I've been working on plans for the Spring Ride to Cambria, CA! The dates for 2009 are Saturday and Sunday, May 9th & 10th. I've worked out arrangements for lodging with the BlueBird Inn, our normal haunt, and they are looking forward to having us again (crazy people). I decided to try something different for dinner this year, and am making arrangements with Linn's to host our dinner. The Linn family has had their restaurant in Cambria for years and makes wonderful food and some of the best pies on the planet. The Olallieberry pies are my favorite! Also, the local tavern, Mozzi's, has finally reopened with live music and even better beer on tap than before! As always there are great shops, art galleries, etc., to explore once you get to town, as well as some of the most beautiful coastline in California.
Here are the details I have so far -
Lodging - The BlueBird Inn - 800-552-5434
To make reservations for Saturday night, 5/9, please call the BlueBird and tell them you are with the David Taylor BMW Group. They have a variety of room choices and have given us the following pricing -
- Standard Room, One Queen Bed - $88
- Standard Room, Two Double Beds - $110
- Standard Room, One King Bed - $110
- Standard Room, Two Queen Beds - $120
- Deluxe Room, One King or Two Queens - $160 (these have garden and creek views, balconies or patios, and fireplaces)
- Deluxe Suites - One King Bed - $200 (Has separate living room, creek and garden view, fireplace, etc.)
They are taking reservations now, so feel free to sign up! The cut-off date for the rooms and rates will be April 10th. After that any remaining rooms will be made available to the public and go back to regular price.
Dinner - Linn's
Dinner will be at 6:30 p.m. Saturday night at Linn's. This will be a sit-down affair instead of the buffet, and I am working with Aaron Linn on the menu for our group. They have a broad variety of great foods, and their pot pies, meat loaf and fruit pies are the staples that helped make their name. They also have great steaks specials for dinner quite a bit of the time. I'll provide more information on this as it gets closer to the date.
Once you get your room reserved please add your name to the attendee list on BMWLT.com in this thread in the NorCal forum
so I can get a headcount for dinner. If you don't have or want to open an account there just PM me and I'll add you to the list.
I'm really looking forward to the ride and seeing all of you again, and hopefully meeting some new folks as well! We've had great fun on this ride over the years so come on out and join us for a good ride and good times!
I hope to see you there!
