    We need a return of the Friday all-inclusive Twin Cities meet. University Ave car enthusiast scene is all but dead now due to the light rail and Porky's shutting down. We need a new location that is near the old Firestone hangout that can hold some cars and in a safe fun location.

    This thread will serve to toss around some location suggestions.

    We would stick to the old format of "around 7PM on Friday" like Firestone was.

    Also, +2 bonus intarwebs points to anyone who has parking lot/building owner contacts in the area so we can get their blessing, and bring that blessing into a conversation with St. Paul PD.

    Ninja Edit: Also, also - Stickied.

    My work Parking lot is good for secluded little meets. No eye candy or entertainment tho to speak of. It is close to everybody's favorite one way road system...

    LOL Don't be silly you were no where near on my mind when I posted this. I was thinking about how young I was when I started coming out on Fridays to hangout w/the crew. You know if I was gonna take a swing at you it'd be in person ;) Jet Li and all.

    I look forward to a speedy resolution to this problem!

    LOL. Crouching tiger, coffee chugging jackass. I don't think it'd make a very good movie, as I don't think I have the motivation to really defend myself against some wicked martial arts business.
    You're old enough now. Don't worry, we don't card anyone :p

    Remember when Fuji got carded by the cop @ Firestone.... after doing a drop gear, turbo spool, pull into the parking lot.

    "is this your sisters ID?"

    Let's get some more suggestions on location. Firestone could work in the mean time, but we need something more permanent.
    As discussed in the Shoutbox, alot of what made Firestone fun was the car watching, people watching, and the 'being seen' element.
    Honestly, I don't care so much about being seen by other people as I do about having a cool spot to park, meet and greet, and maybe grab decent food if you're hungry.
    I suggested an overflow lot at the Target on Uni east of Snelling. But that may be a bad location as there is a police station nearby. And while we may be good dudes as a group, they may not appreciate us congregating on that lot even if we're behaving.
    Any ideas are welcome.

    The goodwill parking lot down the street right off of UNi might be a good location, but would require some convincing.

    I've never been. Anyone else on board? I might just head back to Shakopee if there's little to no interest.

    Yeah, I didn't go to Uni due to the rain. Next weekend I'll be at the same wedding as Tony is. But the weekend after that, we can plan to meet at the old Firestone lot and see what happens.

    Am I having a bit of déjà vu? Seems to me we had a very similar thread to this last year, and nothing ever got started. Just like we tried to change the Calhoun meet last year LOL.

    Anyway, I don't typically go to the Friday meets, but if something gets started, I would probably make an appearance once in a while!

    That's the plan. There is buy-in from a good handful of "old school" members this time around, and we're sidestepping the issues that caused problems last year.

    I want to say it was a couple years ago? I think it was Como park back then. I actually remember there being a decent number of people the first few times. Surly and I got into some Shenanigans with Fuji if I recall. I think it was the following week Fuji, Nuke and I were eating on University and some guy got jumped in the middle of the road. Nothing like seeing 15 people fleeing the scene of a crime, lol.
