    Are we still meeting at Jimmie's or are we switching to the Dark Horse Tavern over on Washington?

    I like the Dark Horse although I have no fucking idea how the parking arrangements will work unless we park out back.

  11. Long haul on a school night.
     
  12. I'll miss this one, why were you thinking of changing from Jimmy's?

    Switching from Jimmies got brought up last month. I guess the regulars don't like us parking our cars there or something. I don't know. I went down to the Dark Horse afterwards and I like it. My only concern would be parking and like John said...I like to stay near the cars.

    Right now my buddy and I are planning on doing the rod run as well as show up for the HAMB meet. Going to be a long day...unless it's cold then i'll only make the HAMB meet.

    I'm planning on making Lucky's run then Jimmies
     
  18. As far as Dark Horse; never been there, but if it's not an "Icehouse" style place, where you can carry your beer in and out and check out the cars, count me out. I don't care to sit on a barstool all day, I'd rather be in the garage. Wow, I can't beleve I just typed that.

    P.S. Some of us, like Kyle, are under age, or have their kids with them, and can't/don't want to hang out in a bar. Jimmies' is nice with the picnic tables and BBQ pits, more family-friendly.

    Richard, we all like Jimmy's but what Brad is saying is that Jimmies no likey us.

    The Dark Horse is on Washington, and would be very limited on parking and its on a busy street. I dont have a better solution at this point just saying...
     
  20. It sounds like there is a story I'm missing here. I left a bit early last month, but I thought everybody was cool. The bartenders came over talking to me about my beater car. Was it last month that 1/2 the parking lot was a mud pit?

    We could all start meeting at Richard D's...he has an endless supply of beer
     
  22. Just that the parking lot was getting a little crowded with non-H.A.M.B. folks. Les suggested Dark Horse, maybe we need to address that again, check the place out.
     
  23. Hell yeah, and an endless supply of projects.
     
  24. I never got that impression...they have always been polite, and seemed to like my money...:confused:

    Well alrighty then.

    As long as we're all in agreement that we're meeting somewhere where there's beer and parking I'm good. We've had a good run at Jimmie's and nobody has said anything negative to me. And other than the guy whose truck we leaning on that day...I don't think anyone has had any issues?

    I'm not real aware of any other ice houses nearby where we can take the beer outside to the cars.
     
  27. Drew-hope you make it, I'd like to see the '37, and talk DMV stuff.
