I suppose there is only one Capital Grille in Scottsdale, but just to be safe is this it?

This event is now full with 46 attendees.

Gentlemen,

Fresno, CA GT owner and dealer Marv Rose and his wife are joining us with another couple so our event is now full. I’m looking forward to another gathering with fellow Forum members this Thursday night. These dinners are always a lot of fun.

Reminder for Thursday's GT Owner/Barrett-Jackson Dinner.

Gentlemen,

When you arrive at the Capital Grille it's easiest to valet park your car, valet parking is free other than tips. Tell the hostess you are attending the Ford GT dinner and they will show you to The Wine Room. If you drive a GT you will self park (I suggest tipping the valet $10 or $20 up front for taking their best and most protected spots) in front where the valet staff will watch over your GT during dinner. Arrive at 7pm, Capital Grille is less than 15 minutes from Barrett Jackson. Cocktails from 7 to 8 and everyone will be seated at 8pm for dinner.

IMPORTANT....the tab will be paid for in CASH, no credit cards, so hit an ATM beforehand and show up with a pocket full of $20's.

The address of the restaurant is.....
Capital Grille
16489 N. Scottsdale Road
Scottsdale, AZ 85254
(480) 348-1700
(South East corner of Scottsdale Road and Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd.)

If you have a question or need anything TEXT ME at (602) 430-4877 and I'll call you right back.

Cheers!!!!

ma.
FYI - while the pictures show this restaurant to be quite posh looking, there is no requirement to dress up, so if you're wondering what to pack, you don't have to pack anything special for this dinner. If shorts and a t-shirt are your thing (Barry), it'll be OK.
Your posh with out dressing up!

Car Week in Scottsdale: I couldn’t find my dinner partners at a crowded restaurant and accidentally crashed a large Ford GT party!

(The parking lot looked like a millionaire’s concours!)
