The latest Mercedes technology - it could save your life!
One of the most effective ways to slow the spread of the coronavirus is to wash your hands regularly and thoroughly, either with an alcohol-based hand rub or using soap and water. Stay safe!
Due to the on-going COVID-19 health emergency, upcoming section activities have been postponed. We will reschedule as soon as possible and let you know via the newsletter and email of new dates. In the meantime, please comply with recommended health guidelines and stay healthy. Be well, everyone!
We've logged several new 5th@5 events now and the concept seems to be catching on with our members. In January, we went to Texas T-Bone for some great steaks and meeting new members. In February, we went to Paravincini's Italian Bistro and met even more new and prospective members while dining out on Italian specialties. Stay tuned as we update this page to see where we're headed next.
The Pikes Peak Section had a great time at Marigold’s Café & Bakery on Valentine’s Day last month. Eighteen members made reservations for a gustatory extravaganza. We toasted each other with wine selections and enjoyed the complimentary caprese appetizer – thanks, Gus!
Our menu selections included seafood pasta, trout, steak, and beef bourguignon – a Marigold’s specialty. We finished with treats from the bakery, again compliments of the house. We felt like we were among family – with our Mercedes-Benz friends and our professional servers and restaurant staff. It was a great way to spend a Friday night with loved ones and friends.
January 26th was the date, Mercedes-Benz of Colorado Springs was the place - for our annual gustatory extravaganza starring our own Section chefs. It was a fabulous start to the year. Over 50 Section members and friends brought their best efforts and enjoyed the camaraderie MBCA is famous for. We dined out on jaeger schnitzel and spaetzel, casseroles, salads, and desserts galore. It was all scrumptious. Once we were stuffed, it was time for the annual auction of M-B logo'd items, provided by MB-CS. The bidding was spirited and not quite combative. Glenn was a master at driving up the prices - a good thing since all of the proceeds went to upcoming Section activities. By the end of the evening, we raised almost $300 for our upcoming events. Thanks to Glenn and Mercedes-Benz of Colorado Springs for their support and being excellent hosts and thanks to all who participated; we'll see you again next year!
Jay Leno and the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center take the 55SSKL for a spin. Wish we could go with them!
Twenty Pikes Peak Section members braved frigid temperatures to view Christmas lights with their tops down and windows open. Masochists, right? Not really, we were toasty warm with gloves, mufflers, and heaters blazing. Tops down made it easier to see the beautiful sights and we found some really awesome displays.
Steve & Barb Dierks hosted our group and mapped out the route to see the best displays. We gathered at their house to show off our ugly Christmas sweaters, get our maps, and partake of some fortified hot chocolate before the drive. Then it was everyone for themselves. The good news is that everyone made it back to the Dierks' home at the end of the drive.
We settled in to enjoy more hot chocolate, wine, and sangria as well as the dishes everyone brought. It was a great opportunity to connect with friends and renew acquaintances and completely in keeping with the holiday spirit. Our thanks to Steve & Barb for putting this event together.
