October Club Dinner & Member Meeting ReCap

Little Anita’s New Mexican
Tue Oct 24 2023, 6:30pm
Event Chair: Shain Bare



After 13 months off my Tiger, I decided to take the short 5-mile ride to Little Anita’s New Mexican Foods in Chandler.  10 members of the Rat Pack attended dinner for a promising authentic New Mexican style dinner.  Stuffed full on New Mexican cuisine and good conversation, the waitress then brought out 2 unexpected plates of Sopapillas for our group.  All in all, the night was a good one, and I hope to meet with more members in the future. 


So happy to see Shain back on a scoot again !! ElChinoLoco

October General Membership Meeting & Dinner Recap

Canton Dragon Asian Bar & Grill, Scottsdale, AZ

El Chino Loco’s pick for dinner this month is an old favorite of mine and a long time haunt of ours, especially when I still worked on that side of town often going after work for dinner and sometimes even for lunch!

Over the years, we’ve gotten to know Candy the owner, Phoebe and Anna our usual servers. They serve the style of Chinese food that I grew up with living on the East Coast, so I was excited to make the trek from Buckeye to Scottsdale for this month’s dinner as it had been a while since I had been there.

September General Membership Meeting & Dinner Recap

Euro Pizza Café, Fountain Hills, AZ

I had picked this restaurant as a place the pack should visit for several reasons.

They serve award winning pizza , have a great location on the Fountain Hills lake and the owner,  Merita,  opened this restaurant more then 20 years ago also is a friend of mine. 

This was my first Saturday dinner I planned. Initially I had only reserved 10 seats because I was told that Saturdays might not be desired and people could possibly not go.

July General Membership Meeting & Dinner Recap

Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles, Gilbert, AZ

Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles is a perennial favorite of mine and enjoy the location in Gilbert even though it’s a bit of a ride for me.

I decided not to take the risk and get rained on, it was monsoony looking here in the West Valley, I elected to take the car equipped with a roof and A/C. The temperatures had risen quite a bit during the day and the humidity hadn’t let up. The Ford was a good choice!

May General Membership Meeting & Dinner Recap

Cuban Foods Bakery & Restaurant, Phoenix, AZ

Tonight’s dinner was a combination of catching up with motorcycle friends, talking about old times and some Cuban culture.

It was a fairly warm ride over to Peoria & 43rd Ave where Cuban Foods is located. I left a little early to visit Sam Ash music store less than a mile away. When I arrived at the restaurant, Rodney, Jo and Brian were already there with our table set up.
