Can picture it now, JoAnne standing down in the entrance to T5 where they'll feed the cars on..........making it somehow obvious she'd like to ride along with a single.

(Random thought, but this event would be so much better if it were at Sears..........)

Thanks Ed, I didn't read it all the way through. I just click and ordered.

There are other places in town with bigger lots and food that is just as good, I'm sure we could find somewhere for a GTG.
+1. Maybe a "RL only" spot would be better and easier. I DO like the idea of a patio, though. If Mother Superior drafts up the weekend's party spot schedule, I'm pretty sure that the RL 993 boys will follow. Other options might be: Baja Cantina, Mission Ranch, Henry's BBQ and Village Fish House.

We have done Tarpy's a couple of times at the historics. The last time I went in '09 I kinda told myself never again-the parking sucks big time.

I'll throw out an option for a RL dinner, although it's a little bit of a drive (oh darn... we HAVE to use the cars???).

There's a Mexican/Seafood place in Moss Landing called the Whole Enchilada - right on Highway 1, near the shadow of the power plant stacks. They recently (a few years ago) expanded their "empire" to include a fruit stand & coffee shop, etc. (in addition to the Biker bar that shares a wall with the restaurant). In doing so, they expanded the parking area a fair amount behind such that getting a bunch-o'-Porsches parked together without intervening minivans would be pretty easy.

Food is pretty good, as are the margaritas. That also can be a negative as it's probably a 14-mile drive or so back to Monterey.

Anyways, something to consider. They have a section of the dining room that could easily accommodate a good-sized group, especially if we're there on a Thursday.....

Is that the one by Phil's Fish House?

I am up for it.

Do you need fancy accommodations or is a motel okay for you?

So far we are all over town.

PM coming your way....

That's what happened the last time we ate there in '09. The parking was so bad we said never again. Place is great, food is great, everyone wants to go there (and that's the problem). The parking SUCKS. Too bad they can't get along with the shopping center next door. All those signs that say you will be towed away if you park there and go to Tarpy's are very unfriendly.


I like the idea of going to the place in Moss Landing, but after a day at the track, wouldn't it be nice to just shower (PLEASE SHOWER!!!!) and find a place central to town so everyone can go and get there on time? Just thinking out loud guys..... I do that a lot.
Hmmm....Maybe we CAN do Moss Landing on Thursday for the Early birds? It's not that far out of town. No different really than going to Carmel Valley.
It does sound like a great place. Let's plan it there for tentatively for Thursday. I trust you since you live there. Do you think it would be crowded on Friday or Saturday?

Henry's BBQ? haven't been there before? Where is that? How's the parking?

I'm in for the Rennsport Reunion IV

I would also recommend the Baja Cantina instead of Tarpy's.
