Google maps still thinks it is called "The Shed."

I just looked again and now it also has Mannyscafe at the same address. :lol:

That was not there last night or this morning. Did one of you guys get that in there?

The meeting at Manny's Cafe was a rousing success, except for the unfortunate absence of one dislocated member who made a last minute decision to attend and tried to come, but hadn't followed the series of posts on change of venue. We missed his participation and hope to see him next time.

As C-dub said, we had nine attendees, the food was fantastic and the service was excellent. We had a very warm welcome from the staff,there was no conflict with seating other diners or rush to finish up, and the location in the stove shop with lots of antiques and cool wood burning stoves, fire pits, windmills,old tools, etc. lent a unique ambience to the gathering. Open carry by most of the members didn't raise a single eyebrow, and there were no grumpy wait staff like we had last time at Cracker Barrel

Everyone agreed that we'll definitely be going back to Manny's for the August meeting on the 17th.

Thanks to everyone who came for making this a rousing success!
And the chairs were more comfortable than Rudys! Thanks for scouting this out and for coordinating! :tiphat:
My pleasure!

And +1 on the chairs.

The 9 of us that attended this past Saturday: Excaliber, jusme, C-dub, hackjob, diesel42, SigM4, strogg, bitterclinger, and myself.

Since this has been our highest attendance in quite some time, shall we return to Arlington Rudy's in July, or give Manny's another shot?

Due to my alternating weekend schedule it won’t be possible for me to make the S/SW breakfast again until October.

If I can make it in October I’ll just check here and see where y’all are gonna be.

I'm all in for Manny's if everyone else agrees.

If not, I'll see you folks in August.

We'll miss you over the summer but will look forward to seeing you more in the fall and winter.

I wanted to attend your last meeting, but figured it was too far for me to drive for breakfast. It would have been nearly a 50 mile drive one way.(100 mile roundtrip) If you decided to have it at Rudy's BBQ in Arlington, that's a go for me. I know I'm a new guy here, and I don't dictate where the majority want's to have your meeting/breakfast. Just throwing my info out there for you why I didn't show for the last breakfast. Would love to be part of this group but, I have never driven 100 miles for breakfast before although I'm sure I would've had a great time. just sayin...I know also if you had it at Rudy's in Arlington that someone else might be in my shoes. I'm good with whatever you all do to get the most people there. I probably don't rate very high on the list yet, but if I can make it to wherever you guy's are, i'll try and make it if I can. Thanks.

It's about the same distance for me either place, so I'm good with whatever the majority want to do.
I like the idea of alternating, we probably just need to communicate a little better with everyone, so no one goes to the wrong place.

65 miles one way for me. And it was WELL WORTH IT! :cheers2:

But I was getting about 40mpg. :mrgreen:

Here's another thought:

Those western members who have decided not to make the drive to Arlington could meet at Manny''s every month since that wouldn't be conflicting with those who would meet at Rudy's.

Your thoughts?

If I remember correctly, and that's pretty "iffy" :mrgreen:, the original intent was to get multiple groups meeting in different areas. I certainly see no reason not to have both Rudy's Arlington and Manny's Weatherford breakfast get togethers, but have them on different Saturdays so those who want to go to multiples have 3 choices a month! Then perhaps once a quarter or semi-annual have a breakfast where all the groups meet together.

I think it would be great to grow the forum breakfasts until we have many groups across North Texas.

That's an even better idea.

How about Manny's every second Saturday and keep Rudy's on the third Saturday?

The DFW North/Northwest group meets on second Saturday. How about 1st or 4th Saturday?
