I plan on going to this, Saturday evening March 22nd. Thought it might be a fun meetup!  East Valley(EV) ride starts at the Circle K on Inverness and Stapley in Mesa. (Event info below) The garden is pretty centralized so we can just meet any WV riders at the Garden.   EV will meet between 3:45-4:00, w/KSU at 4:15pm.

Probable route map, at least the start and end

    Hey Buddy thanks for organizing the ride. We were a mighty group of two bikes. Still it was great riding with you. The Japanese Friendship Garden is really nice.

      Yeah we paid the five bucks for the tea service but it was anticlimactic. We grabbed teriyaki sticks and drank sake and walked around for a bit before heading home. A trike had replaced your bike in our parking space by the time we left.

      Well I hope you guys had a good time. It was worth the trip I think. Enjoyed riding with ya. I'll let you know if I find something else cool to try out. Weather is too nice to not be out on the bike! =)

    The garden is beautiful, peaceful and serene. I was glad I went. However, I thought it was way overpriced. $15 for entry is a little steep. I heard the bikes arrive. However, did not see anyone that I recognized in the garden. The wife and I went in the car. So were not at the meetup.

    It was great to see Daryl and Kris (Sorry Kris, I don't know the correct spelling).
    The Friendship Garden is a very cool, peaceful, and pretty garden. Didn't know it was actually part of the Deck Park Tunnel park! It's is located on the Southwest corner of the park accessed from 3rd Ave just south of I-10. (Google Earth it....it's easy to pick out)

      I looked around at some really cool stuff. I was pretty mesmerized by a guy that was playing "Bowls". Amazing. I took a short 1 minute or so video (pretty impressive I think). If you are interested, email me at [masked] and I'll reply and attach it.

      On the event though, I think you need to hang around after sunset to truly enjoy the Haru. In my opinion, this is an event best shared with a partner. I had a good time looking around though. Now I know for next time! ;-)

      In line to get in, a lady told me "They have a similar gathering in the Fall". So maybe we can get together for that? We'll see! I will keep you posted.

      As a Chicagoan and a Cubs sufferer, I must say I agree with you John. I am very used to the Cubs losing :)

    I will meet you at the garden. My wife and possibly some other folks will be with me. Sounds like an interesting time. My wife don't ride anymore. So, we will be in a cage. See you there.
