For the record. I've never hit on you. That's all Trey.




So far Boone has given good places, I guess maybe the usual. But we also need a place that let's us be free to be loud and obnoxious.

I don't know, might just be freebirds again the people that want to this for us are being very generous. So want to have something where a lot of is can get together.

If not FreeBirds, similar.

Mexican restaurant.



So I'm unclear here....step up the hitting on you?? Bc besides the "yeah ride naked!" comment (i ride naked), I haven't had my shot yet. Jk.

This is unfair!

But if you need chicks to hit on you for a change....I've met a lot of lesbians at dance halls in Houston. I'm the man to talk to.

Yeah. Definitely not.

This is a hang out outside type thing. If the service didn't suck I would say Vito's deck house.

So are you doing a central meet next week for sure? If so i won't do a SE meet and well come there. Keep it at Freebirds. I honestly hate the food and don't eat there when I go but the venue and location is great. No waitresses, no issues with ordering food and drinks with separate checks. Enough parking for everyone and a big space for slow races.

Pretty much, you just can't beat that.

I was approached by generous sponsor, will speak to them tonight to see what they have in mind and will know for sure.

So far TMAX is making a good case for the usual, I've seen their lot, looks like a lot of room.

Y'all don't have a clue. JUST GO CHECK IT OUT. Football field sized parking lot across the street. Maybe 30 spot lot on the building.... Here's the view....incredible food and drinks. Freebirds straight up sucked. THE PORCH IS 10x20

I'm not biased. Everyone who came out unanimously decided.


Lets all meet there Sunday night and see if you guys, the royalty, approve.....

I wouldn't suggest it after going back an forth on places with Ivan if it wasn't the best option.

Seriously though, freebirds doesn't have a bar. Tiny food selection. Parking actually was crammed and sucked. And then to for everyone on the "outdoor" patio took the efforts of the Chinese jamming into a subway. It is pretty much everything you described a place shouldn't be.....

Again, you don't have a clue man! Why don't y'all go and see for yourselves....or continue to follow blindly. Not being a , I just think this is silly that you guys seriously think FreeBirds is the best option.

Yea it was 5 of you lol! You need to ask them if its ok to have 50 people stand around the parking lot with beer. That might not even be their parking lot. And if they have waitresses it is worst especially with 50+ people going. Will they also allow us to do the slow races? Its allot to factor in fir a big central meet.

It's not about being royalty, it's about what makes sense. I dunno, I mean we've only done about 17 or so central meets and about 14 of those were at FreeBirds and I never really heard much complaints about space. But anyways, I asked for suggestions so I'm considering the ones that makes sense.

If distillery works, it works. Has anyone spoken to the management and asked these questions?

Like Chris said, about 5-10 people is different from about 50-70. Not to mention tabs, waitress, food orders and things like that in volume. Things to consider. FreeBirds though not perfect, had an assembly line style of ordering food so there is no confusion and it's more efficient.

Another consideration is that it is right off the freeway and easy to find. Convenience for everyone. I thought I read that someone couldn't find it. So that is one out of 5-10, now think of an even bigger number that gets confused and frustrated and just decides it. Cuz ain't no way I'll be sitting there texting and taking calls from everyone that gets lost.


But again. All good suggestions and now we just have to do pur homework, no sense in anyone getting all passionate about their place, so relax, Honey badger, we all know you don't give a .

Keep the suggestions coming.

Ok. The service was INCREDIBLY fast. It is half a block off 45 at downtown....

The food trounces Birds. They have a huge bar. Maybe 12 beers on tap. So above mentioned should have your vote Ivan. dude lets go tonight.
