Blues drive 06/17

Who likes driving MINIs and listening to the Blues?

We will be taking a neighborhood drive to listen to CMMC member Dave Hoffheimer Band performing live at Ten Ninety Brewing Company in Glenview.

WRAPUP: A smaller crowd of 5 cars (3 MINIs a classic Mustang and a classic Eagle Talon) took off from MINI of Glencoe for a short cruise on some fun area roads. We were joined by a couple other club members at the Ten Ninety brewing company where we enjoyed some good eats and a performance by the Dave Hoffheimer Band. Big thanks to Dave and to MINI of Glencoe!!
