FCMC at Caffeine & Octane - PLUS - MIATA Lunch Drive!!!!!!
Saturday, March 9, FCMC will once again be the First Coast Car Council “Club of the Month” at Caffeine & Octane Jacksonville. We will have our own special parking paddock in the Central Lot, down by the food court and the former Sears location. ALL MIATAS ARE WELCOME! The bouncy castles will be gone, so we will have plenty of space, but it is still limited, so come early! Last time we filled our space and still had Miatas parking all around.
Caffeine & Octane goes from 8AM-11AM, and parking opens at 7AM. We have a lot of Miatas in Jacksonville, and a lot of them attend Caffeine & Octane, so let’s fill our space up!
At 11AM, at the conclusion of C&O, all Miatas are invited to roll out with us for a “short” Miata drive for lunch. We will take a scenic drive through St John’s County, ending at the Sonic at SR13 in Fruit Cove. The drive will take us down some canopy roads, through farmlands, and along the river, and last about 1 hour. Yes, you could get from the mall to Sonic in under 20 minutes, but that’s not Miatas are for. 😉 ALL MIATAS PRESENT ARE WELCOME TO JOIN US ON THE DRIVE. If you have an FRS/GMRS radio, bring it, you will find it helpful. Drive routes will be available at the mall and posted online before the event. So shine ‘em up, and bring them out to the Avenues mall on March 9!
Find out what's cooking by joining us for a First Coast Miata Club. Meeting to be held Tuesday, March 12th at Culhane’s Irish Pub. The restaurant is located off Southside Blvd. right next to the Tinsletown movie theater. Dinner & Social at 6:00pm. Our meeting will be at 7:00pm. Topics of discussion will include upcoming events. Come early and hang out with fellow club members to get the most out of your evening
Let’s take a drive along the river, across the river, to eat lunch on the river at Renegades on the River. Our drive will begin at RaceTrac, 3106 Hwy 17, Green Cove Springs, FL 32043. It’s on US 17 at Russel Rd/CR207 just South of the Black Creek bridge. We will meet at 9AM, and roll out promptly at 9:20AM. From there we will take a winding journey across the river for a drive along riverfront homes, through farmland, woods and marshlands. Our destination will be Renegades on the River in the Crescent City/Welaka area. A delicious meal of seafood, burgers, pizza or other entrees awaits! You don’t have to be a renegade to come and have fun (but it helps!). Don’t forget your FRS/GMRS radio, and we’ll see you on the 30th!
