An old friend of mine owns a restaurant called the Yellow Basket in Santa Ana. It's similar in style to the Lucky Greek--has a huge menu (including legit Greek gyros, burgers, etc) that's reasonably priced & yummy.

Because of its central location in OC, I thought it might work well for a bike night. Is there any particular week day that works best for the majority? What time would you want it to start? It's possible I can get us a "show your helmet" discount too so that even the impoverished can EAT (cuz that's what bike night are all about, right, Eddiemon?? ;D)

Toss out some ideas & let's see if we can get a weekly or twice a month bike night going that's convenient for lots of members!  :17: :3: :27: :31: :17:

I'm not allowed out on a work night  :(


I kid. Actually, I'm open to most any night but my work schedule is very dynamic so what evening I have available can change daily but I'm all for it.

sounds like a fantastic idea.  I love the Yellow Basket, used to go there when I was in High School.

I'd be interested to go now that the weather isn't so dark.  But I work in San Clemente and usually get out between 5-6pm.  So if traffic isn't hell I can probably make it.  Wed or Thur works best.

Thanks for organizing this Stella  :7: Thurs or Fri is best for me.
I normally work long hours but I'll make it happen and bail out early to be there.
