First ride of the year - 1-1-2014
« on: December 17, 2013, 01:10:37 pm »
I have been going to this restaurant for the past 10 years on New Years day and decided to make it into a COG RTE. 

Here are the details:

Jan 1, 2014
Time 11:00 meet and greet, 11:30 sit down for lunch.  This place draws over 300 bikes so come early to avoid long wait times.
Place: Benton Lee's Steak House, Uvalda, GA
http://www.bentonleessteakhouse.com/
Check out the map location on their website as the restaurant isn't in Uvalda but out in the sticks on the river.

https://www.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=138+Benton+Powell+Rd+Uvalda,+GA+30473&fb=1&geocode=3453850168161429906,31.964348,-82.421603&cd=1&ie=UTF8&om=1&hq=&hnear=138+Benton+Powell+Rd,+Uvalda,+Toombs,+Georgia+30473&ll=31.97044,-82.422438&spn=0.098442,0.153637&z=13&source=embed

This place serves great, BIG steaks, usually the small is large enough.  :great:  They also have a lot of different fare if you aren't into steaks. Check out their menu.

I hope to see you there, hangover and all   ;D

It is on the COG SE calendar now:

Thinking....... :-[

 Three long rides in five days sure would be a good way to end 2013 and start 2014 off right. Oh, and steak sounds like a winner.  Maybe/probable/hopeful

There will be 3 of us from Savannah coming in.  Jean will be on call for work so she will not be able to make it.

Reid, see you and Thomas Mann there.

Good thing you stayed at home.  It was 46 and raining at my house and I decided to stay home after talking with Reid. Since we were the only two going we cancelled it

Doesn't surprise me.

I was really hoping to get something done, but I woke up at 600a and it was already raining.

So, I knew the car repair wouldn't happen as I don't have the garage space to get it in out of the rain.

I don't mind riding in the rain, but lying on my back in a wet driveway getting rained on is not my cup of tea.

She doesn't need to drive it until Saturday, so we'll just do it then.
