GA-RX-8 Club September Meet

Ok, we have decided, we are going to have a group meet, on September 15th, at 7 PM, at the top level of the parking deck in a shopping center across from Perimeter mall. I will try to get more details about the shopping center name, and I will make sure there is no fee to park there. I will also get a map made up to make it easy to get to the parking deck. It would be nice to get as many of us there as possible, there are plenty of places to eat around there, good food, and good drink. So, lets see how many 8's we can get to show up.

So far, those planning to attend:

L8 will post up a map soon, and I think there already is one up on the GaRX8club.com site.
If I look into my crystal ball, I see a bunch of people showing up between 6:30 and 7:30, eventually going in to some A/C to get some food and beverages and generally b.s. After a bit, everyone will go outside to show off exhausts, wheels, and other mods. General b.s. will continue. Those with curfews (i.e. the married one's) will have to leave before it gets "too late" and things will generally break up. Smaller groups may proceed elsewhere TBD.

I am now turning off my crystal ball. Hope that helps

yeah, those of us with curfews will not be out all night.

I will be posting a better map, and some real names of places soon. The shopping center I am talking about, is the one right across from Perimeter mall, the one with the new target, that upscale apartment complex, the Taco Mac and the Cheeseburger in paradise place. The parking deck is right next to the Taco Mac and Carrabba's.

Taco Mac is always good. Maybe we can take over the patio. I believe the name of that whole area is Perimiter Place..

Flip_Sole - Nopi continues to Sunday as well - less crowds that day too. This will be worth your time!!

Well, it's on your way back sort of - the top end of Atlanta, basically 400 & 285. It'd take you off of 75 by about 15 minutes each way... You driving all the way back to Nashville on Sat. night from Nopi? That's a haul...

Cheeseburger in Paradise wasn't good?
I didn't know they had one in ATL, and will be trying it sometime.

I ate at the one right on Waikiki Beach in Hawaii and it was friggin awesome.
So good, I actually got a hat from there. Maybe I caught them on a good day.
But for the meet, wherever is good with me.

I would never cut off any franchise for one bad meal and maybe it was just the Greenville store, but there are too many fine eateries in ATL to settle for mediocre.
Al Czervik: Hey, doll. Could you scare up another round for our table over here? And tell the cook this is low grade dog food. I've had better food at the ballgame, you know? This steak still has marks from where the jockey was hitting it.
