It's good to see a little action from the Houston guys! Any interest in a little informal get together one evening?

I'm game. Though, with Houston being so widespread, it would depend on time and location. Ideas?

Central makes sense! How about along the central corridor anywhere between midtown and west Houston, maybe along Westheimer or 59.

depends where you guys are...I think Jospeh is fairly close to me...Im` on west side...Gessner/Memorial.
and friday evenings a few guys get together at Enclave/Eldridge , usually just 5-20 cars..6.30 on....I go there sometimes...
but right now , my car is at the mechanics, took it in 2 hrs ago, for a few things..not sure when I get it back, but he promised it to me before next friday morning as my group is going on its yearly Corpus cruise Friday afternoon, back sunday...so unless I get it back early next week, I have no Alfa here in town until the 5th of May.

Im game otherwise...find a good location , hopefully close to some good beer! and we`ll just do it!

my email, for better communication is

Sorry guys, I can't make it I'm leaving for Italy (Sicily actually) this Sunday for vacation. I'll be back in a couple of weeks, and maybe I can make the next get together.

Maybe when I get back we can get together at Dolce Vita on Westheimer in Montrose. I think it's an appropriate place for the Alfisti to gather! I was there a couple of Sundays ago after the Dynamo game, and the valet parked the Spider next to the door. When we left he told us that lots of people we standing in front of it and having their pictures taken!

ok, too bad (for us, great for you , Sicily!).....got to look up Dolce Vita....but you let the valet park it? Ususlly when we in our Firbird group go out , the valet just gives us good spots ,lets us park ourselves....but once I took my daughter to dinner at a nice place , let him park the Firebird....as we walked out of the front door after dinner I could hear the car start in the back...he knew exactly who owned that car, was grinning when he pulled up too....
have a great trip!
I`ve got to get back to Italy soon too...was in Milan 2 summers ago
