Our final Alien Donuts Saturday Social for a while at least was at their new location in downtown Tempe. They were forced to move from their Scottsdale location last month because their landlord chose not to renew their lease.
The morning ride was fairly cool but humid, but once up to freeway speed, the coolness of the air prevailed and made for a nice ride to Tempe!
Though their new location is in a more centralized spot for our members to travel, it’s not ideal for us to sit and congregate as we ended up sitting if front of a still close Mexican restaurant next door.
The donuts are out of this world as usual! It was great to catch up with everyone and get out some early information on September’s Alien Abduction Grand Tour. A fitting place to make the announcements of some of the details!
Moving forward, we will not be holding the Alien Donuts Saturday Social because of us now running a full regular schedule of 2nd Saturday Breakfasts, Rides and General Membership Meetings and Dinners, it has become difficult to justify committing to a 4th event per month.
This was a nice bridge for us to start holding social events after the Covid-19 lockdown while waiting to get a regular schedule going. Who knows, at some point in the future, Alien Donuts may make a comeback!
