West LA Drive/Lunch location

    OK, we had almost 16,000 views on the last West LA Lunch thread in just about 6 months. That's a high number for the same 10-12 guys showing up. Where are the rest of you lookers lurking? Come out and join us for a drive and lunch!

    When we started out, we were meeting at a restaurant somewhere in West LA however the consensus has been that we prefer a little drive with our lunch so for the past several months we have started with a short drive from West LA up the coast to somewhere in the Malibu area. Until a consensus change, that will most likely continue. We have met at Duke's Malibu 3x's and once at the Malibu Road House.

    It was suggested to start a new thread so here it goes. The next lunch gathering is set for Friday, May 29th. There was a suggestion last time to make Dukes the regular location. We can do that or find somewhere new. Location suggestions welcome. Only requirements are that it must have ample self parking and preferable will take a group reservation. The poll will stay open for 10 days so we can set the next lunch location.

    Let the suggestions begin!

    I avoid West LA because of 405 traffic coming from the Valley. If there's a meet in Malibu I'm in (depending on schedule).

    Bumping the poll. 134 views but only 3 votes (other than mine) so far. I'm not feeling the love here.

    Typical for this thread. 425 views but only 16 total votes.

    In any case, its looking like the "mix it up in Malibu" is the clear winner. Dukes will continue to work into the rotation maybe every 3rd month or so.


    I'm open for a suggestion for this Friday. Absent that, I'll just pick a location and post it tomorrow (Wednesday).

    Voted for "Life's too short. Let's mix it up but keep a drive in Malibu!" - During the times I can get out for lunch in the Scuderia, something in/close to Malibu is going to work better than something deep down on the west-side. :)

    OK. Mixing up in Malibu won the poll so this Friday, May 29th we are rotating back to:

    Casa Escobar Malibu Beach
    22969 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu, CA 90265

    We were at the Casa last January and both the parking and food was great.

    Plan to meet at the restaurant at 1:00 pm OR meet us for the 'unofficial" group drive starting in Brentwood on San Vicente Boulevard west of Gretna Green (2 blocks west of Bundy) at 12:30 for a drive up the coast together.

    I made reservations for 10, so please add your name to the list if you are planning to join us so I can make adjustments if necessary.

    We has a small, but no less diminished group, for our lunch at Casa Escobar last week. It was a perfect day for a drive up the coast and lunch. Casa Escobar is at the old Malibu Inn, directly across the street from the pier.

    Plan on joining us in June for another drive and lunch. We had been considering the 26th but seeing that several of us will be on the FCA Malibu lunch run on the 27th, I am leaning toward the 19th instead unless there are any major objections.

    We are checking on some locations with good parking and should have the location announced next week. It doesn't really matter to me so I am starting the list now.

    I liked Casa Escobar. Nice place and comfortable food. Parking was manageable, or we were lucky to get grouped up.
    For June 19- I am a yes
    Peter, I called the Reel Inn, they have no valet on Friday and we can self park (just need to be south of the big motel sign). Also, the lot is bigger than it looks.
