Okay! What was originally planned as a tiny little MiniMeet has grown into the Big Tampa Meet!

We'll be meeting at the Green Iguana off Veterans Expressway on Anderson Road between 5pm and 6pm. At this location, there's also a Texas Roadhouse, a Bennigan's, a Starbucks and an AMC 24 Theater.

This message will be updated in the event there are any changes..

Great! Very soon.. Let's just get a few more attendees before we make anything official. We actually have a LOT of members in Tampa - so I'm very surprised you're the first one to respond - six days after this was posted. :p

Will can be there except we will be in Orlando Feb. 21-25. We can do something the first weekend in March. Stoney, Nightwolf, Hitmoney, and Brett I sure will come. I am sure they haven't seen this as I did.

Lord Cadillac
02-11-07, 12:05 PM
The first weekend in March isn't out of the question...

I have been taken some clients to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner and I usually bring her home a slice. She should be good but I am sure she will say you can never have a enough.

Haha! That title is so darn funny. Yeah. Go me...

Anyway.. Danielle is talking about heading out to Tampa towards to end of February... How many people can we get together on this short notice?

Let me know when you guys want to do this. I will drive up with you if you want. We can meet where we did last time and head up.

Thanks.

UNLESS!!!!!!!!!!! It would be on a sunday on february 25th. I can make it then!!!

Lord Cadillac
02-12-07, 04:22 PM
Well.. This will be good for some - not all - but so far March 3rd, Saturday, looks like the day... We originally wanted to do something at the end of February but we pushed it up to March and we're afraid that if we push it up any more, it may just not happen...

So Saturday night, some time after 5pm... March 3rd...

Well. I think it would be nice to have Jesda at the meet. But flying in is expensive. Would anyone be interested in chipping in a few bucks to offset that cost? I can sneak a little past Danielle. :p

Lord Cadillac
02-19-07, 02:06 AM
Hi Kenny! Welcome aboard! We haven't picked a place yet. Let's do that now.. Those in Tampa need to jump on this.. I live in West Palm Beach so I don't know what's where...

Playdrv4me
02-19-07, 02:45 AM
Im not great at picking places, and its late right now so Im racking my brain for places with adequate Saturday Night parking and easy access...

International Mall has ACRES of parking, and a Champ's Sports Bar and Cheesecake Factory... Westshore Mall just down the street from International has good parking and a P.F. Chang's and Maggiano's. These two are both extremely easy for everyone to access from I-275.

Downtown/Ybor City/Channelside places include Hooters, Howl at the Moon, and Spaghetti Warehouse... but these arent very conducive to meet type stuff because you have to pay to park, and usually in a parking garage.

Other places on the water but not quite at the beach would be Landry's Seafood House, which is not cheap, but has more than generous parking and a beautiful view of Tampa Bay and outside seating areas. Bahama Breeze is in proximity to Landry's as well, its kind of a carribean joint owned by Darden (Olive Garden, Red Lobster etc).

If you want the beach there is an Outback Steakhouse right across from the beach in Clearwater with parking behind it free for restaurant patrons. Theres a few choices right on the beach too. Other Clearwater options include a very big Hooter's (one of the first if not the first I think), and a Cheddar's with plenty of parking that is one of my personal favorites.

Thats all I can think of for now, and Im a south Tampa guy, so Im sure the true Tampa natives can think of even better places than that.

02-19-07, 12:38 PM
Hey guys,

I'm in on this, it sounds like fun. I am a brand new Cadillac owner. I have a 06 V8 STS and would love to show it off. Tomorrow I will have it 5 weeks. Any of those places sounds great.

Brett
02-19-07, 01:32 PM
one thing to keep in mind, the places being listed are gonna be outrageously packed on a Sat night...which will not be conducive to everyone sitting down and eating dinner together. just something to keep in mind. if we're just gonna meet in a parking lot than I-mall or Westshore Mall are probably the most centrally located. Another consideration is International mall is expensive and trendy....dress nice and bring a lot of money if we decide to go there

cooncat
02-19-07, 01:55 PM
Am I the oldest one out there?

