Default Columbus - Cars and Coffee

Looks like another local forum is trying to get a cars and coffee up and running for Columbus. I think it's a great concept and other than the weather wondered why we never had one locally.

Here's the details for those interrested:

WHAT: Columbus Cars & Coffee
WHEN: Every other Saturday, starting April 18th - 8am to 10am
WHERE: Cup O' Joe - Lennox Town Center (off of Olentangy River Rd next to Rt.315, near OSU)
WHY: Start off the weekend right...enjoy a cup of coffee and the conversation of like-minded car nuts!

Please PM me with your NAME, EMAIL address, and CR SCREEN NAME. If you know of another car nut that would be interested that's not on CR, please give me their email as well. I am compiling an email notification list to keep people updated until a website is completed...this is NOT a ColumbusRacing.com only event!!!

I will get business cards done (at my expense) so that the bearer can get whatever deal Cup O' Joe gives us. Just show up in your prized ride, grab some coffee, and have a good time!

I hope that something like this can go on w/o a hitch, I love this type of social event. I'm just afraid of the assholes who will ruin it and then everyone's car will get impounded and stuff. Especially coming from a site named "Columbus Racing".

Prove me wrong is all I'm saying.

I have the same reservations. But 90% of the people I've actually met through that board are great guys and love everything automotive. The ones that make the press give the whole lot a bad name.

My hope is that the ones that get in all of the trouble will be hung over Saturday mornings at 8am and won't participate.

I'm not sure I can make the first one anyhow with my current schedule but I'd love to see it really take off and become a regular deal.

I'd say we start one like this but keep it to a circle of people who at least know each other. Then as the time progresses more and more people can be invited.

They should hold the meet in the back behind the movie theater. Nobody parks there except for when there's no theater parking out front and at 8 a.m. that won't be a problem.

I was a regular on that site years ago when I lived in columbus, we did a pretty good job keeping the dumb*ss's away. Most of the guys I knew on there were pretty cool, and from the sound of it, the one's planning a "Cars & Coffee" aren't the ones that will cause the trouble.

I've been planning on getting back on there and seeing if some old friends are still on it, used to be good friends with the brothers that owned it.

I wouldn't think it'd be difficult to stop, get the coffee and then drive around back. Hell, there are at least three Starbucks with drive thrus within 2 miles of Lennox

The only "businesses" in that lot besides the Coffee shop are the Movie Theater, a Champs Sports, Jonny Rockets, Mens Wearhouse & Staples, I don't think they're doing too much business at 8 am on a Saturday.

Sorry Gents.

To be more clear I'm not the one organizing This event. It's being put together from a group of guys on Columbus Racing (CR). However, it's obviously not limited to Columbus Racing members. They're trying to gather a diverse crowd which is what makes the cars and coffee concept such a great one.

I'm going to make every effort to attend the first one on 4/18. Maybe get the wife to even drive separately. Hopefully There's a good turnout and some great cars to see.

Andy

We aren't just taking up spots if we are drinking coffee. Technically we are patrons and have every right to be there.

Not like the 1st OhioBimmers meet, where we were loitering in the Easton parking lot.
