    oh christ...



    we DID used to go out and meet in Pasadina awhile back, but the place was WAY too small.

    We need to find a place that is a bit more central with a larger area to congregate.... that would be fun.

    the real problem with that, is anyone south of the 10 freeway, if trying to get there after work, wont get there till after 8!

    In all realisticness, that might be the most central place.

    Burbank seems to be centrally located, but I'm willing to ride down to Old Town Pasadena just to make this happen. Any restaurant with parking for bikes in the front, part of the meet is to talk about the bikes and we want them visible. There's Crocodile Cafe on Lake and patio dining (next to the sidewalk). We can park in front on the street.

    The Norton guys meet at Burger Continental on Lake Avenue and they've been doing it for many years.

    ZSlug at one time suggested the Crown City Brewery which is cool too, but I thought when I drove there last week, it's no longer CCB! I can check it out, but if someone is out there, pls. do so.

    hollywood, burbank, pasadena all sound like good locations that are somewhat central.

    TUESDAYS 8:30

    my bar ideas are

    Bigfoot Lodge on Los Feliz Blvd in Atwater Village(right off the 5)

    Jumbos Clown Room on Hollywood Blvd

    3 of Clubs on Vine and Santa Monica Blvd

    Burgundy Room on Cahuenga

    errr theres a place in Burbank right off the 5 near Ikea sorta

    Gold Room on Sunset Blvd in Echo Park

    Short Stop on Sunset Blvd in Echo Park

    Tuesdays at 8.30pm is good for Colleen and James, any city, BUT no drinking alcohol and riding or driving. I'd suggest a coffee shop with a patio and views of the bikes, it is essentail to be able to walk around the bikes with a cuppa and shoot the shit. We had tons of places like this every week night of the week in England when I was a lad. Mainly truck stops with large car parks but sometimes holes in the wall that were groovy for other reasons. The Village Grill in Claremont has become a motorcyclists hang out in the late afternoon, but it is perhaps too far for most. Crap we could just about meet at any McDonalds and have a good time but a place with 'atmosphere' would be cool. I am a lover of Newcastle Brown Ale myself, been drinking it since 1966 after all, but a couple of them and I think I am Rossi or Evel Kneivel, my tolerance is pretty high but my will power is AWFUL low.

    Paging all TARDS, paging all TARDS....

    We use to get a thing together down on Venice beach... seems to have fallen off the map lately

    It's been a while, but this is another call to one and all "Thirsty Adventure Riding Dogs" in the Los Angeles area. Don't worry, if you're wondering if you are a TARD, I assure you that you are... at least enough of one to join us for little holiday cheer.

    Re: Tucker's requirements, The Stand in Encino is a nice non-bar joint to hang out at. Gourmet Sausage & Dogs, and wine & beer if you insist. They had a bike nite for awhile, but now it's live outdoor Jazz on Thursday nights. And Dollar Dogs on Mondays.

    The Stand in Encino is big enough, with a patio and parking lot.
    More of a family vibe (kids, strollers, milfs :evil) and they DO have a few beers on tap.
    I was there tonight. nice but not really an adv scene.

    there is a huge sport bike crowd there, 'rough riders' and other sport bike clubs night out in hollywood and at universal.
    i would be down to go to any of these if we were sure we had a HUGE turn out(not as back up, but just as a good adv crowd), but i like the idea of a more lowkey place. kinda like OUR OWN bar.
    even somewhere where they have SPEED channel on the tv.:type

    Hooters in Pasadena! They are pretty good with "biker" crowed. I used to go their with a sports bike group the second Tuesday of the month. They would block off an area in the front so we could keep an eye on the bikes. Guys would get their early and block off the parking in the front. [​IMG]
