MSTA Daytona Bike Week Lunch
« on: November 14, 2017, 09:25:29 AM »

MSTA Daytona Bike Week Just-For-Fun Lunch

When: 11:30, Thursday, March 15, 2018

Where: 1884 Restaurant and Bar, 12 East Magnolia Avenue, Eustis, FL 32726
Restaurant Phone 800 856-1884

Description: We have a new destination for this year’s luncheon and you are really going to like it. It’s the perfect spot not too far away from Daytona’s crowds in the small town of Eustis.  The reservation has been made.
The 1884 Restaurant and Bar is in a large, old 2-story brick building in easily accessible downtown. The outside is not remarkable, but the inside is.  It has wide-open spaces, tall ceiling, hardwood floors, dark wood bar and furniture and sections of marble wall.  It is quite impressive in a manly sort of way.  They will be able to easily accommodate all of us on the upstairs mezzanine level.  Mention MSTA when you get there.
Lunches are made from locally grown, fresh produce and meats, along with homemade desserts from the in-house baker. Prices are moderate, in the $9 to $14 range, but you get your money’s worth.  Be sure to check their website for pictures, menus and more at

Directions: If you’re coming from out of town, you cannot get there without traveling some of Florida’s better motorcycling roads. 

From the Daytona speedway, it is just over an hour’s ride. Follow US 92 west into Deland.   Turn left on FL15A (Spring Garden Ave) for just under 2 miles then right on FL 44.  Once over the river, bare right again on FL 42 for an enjoyable 19-mile jaunt.  Then go left on US 19 into Eustis.  FL 42 is a particularly good ride.  Staying on FL 44 can save you 4 minutes but is not nearly as much fun.

From Ocala, take US 441/27 south to Cr 464 and follow it southeast about 16 miles to Cr 25.  Turn left on 25 through the small town of Ocklawaha.  Cr 25 continues around the east side of Lake Weir and drops down to FL 42 at Weirsdale.  Go left on 42 about 9 miles, then right on Cr 452.  452 is a very pleasant 12-mile run to US 19 where you turn right into downtown Eustis. Ride time should be just over an hour.

You can park on the Magnolia Ave in front of the restaurant.  But a better alternative is the parking lot behind the restaurant on its south side.  There is a back entrance.  As you get to Eustis, keep on 19 (Bay St) to Magnolia Ave.  Turn left on Magnolia, then right on the first street (Eustis St).  Then take the first right again onto E. Orange (SR 44), then right again into the lot before crossing Bay St (19).
