    Redwood Rendezvous III
    Our third annual Fall Soiree on the River to benefit
    Dakar-bound Dirk Kessler!

    Update 9/23
    Our good friend Monte (TheGenius) is donating a limited release 18 year Sazerac for the auction block from his collection. This is a Kentucky Straight Rye Whisky produced in small batches and released in limited quanties once a year. This excellent vintage is no longer available in the US and is for sale in Europe starting at $135 USD.

    Update 9/22
    Bike waffle. If you're interested in winning the super-cool Husaberg shown below and supporting a great cause, here's the deal: The bike will be waffled-off Saturday evening. Tickets will be $40 each.

    Items on the silent auction block will be the notebook computer and case, case of Boheme wine and bottle of Sazerac Rye Whiskey.

    The Motorcycle Shop of Santa Rosa will provide a bike lift for all of your bike wrenching needs. Also included will be 37 onlookers who will know exactly what the problem is and what you're doing wrong.

    MX1 West and BMW of Santa Rosa once again have both generously donated schwag for the general (everyone gets a ticket) waffle.
    Thank You!

    Still not sure? Here.

    When: Sept 25-27, 2009
    Please note: The actual start date is Saturday the 26th, but we've had so many people join us a day early that we've changed the dates to include Friday. For folks who'd like to get an early start on the weekend, camping the night of Friday the 25th is available and will be free of charge. However no meals will be provided that night or the following morning. The Roadhouse bar and restaurant will be open for 'business as usual' late and open early during this time to handle your needs. (Bloody's...stat!)

    What:
    Camping in the redwoods. Great food. Great drinks. Phenomenal bunch of folks. Brad says, "what's the point of opening a restaurant if you can't share it with your friends?" Back away from the interwebs, turn off your phone and spend the weekend catching up with old friends or making new ones. Relax in your favorite camping chair with a beer in your hand and grass between your toes.
    The next Rio Nido Roadhouse event is right around the corner. If you've never attended one before, here's what you can expect...
    Redwood Rendezvous I.
    Redwood Rendezvous II.
    Mayday Melee I.
    Mayday Melee II.

    So, what are you goofballs up to?

    For Saturday evening....
