RALEIGH "CAPITAL CITY" BIKE FEST 2012
« on: August 14, 2012, 04:01:27 pm »
Hey Pope!
Has anyone thought about a meet up during next months Raleigh bike fest?
Wife and I are thinking about spending the day there Sat and possibly getting a local motel for the night.
Might be a good opportunity to get some COG'ers together for the day and have lunch/dinner together.

This is the first that I've heard of this! I'll try to get something going on this. But it will be tomorrow before I can.

Thanks for bring this to my attention!

I've placed this even on the Southeast calender. All of the information that I have on this can be found on the link that Oz posted. So .... take a look and offer up some suggestions as to what you'd like to do.

Buzz suggested - Might be a good opportunity to get some COG'ers together for the day and have lunch/dinner together.

Any other suggestions or recommendations of a place that you'd like to meet?

Pope,
 I'm totally unfamiliar with the RDU area, so best that  I not try to find a place for all of us to eat.
Let's see how many commit to the event and we can plan accordingly.
Shouldn't be to difficult to pick a meet up time/place downtown on Saturday.

Yep, plenty of places to eat down town. It might be something like "Hey, this place looks good and it's not too crouded! Let's eat here!" kind of thing.

Hi all, I'm new to the COG.  It would be nice to meet some fellow COG'ers during the rally.  I live about 5 minutes from downtown and could point you in the direction of some good eats.

So...anybody planning on meeting up next weekend for bike fest?  Haven't seen much movement on this topic.  I was thinking lunch and a small group ride out around falls lake might be nice.  Any takers?  Time?

Hi - I'm new to the group and the proud owner of a new Concours 14. I live about 25 minutes from downtown Raleigh and was planning to attend the Bikefest.

The Pit is a good BBQ spot near downtown (http://www.thepit-raleigh.com/). If you prefer lighter fare, The 42nd Street Oyster Bar (http://www.42ndstoysterbar.com/) has good seafood for dinner only and 518 West (http://www.518west.com/) is an excellent Italian restaurant that is also only open for dinner on Saturday.  An alternative for Sunday is the Flying Saucer (http://www.beerknurd.com/stores/raleigh/) which opens at noon with a light brunch and the best beer selection in town.

Hope to meet some of you there. 
Regards,

Ken

I second the flying saucer recommendation for either Saturday or Sunday.  I take my GF and out Boston terrier there just about every weekend for lunch and pints.  They have a nice patio with shade if needed and an excellent pork belly sandwich.  It would be a great spot for the group to comfortably meet and converse without being too obnoxious to other patrons.

Pope - any ideas on time/day for meet up?

Any of the mentioned places to eat would work for me.

Saturday (anytime) would be better for me, but Sunday (as long as it's after 12 Noon would work).

What would work out best for the rest of you?

Either Saturday or Sunday works for me since I expect to be in town both days. Personally, I vote for the Flying Saucer because 1) I like beer, 2) I like pretty women, 3) The cook makes my favorite chicken wings in the world. How about 12 noon on Saturday?

Ken

Sounds like a plan. Noon at the Flying Saucer it is! I'll get there a bit early and try to grab a table on the patio on the end farthest away from the front of the bar.
