i dont know whats out there except peabodys cafe...but thats a karoake joint...this is to gauge interest and see who would like to attend this...seems there is not too much interest out in 29 palms area so maybe a palm springs meet and greet would suffice? post up ideas about a place...

Maybe somewhere in the middle. Pappy in Herriet's in Pioneer town is a great location with great food. I'm always looking for an excuse to head up there.

dude i totally forgot about that place, lets see if we can get more interest in this, if not i think maybe palm springs will have a better attendance! but that is a great idea!

We did a M&G in Palm Desert a couple of years ago. It was well attended but we never could get another one up and going.
Keep it in the eastern end of the valley and I will make it out there.

Iím not too hip on the casino but not because itís a casino. It just seems it would be a bit noisy and a shortage of large table space, especially 29. Also we have a tendency to hang out in the parking lot and BS; before and after. The parking set up could make that a hassle, Fantasy Springs is worse than 29 in that regard.
Either which-where it ends up being is cool with me.

Ahemmm !!! HELLO !!! Y'all forget the Mayor ??
You goofballs are going to plan this when I'm outta town aren't you !!!

If I'm in town I'd be up for about anywhere... if is F'n HOT !!! right now...

Pappy & Harriet's... Pork Chops... mmmmmm NICE

Robbie T's... not bad... SUPER close to me... might work for the parking & wasn't busy the one time I went... a pool table... typical bar fare...

Sonic... too damn hot...

One of the Casinos... might be a little chaotic...

Mike... next time I see you I'm going to take a Hilty gun to your feet... you need to stay in one place... the grass is only greener if you pay someone else to mow it !!!

Palm Springs probably has several places... I'm just not that familiar with that end of the valley... or this end either actually... Mike (Wanderer) might have some ideas... I'll rattle his cage...

Scott Mc might have some ideas closer to P.S. for a night ride... preferable legal....

I really am going to try to put together a trip east of Indio this fall or next spring... really...

Maybe Red. Cyn. for a Sun. drive after a Sat. trip to Hotel California... realitively easy trip a few challenges for a stock rig or a slightly modded rig... maybe a camping trip and then Red Cyn. for those who want a no wheel'n ride with a mine or the likes on Sun. before the ride home.
Y'all don't know how ANGRY I get when I think about what is out there that we can't run anymore.


Hopefully... really... fall or spring...

Hell I'm married with kids... I don't get out...
I'm sure something a long the freeway would be better... easy access...
I don't do the sports bar thing... I'm sure there is something out there...
I was at one time thinking about the pass area... more folks from the west could head east... At the Morongo Casino there was a Ruby's or something like that... I'm not even sure if it's open...

Scott Mc you're in the middle of the valley WAY more then I am... something like a sports bar place... WAIT !!! are there any play offs...
I went to the one up off the 215 the I.E. one during the NBA playoffs... PACKED missed everyone except Justin (Luvdlions)...

I think that if you get 6 or 8 you'll be lucky... after all we are desert billys...
We hibernate in the summer...

I'm in the east valley... don't get out much so I don't have much to offer... sorry...

Pappy & Harriets on a weekend = CHAOS !!! Cool honky tonk... just crazy.

How about a Rubio's ??? I think there's one the P.S.

http://robbietssportsbar.com/ not too hard to find... but not on the I-10 either... and more east end... P.S. would probably be more central...

I don't care cause I don't drink enough to count... but if some want that I'm thinking B.T. doesn't serve sprits... P.& H. would be CRAZY !!! unless it's a week night... are they even open during the week...

I don't care... if I'm around I'll go... parking should be good & easy on & off at Burgertime...

I'm in, possibly with the wife and kids, but probably just me and my four-cylinder Ford as well. Jeep is currently no drivy on roads...;)

P.S. Go ahead and bring the parts. Maybe I'll get around to working on the Jeep at some point... Also, Rick, if you can bring those rock rails, I can bring some money to exchange for them. :D
