  • 2016 Jaguar XF-S Review

    2016-Jaguar-XF-S-front-three-quarter-motion-closer-crop1

    I had the pleasure of visiting Galpin Jaguar in Van Nuys to discuss the current model Jaguar XF (and XE and F-Pace – more on that in coming editions) and to check out Galpin’s current inventory – there is something for everyone from a few new XK’s to a wide selection of F-Types and XF’s. ...

  • PASSING OF JIM NEARY NOTED

    Neary

    It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of former JOC Member James (Jim) Neary. Jim joined the Club in 2005 and was a regular participant, with his wife Coreen, in the Concours circuit. In addition, the Neary’s membership in the Dana Point Yacht Club allowed the JOC the opportunity to hold ...

  • A Note from the Editor

    xfrs 1

    On this month’s cover of the Tales, we featured a very rare 2015 XF-RS in French Blue. This is a new, never titled example currently on display in the Galpin showroom. Fewer than 100 units of this car were imported and I’ve seen one in an insurance auction, so unfortunately, some have already met their ...

SADDLE PEAK BRUNCH

Saddle Peak Lodge, 06/26/2016, 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

SADDLE PEAK LODGE BRUNCH

SUNDAY, JUNE 19TH – MALIBU, CA

JUNE CLUB EVENT

 

Nestled in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains, Saddle Peak Lodge is LA’s most iconic fine dining & private event destination. Its critically-acclaimed New American menu is most notable for its emphasis on exotic wild game. Coupled with the Lodge’s award-winning service, rustic yet elegant ambiance, and rich history, Saddle Peak Lodge is just minutes away, but worlds apart.

BRUNCHIE AT THE SADDLE PEAK LODGE

By Creighton Turner

Do you all remember the great lunch time we had a few decades ago at the old Saddle Peak Lodge, when the rains poured down on us and filled up several of the leakier Jaggies as we tried to leave (one of them mine)? And a car wreck traffic mess on Topanga Canyon that made some of you miss the whole thing? Well, that was so much fun that your ever-clever BoD has decided we need to do it again, and so we shall.

Led by our intrepid, adventurous President, Charlie Hallums, we are planning to once again terrify the good folks at Saddle Peak with our pride of snarling Jaguars and owners. As those of you who read the title know this will be held on Sunday, June 19th, arriving there at 11:30ish o’clock so that we can all schmooze around a bit before going in at noon for our delightful brunch.

The restaurant offers a delightful prix fixe concoction for $35, plus tax, tip and drinks, offering an excellent and rapidly served brunch for very little moolah. The food is very good and the restaurant has been praised by many a praiseur. I think it is still owned by a Ph.D, so it must be good for your brain, mustn’t it?

For those who have not been before, Saddle Peak Lodge is a 100 year old roadhouse and supply point up in the Santa Monica Mountains, variously functioning in the past as a Pony Express stop, a hunting lodge, and a bordello (heh, heh, I knew that would wake some of you up). It was discovered as a hangout by the nearby Hollywood studio ranch glitterati in the golden 30’s and 40’s, and was frequented by legends such as Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Errol Flynn and Clark Gable. It is easily found by simply taking 1496 turns up Topanga Canyon, or by setting your GPS to 419 Cold Canyon Road, Calabasas, California, phone 818 222 3888.

Alternatively, as many have done before, you may gather at my house (260 State St, Pasadena) at around 9:30, nosh on a few life shortening lardo goodies, and we’ll all cavalcade together to Saddle Peak. Do come topless if you can as that encourages the weather to be good.   And above all, please call me at 626-799-9087, or email creigt @ aol.com, telling me you are coming so I can alert the cowards at the restaurant. Also, feel free to bring a friend if you wish; maybe we can con him/her into joining.

JOC Annual Picnic

Gravens Home, 07/09/2016, 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm

JOC Annual Picnic

SATURDAY, JULY 9TH

JOC ANNUAL PICNIC

LOCATION: Judy Gravens’ home – Montrose

               This year we’re doing something different for our ever popular Club Picnic. Rather than meeting at a park, we’ll be hosted by Judy Gravens in her park-like yard in Montrose. With beautiful canyon views, it’s sure to be the best setting ever. Also, no more burgers or sausages from the Mayuga kitchen, this year we’re having the event catered by The Pit Stop BBQ team. Entrees will include Tri-tip and pulled pork, cooked curbside right at Judy’s home. There will be plenty of sides, soft drinks and water. Bring your own libations if you care for something stronger. Seating, utensils, etc. provided.

We’re going to start a little later this year as well, to allow things to cool off a bit. Social hours 3-5pm, dinner served at 5pm. There is no cost for this event, but we do need you to sign up so we have an accurate head count for the caterers. Sign up on the website, by clicking on the event, or by phone or email to Shirley Nyquist (johnhnyquist@sol.com or 562-597-1263)

Judy’s address is 5009 N. Alta Vista Ave, Monrovia, CA 91016.

AND DON’T FORGET TO BRING A DESSERT TO ENTER IN THE ANNUAL CONTEST.
