Riders,

Post 91 has invited us to their ride tomorrow for those who would like to make it.

Going on a breakfast/brunch run this Sat. Jan. 31.
Going to the "Hammered Hog" on 32nd St. and Cactus.

Meet at post 91 at 10:15 a.m.

KSU is 10:30 a.m.

Scott Hurler and Bill Wehrle have other commitments and can't make this one. How about you?


If you buy a large drink (not alcohol) you get a modest breakfast for free. I believe it is 2 eggs, hash browns and toast but not sure. Their menu prices are very reasonable and they are noted for their barbecue.

This place is around the corner (well, almost) from 117 so I think a stop there would be in order. We can discuss other stops, if any, at breakfast. Hope to see you there.

FWD:
Ironbutt
Road Captain

(((THANKS POST 91)))
