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

Sooie, pig, pig, pig, pig!  It was off to the Hog Pit on Tanque Verde Road for My MiNi has the Munchies on October 9th.  We invaded their back room and then promptly got in trouble for trying to manage the fans and climate control ourselves. Oops!  But we did have a good turnout that enjoyed a dinner of BBQ smoked on location and beans and all the fixin’s.

The weekend of October 25th was a busy weekend for our MiNis.  The last Saturday breakfast was at Teresa’s Mosiac Cafe located up on a hill just off of Silverbell Road.  Their gorgeous mosaic tables are hand-made and each is unique.  We enjoyed the Mexican food and excellent service.

Then our MiNis got the stripes scared off of them as we spent a night in haunted Bisbee, Arizona. After our breakfast at Teresa’s, we motored down (including a little side pre-trip to drop off a non-Mini vehicle) to the once booming copper mining town.  We had some time before dinner so our members scattered to do their own thing. Some took a jeep tour, some took the mine tour, some went shopping and antiquing, and who knows what others did considering we had 2 couples celebrating their wedding anniversaries on that day! Dinner was at the never disappointing Cafe Roka in downtown Bisbee.  24 members enjoyed the 5-course meal on third floor. After that, some members took a guided walking ghost tour of the most haunted spots in Bisbee. It was dark, but not stormy, and the stories told by the guide were interesting. Bisbee knows how to rock a party and later that night there was one in front of the Copper Queen hotel. Never fear though, everyone survived the night and made it back to Tucson!
