeting spot, or a little later, so I can stop at home and let my dogs out ...... but other than that - I'm flexible .....

Do we want to start up this upcoming week? Perhaps Thursday? If so, I can pick the first place, or Peterman can, or whomever ......

G.

You know it G-funk. By the way, I got so freaking lost on those BLM roads on saturday I wound up about 20 miles from Reedsport, I was lovin every minute of it.

Next time i take a map


My personal favorite gathering place bars are Mulligans, wetlands, or the overtime (just because they are closest, not because they are the coolest).
