CHICAGO: Cars and Coffee

If you're on Facebook join the event page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/459973760836290/

Also, join the Chicagoland Mercedes Enthusiast Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/mbclubchicago/

The first of many monthly Cars and Coffee events for 2015!

All MBCA members and non members are welcome to the event, bring anything and anyone you'd like. Cafe Di Maggio will be graciously opening early on our event days to make any coffee, pastry or gelato available for purchase for anyone attending the event. Parking will be available all around the DiMaggio Cafe Restaurant (Pizza). Once the main lot has been filled, there will be overflow parking available in the lot next to the strip mall (20 yards away).

The events will be held on the 3rd Sunday of every month beginning in May. There will be no rain days, if the weather is not cooperating, there will be no attempt in holding the event. Official "start" time for the event will be 9:30am and "end" time 12:00pm. If you stick around, DiMaggio's will be open for lunch at 12. Food is very reasonably priced and fantastic!

As of now, dates are set as:

May 17
June 21
July 19
August 23
September 20
October 18
November 15 (pending weather, if there's salt there's no event)

Please be mindful of the area and support local business!

DiMaggio Cafe
7326 W Lawrence Ave
Harwood Heights, IL 60706

If there are any questions, shoot me a PM here too!

Was drizzling and raining in some areas yesterday, but it cleared up nicely for the meet itself! Few more folks showed up later on and had a nice array of cars and people show up! I nearly forgot to take a few pictures, but managed to take a few snaps of the Mercs.

Next day is June 21! Same place, same times.

Chicago seems to be rather boring with Mercedes related things, so we're going to keep these going. Will probably do like a swap meet style thing down the road. Figure this is a great way to meet locals.

Next day is June 21!
