    Fri. lunch was good and cheep, great to meet up with you two.
    I use to hit the Gold Dragon on Commercial SE, but it's special was $4.00 :eek1 But they do have $.99 longneck Buds.

    I stopped at South Liberty Bar & Grill. It is $1 beer all day Sun. and $1 slice pizza after 5pm. She'll have a few ready for us (8 slice ea.) I'll cover the first two pizza's. Show up at 5pm, (I may be there sooner, depending on MDay).

    The place is across from Sunnyslope Plaza, corner of Hrubetz and Liberty. If your coming in from I-5, take the Kuebler exit and head west to Liberty, turn right. On the right a few blocks up.

    Definition: SKAJers (Salem/Keizer/Albany/Jefferson) Cheap food/drink skags with some riding thrown in.


    Tempting Meet-ups (double the meet-ups, double the fun)
    Wed. Happy hour at S. Liberty; $1.50 Coronas
    Mon: " will verify ; $2.00 You call it

    Dave, I'd be glad to hook up in Salem. What time do you think? 9ish? or maybe an 8 o'clock breakfast at Sylvia's? or some other time and place?



    </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

    I've got a couple of 2fer1 coupons (which I'll copyright as 241 :lol3 ) (which I'll copycopyright that as "7", which is the numbers added together, and henceforth known as the "Lucky 7 group", copy3righted as L7G)

    So to be a member of the L7G team, you have to let me buy the meal. I'm well armed with my Entertainment Book, but also know the local coups to clip.
    Dave gets the second invite (G-Dog was first in '05), if we can meet at Bigfoot Bar & Grill at 9am Sun. It's at 3330 Commercial St SE, Salem (just south of Pizza Hut/liquor store, north of Freddies/Dominos.
    If anyone wants to pair with MS, I've got extra coups, but you work out the split. Others welcome, extra coups in Salem Monthly.

    As attested by the 2 attendees at the Salem meet-up yesterday, don't dismiss a suggested Bigmak food venue until you've tried it :nod

    We both agreed the other title was hard to find :lol3
    But SKAJ's sounds a little obtuse.
    Perhaps I'll start a new thread called Jefferson/Albany/Keizer/Salem Meet-up

    JAKS

    When we get it figured out we'll make the mods merge things :nod

    Can anyone attend?
    I am in the Salem area (hell, 1 block from Liberty road inn). Have been looking for other dual sport riders in the area. All of my old trail riding friends have retired from the sport. Currently have two enduro's in my stable - my trusty old '78 Yamaha DT400E 2-stroke (yes, it is all original & street legal) & a new 2009 Suzuki DRZ400S.

    Phew! 9am TODAY was too early. I'll try to get out for an extended lunch break and see everyone there at 5pm today. I'll probably get there fashionably late and leave a little early to get back to the grind.

    See you there.

    Another Bigmak approved joint! YAY!:freaky

    Everyone is welcome, even if you're
    on a skateboard, (but then you'd have to buy a round :wink: ).

    Note to self; Hmmm, 1 block away, staggering distance :nod

    (I use to live on Dwight, in the early 80's.)

    More fun ideas.

    I won't update the name until after the Vintage run, but I was feeling sorry for the Corvallis tribe. So in the future our meet-ups will be the gathering of JACKS- Jefferson/Albany/Corvallis/Keizer/Salem. More meet-ups for more fun :nod

    When we have a meet-up day, it will be JACKS-on. The few days we might not be offering a gathering will be JACKS-off.

    We'll discuss if we want a One or Two-eyed Jack as a symbol, but every time someone attends, they will get/draw a playing card. Sometime in the fall, we will have a gathering where the card holders can pick their best 5 cards to present the best poker hand for a jackpot (to be determined)

    [​IMG]


    I bought the first round, $1 slice x 8



    [​IMG]

    El Pyro (LIStrom) is a worthy opponet for pizza consumption :bow
    (that be 1 slice)



    [​IMG]

    Our waitress told me to "lean in" for the pic, the next pic will show why I obeyed.









    [​IMG]

    She searches for lipgloss.....



    [​IMG]

    She found it. Why?......





    [​IMG]

    El Pyro was lamenting the lack of pretty woman on Strom's, and I wanted to help him out :nod

    Not to be obtuse, but has the newly formed JACKS...either on or off, done any riding yet? I ask because this is marginally a riding thread...:roflor was.
