Mid-Floriduh RTE, O'steens May 12, 2012
« on: April 30, 2012, 10:28:22 pm »
Time to post up another as the May calendar is looking a might thin.

Kinda thought it would be nice to have an RTE up north a bit, maybe get a visit from the GA Mafia.

This will be at

O'steens Restaurant
205 Anastasia Blvd
Saint Augustine, FL 32080
(904) 829-6974

For those not in the know, this place flat out knows how to cook shrimp. The Datil Pepper sauce ain't bad either.

Let's meet at the cafe at about 11:30, and I'll try to be on time this time.(insert blushing smiley here)

I'll be leaving my house about 9:15, and figure on a break on the way there, for those that want to meet up and ride up. A nice mostly two lane, NO freeway route is anticipated.

St Augustine is a way cool walking friendly(for FLA, anyhow) town. Plan to spend some time just wandering around.

Linky to Yelp on O'steens:

http://www.yelp.com/biz/o-steens-restaurant-saint-augustine

Notes:  CASH ONLY, no plastique.

There will most likely be a line, as this place is quite popular. There is a sign up sheet at the outside window. The intercom also works at the junk antique store next door.

All are welcome, COG, non-COG, tos, h3ll, even Davidsons.

BTW, they will probably have stuff for sale in town for Mother's Day(May 13th).

This will be good.

There is almost never a no line situation at O'steens. I think the last time was less than half an hour. Wife and I went about six months ago, about fifteen minutes. We did volunteer to sit at the counter, that helped. Do count on not getting to a table right away. Iff'n you do get seated right away, it may be a really good day to buy a lottery ticket.

Cool, I'll try harder to be on time this time.

Ya, when Mary & I hit it awhile back we had prolly a ~15min wait. But their chow's so freekin fab...well worth it even for this impatient ba$tard. It's 1 of the best joints in Floriduh IMO.

Hey Paulie, there food does not suck, eh senor?

A couple of notes. I forgot to mention the coffee and bench racing will start at my house about 8:30, allowing plenty of time for tall stories and such before departure at about 9-915.

This will be the last RTE until at least July, unless someone else steps up. I'm going to go play in Arkansas, Minnesnowta, and probably Canuckustan in June.

Just looked at the weather for Saturday, they are calling for dew points in the upper 50's and temp around 80. If this holds true, it's gotta be about the last decent weather we're gonna have for a while. Get out and enjoy.

Leave now Dave   ;D you can make it.

The last RTE their I arrived at 11am, no line at all and I could have walked right in but I waited for the group to show up and by then, well you know.  Send out a point man and see if he can reserve a table for, what, 10 people.

Had a great day!  Good to see everyone.  Sure was some good food.  We left after lunch and went up A1A and stopped at Vilano Beach for a bit.  Watched some kite surfers for awhile and headed on back home.  Thanks again Steve.   :motonoises: :beerchug:

I hate I missed this one too.  I will be having surgery next Tuesday that should cure my abdomen problems for good.  Might be a few weeks before I can ride again, but if all goes as planned, it will be better for the future.  Keep me in your thoughts and prayers guys and girls.
