Please note: The run start location is not changing. We will continue to start from the Park and Ride at Bushnell’s Basin. I apologize for anything I said that was misleading on Saturday.
After Run Meeting Location December 15, 2018 – Bruegger’s Bagels
A couple of us checked out the Village Bakery Café at Eastview Mall on Sunday morning, and we were very favorably impressed. The food was very good with a larger selection, including French toast, a variety of egg sandwiches,pastries, and they have a selection of coffees and cappuccino. The seating area is up a flight of stairs – and they have 30 metal chairs – so we won’t have to worry about ruining the chairs with our wet running gear. The external entrance is located near P.F. Changs. In the warmer weather they have outdoor seating. I spoke to the manager and he seemed to think they could handle our group as longas we gave him some advanced notice, so that he has enough help on hand. We should probably wait until the holiday traffic has subsided before we try it.
