Tampa/St Pete/Clearwater Summer meet...

I read through another thread on here where the idea was kicked around for a get together in the Tampa-ish area. Anyone want to start working towards making that official? Maybe throw some dates around?

I'm really up for anything. I'm not sure what the previous meets for this specific club have been like, but in my previous car club we would just do casual things in parking lots and such. Went to a park once a year for a cook out, movie nights, etc. I'm up for whatever.

St. Pete to Port Richey is hardly a move in my books. I moved from Toronto Canada to Europe (The Netherlands), back to Ottawa Canada then to Clearwater. Those are moves!

I'd really like to meet some fellow fanatics sometime this summer.

Does anyone have any ideas on potential locations?

I guess we need to decide what we think we want to do. Do we want there to be an official "activity?" Or do we want to just do something more laid back where we all just kinda stand around and chat and such? Additionally, food is always fun...

I figure once we have an idea for a location we can start narrowing in on a date. Once we have both we can try and attract others from outside the immediate Tampa/St Pete area who might be willing to come after they consider date/location.

So then...with that said...

-Theres a Quaker Steak and Lube in Clearwater. Here's their website: http://www.thelube.com/Pinellas_Park...r_FL/index.cfm
I've never been, but I hear its fun. It's a little out of my way, but I'd be willing to drive if there was enough interest.

-There's a place called Peabody's in New Tampa that I go to pretty often. It's off I-75 on Bruce B. Downs. They have lots of specials on different days. It gets pretty crowded in the evenings. Additionally, you have to be 21 after 9 or 10pm.
link: http://www.peabodysbilliards.com/

I'm open for any all and all other ideas. But I'm looking forward to this happening!

In addition, Peabodys has pool and darts. Pool is kinda expensive and I suck at it, but darts is pretty cheap and rather addictive I've found lately.
