I actually prefer keg beer to canned beer, since keg beer is fresher. I list them as: 1) Bottle 2) Keg 3) Can. - buy yeah, it's beer!

True story? It's not known 100% what Paul Revere yelled that evening, but it wasn't the above, because they considered themselves to be British (i.e. it wouldn't make sense). The most likely expression would have been either, "the Regulars are out" or "the Regulars are coming" (Regulars was the name for the King's standard combat troops, what we commonly call "Red Coats").

Keg beer > bottled beer ainec. Except home brews, obvi.

When is this? I'd really like to go. The track is fun and I live close enough that it wouldn't be a hassle.

Probably while you're on your honeymoon.

Only downside to keg beer is all the foam, which is somewhat avoidable, but still always more foam than you get from a bottle.

Of course it's not a true story. If Paul Revere was going on a "secret ride" he wouldn't be SHOUTING anything.

And three other men made the same ride, two of them riding for longer distances. Revere's name is just the one that fit into a proper rhyming scheme when Longfellow wrote the poem that made the ride famous.

Has there been a date picked for this yet? If it happens to be when I am down in Asbury or Long Branch visiting family I would love to go.

No, he did shout. Once he was a safe distance beyond the Boston sentries it wouldn't have mattered, as the Redcoats were essentially hemmed in at that point and the countryside was Patriot. As towns were woken up people rang church and meeting bells and repeatedly shot muskets to wake up everyone else in town and the surrounding countryside.

Well, they were the original departures from Boston. One almost got caught and got scared and didn't make it too far. Revere actually DID get captured by the British that night, which is an interesting bit of history not taught in school. But the truth is it was a well organized spiderweb of many riders, like a relay team with fresh horses, but the names of most are lost to time (at least in part to the fact out was an act of treason). By analyzing what towns militias did/did not respond and/or their approximate response times they've figured out some of the routes and where the web was broken (failed) in a few cases. Hackett-Fisher wrote a great book on this if people are interested.

I'm not sure if people wanted the festivities to continue after the track but if sushi was to be part of the day, there are two places where we could get a fairly large number of us together because they're Hibachi places.

Sawa and Kanji.

Sawa is right on Rt 35/36 so it is very close to the track and would have easy access back to the parkway to get home. It also serves Alkeyhaul.

Kanji has the single best sushi I've ever had but it is bring-your-own.

Of course there are a ******** of other places to go grab a bite but those fit the 'sushi + track' discussed months back.

I would never have guessed the HFBoards demographic would pick a sushi restaurant.

There are a ******** of places to get a good dinner in if people wanted. I just know those two places have the potential due to have a private area that could hold all that may show up.

Although, Krinkle has a new grill...and a backyard...and is also close to the parkway
