Hey Northwest guys just wanted to post this flyer I got e-mailed to me today. There's going to be a float party on Lake Sammamish during the NWWSA surf competition this year. Linking the stereos of all the boats. Should be fun. If you don't know about the event alot of pro riders come out for this.

Wakesounds 07-13-2011 9:13 PM

Right on! That's about 20 min from my house.

05mobiuslsv 07-13-2011 9:26 PM

liljohn I got the e-mail today too, I'll be there.

joebob 07-13-2011 9:46 PM

Pdx will be there.

tyler97217 07-13-2011 11:11 PM

Hmmmmm this is my anniversary. Anyone have any good excuses to help me get away with this?

05mobiuslsv 07-13-2011 11:19 PM

Yeah a trek to Seattle with boat in tow. Action filled day on the lake, take the wife out to dinner afterwards. HERO!

brianinpdx 07-14-2011 9:45 AM

I'll see ya all there. Looking forward to it. Going to be a loud loud weekend. -Brian

polarbill 07-14-2011 10:19 AM

Tyler, like Jeremy said just make it up to her by taking her to the Canlis or something. Just make sure to bring your sports coat. They don't allow Ruffian in that place.

tonyv420 07-14-2011 10:42 AM

this weekend keeps getting better! see ya all there!

JohnAr 07-14-2011 11:16 AM

I'll be there too, Diggs I owe you dinner anyway -- pick somewhere nice for the lady?

tyler97217 07-14-2011 11:27 AM

John - you are right you do still owe me dinner. Hope all is well with your ride. We can settle up on that next time or over some beers.

We have reservations on Friday night at Metropolitan Grill. Is that still the in place for steak? I will look up Canlis. Have not heard of it. She does not know about this trip or anything, so maybe the Friday night deal will win me some brownie points and we can jump on someone's boat on Saturday. I know of a few boats coming up from down here.

This event sounds like a blast. We will see....

I have never been to the Met but have aleays heard it is really good. I think it is a little more of a bar atmoshpere then romantic. If you want something a little more romantic I would look at El Guacho, Canlis or Palisades. Another place that I like and I think has the best steak I have had(I haven't tried any of the other 3 restaurants I mentioned) is Daniels Brioler. They have a couple locations. They have a nice romantic atmosphere, great views, amazing food and amazing service.

Canlis is the most exclusive restaraunt in Seattle as far as I have heard. It is the only place I know where you have to have a sport coat. I have heard stories about how they use to make people with crappier cars park down the street. That could be all hearsay though.

brianinpdx 07-14-2011 1:10 PM

Tyler - +1 for Daniels. It's a good place!

phatboypimp 07-14-2011 1:42 PM

JAK's in Issaquah - close to the lake with good steak.

travisz 07-14-2011 1:42 PM

Why dont we have something like this in so cal?????????????????????? Who wants to start one?

hatepain 07-14-2011 2:13 PM

El Gaucho is theeeee best place in Seattle for a steak. Amazing food, atmosphere and service. Its great afterwards to go down to the Pampas room to catch some live jazz and drink cocktails. If you really want to make it a night just stay at The Inn at El Gaucho, I've stayed there and the rooms are awesome. For me Daniels, The Met, Ruth Criss and the like just cannot quite compare. http://www.elgaucho.com/elgaucho/

If you like your steaks the same get the Chateaubriand which is carved tableside, do the cesar salad (also prepared tableside) and for desert get the Bananas Foster (again prepared tableside) Another fun one is the flaming lamb skewer. If you want an inexpensive (relatively speaking) bottle of wine the Berringer knights valley is excellent.

I had my 30th in the Pampas room, there was some miscommunication on our part about how many guest would be there and that we'd be ordering dinner (we bought a bunch of appetizers). Some of the guests complained so El Gauch comped my bar bill wich surpassed the $500 mark and additionally sent out 5 $200 vouchers for dinner. Their service is the best and if they let you down they make it up to you.

my $.02

05mobiuslsv 07-14-2011 2:19 PM

Tyler the Met is really nice, she will love it.

I really like Jaks and it is a great alternative to a super high priced steak joint. My old roommates both work at the one in West Seattle. The only disadvantage I see is that they don't take reservations. You can get a really good steak with a starch or vegetables for 30-35. You might even have a slight chance of getting out of there for around a c note with an app, 2 dinners and a desert if you don't drink like a fish.

On a side note the burger at Jaks is the Shiz. It is about $10 with fries and add bacon and blue cheese and you got something truely special. I usually get the burger instead of a steak but that might be because I am a cheapskate. Oh yeah, at happy hour(only 4:30 to 5:30) the burger is 4 or 5 bucks and that includes fries.

Oh man, I am hungry. Almost nothing better then a Blue Cheese bacon burger cooked medium with some delicious fries and a couple ice cold Manny's.

tyler97217 07-14-2011 3:43 PM

Ok....Brett.... You have changed my mind. Many others have confirmed your suggestion and a reservation is switched to Canlis. Thanks for that! We have El Gaucho here in Portland too and it is great ambiance and a great restaurant, I really think there are better steaks out there and I want a new experience. There service and food is amazing though.

