This month, we decided to do something a little different. We thought it would be fun to combine our 2nd Sunday get together with a fun activity. Todd Gilles, one of our board members, thought it would be fun to meet at 18 Degrees which is connected to the Ice Den for lunch and then a session of public skating at the rink.
This month’s meeting & dinner was held in the West Valley for a change giving me a welcomed short drive home. I did say drive! Kudos to Jerry Fuentes for being the only member to ride his bike to dinner! As you can imagine, it was a cold (for us in Arizona) evening dipping into the high 40’s.
We visited the West Valley for our February 2nd Sunday Breakfast. Located near University of Phoenix Stadium and Westgate on Northern Ave, west of the 101, the Lone Spur Café proved to be an excellent location for breakfast!
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the traditional January Club Meeting & Dinner at the George & Dragon Pub this year because I was in Las Vegas for the weekend. I always look forward to this dinner as it’s the first place I attended an AZRATPack dinner way back in 2006. At least though, I was doing something motorcycle related!
Our first event of the year was put together by Road Captain, Steve Stoops. He highly recommended the Soul Café which is one of his favorite breakfast haunts and arranged for us to have our own section which was inside and set apart and up higher than the rest of the restaurant.
