    Cool Western WA 2nd Saturday Meet

    We've been doing this meet for just over a year now and I want to thank everyone who has been coming on a regular basis. It's nice to know that we can count on a regular time and place to get together with like minded people. Thanks to golddigger14s for bumping this up for this month.

    Last month we had just over 20 people for breakfast and 30 at Starbucks. Friday we ran into a guy who remembers us from last months at Starbucks. He said he'll try to make the meet this month.

    Hope to see all of you there!

    Place: IHOP - 178 SW Campus Dr, Federal Way
    Day: Saturday
    Date: 3/12
    Time: 9:00 am

    Followed by:

    Starbucks - 1401 S 348th St, Federal Way @ app. 10 am.

    See you there!

    Anyone ever think that the service was so bad because it's a Denny's?

    Each Denny's we have been to, I do not feel I get the service or the food for what money comes out of my pocket. I would really like to start finding local eateries vs. chains to eat at...there is a local dinner about 15 minutes from there @ Browns Point.

    My issue with Denney's is that the food all tastes the same and you can taste it for days after eating there. Don't know where they get the "grease" but it has a real "after taste".

    I prefer the "local Mom n Pop type restaurants". Food tastes better and the owner is usually there on site.

    A Mom & Pop sounds like a great idea, but I'd prefer to keep it a little further south because most of the people attending come from south of Seatac.

    (sigh) Dont I know it... ;-)

    Guess I need to initiate more meets on the north end. These south meets cost me mucho money in gas and normally take about an hour of travel one way.

    I sympathize with you. Those are the same reasons I started doing the 2nd Saturday meet. Now I can schedule it at a time and place that are at least MORE convenient for me than going to Tacoma or Port Orchard.

    I live in Renton and for the last 2 months I have driven south about an hour to go to the Lakewood meet. C'mon guys, it's only once a month! How else are you going to meet those you converse with on line? I will be at the Federal Way meet Saturday. I guess it depends on how much you want to meet people; I enjoy getting together once a month with you guys, having breakfast together and talking about OC and related topics. Come on out and support OC and your fellow OCers. Last time this year!

    Then they didn't want anyone there at all. It seemed like we were getting the same service as everyone else.

    I will try to make it to this one and will plan on bringing Geoff (yamichi on here, though I don't think he's posted yet).

    Great! Looking forward to seeing you both. Are you coming to the breakfast AND coffee, or just one of them?

    I believe you tried Opie, not the OP.

    Makes no sense to contact Opie. He lives in Virginia, and hasn't posted in two-and-a-half years.
