Wig and Pen

Ok just got off the phone with the manager of wig-and-pen in Iowa City on highway 6 they are set to open on the 1st of Jan so the 17th looks to be a go for a lunch time meet and eat. (as of write now it is written in mudd as he didnt have his calendar but about 95% sure)
1:00PM January 17th

What I could use from all of you is a go or no go vote (just post here with how many will be attending) and getting the word out to all of the MINI and Mini folk in the area.

1st meeting of the year lets all sit down rehash the past and plan for the future over flying tomato pizza!!

I'm in. It'll be good to get back to Wig and Pen, and it's nice that we can give them some business as they get back on their feet.

Brian, at 1 pm on a Saturday they could be busy -- can you see if they'll reserve a table for us, once we have a good count?

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Just talked with owner of Wig and Pen and looks still to be a go but there opening has been delayed 1 week already so we may need to do some last minute shifting but I am sure we can figure something out...

Well, they've got 10 days after that to get their act together. Who knows, we may be among their first customers after re-opening.

Awesome! Can't wait.

I drove Gozer to work today and parked inside our heated building. I am going to check fluids and air. Besides, she needs a little spoiling.

...you must know of some other locals coming. Nice crowd! Great kick-off to the new motoring year.

Hope you're thinking about reservations.

They should gives us the whole restaurant! MINI Mania at the English Pub!

Unfortunately it looks like Lisa and I might not make it, more family issues ensue so we'll just have to play it by ear :(
