What a great drive!! We had a little bit of a late start after a few of us Northsiders showed up at the wrong Menards, but we wound up with 17 MINI's, and a really cool Classic Mini taking a tour of some scenic back roads. A couple of nice twisties were thrown in as well.
After a couple of rest stops and photo-ops we headed back to Augustino's Diner for a quick bite to eat and off to the Drive-in movie.
The weather was incredible for the beginning of October and it made for a fantastic day to hang out with MINI friends. A fun time was had by all!
Huge thanks to Club member Jeff for offering to put this drive together, and running lead on the drive!!!!
Here is a link to some photo's from the event (thanks Dennis)
If you can't make the cruise, but would still like to do the movie, we will be eating dinner at Augustino's (awesome, family-owned deli right by where we are meeting on 64, just west of 59) at around 5:30 to 6:30 or so. Then we'll head over to the theater.
Feel free to bring camping chairs etc to the theater, as many people like to actually sit outside their cars while they watch the movie. You are also allowed to bring in water/soda/snacks (no alcohol).
The group might be interested in stopping at a pumpkin patch along the cruise (it is a FALL Cruise after all).
The movies for this weekend are: “Into the Blue” and “The Exorcism of Emily Rose.”
What could be more fun than taking your MINI to a Drive-in Movie? How about a Drive-in Movie, a dinner, and a group drive in the Kane county area!!
Details are still in the works, but here is the plan so far..
When:Saturday October 1st. Meetup for the drive at 2:00.
Where:We will meet for a drive starting in the Menards parking lot near Route 59 and Route 64 in West Chicago. From there we will head out west for a nice drive. Dinner plans have not been set yet. The Cascade Drive-in is also located near Rt. 59 and Rt. 64.
Come on out for the whole event, or just part!!
Post below if you are interested in attending so we can get an approximate count.
Here is the post that started things out on our Club Forum.
