    Greetings.

    I checked the Cool River website, and they're claiming $50+ for dinner there. Personally, that's a bit pricy for a happy hour in my opinion. Those who went to the Dec one there, is that price accurate?

    As always, I'm open to suggestions. This is your club, your gathering -- what do you want to do?

    Cool River has a large bar area that is seperate from the dining room. You can hang out in the bar all night (which we did) and never see the dining room at all. They have plenty of appetizers at reasonable prices.

    I can't go this month, will be in San Diego.

    IMHO the best thing that could happen is if a new karting place would open up.

    Besides that Happy Hours can move around to please everyone. I typically eat at the Tuesday events. Cool River, D&B, Humperdinks have pretty good food. Speedzone not so good, but I will eat anything. :)

    Cool River is more expensive, but that shouldn't deter anyone from stopping by for a drink and saying hi. I think most people will show up regardless of where you go, except maybe Wolfgang's place. ;)

    Let's try BoneDaddy or Sam Gibbins’ Smoke Pit barbecue !

    Or Nobu at the Crescent is pretty convenient. It has a good parking, a nice bar, and if you want to eat but not like Japanese, there're more nice restaurants in the area.

    Any places in Addison is convenient. I just don't know about parking situation though during happy hours.

    Something in Addison would probably get me out to join you. There are also some fun places in the Shops of Legacy in Plano.

    Ok, sounds like a plan.

    Cool River, 6:30 or so, Thursday the 9th. I understand the place is valet-only, if I can get a hard count on exotics I'll see if I can reserve some spots

    I am a maybe. If I do make it, I'll be driving a Cayman S. I'm picking one up that afternoon for an overnight test drive.

    (I'm leaving my F-car with the dealer to put on new rear tires. Are you happy now, Jim?)

    Tillman- I've eaten dinner at Cool River a couple of times - they let me self-park without a problem. I always give them a good tip for giving up the space.

    I'll sit at the bar with you. I can never seem to make it on Tuesdays so since this one is a Thursday, I don't have a conflict.

    Will try to make one of the "gatherings" soon. Stuck in Houston till late Thursday. If I am back early... I'll try to make it... Most likely will be the next "first Wednesday" Lunch in March.
    Jim, Notice the "user name" change? Thanks to Rob for that.
    Regards, Tom

    I might make it. What's the easiest was to come from the great bustling metropolis of Saginaw, TX?

    Easiest way for you would be to take 820 East to 183 East and then go North on MacArthur. It will be on your right at the corner of MacArthur and Hidden Ridge.
