Turkish Meal.

8:10 Saturday Morning:

Let's dine at ROKA at 12:00 Noon when they open for lunch.

No Hike. Food yes!

I see a gale warning(i don't know what that is but it sounds ominous)

Please leave a message below so I know if you will be there for lunch.

After our previous hike last week, we tried a new Turkish Restaurant --ROKA-- that is only two blocks from the park.  I is on the corner of 118 Street and Metropolitan Avenue.  They moved the tables together so we could sit as a group. They could not give us separate checks, but they would do them in groups of 4. They have meals starting at about $12.  If you wish to pay less, you could  order an appetizer.  I need to show the proprietors that we can bring in a good size group.

We do not charge Hikers for attending our events.  However it does cost money to keep the site running.  I do not expect you to attend every meal with us.  There are members that continuously Hike, but do not ever support or sponsors. Its not fair to the rest of us.

It is important to us to have a large turn out this week at the Greek Restaurant.

We will be meeting at our regular starting point.  Metropolitan Avenue and Park Lane South at 10:30 am.  We start Hiking at 10:45 sharp!!

 

 

Estimated time for the hike is about one hour +or - a few minutes.

    The atmosphere is comfortable and attractive. So far I am enjoying the chicken ka bob dishes and I'm looking forward to trying more of the items on the menu.

    I think I'm going to take a pass due to the weather. I do love to hike but first rule of hiking is safety first. Can't afford to get injured. I'll look forward to seeing everyone soon. You are truly all missed.

    Hi Linda, Tamara, Robin...we are an all weather group. Unless there are highh winds or electrical storms we usually have some portion of the event. I try to ask members not to post weather related negative comments because it tends to sway those on the decision fence.

      .. well, sophie & I are going .. we were in the park today .. it's great to go when it's a little breezy etc bcuz the sounds are wonderful & you can smell different plants too ..

  • quikglik

    I think just going for lunch is fine if the hike is cancelled. I did like the restaurant a lot. I would move the time to 12 or 12:30 in that case.

    May 24, 2013

  • Kevin

    If the weather is dangerous, let us just dine? Comments folks. What would you like to do?

    May 24, 2013

  • Linda

    I would like to join this weeks hike which would be my first one, but I have an early morning apt and will not know if it will end on time. Can I RSVP anyway? Also, what is the suggested contribution that is mentioned above to support the site? Thanks!

    1 · May 19, 2013

      Pushti. We don't take contributions directly from our Hikers. You can support us and our sponsors by dining with us.