Also, if we do meet at either Westshore mall or International Mall, you should get an idea of the count and make reservations somewhere. This is especially important for a large group. Money shouldn't really be an object if we all own Cadillac's, just kidding.

jonnyd
02-19-07, 01:55 PM
I will be there guys!!! :thumbsup: Just lemme know where were meeting up! :D

Playdrv4me
02-19-07, 02:34 PM
Wow am I really THAT expensive? ;) I eat at alot of those places frequently. The only ones that you would want to dress real nice to (but you dont have to either), is Landry's and maybe Champs out of that entire list. The rest are nice casual dining places. Keep in mind Its not Denny's either but I figure this crowd would want at least a Hooters or something like that.

As far as the Saturday thing, I mentioned that. Any major place on a Saturday evening is gonna have lots of people packed into it, I would imagine calling ahead a reservation for everyone who is coming is going to be key as someone mentioned. Thats why Im hoping someone will chime in with places on the outskirts of town, or maybe in Brandon or Clearwater etc. Theres lots of little joints like Mugs and Jugs (a hooters copy) and stuff like that in those towns.. but I live in South Tampa, and Im not terribly familiar with them.

Oh, and watch out on 275 people... it is the WORST highway I have EVER used. Ive gotten smacked 3 times on that stupid thing, all of them rear ended because people werent watching where they were going and because theres lots of up and down where people cant see whats on the other side of the crest. Just a word of warning... drive defensively and cautiously on that stupid thing. I see one wreck a day on it at least.

Lord Cadillac

Finally got a new account so I could post. I've been reading these forums for 2 years now. My name before was Stash, but I didn't post much. Anyways, I've been wanting to meet up with everyone and see their Cadillacs for a while now.

I want to go on March 3rd, but what time frame are we looking at? I'm a huge boxing fan and my favorite boxer is on that night (go figure ;-). Anyone know any good sports bars that would be televising HBO that night? I live in Ybor, and I can tell you that around here there are not very many open places for a lot of people to park unless you get there early. Landry's is one of my favorite restaurants and their parking lot is huge, but I don't know what it would look like on a Saturday.

Anyways, count me in!

Playdrv4me
02-19-07, 06:05 PM
I think the sports bar idea sounds good too. My girlfriend told me there is a Hooters in Brandon with a huge parking area close to a Home Depot, though they probably dont have HBO for the fight.

So long as you get to Landrys around 6 or so, there is always plenty of parking, and their parking extends all the way down behind their building. Ive never seen it more than 75 percent full.

Brett
02-19-07, 06:52 PM
how about Green Iguana on Anderson?

Boombotz
02-19-07, 07:02 PM
I say Wings USA at US19 and Mcmullen Booth rd in Pinellas Park area. The place that looks like a oil filter and lube place but its a sports bar. They usually have car shows there.

Quaker Steak and Lube?!?! WTF is that?!?! :wtf: :gah: :mob:

Damn, we have some cool smilies in here...

Anyway.. If you want to change the location, let's just keep the "meet" in Tampa and take a cruise from there. A bunch of Caddys on the road will be nice. :)

Jesda
02-20-07, 12:48 AM
Clearwater is next door to Tampa, basically. Its where the scientologists eat all the children.

I'm considering the Hilton Garden Inn North and Crowne Plaza East. Travelocity users seem to like them and they're only $100.

For a meet like this, we should all gather at some place loud, fun, and informal. Sports bars seem to be the winner.

Playdrv4me
02-20-07, 01:52 AM
I found a pretty good spot tonight. Theres a Hooters across the Gandy bridge on the way to Largo with plenty of parking in an open area that looks to be a good size and probably doesnt get very packed due to its somewhat decentralized location.

