what time will the judging class take place? And, do I need to do that Tony, if I want to continue to help judge? I know that schedule has already been made at work, so I don't think I will be able to make that.:(

Robbie,

Yes, we can set up another judging certification date. This is also a good time for all of us to get together and talk about the 2006 event season. :thumbsup: Please post here if you are definitely going, please don't be cryptic..it's either yes or no I will be there. Don't hint at it, just say Yes or No, thanks. The event is rain or shine...if it rains, you don't have to bring your Cobra with you.

Tony

What kind a room are you looking for Tony? one that can be closed off or what? food places on harris blvd chilis,fridays, red robbin(good burger place), longhorn, apple bees. up 77n@ sunset blvd theres bubbas BBQ (very good bbq) dennys and few others. Let me know I can give direction to all. Thanks Adam :)

It needs to have a separate seating area preferably where we can all sit together. We might get kicked out otherwise for making too much noise. ;)

cobrabitn
01-04-2006, 09:30 PM
What allan said...if we can get it, a sealed off room. Carlo's will be opening back up next week. :mad:

Tony, I got a banquit room at Texas Ranch steakhouse on sugargreek @5pm for 20-25 people @ $10 min. per person. If you think there will be more people let me know. or if you have any questions let me know. I going to try to get a menu on saterday so people can check it out. They don't have one on the web.

Torrey, sorry I got the E-mail about Midtown after I made the plans..Sorry



Thanks Adam:thumbsup:

cobrabitn
01-05-2006, 01:20 PM
I would guess around 20 people and a big thank you for making the arrangements. Someone suggested Brickhouse Oven on I485 and Johnston Road, that would have made a cool cruise around 485, huh? :rotf:

03slidewayzSVT
01-05-2006, 02:40 PM
Tony, If you want a place farther away let me know!! I can cancel Texas Ranch. I told the guy between 5 and 5:30 and he just said 5:00 pm so if we are late oh well... Just let me know... Thanks Adam:thumbsup:

nckissfan
01-05-2006, 03:26 PM
I couldn't find anything about the Brickhouse, I know it used to be there, may still be. There is no phone # listed. I don't remember them having a room. :doubt:

03slidewayzSVT
01-05-2006, 03:33 PM
I justed called 411 as a last option and they have no record of brickhouse oven on johnston rd... so let me know.

cobrabitn
01-05-2006, 03:55 PM
I'm sorry I typed it wrong..it's Red Brick Pizza and the address is I485 Johnston Road and Torridon Way. Steve Treece sent me the e-mail but I cannot find a phone number for it. It must be new. :(

cobrabitn
01-05-2006, 04:06 PM
Okay...Steve Treece is riding by in a few minutes and will get the phone number so we can give them a call. I'll just post the number here and you can call since you volunteered initially and let us know the results. We should call the other restaurant back and let them know we will have to cancel once we confirm Red Brick Pizza. If they do not have a room then we can stick with the original plan. I like the idea of cruising together down the interstate, that's always fun!

Once we confirm that...let's plan on rolling down I77 to I485 and terrorizing Charlotte with a bunch of snakes! :rotf:

cobrabitn
01-05-2006, 04:22 PM
Scratch that idea...they do not have a room but the guy would love for us to have a "cruise-in" there sometime this year. Let's plan one! :)

Here is another place highly recommended and it's Italian and by the Mall.

http://www.bucadibeppo.com/

The number is 1-866-EAT-BUCA and they are supposed to have separate rooms. Give them a call and let us know what you find out? I'm sort of partial to the Brick Oven Pizza though, just wish they had a separate room. :(

I called Buca di beppo they have a min. of 30 people. pricing start at $22 to $32 per person. The lady is going to E-mail me about it after 6 pm. I personally think it's outrageous for pasta and pizza. let me know what you think so far.

97whitevert-I'll check to see if they have banquit rooms.. If I remember right they have a buffet? Let me know, I'll see what Tony wants. as of right now we have a room at texas ranch @ 5pm so let the majority decide.. post idea's THAT have a banquit room. then we can decide on what sounds the best.

Thanks Adam:thumbsup:

got E-mail from buca di beppo 30 people min $660 to $960 is for 30 people. bad part is that there is a 2 hour limit on the room (BS) hurry up and leave sounds like. I looked at there 3 menu's and the one that looks the best is $31.99 person but everyone must choice from one menu. Plus they require a down non-refundable deposit by credit card. Sound like it's a pain to me. let me know.

Bump that on the Italian Eatery, Puka di Boopa. They must think they have food made out of gold. Their conditions are ludicrous! :rolleyes:

Personally, I think I'd rather go to the Red Brick Pizzeria since the guy was very nice on the phone. He said he would push tables together for us so we could have one big table but it would be in the middle. I do like the idea of cruising around 485 though. :thumbsup: However, I'll go with what the majority wants to do... :)

We need to finalize something and, or Texas ranch needs to know!!!!:D

cobrabitn
01-06-2006, 06:27 PM
Go with TX Ranch Steakhouse and we'll take the long way there. We already basically booked the room and have committed ourselves.

We can do the Pizza scene at a cruise in, maybe March or the end of February depending on the weather?? Maybe a dyno day/detail day and do Pizza afterwards? We'll cross that bridge when we get to it. :thumbsup:

Slow Dawg and Binky had a great time on Saturday.When I learn how to drive (and fit into the cart) I may have to put out a challenge. The cruise was great. It beats going around 485 in the old company Impala. :bounce:
