Pizza, Beer and 1 glass of wine...

Hello all you Tacoma Wine and Diners.. Tuesday September 10th is a unique day in my life and i would be honored to spend it with as many of you as i can.. So this gathering (shin dig) is a way to see, laugh, and smile with all of you.. Since day 1, when I first joined your fantastic group you all felt like family to me..
It is my Birthday.. I do not want any gifts, cards, or cake.. all i want is to see you, even if you only can stop by for a few minutes.. Pending the amount of people that come i will buy a few pizza's and some pitchers of beer.. oh and at least 1 glass of wine for someone (that is a requirement due to the group name, Tacoma Wine and Dine)... I know at least 50 of you have touched me in a unique way.. so if at least 1 of you show up, it will make my day..

    Wonderful celebration for one of our truly wonderful members. Thanks Kenan for this event and for being born. I did feel kind of bad because when I got home I realized we never sang Happy Birthday to you. I guess you'll just have to sing a few bars in the shower to yourself.

    Great turnout. Nice to see some old friends, and meet some neat, fun people. Thanks to Annie and Karen for wearing the T-shirts, and to everyone that wore a button in honor of the birthday boy and for signing his poster card!

    OK gang.. it is me again... Just to touch base.. our Meet Up is Tuesday September 10th.. When you find Katie Downs Please go in front door and turn to left.. our group will be against far wall to the left. We will have a number of saved seats available.. for those of you that are like me you might find yourself wanting to sit outside on the deck if you see a table open please grab it.. I should be wandering around saying hi to all.. inside and out.. Again i cant emphasize this enough.. no gifts... cards... or cake.. especially no happy birthday... seriously.. .. this is a gathering for all of us to mingle amongst each other.. talk laugh and have fun.. that is gift enough for me, it really is.. We will have a couple platters of rum brownies made by my MaMa the "Rum Brownie Queen" for all of you with a sweet tooth (Chris and Carole especially).. see you all at 5:30...

    Happy birthday Tuesday, Kenan. It looks like I won't get off the waitlist. Have a great time!

    Kennan, do u not like cake?

    August 31, 2013

  • Carole

    We used to have birthday month meetups but something happened to that idea. Happy Birthday to you! It's mine this month as well and a few others I know personally with this group. :) You are a good addition to TWDHH and such a kind person, how could we not all come out and spend a little time with ya celebrating and toast to you being here? There's on stipulation....someone else needs to take the pics so you can just chill and enjoy without snappin the whole time, K?

    4 · August 30, 2013

    • Carole

      When I joined there was June birthday meetup so my bad in assumin this was the norm. I thought we also celebrated past months as well...I think it's a cool idea, and I got your Message about organizing. Will respond back soon. :)

      August 31, 2013

    • Steve D.

      Yes Carolyn, as I mentioned we did have Birthday MU's in the past. They were the exception rather then the rule. We, as long as I have been with TWDHH, have never had anything like the monthly New Member Meetups. If we are going to do Bday MU's then to be fair to everyone they should be done monthly.

      August 31, 2013

  • Kelly

    I'm on the wait list, bummer. That's what you get for being sick and not checking your e-mail for days.

    August 31, 2013

    What a wonderful idea. Looking forward to giving you a b-day hug.

  • Gini

    Kenyan it will be an honor to get to celebrate your birthday with you! I'm taking you up on your invite, happily offering up my presence but no presents - I figure you're like me, if you want it you'd have it by now! But I insist on buying my own wine... They don't have glasses big enough if we're limited to just one! Happy birthday in advance, you should really celebrate the whole month through, and with this being a holiday weekend you'll just have to start early!

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.