Its also convenient to get to from any direction. If your in South tampa, you can cross the gandy bridge and veer right on 686 (Roosevelt), and its on the left side. If your coming from the North or Airport area, you can hop on 275 South and get off on Roosevelt blvd, and your just about there.

I think short of the Mall, anyplace in the tampa city limits is either gonna suck like Stoney said, or be packed to the gills like Brett said.

Jesda dont forget you can crash with me if you need to.

Brett
02-20-07, 08:54 AM
Ok, i'm not trying to be a pain in the ass but lets pick a spot that is centrally located. Otherwise people are gonna say they are coming and at the last minute realize they have to go from Brandon to Pinellas. Thats why I suggested Green Iguana which shares a parking lot with a 20 screen movie theater(lotsa parking) and it is right off the veterans. We certainly dont have to go where i am suggesting but for the sake of getting people to show up, lets keep it in the middle somewhere. There is also a Boston's restaurant and at least one other restaurant in there.

Brett
02-20-07, 08:57 AM
Sal, how much are you looking to spend per night? And what type of thing do you and Danielle like to do?

jonnyd
02-20-07, 09:25 AM
the cadddyyyy line!!! Can't wait!!! I will meet anywhere without sea walls!! :D I preferably like safe areas as well...where no one will key a caddy!:thumbsup:

Lord Cadillac
02-20-07, 10:21 AM
Sal, how much are you looking to spend per night? And what type of thing do you and Danielle like to do?
Price I'll leave to Danielle. She handles our finances (I don't want to know anything about it!). Stuff to do? I think we're just going to explore the area.. We've never been to Tampa...

The movie theater idea sounds pretty good - for a central meeting place.. We can hang out there for awhile, and then cruise to wherever we decide to go... If we can at least make this official, I can publicize it...

Brett
02-20-07, 10:23 AM
My recomendation would be the Marriot Waterside...its close to channelside and downtown...walking distance to some great places to hang out....what day are you getting in?

http://marriott.com/property/propertypage/TPAMC

jonnyd
02-20-07, 10:26 AM
yes that marriott would be a GREAT place for you guys to stay...it is in the middle of all the nice places. I recommend it...I usually always stay there every gasparilla. Nice hotel!:thumbsup: We could throw a hotel party ind danielle and sals room!!!!!! LOL j/k :D

Brett
02-20-07, 10:31 AM
Or try this one, brand new and downtown, trolley to channelside

If you like the night club/dance scene try this one, it in ybor city, grittier than channelside, pretty crazy

Lord Cadillac
02-20-07, 11:11 AM
I think Danielle already booked a LaQuinta.. We're on a budget! :p

Brett
02-20-07, 11:19 AM
ah...ok....well then just beware of location...try to stay around Downtown or westshore...when you zero in on it run it by Boombotz or myself, you dont want to end up in the wrong part of town

Ybor is basically a scaled down French Quarter...they are fights...but there is fun as well

humtake
02-20-07, 11:43 AM
Haha, yeah Ybor is pretty bad. Imagine living there and trying to get the city to fix the roads, etc. It's a pain in the ass... luckily I'm moving soon.

The trolley lets you get from Ybor to Channelside easily so no matter where you stay you can do both. I'm an original Tampon born and raised, so I can tell you where to go if you need suggestions.

For the meet, I'd like to come out and see everyone's Caddy even if we don't go to a sports bar. I'll record the fight if I have to, but anywhere in Tampa, St. Pete or Clearwater is good with me. I enjoy getting out.

So where is the final destination at this point??

Lord Cadillac
02-20-07, 01:04 PM
Okay, Danielle said the LaQuinta is in a bad area.. And that the recommendations so far are sold out.. What about the Crowne Plaza East? How's that?

Thanks...

02-20-07, 01:19 PM
We're leaning toward the Crown Plaza East since I get a travel agent discount..

