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

Mini and Munchkins, hosted by Mini of Tucson, was the first stop for our Minis in January on the 3rd.  The dealership was kind enough to lend us their conference room and after sipping coffee and munching donuts, we crammed into the back for our annual planning meeting. Lots of great ideas for places to go and places to eat were suggested and our schedule for the year began to fill up. Check out our calendar for upcoming events!

After all the rich holiday food, what better place to visit than May’s Counter where they serve yummy stick-to-your -ribs food like chicken and waffles, bacon Bloody Marys, flatiron steak, and catfish. We had 16 people join us for dinner despite mother nature throwing rain and chilly weather at us at the beginning of the month. Kathy Antonelli proposed a toast to honor Jan Couper who passed away at the end of December. Jan had an infectious smile, always a kind word, and she will be dearly missed.

Following this month’s wet theme: It was raining, it was pouring, the old man was snoring! But that didn’t keep 25 of us from rowing our MINIs to the Sunny Daze Cafe (ironic, huh?) for our Last Saturday breakfast on a really soggy morning. The food was good and service fine. We were supposed to go to the car show in Tubac that afternoon, but after a quick poll, we decided to all go our separate ways for the day. Pontoons were attached and we floated off in different directions…

Here’s hoping the rain brings lots of wildflowers but stays away for our February activities!
