I've been speaking with Galo this evening and taking all things under consideration, I'm thinking about a change in Restaurants. Galo has ate in "Alibi's" in the area of our hotel. It's about a mile from the hotel and has a bar and he says good food. I just got off the phone with them and they were very accommodating to us if we want to use them. I like the idea that it's close to the hotel too. Anyway, I'm going to post links to the both restaurants and chime in and let me know what you think as I want to wrap up this loose end by Friday/Saturday at the latest.

This is where we currently have reservations, no bar and about 10 miles from the hotel, I'm estimating.

This is Alibi's, about a mile from the hotel, has a bar, and Galo says the food is pretty good as he's ate there.

Please feel free to post your thoughts, I want everyone to take a peak. Right now I'm leaning towards Galo's recommendation. But I'd like to hear from as many as possible that's going. I want us all to enjoy our time together! Also, when you post, let me know if you're just going to be there to eat, you and a guest/spouse/significant other/or anything I might have missed! (in other words, how many in your party for dinner!)

Thanks, Fast

I vote for the change, I've been told the Steer inn is in decline from its hey day, and a cold beer after the drive would really hit the spot!

I'm good with recommendations based on experience. On the bar thing, I'll guess we'll see. LOL, the bar sounds like a necessary option to me!

Gallo said he found the bar first...then how does he know about the food????? wink/bump
Two "L's"? Hey JJ, this is where(Alibi's) Melinda and I took you and Cath on your drive-thru, remember?

And I've not had ONE alcoholic drink when I've eaten there...not ONE ;);)

Oh fd, I've been thinking about this since we talked. I'm probably going to join in on the drive...and I'll try to talk my wife into joining me/us. I think it's a good idea to have someone who is very familiar with the route. Webeinky can confirm this, as he and his better 1/2 took part in the '11 SLK meet.

Heck, Jeff, I thought it was funny! JJ and I are Buds, and we get a kick out of digging each other a bit.

You da' Man, Jeff!!!

Also, fd, I'll even pre-run the route to make sure there is no road construction going on. It does happen as the state keeps 43(and the other state roads) in VERY good condition.

I'm in for seeing everyone and driving, as long as there's a double scotch in there somewhere before the end of the day! :)

Close to the hotel sounds good to me as well. A few beers after the drive does have some appeal also. :Beer: Humm... Maybe I will let my bride drive the last leg back to the hotel

Ya, funny how that worked out isn't.

Galo, if this drive is anything like the one you put on then trust me we will both be drinking a lot. R) LOL
It's the first part, from McCormick's Creek, South on 43, but not all the way to the break location, then back .
I promise I won't drive that fast...honest ;)
