EIM Meet-n-Eat at the Backpocket Brewing Co., Coralville -- 7/11

A simple, relaxing Meet-n-Eat to fill the gap between the Re-Skirmish and the Mack. We will plan on meeting there a bit early (~10:30) for an 11:00 am lunch start. There is metered street parking (preferred, to show off our cars), an adjacent ramp, and a gravel lot out back.

Our group has the German Beer Hall Tables in the Taproom reserved for our exclusive use (see the pic below). If we exceed the capacity (~28) folks can spill over into the general seating or the outdoor tables if it's a nice day.

Much appreciated if you let us know you're coming by sending an email to [email protected] -- thanks!

Check out the link below for the food and libation menus.

Minis and a brewery? Sounds like a winner to me!

Hope to make it up to show off the new Laurel, I will let you know for sure after the 4th as we are on vacation.

Angel and I will have to be out for this. Isn't the Parade in Holy Cross coming up around the same time? Are we still doing that this year?

Here's a link to the Flickr pics I posted over on FB...

Nice to see so many folks brave the morning raindrops to join us. The adjacent ramp turned out to be a good spot to gather and to watch miniturns put his radio controlled #37 through its paces. That thing was fast!

Enjoyed meeting please_remain_calm and his cool Laurel Edition MINI, not to mention JayTom's rad R56 JCW. And thanks to M1N10N and daughter for the icing on the (cup)cake idea!

I really enjoyed visiting with everyone!

As I left the parking ramp, the gal that took my money said how she liked my car and that I was dressed to match. Kind of made my day

Had a great time!
We enjoyed seeing everyone.
The car museum was only topped by the scratch cupcakery!
