2009 Holiday Party December 13th

WRAPUP: Great friends, great food, presents and a great way to wrap up the year.  We had a big crowd of old and new MINI friends, and lined up the block with MINIs.  Huge thanks to Taylor for again hosting such a fantastic party, and thanks to everyone in the Chicago MINI Motoring Club for making our club such a nice and fun place to be!!
