DFW Holiday Get-Together Dec 28th 6:30pm

EDIT: DATE SET

December 28th, BJ's Pizza Addison (approx Beltline @ Addison Rd., for those not of the immedate area that's to the north west a bit of 635 @ Dallas North Tollway.)

Time: Let's shoot for 6:30. Should give most people enough time to get off work and head out. If anyone needs more time we can push later. Just please let me know.

Gingerman is big enough for MANY riders, including bikes if you want to lock up to the fence at the sidewalk (Sunday night riders have done this successfully with about 60 of us). I'm in for any weekend night, even the 7th.

On re-reading the above, g-man does not have tables (for big groups) except out on the patio which is heated when cold. Sometimes they have live music out back, too. But no swimming pool or basketball hoops. It's a beer place, I don't recommend the food...fatty, salty stuff suitable for drinking more. Except the tamales used to be good.

How about Friday the 28th?

Anyone not good with that date? Should be fair enough ahead of new years, but far enough after christmas.

We've been to the BJ's before (in fact it was the location of the first DFW meet and greet and always a good option in my opinion.

For those considering riding in, be warned that Belt Line has a a lot of traffic, but the restaurant isn't far from Inwood / Addison road which would be a good road to cut up from the south on. There is some construction on Addison Rd north of Beltline, but there are probably some decent detours around that as well.

lol, depending on the size of the group, we'll probably be in the large group room off on the left hand side of the resturant (if you're looking at the front of the place from the front door). Anyone who wants my cell number can PM me for it, and I'll try to remember to wear my Campagnolo cycling cap!

I know the cross streets, but can't say I've ever seen a city limit sign for Double Oak in my travels out that way. I look forward to meeting all the new members and getting to have a few beers with them and the long standing members around these parts as well.

Cool! It is a pretty nice area and reminds me a bit of where I grew up in Connecticut. Oh and if you ever see this very out of place for double oak little house next to the fire station/town hall

With an even more out of place solar hot water heater (picture form when it was under construction)

Thats where I live with my bike commuting wife, she has 4 bikes to my 1 though I'm hoping to ride over to BJs on my way home on the 28th but I plan on making it even if I have to drive