Lady Danielle
02-20-07, 04:46 PM
I checked on the Jillians thing, not there! Anyway..this is my input into this whole thing. There are going to be some underage people..so the bar thing...how about a TGIF or something along the line. Cheescake was a good idea. Something thats diverse in food for us healthy eaters..but good for you fried meat eaters..and the atmoshere is casual, open late...bar if you want it.... hows bowling at splitsvile in channelside? I love bowling..Hey hows the aquarium???

Jesda
02-20-07, 06:29 PM
Travelocity has some excellent last-minute deals to Florida. Click on "Last Minute Packages" at the top. A flight + rental car is $75 cheaper than a flight alone! Same for flight + hotel.

I'm going to crash at Ian's and leave Monday morning, giving me Sunday to do some sightseeing.

Jesda
02-20-07, 06:41 PM
FLIGHT HAS BEEN BOOKED. Arriving in Tampa on Monday the 3rd at 1:15pm.

Playdrv4me
02-20-07, 07:41 PM
Danielle/Sal, my mom works at the Wyndham Westshore and she gets half off. Dont know how firm your booking is, but if youre interested I can find out if that applies to Friends as well as Family.

As far as the Restaurants, I really dont think the centralized thing matters all that much so long as its an easy place to get to... Hell I traveled 10 miles last night just to go to Cheddar's since Tampa doesnt have a single one. The way the roads are setup here its easy to do. 275 South empties into the across the bay communities and 275 North comes right back.

Danielle, you had a good idea with TGIF... There is one on Hillsborough Ave. off Dale Mabry highway (the main drag into South Tampa) and its got a CompUSA parking lot it shares with plenty of parking. Otherwise I really like the Hooters in Largo, or the International Mall Cheesecake factory. I did forget were not all 21... would want everyone to be comfortable.

Lady Danielle
02-20-07, 10:04 PM
Thanks..but the crowne was $65.00 our price...good deal..Wyndam does look amazing...maybe for the next meet..ill check with you first. I say Fridays..even though I want cheescake...only because cheaper....more casual atmosphere and sounds like its in a good spot for what we need...how bout input on this and a vote?

Jesda
02-20-07, 11:18 PM

Ill check out the parking situation at TGIF more closely tomorrow or Thursday. Its still in Tampa and in a centralized location in the city, so that should satisfy that requirement too. Only downside I know of, is that theres a club or something that opened in the same parking lot, but it doesnt get going til late at night, and even then theres alot of parking left over from Compusa and the strip mall adjacent to it.

The other thing with TGIF is that even though its not a huge restaurant, they can probably put tables together for us with enough advanced notice along the window sides. Some places are gonna be too packed inside for us to all be able to sit together, let alone park together.

Brett's Green Iguana idea also reminded me theres a Green Iguana, Texas Roadhouse, Bennigan's and Starbucks altogether with an AMC 24 Theater off Veterans Expressway. Plenty of parking too.

Anyway, if we have a consensus on TGIF soon hopefully...ill go check it out.

The locals should be in charge of finding a place to eat. Ian, you've been appointed to Director of Dinner. TGIF and Hooters seem to be top contenders. All a matter of which one offers the best parking and can accommodate all of us.

I'd prefer TGIF over Hooters because of the crowd. I haven't gone to a "cool" Hooters yet.. It won't be fun after we're all in jail from having to beat up a bunch of drunk *******s joking around about our meet.

Our office used to be in the business park right across the street from the Veteran's 24. The parking lot is huge and would be a good place to meet up. They have built some new restaurants there since I last went so there is definately a myriad of choices.

Best bet might be to have everyone meet up in the lot and then take a look at what is around. Everything is close so it's easy to see your options and then choose.

Lord Cadillac
02-21-07, 12:07 PM
We're going to go with Brett's idea - we just need an exact location...

The first post of this discussion has been updated with the meeting place. If any changes need to be made, please PM me with the details. I'm not sure if I have an EXACT location spotted-out. If I don't, please let me know as I'm about to send an email to 114 Tampa Bay Cadillac Owners members...

