I am making plans for a "local" get together.... That being said I am starting this thread as an open invitation for area members to join Mrs. Tux... and I on December the 6th at Johnny Carinos in Columbus, Indiana. Tenatively 6 pm would be the time of dinner.

Afterwards we may do a little Christmas shopping at the Fair Oaks Mall if the group is interested.

By posting this thread I would like to know who might be interested so that I can make the reservation in advance. I also need to let Santa know......

Remember .... Tis the season to be Jolly.......

                                                 Tux...

Sounds like fun, but unfortunately we've got a previous engagement that day over in Illinois.  However, that one has been an "on-again, off-again" kind of thing.  If it does fall through, we'd love to come.   I'll keep ya postedmanget12008-11-23 12:05:15

Naw its for Butchie now that Blue Beast of his.....

Man I sure hope some more of the "local" C3VR folks see this and sign up. I know there were several new sign up members at Funfest and I was hoping this would be a good opertunity to sit, eat, relax, and talk Vettes -n- stuff with em.

Maybe talk about starting some monthly cruises when springtime rolls around...

Just a thought.....

No haggle deal for $74.00 a night. I would place a "Name your own price" bid of $60.00 and see if it will go. I use Priceline for this.

Mitch,
 
There are two major hotel groups.  The first one is at I65 and SR46.  It has a Sleep Inn, Holiday Inn, Knights Inn, and a couple more.  The second major area is at I65 and US31.  It has a lot of hotels.  Most have been built in the last 5 years or so.  It has a Holiday Inn Express, Hilton Gardens, Red Roof, Best Western,...   The I65 and US31 area also has the Edinburgh Outlet Mall and a large antique mall.
 
If I can help let me know.
 
Tom

Knights Inn was cheaper but I didn't like the reviews.

Red Roof Inn has the best deal and is a nice hotel with a no haggle price of $60.00. It is in Taylorsville. Which is about 7 miles from downtown Columbus. The outdoor Edinburgh Mall is very nice and could be something we could visit versus the Fair Oaks Mall.
