Mystery Lunch Bunch

Grab a couple of your friends and your spirit of adventure, and we will provide the ride to lunch! The location is a mystery and will keep you guessing until we arrive. Our adventures take us far and wide but we are usually back in Emporia by 1:00-1:30pm. We will do the driving to get you there and back safely so you can relax and enjoy the company. Please let us know if you are unable to get to ERC, and we will be glad to pick you up. This is a great way to meet new friends, try new restaurants and get out of town!
