MARCH BREAKFAST TOUR
March 26, 2013
We had a nice turn out for our breakfast tour to Lincoln. Seven members met at Save-Mart, plus Tom Eastman joined us too.
We headed out the back way down Mt. Vernon road to Sheridan and then on to Lincoln. Like always the tour was enjoyable this time of year as it is Spring and everything is green and in bloom and lot’s of lambs/calves and even a fawn.
We would like to thank Allen and Mable for laying out the tour for us even though they could not come.
We arrived in Lincoln at exactly 9:30 and Kim,s had our tables set up for us and what a surprise Lyle and Sandy were there to greet us. That made out group count up to 16. They had our coffee to us in no time and then took our orders and although they were busy they got all our food out to us in no time. The service was great and everyone said their breakfast was delicious. The pancakes were the size of a platter and Gary and I had Chorizos and it was not greasy like it is most of the time at other restaurants.
I reminded everyone who was a veteran to let them know and they will give you a 20% discount on your bill, which our veterans (which there were a lot) took advantage of. They will do it on the senior menu too, so if you go in there ask them for the discount.
Thanks to everyone that made it and we always seem to have a good time catching up and visiting with everyone we have not seen in a while.
Tony will be doing the next two months so check your newsletter as to where and when. Next month looks like it will be a lot of fun and eating.
If anyone has a breakfast place to go to, let Gary know and in July/Aug we will not be here, so will need some ideas for those two months.
Remember when you plan a breakfast tour, make sure you drive there and eat there before the tour just to check out things. We did this last week end and a good things as the restaurant was not on the same page as we were as they changed prices and what we could eat from when I had talked to them last month. So we had to make last minute changes, but it worked out ok. If you are not sure about taking a back road ask Allen he is always there to help us and he knows a lot of neat back roads to go on.
As you can see, we had a great turn out
