Chapter Event: Tour and Lunch, October 24, 2015

Hi Everyone,

Richard has put together a very good looking event. The club will be touring a 1930s gambling casino complete with underground escape tunnels located in Arlington. We will cohost with the FIAT club. Lunch will be at a nearby (and "connected") steakhouse, in operation since 1931.

The date is Saturday, October 24 and we will meet at the facility in Arlington. I will find out the address and time, and report back later. We do not do many AROC events but this looks like a nice one. Please hold that date open and come out if you can.

Thanks and cheers,

Jeff

Here are the details of the club outing. It is a joint event with us, the Italian Car Club of the Southwest and the DFW Fiat Club.

12:00 noon, we will be touring Top O' Hill Terrace in Arlington. The facility started in the early 1920s as a tea room and dinner place located along the Bankhead Highway in Arlington. In the late 1920s, new owners converted the facility into a casino, adding an escape tunnel and secret room for hiding the gambling paraphernalia during the raids. There is more history to be shared on the tour. The facility is now owned and operated by the Arlington Baptist College and the address is 3001 West Division Street, Arlington. It is located on the north side of West Division, and is situated between Eastchase Parkway to the west, and North Fielder Road to the east. It should be a great tour. The cost is a suggested donation of $5 per person for the tour.

2:00 Lunch at nearby Arlington Steak House, 1724 West Division Street. Join us! The lunch will be $10 per head. They have a special room set aside for us along with a special menu. Come on!

In addition to this, the DFW Fiat Club has arranged a reception at 4:00 at Fiat of Dallas, 5403 Lemmon Avenue, Dallas. They are having a special reception for us to Celebrate their NEWLY REMODELED location. Snacks and beverages will be provided.

Please let me or Karen Phillips know you are coming. Her email address is [email protected].

Thanks everyone,

New update: the event this weekend is being postponed due to the heavy rain in the area expected this weekend. We are pushing it back to Saturday, November 14th.

Much thanks.

I have been told that the reception at Alfa Romeo FIAT of Dallas that was arranged by the DFW Fiat Club is still on for this Saturday. Come by at 4:00 for a special reception. Their address is 5403 Lemmon Avenue, Dallas. They are having a reception for us to celebrate their NEWLY REMODELED location. Snacks and beverages will be provided.

This may also be a good time to play a joke on the parts department by going and asking if they have any (insert unobtainable part here) for your Alfa. I will be asking for replacement seat motors for my 164.

Thanks everyone and see you on Saturday.
