Downtown Drive October 24th

Wrap-up:10 MINI's met up for the drive Downtown. The weather was perfect, and the bunch of cars caused quite a bit of attention from the downtown crowd. It was incredible to hear the whine of MCS superchargers and the growl of aftermarket exhausts while blasting around Lower Wacker Drive!! Hanging around MINI-lennium Park was fun and a nice dinner followed.

Huge thanks to Maxwell for planning the downtown drive and sculpture tour, and arranging for prime lakefront parking!!!

You can check out Pete Krehbiel & Gabe's pics of the event here.

Update 10/22/2004: A slight change in Eats to Park Grill located off of MINI-lennium Park since it is looking to be a nice day!!

Come on out and join us on a very casual drive down Lakeshore Drive and around downtown on Sunday October 24th.

We will meet at the parking area at east of the Bryn Mawr exit of Lake Shore Drive at 4:00 p.m.

From there, we will head to Downtown and take a short spin around the Loop (hopefully including Lower Wacker Drive). MINI parking will be provided at 400 E. Monroe Street (east of Lake Shore Drive) thanks to club member Maxwell.

After that, a group hangout at Bennigan's
