M.A.D.M.E.N. Odometer-Where we went in December

The annual Dynamic MiNi Collective holiday party was at the U-Like Buffet located on River and Oracle. Cynthia Wallin wore her festive hat that has lots of good stories behind it (you’ll have to ask her about it next year), Patty Small brought home-made Mini themed ornaments to share with everyone and we had our gift exchange. Some of the interesting items making the rounds were the moose mug from Christmas Vacation, an Elvis guitar filled with popcorn, a kit to Rudolph your car, a couple  of Mini keychains, a bag designed by Patty, a Mini beret, bamboo bowls, and Santa having a potty.

After all the Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza and Festivus celebrations were over and done with we had to have breakfast, right? So our last Saturday breakfast was at Beyond Bread at Ina and Oracle. We had a turnout of 19 and enjoyed some good breakfast sandwiches and omelets and plenty of coffee to take the chill off.  We’re Tucsonans, it’s cold for us!

What’s in store for next year?  Grab your calendars and list of ideas for MADMEN 2015 adventures. Where do you want to eat? Where do you want to motor to? Where haven’t you been to or want to go back again? Saturday January 3, 2015 (yes, 2015 is coming at you like a freight train) at 10:30 AM we’ll be meeting at MINI of Tucson in their conference room. That’s right after MINIS and Munchkins. Coffee, doughnuts, conversation and we’ll let the ideas flow.

For more information on any event that the M.A.D.M.E.N. of Tucson have planned please email us.  madmenoftucson@gmail.com and check out the on line calendar.
