The March 2005 Lunch at The Stage Stop Inn in Patagonia†††
Arizonaís weather lived up to itís reputation - a beautiful day of sunshine and cool breezes, tailor made for going for a ride.† And Patagonia is in the heart of some of best riding roads in Southern Arizona.
†††† The Stage Stop Inn also lived up to itís reputation - the food was good but slow, very slow, even didnít make it in a couple of instances.† Itís such a shame that the only restaurant in Patagonia that is big enough to handle SEAT canít get it together.
†††† I must say the door prizes the Stage Stop Inn gave away was a very nice gesture.† They really did want to make us want to come back.† Colleen Lester won a nice t-shirt, and Harriet Marvin won a free nightís stay at the hotel with dinner for two. †Not bad for two SEAT members who live in El Paso, Texas!
†††† Lots of tire kicking went on in the parking lot.† Seems we all had plenty of time before the meals began arriving.† Even the tourists were taking pictures of all the bike lining the street.† You know, it is a grand site to see so many Beemers lined up like that.† Just looks good.
