Club Mangia # 01 - Buca di Beppo

1 Comment »

We had so much fun at our very first NEODESMO Club Mangia last night at Buca di Beppo in Strongsville, Ohio! 14 Members made it through the traffic and shared an Italian meal for two hours, then roared off into the rain.   We'd met most of you at the Launch Party but we did get to see some new faces!  Again, what a great group of Ducatisti that call Northeast Ohio home!



You can see all of the pictures in our Facebook album

Our next Club Mangia is June 12th at Maggiano's in Beachwood:

In the meantime, don't forget that this SATURDAY is our 3rd Ducs @ the 'Bucks at 2PM at the Starbucks in Aurora.  Several members are planning on meeting at Northern Ohio Ducati and Triumph in Akron that morning, then riding to Starbucks.  From there, you can ride down 82 for a twisty cruise through Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  Additionally, we're told that BMW Motorcycles of Cleveland is having an open house that day and they are just up the road on 43 from Starbucks.

Also, it was announced last night that we are eagerly awaiting a response from Ducati as they've confirmed they received our DOC application!

NEODESMO First Club Mangia This Week!

No Comments »

This Wednesday is the second Wednesday of the month so that means it's time for Club Mangia!!  We'll see you at the Buca di Beppo in Strongsville at 7PM.

Buca di Beppo is a family style restaurant with in-your-face Italian decor to get us in the spirit!  If you are coming alone, you may leave pretty stuffed or have more to take home with you!  Or, you might find someone else that will share a dish.

There is a post on our Google Group for those on the north side to meet up for the ride to the restaurant.   Please post there or Facebook if you want to meet up with others near your area.  We'll see you there!
