*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Where: Sam & Greggs Pizza, 119 Northside Square, Huntsville, AL 35801
Contact: Clint 256-426-7205

We are going to have a little cruise in downtown Huntsville if the weather is favorable. It will around the court house and be based around the Sam & Greggs pizza resturant. They have great pizza, wings, coffee and Gelato (ice cream)

So if the rain holds off we should be a go

A forecast for a cold night had everyone quickly huddled into Sam and Greggs quickly as soon as the sun went down. At 4pm, the courthouse square had pretty open parking. But by 5pm when we had arrived spots were few and far between due to it being the weekend before Valentine's Day. Still, the group I led from the Mitsubishi Meet found several parking spots in the area, and made the short walk to Sam and Greggs where we joined everyone else.

We talked about a regular event here downtown, and if Sam and Greggs was up for it. Clint said they were very happy with the turnout, and said this small meet definitely boosted their business for that time slot, even with the Valentine's Day crowd.

We all know how much a cruise-in downtown will benefit the city, but one of the biggest barriers for events here like the one in Gadsden is the lack of visibility of the over 60 million dollars that car and bike enthusiasts pump into the North Alabama economy, as well as the family friendly atmosphere that is at the core of the enthusiast events in our area. Our challenge as enthusiasts is going to be changing this. And it will take collective effort from everyone in the scene.

A great way to end the evening with a great group of people. See everyone at the next one!

It's only rained once in the last 5 years according to almanac.com, but the temps will be a bit chilly once the sun goes down, so bring a jacket.

Talking

I hope the rain holds off, 'cause I just moved to the area and am very anxious to meet some more gearheads, & see some good cars (& maybe get mine in the mix, too). At this point (Thurs. a.m.) the predictions are for a 60-70% chance of rain Sat. afternoon & evening, & if it is, I won't get mine out -- not that it's that pristine, it's just that I spent TOO MANY HOURS & TOO MUCH ELBOW GREASE GETTING RUST OFF THE THING, & I sure don't want any more coming!

Welcome! And that's completely understandable. I expect a lot of people to just socialize if the weather does pour down.

There's a morning cruise-in that you can go to as well as one Sunday:

I thought the address was in the listing, but I've added it now.

Never parallel parked? Really? Well, the downtown spots are nice and big because no one in Huntsville can parallel park, lol.

If it rains then we might meet on the under side of bridge street and bench race a while. Could meet at at Sam and Gregg's. Eat a bite, Introduce ourselves and then ride over to the underground area at bridgestreet

Thoughts
