Thanksgiving Orphan ride. Sycuan for "lunch" and "thanks."

Let's ride and share a meal on Thursday. (This is normally a 4th Thursday dinner ride, which falls on Thanksgiving this month)

Plan: Early start, Casino meal, home by dark! Orphans, or others not orphaned are more than welcome to share the holiday with your biker family for what the weather man says will be a fine day in the country!

Please have full tanks, KSU 10:15 am

    A nice day! We had a small group, but it was so nice getting to know each other better. Delicious food, excellent service.

    Super nice in town ride and pretty close to home. Great day for a ride, thanks for posting.

    Home safe. Yay for Laura and Dan who dropped in to share holiday greetings and exercise their bikes. Yay to Cesar and Justin for both making it out, and for finding the groove with me on the road. Yay to Jodi and everyone for the shared meal and all. The buffet was too much and quite good, with attentive wait people (?at a buffet? nice!) To my surprise they had tasty clean shucked oysters - slurp yum. Fewer than 100 miles on the bike today, but it was all GOOOOD miles and lots of nice scenery. For all that, and more, I am thankful.

      Hey Im glad you waited ;-)) I rolled up to find you and Cesar there before 10A. We KSU with Dan by 1014 and surprisingly, almost beat Jodi to the Casino door. Almost.

    Hi Justin glad you can make it too. Guess your honey's bun is still in the oven? Tick tick tick, baby time soon...

    Cesar if youre so inclined and dont mind cruising with a scoooter, perhaps we can motor to Tecate and see if the money exchange and insurance broker is open and get a jump on border prep for saturday. I forget if youre new to SD Co, it will be some sweet roads down to there from Sycuan area ... ;)

    Hi Cesar, glad you can make it. I'll meet you and Karenina at the buffet since I'm caging it. They could start letting us in at 11 am so I hope you guys get there a little early.

    ;) Ive figured out to get a 20% buffet discount, one must apply in person for that card. Coincidentally, I am in La Cresta tonight for an event, and can stop in haha!

    November 19, 2012

    • karenina

      Nice! I got my card that night. The people were totally surprised when I said "No Thank You" to their Q, "are you playing the slots tonight, maam?"

      November 21, 2012

    • Jodi

      Ha ha, I bet they were surprised, shocked more like it!

    This is *ON* for Thursday. (Hello Cesar, haha!) It will certainly be a nice day for a ride before (and maybe after?) Drop ins welcome! We *WILL* KSU at 1015 so dont be late!! It will certainly be a nice day to eat and chat, too, Jodi estimates we should shoot for[masked] at Sycuan to Buffet ;)

    if you guys need to make a dessert ride on friday because you ate to much on thursday count me in i have that day off

    • Jodi

      What did you have in mind for a ride? My thought is if you post it, you will have others join you.

      November 18, 2012

    • karenina

      Go for it Chris !

      November 21, 2012

    Hi Karenina, I'm in no matter if its just two of us or more. Of course, it's doubtful I'll be part of the ride. My friend Richard who I ride with is spending time with his daughter.

    November 20, 2012

  • karenina

    We have a ride route! http://goo.gl/maps/4U7b4 Short and sweet.

    Reposting from my earlier comment regarding parking and where to get a card at the casino for the discount: They have motorcycle parking in the East lot, the back side of the casino which happens to be the same side as the buffet and non-smoking entrance. Once inside the doors turn to your right to get a players card for the discount, restrooms are in that same area.

    Hi Karenina, any luck finding any places?

    I checked various SD restaurant locations and their prices. The lowest price so far is at the Bahia for $35. Most are around $49. All except the casinos are too pricey for me.

    The casinos are less costly and they give an extra 20% discount with a free players card. No reservations accepted.

    Sycuan is $20.99, $16.80 with discount. They open at 11:00. They're not sure, but think it will get the most crowded from 1 pm on. Barona is $29.99, $23.99 with discount. They open at 11:00. I was told it's best to get there close to when they open.

    Viejas opens at 11:30, price still unknown. They said to get there between 10:45-11 am to be the first group to be seated.

    • karenina

      Looks like you found a great Plan A (sycuan 20$). My plan B is Nozumi on convoy, everything else is closed (including Panda machi in Alpine.)

      November 16, 2012

    • Jodi

      Remember with the 20% discount it will only be $16.80.

      November 16, 2012

  • Jodi

    Hi Karenina, my suggestion is let's meet at Sycuan Buffet no later than 10:45 am for seating that could start at 11 am. The website says 11:30, but they told me that could change to earlier. We can eat first then head out riding. I think it's better to be to the front of the line than wait a long time for eventual seating. The line and buffet in the non-smoking section so non-smokers won't be overwhelmed by smoke. By the way, two people can get the 20% discount per card. Let me know if that's okay with you? If so I'll see you and anyone else joining us next week!

    • karenina

      Done! Great work. tick tick tick on thursday. Who's joining us?

      November 16, 2012

    • Jodi

      You done good too!

      November 16, 2012

  • Jodi

    I'm assuming KSU 10:15 am, we'll need time to get to Sycuan. They have motorcycle parking in the East lot, the back side of the casino which happens to be the same side as the buffet and non-smoking entrance. Once inside the doors turn to your right to get a players card for the discount, restrooms are in that same area.

    November 16, 2012

  • karenina­ changed the time from 11:00 AM to 10:00 AM

  • Jodi

    Hi Laura, I think we'll be at Sycuan? I'm waiting for confirmation from karenina.

    November 16, 2012

  • Jodi

    @Steve, have a great time in Alaska! @Cindy if we go to a buffet you can make your own turkey taco, come join the fun.

    November 15, 2012

  • Jodi

    Hi Karenina, I was going to suggest the same thing. I'm an orphan too. I'm in as long as plans aren't too early in the day. Not very interested in going to a casino, they will be very crowed with super long waiting times.

    November 8, 2012

    • Jodi

      I'll do some internet searches this weekend for Thanksgiving places to go, prices, etc. Hope others will too then we'll share our finding and figure out a place that won't be too expensive.

      November 8, 2012

    • karenina

      uh-oh. Maries (restaurant in la Posta) and La Posta were apparently TOO "small".... bummer. http://www.utsandiego...­ Looks like more research will be needed LOL.

    Although this 4th Thursday ride is currently Semi-cancelled, I wonder if there are any Orphans who want to ride Thanksgiving day to ? Barona or somewhere for a meal before dark? Im game!

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.
