For years BCI members have gathered for dinner & socializing on the 2nd Friday of the month at a food court with several options and a common dining area where we can gather.
The Crossroads Shopping Center ( SW corner Barranca Pkwy & Culver, Irvine) has an outside patio with heaters by the fountain between Sagami and the The Flame Broiler; several places have discount offers and range from Turkish (DonerG) to Pizza Hut to Ha Long Vietnamese and Capital Noodle Bar (bring your own bowl for take out!) - and Chipotle, Stone Fire, Urban Plates & Veggie Grill are just across the parking lot. See the center's web page for links to discount offers & complete listing of choices.
Meet at 6:30 under the heater umbrellas in front of The Flame Broiler or Sagami.