Lets switch back to the topic at hand. The "Float Party". Sorry original poster for the hijack. Who knows maybe we will see you out there.

05mobiuslsv 07-14-2011 3:45 PM

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming. Be sure to tune into KPUN when you all show up. Details will be available on site.

tyler97217 07-14-2011 3:48 PM

Ha ha. You guys are going to love KPUN up there. It rocks!
Bring those bouncy balls for the tie off too.

newty 07-14-2011 11:23 PM

tonyv420 07-15-2011 11:07 AM

brucemac 07-15-2011 1:44 PM

Wakesounds 07-17-2011 9:31 PM

Has anyone been to this before? I'm just curios how many people it draws out to the lake.

05mobiuslsv 07-17-2011 10:28 PM

I went last year, pretty cool local event. More people will be there this year for sure.

brianinpdx 07-18-2011 1:49 AM

should probably take some pics this year and post up

liljohn 07-18-2011 7:08 PM

Ok we went and checked out the tie up spot. Looks good on the back side of the sand bar. It will keep the boats protected and give us a sand bar to hang out on. Now who is bringing the bbq?

brucemac 07-19-2011 11:30 AM

over by the park?

05mobiuslsv 07-19-2011 11:36 AM

Yeah just to the left of the park where the river dumps in.

hatepain 07-19-2011 12:53 PM

Hopefully the weather makes a change this is nothing short of horse SCHITT!

05mobiuslsv 07-19-2011 12:57 PM

Extended forcast looked good, but we all know the weather is subject to change by the second around here.

brianinpdx 07-19-2011 5:57 PM

If the weather makes a change.... I say we land 25 boats in Bakes marine parking lot and break out the tents tunes and food! -Brian

Hate you coming too?

-Brian

So what happened in Portland 4th weekend. Heard there was a mass exodus issue from tie up. Everyone moved out to a free float from the pumping tubes...

05mobiuslsv 07-19-2011 9:05 PM

I don't know, what happened?

CobraRob 07-19-2011 9:45 PM

Well if I knew the details I wouldn't have asked lol


I just heard a bunch of people were tied up at the new spot where someone was broadcasting (assumed you said it was kupn). And then something happened and everyone left and tied up together off the tubing and played own music? :whoknows:

05mobiuslsv 07-19-2011 9:49 PM

Hmmm didn't hear that. I wasn't there though. kPUN is coming to the Seattle area.

Will have to get details when I get back to Portland. I assumed you were the one with the broadcaster. That's why I asked

Not yet but the nights young...oh you mean to the event. had plans to go to Crescent Bar but we're having a hell of a time getting a condo so if that falls through then yes I'll be there. If we have to break out the tents I'll bring the speaker skate, the worlds loudest skateboard.

joebob 07-19-2011 10:42 PM

It was great, until some As@$%ole started yelling and cussing at girls and kids because he couldn't rock his two tower speakers and let his chicks dance on his boat to house/techno music. We shoved him off so he could play elsewhere. A few followed him etc. Not a big deal, but when 6-7 boats are tied up and playing the same thing, ya deal with it or ya don't. Nobody will ever agreee on music.

tyler97217 07-19-2011 10:45 PM

Cobra Rob - are you one of the x45's? were you guys the ones the had the accident with the bayliner last week on the upper? Heard it was an x 45 that untied the week before downtown. if so what happened? let me know next time you are out so we can say hello.

hatepain 07-19-2011 10:54 PM

You read about that on team talk??? Yeah it was mine. Sucks still not sure what's gonna happen with it since I have nothing to claim there is no damage. Get back to Portland tomorrow. Might go out Friday since I just bought a new inland surfer swallow v2. Otherwise will be out on Saturday for sure on the lower but doubt we will do much if any riding that day.

tyler97217 07-20-2011 6:04 PM

cobra rob
no i saw some pics of the other boat (babeliner) and people that saw it happen were talking about it last week and heard it was the x45 that untied and put two and two together that you might be the same person.
will say hello next time I see you out.

Back to the "float party" in Seattle......

I wanna see too. The officer would not let me over by the other guys boat to talk to him or see the damage. Crazy since we had only been pushed off dock was not even under power. Surprised people talking about it too there was only 2 other boats there that had like 1 or 2 people on them.

liljohn 07-31-2011 10:00 AM

Awesome time at the raft party! It was great to put faces with names. We need to do another one with a little less drama.;)

hatepain 07-31-2011 11:29 AM

Yeah it was a blast for sure and like you said meet people in person. Thanks to those that help put it together.

bullit4888 07-31-2011 1:08 PM

I had a great time. Didn't get a chance to meet everyone so another one would be great.

tyler97217 08-01-2011 10:06 AM

Yeah good times. I have spoken to Ranger Rick and he is willing to come and work security for the next event. What a tool he was!!!
There maybe an event on the Columbia between Portland and Vancouver, WA in two weeks if any of you are interested in coming down this direction. Details to come if it stays together.....
