    Just testing the waters here to see if there is any interest in holding a Cars & Coffee event in the Hudson Valley. Today I stopped at a place that has great parking and adjacent to a Dunkin' Donuts. The DD Manager was very open to the idea of people coming on a Saturday or Sunday morning. The location is in Wappingers Falls, NY. What is the interest level for such an event? Of course we'd welcome all noteworthy cars, not just Ferrari. I look forward to the feedback.

    I'm interested. I live in Katonah and it'll be a nice drive up Rt 9.

    I'm in the city, but grew up in the Hudson Valley. I'd definitely be up for the drive or ride up there.

    New Canaan is no longer and the Greenwich meet is only a few times per year. Plus, if held on Saturday mornings, this could be a nice breakfast stop for those heading to Lime Rock or even Monticello.

    It's a bit of a trek for me but I'd be in for once or twice a year, especially if it coincided with a Lime Rock event.

    At least two of us are going to the C&C event in Newburgh, NY on Sunday, May 21 to check it out. I've been told that the site is on Rt 32 right off Exit 10 of I-84. Looking forward to seeing others there.

    That group meets next on June 4 and 25. But, in the mean time, we're looking for a site in Dutchess County.

    Ken, you used to come down to our C&C in NJ, right? I remember you and your blue 308.

    Yes, Tony you are correct. I have the Blue 308 and use to come to your events.
    The distance from here has kept me from getting there more often.
    You put on a great event, you are very friendly and make everyone feel welcome.
    I try to do the same at our events.
    I do want to come to another of your events, they have fallen on the same day as ours.
    This week I suggested to my wife we go to your event on Tuesday May 30th from 6:30 -
    9:00 PM at the Fireplace Restaurant in Paramus, NJ.
    Hopefully, I will see you there.

    Ken - let me know how things work out tomorrow (Sunday) at the event. I won't be able to make it as I am working that day.

    Also, we have a site that is adjacent to the Taconic Parkway for a Dutchess County based Cars & Coffee event. The owner of the site is welcoming Ferraris and other exotics as his brother is a Ferrari owner. The site offers easy access to those coming from the south (NYC and Westchester) and is about 1.5 miles north of the I-84/Taconic Parkway intersection making it easy for those from CT and the west (Orange County). Maybe later in the year we can get this underway, I'm just overwhelmed at the moment.

    Vito,
    Our event went well on Sunday - weather was perfect.
    Hopefully you can attend our next gathering on July 9th.

    Your Dutchess county location sounds like a good spot. Looking forward to attending.