Brett
02-21-07, 12:27 PM
basically this is an area with 3-4 restaurants and a movie theater. Whoever gets there first can find an open part of the lot and park there....im not sure i can give exact coordinates. if you need directions the map is in a post i made above. LOOK FOR Green Iguana, Boston's or a large AMC theater

Playdrv4me
02-21-07, 12:43 PM
Keep in mind... the parking lot at Veterans DOES fill up rapidly on Saturday nights. (Im talkin people parking up on the grass dividers, I know cause Ive had to do it :) ) We will need to arrive as early as possible to miss the movie crowd depending on whats opening. I recommend parking either in front of, or to the side of Vallarta's Mexican Restaurant. On Saturday nights that is the main area that has any amount of open parking for multiple people. If thats not available, than the other option is probably all the way on the other side of the restaurants next to Boston's.

We just need to get there as early as possible.

Anytime early evening like 5-8 would be fine. There will be plenty of parking there then since it's a Saturday.

I don't really have any recent pics of my Caddy, but you can go to my myspace page to see a picture of it if you have an account. Just so if I'm there first you can look for it.

OK......possibly have some bad news. I (Julie) was sick earlier this week with a bad virus. Tommy is not feeling so hot today, though he might be just under the weather we will have to wait and see. If he gets the virus I had it will hit him fast and hard and we will not be attending. The other problem is my mother-in-law that was going to watch the baby came down with the virus yesterday. If she still is sick tomorrow then I will be out a sitter. This thing is contagious and I don't want it back, nor do I want the baby getting it again. So if Tom is feeling fine and my sitter is not we might just stop up for 2 hours or so with the kid and then go before the drinking really starts. I will keep you up to date. There is always a chance I could pull some strings and get a last minute sitter too, but you just never know.

What was the Bill comment about? was that when Julie went screaming into the bathroom? pretty funny...wish i remembered it.

Let me amend that to say I definitely know what type of situation i would have made that comment in, I just don't remember specifically when I said it.

No I heard you say it when we were walking in my friends house in the garage.

Brett
03-05-07, 06:35 PM
ok...so everyone knows, his friends house was about a 2 out of 10 on the scale of "Buffalo Billness". And the 2 is mainly because it was a house occupied only by men, which is a least a little creepy in and of itself.

No I heard you say it when we were walking in my friends house in the garage.

I thought he was actually asking you, Tom.. He was skerd. I've never heard anyone refer to someone's house as "Buffalo Bill", so - I found it uniquely funny.. Nothing against your friend, though!


ok...so everyone knows, his friends house was about a 2 out of 10 on the scale of "Buffalo Billness". And the 2 is mainly because it was a house occupied only by men, which is a least a little creepy in and of itself.

Nah.. There was really no Buffalo Billness going on there.. He seemed a little Harley Davidson Batchelor-like (you know how us batchelors can be a bit unorganized before we're married) but his house was pretty spotless..

I forgot his name but he was an alright guy.. I can't seem to shake the feeling I've met him before.. I must have run into him in New York many years ago.. I just don't know where.. I get the same feeling with Julie now as well.. I KNOW I've seen those two before. :p

Jesda,

I sent you the photos! Looks like Big Fancy Camera + Inexperienced user = photos that are OK, but not great. The available light photos would have been real nice if I had brought a tripod...

Please post these!

Edwin,

I am impressed with the pictures you took of the cars. It almost looks like daytime considering it was a nasy rainy night. I know you have to have a very steady hand when you working with such exposure.

It was great meeting you Edwin and Jesda.

The outdoor pics came out OK, but when you're shooting without flash, you need a tripod... I'll bring a little one next time!

Inside pics? I need a better flash unit! :)

There was somebody at the meet wearing a gorgeous Cadillac jacket and he said he got it on e-bay. I looked and the only ones were from people either in Stockholm or Taiwan. Where did you get yours from? I don't trust those overseas people. I find it hard to believe I can't get that jacket from somebody here in the states.

Thanks.
