Default Chicagoland Cruise - December 23rd 2007

IllinoisEuro.com an Illinois based European car forum I'm on is having a Cruise on the 23rd, and anyone and everyone is invited to come out, they don't need to have a European car, and it looks to be a good one! Come join us for a good fun Cruise!

****NEW STARTING LOCATION****
NORTH AVE BEACH PARKING LOT
Just east of Lake Shore Drive and Lasalle Ave.

each car must pay a $6 entrance fee. Not only is it a big lot, this is now legal...

we have this lot from 9:20 to 10:20


This is still going to be a GREAT meet, just a new loaction and a small fee so that we can use a SWEET parking lot right on the lake!



From there we will make our way north. We wont be spending too much time in the city because of traffic. This cruise is a good one guys.

The meet will end up in the Glen in Glenview.

any questions just post em or pm me...

I pass. Don't want to go down there in my personal car if I don't have to... But I'd take a bus if I could.

Driving in downtown with a bus is way more tolerable than with a car. I make cabs move. And I can see over practically all the traffic.

Sure do. Name's Travis Hageman. I typically drive charters, so I dont do the line run much... but ive done it plenty. I'm the young bus driver. If you haven't had a young bus driver, then you haven't had me.

The majority of the downtown driving we'll be doing is just getting to the starting point. Once the cruise starts, we won't spend much time in the city. It basically goes north along the lake.

It ends at the top floor of a parking garage at the Glen in Glenview:

That's not an exact address, obviously, but it's off of there.
