Superdawg 5/21

MINI Cooper Superdawg

WRAPUP: A bit of early evening drizzle did not dampen the enthusiasm for hanging out at the worlds coolest Hot Dog place.  40 MINIs, Mini, Lotus, and a few other cars showed up over the evening from such faraway places as Madison, Milwaukee, and even New Jersey (plus a bunch of people from much closer).  A really great evening to hang out and visit, look at cool cars, have some great food, and enjoy each others company.

Huge thanks to Arnie for making all the arrangements to provide for such a fun evening, even though he was unable to attend..

Please send links to photos to , and I’ll add them here.

  • Geoff

    I will be there

  • Francis

    hey ya’ll!! got back from the Ozarks (soaked) after a great MINI trip! Can’t wait to have some local flavor.

  • Anybody want to meet at the Bunker Hill parking lot off of Caldwell at 6:00 pm then drive to the Wheeling Superdawg location around 6:30? This would be informal of course and most convenient for Northsiders planning on going to Superdawg.

  • I’m hoping to make it.

  • Tom G

    Paula and I are planning on being there, as long as I can get out of work early!

  • Jerry Fikar

    I’ll be there weather permitting.

  • Peter

    Rain, rain, go away. Happy Friday everybody.

  • John & Tommy

    may come with one, two or three cars …

  • Alright then. I will be in the Bunker Hill parking lot at 6:00 pm Friday evening unless it is pouring cats and dogs, but I think we will be okay with the weather. Will leave by 6:30 for SuperDawg. I will be in a silver cooper for those who don’t know my car. See you then…

  • Francis

    for those heading north… there’s road construction on Milwaukee Ave at 294 and starting just north of Lake Ave up to Palatine Rd. It might not be too bad after rush hour, but just in case you notice a backup when approaching… and there’s no good way around that area once in it. Plan accordingly.

  • Sue

    I totally had forgotten about this, but just got an email from the Wisconsin group saying they are coming down tonight. We’re in Palatine, is there anyone coming from that direction that wants to join our ride?

  • Francis,
    Thanks for the heads-up. Maybe we will just go back to the Edens and take that up to Palatine Road or Lake Cook.

  • Francis

    hey Sue! I work off of Wilke and Dundee… post up where and when and I can be there.

  • Maybe it’s just me, but IDOT seems worthless for planning a route. Anyone have a better suggestion?

  • Francis

    From Bunker Hill?? Milwaukee to Central Rd (turn left-west), to Wolf Rd (turn right-north), to Hintz (turn right-east), to Milwaukee (turn left-north) to SD.

    Wolf might be bumpy behind the airport…

    or Milwaukee to Sanders (stay right-north), to Willow (turn left-west), to Milwaukee (turn right-north) to SD.

  • Bill Murphy

    If there is room for the Outlander, I’ll be there.

  • Thanks. See you tonight…

  • Thanks everyone!!

    It was a fantastic night. The family and I had a great time hanging out with everybody

  • Hi guys and gals my name is Cesar, I met a few of you last night at the Superdawg meet. I was in the blue r53 with the lights on that showed up late, this was my 1st mini event. I look forward talking to you guys and getting to know you, thanks for the guys that shared your experiences on modding with me. See you at the next meet.

  • Had a great time, as always! Thanks to Wade for the milkshake recommendation 😀 Good to see everyone again and we’ll see you all at the next one!

  • John & Caitlin

    A fun time. Caitlin enjoyed meeting some of her Dad’s “MINI-friends.”
