August 2009 - DFW Yaris Yak

Howdy folks,

August is just around the corner and it's time to start figuring out what's happening for the month and where we could meet up for another Yaris Yak. If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to reply to this message or to PM me with the info to get it listed.

I don't see any holidays for the month of August on my calendar so it's all up for grabs. I've listed a few events that are happening around the area and provided links to each event's website or web page.

If you'd like to host a Yaris Yak, speak up. :) I'm sure we can find a few people to come by and eat all your food, drink all your drinks and cause problems with the local law enforcement agency.

Also, please feel free to suggest a drive-in diner in your area for us to meet at. Keller's has a couple of good locations in Dallas where we've been to before. I love the drive-in experience for a Yaris Yak since it's a relaxed way to hang out and enjoy some good eats and drinks.

August 1st & 2nd: OPEN

August 6th: !!!NST!!!

August 7th: Scion Drag-n-Brag at Texas Motor Speedway 6pm-11pm

August 8th & 9th:
8th - Midnight Madness - 9pm-Midnight (local fund raiser for 2 groups)
8th & 9th - 2009 Yellow Rose Classic Car Show - Will Rogers Memorial Center, Ft. Worth, Tx

August 11th: Yeah, my mistake. Mike from NST caught this and corrected me. There is nothing planned in Houston on this date.

August 15th & 16th: OPEN

August 22nd & 23rd:
22nd - Best Of The Best Car Show
23rd - Equipe Rapid Challenge Cup #6 - Pennington Field, 1501 Central Dr., Bedford, TX 76022.

August 29th & 30th:
29th - Cars & Coffee - Event starts at sunrise and ends at approx. 10:30am. I need to verify this so check back for updates.

Please make suggestions for places to meet, we love suggestions!

Keep the shiny side up and let's hear your opinions folks,



S.R.

The Drag-n-Brag would be a good way to spend a Friday night, maybe I can find me a woman out there.

I won't be able to make the NST events this month since they're during the week. :(

I'm not too much into the tuning-thing nor the autocross-thing...tends to be a centerpiece of most car clubs/groups out there. It bores me, if only because the owner demographic get somehow limited. Just my opinion...I do recognize this is a big hobby for some folks.

I dine w/ my car-crazed fanatic friends at Estella's in Arlington. Great tex-mex, cheap, and if one goes there enough to get to know folks, you are treated like family. We've been know to sit there for three hours...good times. One guy is building a Cobra, one guy is comtemplating his move from his Z4, and I....well, I brag on my Yaris, of course!!!!

Well, I suppose the truth had to come out eventually. Okay...I confess...I eat at Estella's every day. Sometimes more than once. I am a legend there....in the most pathetic sense!!!

Year before last some car-buff friends drove down from Tennessee and Pennsylvania just to see what it was all about. Strangely...and in spite of my warnings...they were not disappointed.

#gokartride - Estella's Address please :) That way we can come cause a ruckuss and run up your tab for the next Yaris Yak. I think it would be good to meet there and get to know a new place.



By the way, is Estella cute? I'm still looking for a date. Can you PM me her phone number?

Thanks,

S.R.

Geeez..., The 16th is the best I can do. The 15th I am race director at the track. Sounds like a nice place to eat, I may have been there. They may not let me back in.

Estella's is at 1224 Arkansas Lane in Arlington. It is not a fancy place at all, but it is the real deal.

As for Estella, well she went on to her eternal reward many years ago.

Ok so I guess the Aug. YY will be on the 16th at Estella's. I'm not worried about it being fancy we don't really dress up for the meetings anyways. Now if only wildmongoose could show up we could meet a couple new faces and have a decent sized meeting.
