Ride Recap 2016-06-02: Lloyd’s Bar and Grill (Grosse Ile, MI)

Ride leaders. A few things to remember…call ahead and have a Plan B.

On ride day called original restaurant (Sharky’s) to make reservations and got a phone number disconnected message. Hmmm. Checked Yelp… yep restaurant closed. Plan B was a scan on Google Maps for other bar & grills in the area. Quickly found Lloyd’s a short distant way… BBQ

Ride Recap 2016-05-18: Bridgewater Bank Tavern (Bridgewater, MI)

Much discussion and laughter preceded our heading out, and there was even time for someone to play a practical joke on the ride leader – right in front of him, in fact – while he spoke with Target management about the condition of their parking lot.

Ride Recap 2016-04-27: JR’s Pub and Grill (Tecumseh, MI)

With the weather forecast looking a little grim on Thursday I decided, with a little peer pressure, to move the dinner ride to Wednesday.  I believe that this not only increased participation but also made the ride more enjoyable.  As I type up this ride recap I am looking at the rain outside the window and see that it was a good decision.
