Location of meet: We will meet here at the regal cinemas parking lot. They have a parking lot that is further away from the theater that I have yet to see occupied even on the busiest nights. The address is 2651 Fairfield Commons, Beavercreek, OH 45431.

Directions:
From EAST: If you're coming from the columbus area, the quickest route will be to take I70 West until you reach I675. Take that south to exit 17 at North Fairfield Rd. You will want to turn left onto north fairfield road. From here you will go through 4 lights, and at the 5th (Jared's Jewelers on the corner) turn right toward the mall. Make an immediate left onto Fairfield Commons Drive, then pass Red Robin and Fox and Hound pub and grill on the left, taking the first left after the Fox and Hound. From there you will be in the lot

From WEST: Directions are the same except you'll be taking I70 East, durhur :D

From NORTH: I'd imagine I75 will be the quickest way down from Toledo. Once to Dayton, take I70 East for a few miles, then get on I675 South. From here directions are the same.

From SOUTH: I75 North will be your best coice. Once to Dayton get on I675 North. The only difference here will be to take exit 17 and turn RIGHT onto North Fairfield Dr. From here you'll go through 3 lights, and the 4th (Jared's on the corner) Will be your turn into the mall

For some reason the marker on google maps is not correct for the theater, so follow my directions (if you don't have GPS), and the worst case scenario would be that you would just drive on the ring around the mall and you'd eventually find the theater. When closer to the meet I'll PM people my number if they would like the extra security.

FOOD!: We will hop over (could even walk) to Red Robin (although hopping over to Ihop would be funnier). You'll pass by it driving to the meet location, so I'll save myself posting the link. I figure we'll eat whenever the group gets hungry, or if you like we can set a specific time.

I sure hope that the weather cooperates with us. This meet will be the last time my car is driven before winter storage.

Can we add the address into the original post?

2651 Fairfield Commons, Beavercreek, OH 45431

Just makes it that much easier to find, since they have an actual address now :)

Awesome! Thank you!

Cool, that means I may need to put in a reservation at the restaurant if we are a larger group.

By restaurant, you are referring to the Red Robin?

Yes, I was talking about Red Robin not Jeet India.

Thank goodness. WTMI but I have had to make a severe change to my diet recently and don't think that I'm ready for anything exotic.

Salad with no dressing, and boiled chicken for Gramps!





All kidding aside, hopefully you can at least eat relatively normal food. Having to change your diet can really suck.

Idk If I'll make it or not. But the Buffalo wild wings we ate at last time was probably a better eat place for the group. Red Robins isn't big group friendly or for how loud the group can get etc. Just a thought.

We only did Buffalo Wild Wings because it was the only place that would take such a large group in right away.

I'm thinking a reservation for 1 o'clock for 10-15 people should be more than enough.

Any thoughts about going to a different place?

IF I make it... my preference would be for Red Robin over BW3.

As long as the restaurant has something on the menu besides wings...

Besides, if Red Robin is enough to entice OD to make the meet... :D

This is rain or shine, correct? I'll drive the Chevy if it isn't dry next Saturday.

I'll be there rain or shine. The forecast looks good so far, though.

I am not a fan of BW3 either, I'd much rather have anything else.

Red Robin sounds good!

I'll also be there, rain or shine!

I'm not a fan of wings but am all for whichever restaurant will entice OD to attend the meet.

I wouldn't say the choice of food would be the key factor in my showing up. Chances are if I do make it, it won't be in the neon. Probably not going to get parts in time.

I'll have some old and new parts F/S on Saturday. Nothing too elaborate.

I tried to make reservations today but they apparently no longer take reservations :(

Since we are meeting up in the parking lot next door to the Red Robin, it wouldn't be too difficult to check about occupancy just before we go inside. If they don't have the room for us, then we can decide where to go. Since there is a mall nearby, I would imagine that there are other restaurants to choose from.

I won't have time to wash the car so everyone will get to see what has accumulated since the last wash a few months ago. :oops:

I won't be attending. Busy work life. Plus the neon needs work. Fuel pump going out and need to find time to change it out.
