    NYC Movable Feast Ride

    so stemming from a discussion in the Monster Track thread I want to do a dinner ride. I'm envisioning something on a Fri or Sat night. We'd meet at a downtown location, a bar for an early drink or something, then ride up to Candle or somewhere else uptown for dinner, then ride down to Atlas or Babycakes for dessert, then over to Brooklyn or something for drinks. of course all stops are negotiable. would anyone else be into this?

    would be better if it was a big homemade moving feast.
    restaurants take a lotta time and servers get pissy when big groups come thru
    and somehow, money is always short/an issue in the end

    if you dont go to grub on sundays by now, you should
    its every 2nd sunday at flushing & classon (rubulad - former happy bday hideout)
    everything is dumpstered, you pay donation only, and the chefs are ****ing awesome
    dedicated people who love the ideas of cheap communal eats
    vegan/veg everything
    and it can hold 200+ people, and does

    it is kind of like that vegan brunch in sf on 24th (cant remember correctly)
    homemade, and beautiful.

    i would be down to do something like that, then ride to drinks, snacks.

    yeah, i was contemplating a homemade movable fest, but that seems like it would mean some people who wanted to be involved would have to stay at their homes to prepare food. i've done it before though, where it was essentially tapas, but each dish was at a different house. good times.

    reservations at candle 79 would solve the big group issue.

    we could do a potluck, where everyone just brought a dish to someone's house... but riding with food can suck sometimes and limits what ya can make.

    i'm up for several food related rides though. two of my favorite things on earth, combined!

    What's the TIME for the grub on Sunday at Flushing & Classon? Does it still happen even if it's raining or snowing?

    Thanks.

    My friend, who also rides, waitresses at that swanky vegan place on the UES (79th and ????) perhaps if she's off she can ride with you guys and apply her discount.

    How about Casa de Pollo Peruano for Peruvian chicken (or Pio Pio on the UES) or El Manara for the ultra dope Armenian chicken (also in Queens -- just like Zankou Chicken for you ex-Angelenos...)
