Bump.... so we're going to the wineburger place?
Beat me to it Nick. I was just thinking we should put this back up top. I gotta ask, what's the deal with a "wineburger"? Anything unique, or, just a catchy name?
I dunno about this whole wineburger deal, but if Chip and those guys say its good, it'll be good.
I'm cutting it close on all four projects this week...I expected to get ahead today, but was set back about a month. Brian's clutch still isn't here, the mini-bike is(still) in pieces, my truck has no seatbelts or dash, and the cam for the dragster is traveling 1500 miles. Looks like I'm in for a hot-rodders Hell week before the races this weekend. Let's git it on!!!
Lets do Harvey's Wineburger on 16th st just south of Camelback at 6:30 or 7:00. what say you guys on time?
Ha! I was just coming in here to bump this. I'm cool with whatever time, as I am now FREE! No more work for me until I get home.
I am new to the Phoenix area.......so I thought I would bring my '36 roadster over to the this little get together and meet a few fellow hotrodders.
I am way up north in Cave Creek, so where the hell is this place we are meeting at tomorrow?
Take the 51 south to Camelback, exit then take Camelback west to 16th street. Turn south on 16th street, and Harvey's Wineburger will be on the right.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
Actually, you have to exit Colter as there is no exit at Camelback. Just exit right on Colter, left on 16th street, continue south past Camelback and look to the right. It's about a half block south.
Now, to answer Bodi's question as to what is a wine burger... It's heaven on a bun! Their Superburger is a full half pound of beef with the cheese lovingly nestled inside the meat then grilled and continously doused with red wine. Must be a Arizona thing, or at least a west coast kinda deal 'cause I haven't run into it anywhere else. Absolutely one of my favorite burgers in town, served in that true to form old fashioned dive bar type vibe that started this whole deal last month. Maybe next month George and Dragon?
Good thing you've got this, don't listen to Bodi the PHX noob!
Wineburger eh? Certainly sounds different, but, hey I'm game for anything.
Let's call it 7:00 pm guys!
7pm works better for me, lets the traffic die off.....
Are we going to try and park the hot rods together or this a soccer mom strip mall type of place with scattered parking?
Na, it's an old bar with parking out front and some at the car wash next door. We'll figure it out!
I'm slammed at work this week getting ready for SWND. I'll give Chip a call when we're "done" and see if you guys are still hangin' around.
GUYS... I have just made one of the larger miscalculations in my life... About a half hour ago, The increadible miss Judy rolled over, blinked one of those almond eyes and said "Happy anaversally"... I knew something was bugging me about this date, but couldn't put my finger on it. Now, I have been accused of having the sensitivity of a sled dog, but I can't ask her to go to Harvey's tonight... That would be bad! Real bad!!! It would mean several years of being yelled at in both Chinese and English, and possibly languages that I don't know even exist. I mean she DOES speak Korean and Japanese as well, and it could possibly be all at the same time.
Here is the deal, I know everybody is out there working and this is a bit last minute, but how about moving this deal to next week? If not, go tonight and lets do it again next week? I simply screwed up the one thing that I was NOT supposed to screw up! Sorry guys...
I think before she become fully concious I'll slip out to Safeway ad peruse their card selection... Pray for me boys!!!
EDIT: Ha! My 5000th post and I'm in trouble!
Happy Anaversally Chip! You are in my prayers.
I think I'll go get a burger without you. I've only got a few days left, and, by design, don't have much food in the cupboards. This will make for one fewer time I'll have to carry that CT70 up a flight of stairs. Good luck on the card hunting!
I can make it tonight and next week too. I should be there by 7:00, in the DD. The brakes on the truck are trying my patience. Happy Anniversary, Mr. and Mrs. Chip!! Trader Joes has really nice, cheap flowers...
I am still planning on getting there about 7pm, look for my yellow '36 roadster.
See you guys there at 7.
Well guys, if it gets any "cool guy" points back for me, I DID suggest harvey's to her for dinner tonight! ...And we'll be going to "Sanctuary" for the evenings celebration! If you have never taken your female of choice there, don't. Increadibly cool, way to expensive, and she'll want to go time and again...
Nice try Chip. I'll be kicking around the rest of the week just looking for truck parts, let me know if you need someone to hold any benches down. If not, see you Saturday. After the Nostalgia Drags you going to be going to Cruisin' Central? You lucked out on it being rescheduled. I had a great time last Saturday considering it was a "cancelled" event.
I'm in Phoenix right now. I think I'll roll my new 61 ranchero up there and pick some brains for ideas! How many folks are coming?
Damn, I just posted on your lowering thread. I can't go tonight and last time around was our first deal of this sort but we ended up with 7 or 8 of us at the joint we went to. If you are in the down town area today or tomorrow, you are welcome to stop by my shop and take a look at the my girls Falcon wagon that I've just reacently dropped for ideas. Give me a yell @ 602 881 0175.
So,,,7 Pm tonight at Harveys??? I may be able to make it.
I'm still in for tonight when we're done workin on these hot rods and I'm sure I can do next week too..
That's the plan at this point! i could probably use some help pulling the body off of the black coupe on Sunday if your still here by then.
you can't be too far from my house. I am North Scottsdale and Dixiletta.
Well, I was on my way to Wineburger last night in the roadster and about 5 miles from my house I lost high gear in the Powerglide, so I had to turn around and head home.
I am dropping the pan today and do another service on the transmission, I had problem with the tranny fluid turning into chucks of a slimey waxy substance which is causing the tranny to down shift at highway speeds ( very scary).
Hopefully this fixes it.
When is the next event in town?
I am at Dynamite and Cave Creek Rd, so we are close......Wana caravan down to the next event?
Nostalgia Drags are tomorrow at Speed World out Grand Ave (hwy 60), and then after that I think Cruisin Central will be pretty hopping.
Hope you get your 'Glide all figured out.
If the Glide starts behavin after this next service, then I will plan to be at Crusin Central.
If you see my roadster, holler at me.
