The final February event promised a beautiful sunny winter run to Agoura Hills for a well-earned meal. Food is one thing, but we all know the attraction really is a Corvette Caravan.
The attendees were instructed to assemble in the Wal-Mart lot at 10:30 AM for the required headcount and drivers’ meeting and assemble they did. It was a task to just count the Corvettes with the turnout for this one. The final count was 53 people in 27 Corvettes. Great turnout!
Corvettes of all colors and nearly all generations made up the assembly that yours truly witnessed heading out westbound toward their ultimate destination, Ladyface Ale Companie on Agoura Road in Agoura Hills. (see page 16 for my alibi).
Great patio seating under perfect weather complimented the fantastic food at Ladyface. The Alehouse & Brasserie was established by local residents from Agoura Hills in 2009 and was named L.A. Weekly’s 2013 Best Brewery in LA. Ladyface is known for their award-winning Belgian, French and American style ales and is one of Los Angeles County’s first revival craft breweries.
But wait, it appears there were more things in store. A good number added yet another destination to an already lovely run with a stop off for more Corvette camaraderie at another great destination, Rosenthal Winery in Malibu.
The majority of the group also elected to make it an ocean side run and continued down Kanan Road to PCH for a great drive along the beach. The ocean waters and views were outstanding.
Enroute home, a short detour to Santa Paula Chevrolet was in order for what was described as a photo-op. It looked like it might have been more than that with one of our couples getting the feel for a 2018 ZO6!
While many parts of the USA deal with winter in their own way with their Corvettes garaged until summer, things are different in these parts. Driving weather is at least one advantage we enjoy here in SoCal. What a fantastic day. Nothing but the finer things for a SCVCC run!
