Ride a Mechanical Bull and Dinner. *** free to ride ***

If you're looking for something to do tonight just rsvp and join us. We'll be there for a while. 

Howdy y'all,

I always like to try to find new and different things to do in the city and stumbled across this in my search. I've always wanted to try it but have never had the opportunity. Even if you're not interested in riding, come out and have dinner and some drinks with a great bunch of people... OUR members. And laugh along at those brave souls that try. Who knows you may change your mind when you see how much fun it is.

We'll meet inside the bar at 7:00. The bull is powered up at 8. Take your chances and eat before or take your ride and enjoy the food after.

Hope to see you there.

Peter

If you have read this far you're probable interested... but PLEASE NOTE: When you rsvp yes to an event it means that you are going, not that you like the idea and might show up if you have nothing else going on that day or that your finger hurts or that you were running late and missed the bus or... . It means you are going to attend. The biggest complaint I hear from other organizers is that people just don't show up after they've rsvp'ed yes to a meetup. Unfortunately, I to have experienced this and have recently implement a no show policy. If you do not show up or change your rsvp within 24 hours before the meetup on 3 occasions I will remove you from the group. Period.

    Just 4 and a half months after starting the group it was the highest attended and after seeing the pictures I'm reminded once again why I love doing this! Thanks again for coming out. Pete

    Thanks again Peter for organizing. And remember ... it's not how long you stay on the bull, it's how good you look doing it (at least that's what I keep telling myself) :)

      After seeing the pics, I stand by my comment ... what a fantastic looking bunch of bull riders! Thanks again Doug for capturing the moments!

      January 26, 2014

    • Maz

      Those are some awesome shots !!! ... a big BIG thank you to Dougie and the other photographers for taking them. I didn't even look too bad and that's a small miracle. ;)

    Have a few war wounds from the bull ride (right hand is still a little swollen) but it was a fun experience. Wish I could have hung on a few seconds more to make it to one minute or at least to beat the best time.

      No Shawn, you got my boots and the bottom of my pants. First guy missed most of that area. Never underestimate the intelligence of a drunk guy. lol

    • Celia O

      Peter, do you know how it works, is there a line up for the bull? lol

      January 23, 2014

    • Dutch

      They're turning on the bull for us at 7:30 instead of 8 so it shouldn't be too bad.

      January 23, 2014

  • Linda

    What's for dinner?

    January 17, 2014

    • Dutch

      Thanks for adding the link Adrian. Hope I can figure out what I going to eat before Friday cuz I can't right now. I will be having a Giant Sized Margarita though. It's made with fresh fruit so it's still part of my well balanced meal plan. :-)

      2 · January 21, 2014

    • Celia O

      I don't know about dining...but I loved an item on the menu called The Bulldog!

    Yah I wanna attend this meetup

    Rock and Horse Saloon is located at 250 Adelaide Street West. Depending on your location you will either need to access www.gotransit.com or www.ttc.ca to chart your course. Get yourself to Union Station and it's about a 15 minute walk from there or you could take a taxi. If you check out maps.google.ca you will be able to enter your starting point to help you navigate. Happy Trails! See you there. :-)

      TTC ride planner told me to get off at St Andrew station and walk about 5 min. Going to be a Very Cold walk

      January 23, 2014

    • Shawn

      St Andrew or Osgoode are the best bet. Me and a buddy are taking the LRT to the subway from Midland and Ellesmere station. Probably will have to bring a few travellers for the trip.

    Wow, I wish I was available to try this

    January 20, 2014

  • Celia O

    Is it essential that people are seated at a table? Isn't it a bar where people can be standing, maybe dancing...

    January 19, 2014

  • Dutch

    When I originally posted this on Thursday I was only able to reserve a table for 15 . I set the rsvp limit at 20 as I figured from past experience that at least 5 just wouldn't bother showing up. To date we have 16 on the waiting list and I'm sure there have been many more that didn't rsvp'ing because of the waiting list size. I've sent another email to the reservation coordinator to see if I can get another table for our group. As soon as I hear back I'll either add the spots or post a comment. If they can't fit us in I'll do this again in the near future.

      Is running a very popular group on your bucket list?..haha! people seem to love your activities.

      1 · January 19, 2014

    • Dutch

      Starting one was. :-)

      1 · January 19, 2014

  • Deb

    Can the wait list people come and sit at the bar?

    January 19, 2014

  • Celia O

    Hey, why did I RSVP yes and now I am on a wait list?

    January 18, 2014

    • Dutch

      The only way you'd be on the waiting list is if you rsvp'ed yes after the 20 spots were taken.

      January 19, 2014

    • Celia O

      I was the 3rd to confirm but whatever... :p

      January 19, 2014

  • ChrisB

    same here. I would like to pop by. If I ride I ride if not that's ok too.. does that steak come with a defibrillator....

    January 17, 2014

  • Linda

    I may just want to come for dinner...is that ok? I don't want to ride the bull.

    January 17, 2014

  • ChrisB

    saddle up!

    January 17, 2014

  • Annemarie

    Cost?????

    January 16, 2014

    • Dutch

      It's "free" like it says in the title. Just pay for your food and drinks.
