WRAPUP: Depsite the chilly weather and a dusting of snow, about 16 MINIs participated in an early morning cruise down pothole covered Sheridan Road and Lake Shore Drive. The Auto Show was nice, and it was a bit less crowded than usual. Huge thanks to Knauz MINI for helping us out with tickets!!

The Chicago MINI Motoring Club (CMMC) will be attending the Chicago Auto Show on Saturday February 14th. This is a perfect way to celebrate a Valentines Day morning.
The plan is to take a scenic drive down parts of Sheridan Road and Lake Shore Drive to the show. Once we are at the show, everyone is on their own for hanging out and checking out acres of cool cars.
WHO: The drive is open to all friends of CMMC
WHEN: Saturday February 14th.
WHERE: The Evanston Northwestern parking garage at the far south end of the campus.
The address is 1800 S. Campus Drive (click the address for a map)
There is a small road that leads into Northwestern at the south end of the campus, and the parking garage is less than 1/4 mile in. We will be huddled in our cars shivering on the top level (slightly above ground level).
We will meet up and plan to leave at about 8:30 am to hopefully avoid some of the crowds heading to the show.
Come on out for a nice early morning drive, even if you don’t want to attend the Auto Show..
UPDATE 01/31/2009: We have secured a number of free admission passes to the Auto Show. HUGE thanks to Knauz MINI for helping us out!! You will still need to pay for the normal parking garage fees.
SPECIAL CMMC Ticket deal: We have a number of free admission passes to the Auto Show. To get them you will need to hook up with us on the beginning of the group drive so we can give them to you.
IMPORTANT: Post a comment here if you are interested in joining us for the drive and/or the tickets. For tickets will be available for Club member +1 guest. If we have extra tickets towards the end we may be able to relax that restriction.
We will e-mail you a confirmation closer to the event date and after we get the tickets in hand so we know how many spots we have.
