Choosing a Finish Location

A good finish location will have many of the following characteristics:

  • Place orders at the counter – so each person or group of people can order and pay separately
  • Various types of food – because not everyone wants the same thing (not even pizza)
  • Open late – to allow at least an hour after the finish closes for protests, announcements, awards, and discussion
  • Good lighting – so people can read the critique
  • Plenty of room – so everyone gets a seat (including normal non-rallyist customers, if we don't have a room/area reserved)
  • Near the rallye's end – because no one likes long final traverses to the finish

Armadillo Willy's BBQ

Giovanni's New York Pizzaria

  • Address: 1127 N Lawrence Expressway at lakehaven

  • Phone: (408) 734-4221
  • Details:
    • There is a reserveable side room with long tables.
    • Tell them we expect 50 people, so they won't seat others in this side room.
    • Waiters take orders and deliver food, so a tip is expected.
    • Open Saturdays until 9:30 PM.

Pizza Depot

  • Address: 919 E Duane Ave, Sunnyvale, CA 94085
  • URL:
  • Phone: (408) 245-7760

This is not as nice as others, but is pretty empty on Saturday nights. Could be noisy nonetheless, since they have pinball and arcade games.
