    Awesome event G. Thank you for organizing it! Great films and great people.

    I want to apologize to and thank all the people that went to the after meal. It was the grand opening of my friends' new restaurant and I know the service left a lot of room for improvement. I know many people received their meals after a long wait and some people didn't even get the meals they ordered. I'm so sorry about that! My friend was certainly aware that the process did not work last night. That said, myself and him and his family were thrilled that you gave the place a try. You all made me look like a champ for following me to the opening in one great group. I'm sorry things didn't run smoothly. In fact, I felt incredibly awkward, feeling sorry for my friend and you all, my new friends. And, you all were champs. Thank you for being incredibly composed and kind with what transpired. That was awesome of you all! Sharing the evening with everyone was a blessing. You're all super cool. Thank You!

      I really liked the place and wish it would have been me to wait as I was not very hungry. But I tried two of their little appetizers and they were delicious! I'm happy you took us there and to get to know some great meetup people!

    Great short films. Great performances, production, directing, screenplays. I don't believe in the "there can only be one best" point of view specially in this case when all of them had a lot to say. However, the one from Afghanistan was quite poignant, and the one from the US was funny, entertaining, and moving. There was a common theme among most of these shorts, the power of Love, and what we'll do for Love. More people should watch or be exposed to these short films. Last but not least, what a great turnout of awesome people!

      They all were very good story lines, but I enjoyed Curfew and the last one I believe based in Somalia the most.

      I loved the movies. Thanks, G, for suggesting this meetup! I actually thought the recurring theme was "A reason to live" and started writing an article for my blog, but now have to leave to an Oscar's watch party and won't finish it until perhaps past midnight or tomorrow... too late to capture Oscar attention! :)

    The shorts were outstanding! And the purple carrot juice with a hint of cinnamon was de-lic-ious!

      It was purple corn, not carrot. Haha! Even though... there is such a thing as purple carrot juice as well. :)

      I called too, and heard another show was sold out so I'm hoping they still have tickets for this one, but too much to ask to have them update the greeting when there's no one answering the phone

    G, I RSVP'd but it would not allow me to cut and paste the long url address to get the promo code discount, so I tried pressing enter instead and now do not see how to obtain the promo code tickets. Kindly advise. Thanks!

    • G

      Hello Gustavo, if you RSVP'd for this event more than 3 days ago, then check your emails since I sent out the purchasing details, link included, not long ago. Otherwise send me an email to which I can reply with those details. Cheers!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
