We have all eaten pizza and we have been to Toppers, but we keep coming to these monthly socials every third Thursday of the month. Pizza can be a very balanced meal choice and Toppers is a terrific place to eat, so what is the attraction of our Taste-of-the-Town events?
I would say that when you add the special people attending, coupled with the terrific Corvettes we all drive, you have a combination that can’t be beat and are guaranteed a good and tasty time out…plus no dishes to wash.
Toppers is a locally owned and operated pizza restaurant company based in Ventura County with 9 locations all offering selections that are fresh, healthy and great tasting! They advertise a place that is friendly and comfortable place, which we can all agree it is. Thanks to the Topper’s staff for their great service to our 37 attendees.
Can I say more about Taste-of-the-Town? Why, yes I can. Besides the already mentioned positives, TOT is a gathering where we sometimes witness surprises. There have been plenty of times when old friends have dropped in for a visit and even times when one of us rolled in with a new Corvette. Our Jun 21st social was indeed one of those times, but maybe a step-up from those other times.
At this Taste-of-the-Town, we drove into the lot and immediately took notice of a Sebring Orange Corvette among the several other Vettes present. Dang, you say! That’s a ZR1! Who did it? Who just bought what is surely the fastest Corvette in the club? The answer…Ron Nolan. Dude, what a car!
We will be seeing lots more of Ron, and Donna, at upcoming events as they save their C1 and C2 for those special local events.
Until then, we will meet again at another fine event put together by our Activities Committee and maybe witness another TOT surprise.
