Tuesday, Oct 06th Ride and Dine in Stratford

29 posts in this topic

Since no one else has made any suggestions for the next little adventure of the London and area Smarts, I'll offer up the following.... :D

The time for October's outing is fast approaching, and there was some discussion and suggestion at the Lambeth Harvestfest parade about

an early fall ride to Stratford and a get-together at the Boar's Head Pub in the Queen's Inn Hotel. We were there exactly 2 years ago and

everyone enjoyed the food and beverage selection. Link to info, directions and menus.... http://www.queensinnstratford.ca

Tuesday seem to be the day-of-choice lately, so I'd like to start a sign-up list for the next Smart night out.

I thought the October meet two years ago was at Bill's favourite restaurant...The Phoenix... south west corner of Bradley & Ernest. ;)

You're right Rod. The October 03/07 outing was in London. It was September 05/07 we took the trip to Stratford.My bad. :rolleyes: ps - The Phoenix was not then, is not now and will never be on my Top 100 Restaurants list. I think we all remember it.

Remember, as bonus to being in Strarford, we'll be less than 2 blocks from the Rheo Thompson Candy store (and those mint smoothies....yum!!).

They're only open till 5:30.

Maybe we could organize a Smart club quantity purchase? :P

I was just kidding Bill but to add insult to injury they didn't even dispense that fine beverage..... "Golden Nectar of the Gods" sometimes referred to as Beer.

PS The 2007 October meet @ "The Phoenix" was first Smart meet I ever attended.....and then it went all down hill after that. :winkgrin:

So, sign up already and we'll see if we can maintain that great level of entertainment we've all come to expect. :P

Sorry :( that we will miss this one. We will be in Tennessee heading towards Raleigh, NC, for a conference. Don't forget about Chocolate Barr's nearly across the street from the Boar's Head. They also have really delicious gelatos, as well as great chocolates that are made right there. Also on the way into Stratford, there is Tea Leaves, for those tea afficionados in the gang. We were at both places yesterday. Yum!All the best,~~~ Alberta & Cliff

I was just posting in the mod lounge that I just bought a new car - a 2010 jetta tdi! And then I saw that something is happening rather close to where I live and thought I'd see if you'll still let me come even though I'll be driving a jetta... :P I won't park near all the smarties :) I will hide.1.

It was great to see the dragon if even for such a short time. I think everyone enjoyed the food and many of us took Bill's advice and stocked up on chocolates on the way to the pub!The only one missing was Duck- maybe he decided to go play in the rain? :rolleyes:
