    Default Whacky Wednesday

    Ok Gauteng guys and gals, what do you think about a mid month meet up, have something to eat and meet old and new faces and wind down towards the weekend?

    Seeing as we are bikers we don't mind to spend thousands on our bikes, but when it comes to meals we eat cheap. The idea is to meet up at a Steers once a month (every month will be a new venue) on a Wednesday after work, so either come directly from work or go home and fetch your SO and come join us for a whacky Wednesday or whatever you want to eat....even it's just a cup of coffee

    We will change the venue every month so that everyone is not too inconvenienced by the distance and we all get a chance to "ride". The reason for a mid month meet up is so that we don't hit the end-of-month-payday-rush-for junk food and have to wait for ever to get our food.

    To keep it as simple as possible only 3 rules apply:

    1) Arrive by cage or bike but just be there!
    2) No alcohol to be consumed!
    3) All those attending chip in with some small change from their wallets and we buy a homeless/needy person a meal.

    Unofficial rules:

    1) Arrive with your spots/brights/running lights on - So those who arrived before you can see what they eating
    2) The louder your exhaust the better - To wake up the kitchen staff and get your order on the grill before you even off the bike
    3) Number plates optional - Depends if you intend to skip on paying for your meal
    4) No burnouts in the parking lot - Some of us don't like our food tasting like burnt rubber

    One day it must be a Thursday. There is a sushi bar around the corner from my office that does 30% off platters on a Thursday. It's epic.

    how about the steers at shell garage in Midrand - I was thinking the same thing. Lots of parking and probably won't be too busy as they not a mainstream outlet

    A TB initiative but not limited to TB members

    Maybe a mod can move it to the TB events thread?

    Next month will be the 16th, which is a public holiday, school holidays etc etc. If everyone is happy we can make it for the 16th. or move it forward to the 9th if the public holiday is a problem.
