    The owner and manger has opened the option of hosting a BIKE NIGHT once a month - I've been asked to invite riders to show interest. They are also planning a Custom Car night, I want to show 'em some moto-support can be fun too!

    There is no date set, they are expanding their dinner schedule soon, this could jump start it. I was thinking a Thursday, 6:30 or 7:00.

    Now that the rain has started it would be fun to have a few ADV bikes line the parking in front of the place.

    If there's any interest just chime in, good food, classic diner, nice owner, excuse to ride... easy enough.

    I'd be very interested! (though my current schedule has my bikes parked for the next month or so). I could see grabbing my riding crew and making a night of it. One vote Yes!

    Anybody in for next Thursday, Oct. 25th?:freaky

    6:30pm...ish.

    The diner sort of called me out since I've asked about it so much. Gotta round up some bikes and they'll start "bike night" promotions if it goes well.

    The church on hwy 305 hosts a Cruise In for their backpack drive on the last Tuesday of each fair weather month (May-Sept). The last Thursday could work as bike night at the Madison Diner, maybe raise donations for Riders.org (there's a Seattle Chapter).

    Any and all input welcome, these is just my 2ct. I'd like to see more than 1-2 bikes for the first visit. To make it a regular sched-program we'd need quite a few more. HELP A BROTHA OUT!:deal

    THIS Thursday (tomorrow) is the last one this month and therefore BIKE NIGHT @ Madison Diner.

    Should anyone chose to brave the holiday conditions, I'll join ya for a cup-o-coffee and some grub.

    6:30pm-ish, look for the GS out front.

    It was the first one that offered a FREE milkshake to anyone on a bike!

    This Thursday, get your FREE milkshake when you ride in for coffee, dinner, or just to visit. The owners are riders even if it's cruisers, and the staff know to look for bikes. Maybe weather is still crap but that never stopped us before.

    See at the Madison Diner Thursday.

    Wish I saw this before!

    I grew up on the rock and come back to see my my parents every couple months and definitaly want to hit this up.

    Is the Madison diner the old school style one next to the Pavillion? or is it further down the hill?

    tryin to 'splain "Bike Night" to my Mrs. when there's only one bike in the lot :huh - mine.

    Come the F on people, this place is SUPPORTING bikes and actually looks forward to the last Thursday thing. Sure they stand to sell a burger or two, but wouldn't it be great to be welcomed on purpose by a cool joint for a change?

    See ya next time.
