Culvers – August 8th


A hot and muggy Saturday afternoon brought out about 25 MINIs (and Minis) for some socializing and good food.   Lots of newer and potential members were there, and we got to see a few people who haven’t been to an event in quite some time.  We had club members arrive from as far north as Milwaukee area, East from Indiana, and Northwest from Huntley.   Rob from the Culvers in Downers Grove rolled out the red carpet for us by providing free custard treats, toys for the kids, and a big Welcome sign out front.

Big thanks to newer member Kate for getting things rolling, and to Culvers of Downers Grove for all the hospitality!!

  1. I’m going also, probably with the family.

    If enough people are interested maybe I could plan a northsiders drive down there somehow (or maybe just a caravan down the expressway)

  2. I’m a Northsider and proud of it. I’ll join a ride downer to DG.

    I think of anything south of Devon as downtown.. 😉

    Guess I better start figuring a fun way to get there.

  3. How about starting at the metered parking lot in Lincoln Square? It’s right at Leland and Lincoln Avenue, should have plenty of spaces for what I expect will only be 6 to 12 cars, and as long as we are there we won’t need to feed the meters. It’s a heavy foot traffic location, so would be lots of Mini Oglers.

  4. Well the car is back and like new again.
    I will try to make this one hope to see you there!!!

  5. I will e-mail and let the NWI MINIacs club members know about this event. So far Cliffy and I will be coming for sure. I’ll let you know if any others will be joining us.

  6. Hi All,

    I was thinking of doing This Route to head down to Culvers and avoid expressways. I have not pre-drivin this so I am not sure if it is good, but I am up for an adventure!!

    I am planning on leaving Skokie area at about 3:30. If anyone is interested in joining in, let me know and we can plan where to meet along the route (or I’ll get you directions to my place if you’d like to start there)

  7. I would love to attend my first get together since joining the club. What time?

    Glad you will be able to make it, starts at about 5pm, but feel free to drop by anytime!!

  8. Probably late but probably attending: I’m planning to do the BMW “car clinic” in Maywood earlier that day —

  9. Too bad I could not make it as I was at MITM. It would be great to have those types of gatherings more often… how about finding some curvy roads… I just can’t get out of my head driving up and down the mountains in Colorado… I did not even know my MINI can drive like that!
