Sat.Jan.9/2016: World Famous*MURPHY'S STEAK HOUSE*Winchester Tx. w/Z Clubs
Posted by TopDown on 2016/1/12 17:00:00 (60 reads)

*It was windy & chilly @11am, but hey.... we had clear blue skies, no rain forecasted, tops up & heaters on. 12 Z cars + 3 RXs & friends totaled 22 people. Leaving the Walnut Creek Water Treatment Plant @11:30am, we drove east-south-east on 969,1209, 81, Shiloh Rd., 304, 2571, 95, & 153 to Winchester Tx. by 1am+-.
*Murphy's Steak House had tables reserved for us + 15 cars & 19 more people arriving with San Antonio & Houston Z clubs. Service was very good, prices reasonable, steaks excellently seasoned & cooked exactly to order. Medium rare was actually medium rare !! Priced by the 8 ounce size+ from $12., sides, salad bar & a wonderful bean pot were included. Murphy's notably serves each steak one menu priced size larger than ordered; my 8 oz came 12 oz on the plate, same $$. A little out of the way, but my best steak place !!
*We drove home by reversing the original route, ready made, easy, looking different that way & still interesting. I got home in time to see 3 quarters of the Houston Texans looking *really bad* in a shut out by the Kansas City Chiefs. Oh well, ...like watching U.T.
*Thanks very much to the Z Club for it's continuing hospitality. We especially note Ayon Dasgupta for the invitation & Maureen Van Sickle for planning the route, leading the drive at a nice pace & making all the arrangements @Murphy's.

Sat.Dec.19/2015 *Johnson City Xmas Lights* w/Z Club
Posted by TopDown on 2015/12/20 12:10:00 (91 reads)

*9 in all, Z's, G's, & RX's, showed 3pm for the annual trip to see Xmas lights in Johnson City. First Stop was to see snow !! @the Bee Cave library/Hill Country Galleria & Santa for the little ones.
*The 4pm drive w/cool clear weather was a little under top down temps, but after all, ...it's December. The route included Hamilton Pool Rd, 301 (a favorite) & 281 to Johnson City. We arrived early enough for close parking on the court house square, ending a very pleasant drive well.
*With a long waiting line at the popular Pecan St. Brewing Co., a reservation for a large table was *great planning* by Z Club organizers. Seating, food & especially service was quick & smooth. Everyone gave their items good marks, ...maybe because no one ordered the infamously tiny Chicken Fried Steak @$14.++. We finished just a little while after display lights went on @6pm.
*City Park was fascinating & the Court House was completely draped in lights like Clark Griswald's house from roof to ground with outside/inside displays. Perdernales Electrical Co-op was *spectacular* as always with giant oaks completely covered with lights from ground to branch tips. This year, a few in the middle were in all blue, nicely adding to the traditional all white theme.
*Hard core drivers headed out 8:30pm to see the Marble Falls Xmas Trail. I toured the rest of downtown & visited the replacement for the much missed *Silver K Restaurant*, the new *East Main Grill*@The Old Lumber Yard location. It looks worth a visit soon.
*I left feeling all warm & Christmasy, ....then home.
**A huge THANKS** to the Z Club for this holiday drive. LD.

*NEXT EVENT: Jan.23/2016 *Murphy's Steak House* in Winchester, Tx. w/the Z Club. Time/Location TBA.

Sat.Dec.5, 2015 BLUE SANTA Toy Drive w/Sweet Rides.
Posted by TopDown on 2015/12/12 9:04:43 (55 reads)

*Over 150 !! unique cars filled the huge lot at *Ranch Hand Truck Accessories*in Cedar Park. Weather was clear & cool all day. A large amount of Xmas toys were collected for the Blue Santa toy distribution by the local police, very successful !! Saw my friends there. Heather Siminski drove her black/Black super charged Camero cnvrt with new trim changes. Organizer Shawn Jones, looking for a latter model, offered to sell me his Corvette. A C5 pop top would be my choice if my '89 cnvrt is lost. Maybe later; my RX7 keeps me happy enough for now.
*Best Part Of The Day ?? Got home in time to watch Texas win over poor, beat up Baylor. Still a nice boost to a Twilight Zone season.

Sun.Dec.6, 2014-Leander Car Show-Lunch & Drive.
Posted by TopDown on 2015/12/12 8:43:08 (58 reads)

Perfect weather for the show & drive encouraged a moderate turnout with diverse cars & ease of parking spaces. Lunch was Mexican @La Tapatia around the corner. The short Sunday drive was led by Berny Schiff in his new Lexus R (seriously) V8 Coupe: Nameless Rd.--1431--Lime Creek--2222--360 & home. Nice day, just right !!

Sun.Nov.8, 2015 *Wine Tour* with the Z Club.
Posted by TopDown on 2015/12/2 12:20:00 (87 reads)

*With cool, clear weather, we met up with our Capital Z friends at the "Y". Nine cars headed west for wineries along the Driftwood, Wood Creek, Blanco, Johnson City route.
*Murphy was with us on this trip. While driving a low water crossing with mild flow, all made it across with out incident except one car with a very low mounted engine, starter & intake. It stalled & we pushed it out to dry road where 2 of us waited with him (*no none gets left behind*). After 40 minutes, it dried out, started up & ran good. We bypassed the wineries & went straight to Johnson City.
*Arriving before the main group, we celebrated lunch at the Pecan St. Brewing Co.,..... mostly about not having to call a tow truck !!
*So much for the wine part of the tour & less dramatic but more pleasant roadside stops ,....may be next time.
