      I talked to the manager and they said they're open till 10pm, but we can hang out as long as we want. The adjacent lot will offer us the most parking.

      This location is closer to the highway and much better parking than Meadows. Also better streets for lowered cars. Meadows has HORRIBLE streets.

      Very cool of you to offer up some help like that. People are going to start arriving at 7:30 or so, I'm guessing head in to eat by 8:15. Should we speak with you or the manager?

      Edit: you work at the one in Rolling Meadows? We will be going to the Hoffman Estates location.

      We can only do the 10 percent discount at the rolling meadows location
      You can talk to either me or the manager when you get there
      Everything is cool he actually wants you guys to come because we are just now trying to get into the VW scene but we work every Tuesday night so we can't come to the meets but you guys can come to us

      You sure? We've been pushing 40 cars for the last couple weeks, and of course we all park in a group

      We'll still be there.

      And the meadows location would not be good at all for anyone really lowered. The streets are really bad and the entrance is asking to rip a bumper or exhaust off.

      Checked out Hoffman last night. Perfectly smooth entrances and lot. Accommodations for 100+ cars. This is the spot.

      Chris you said you talked to the mgr of the Hoffman Estates location and that he's cool with us being there, or am I confused?

      I talked to them last week. I'll call on my lunch break to reconfirm. Car clubs meet in those lots all the time. I'm gonna try to get a group discount too.

      Just spoke to the Buona Beef manager Jimmy. He is looking forward to us coming. Starting at 8pm we will have a private area for seating up to 35 with extra seating close by for overflow.

      Look forward to seeing you guys and meeting new faces too! Boost 'n Beef!

      i stopped by at the last minute with my buddy and his bike, it was a nice night and he wanted to go for a ride. It was a lil awkward since everyone seemed to already know each other, but many people did say hi, and do the whole head nod thing

      i prob goin to go again next week and may bring along my lil sis. since there was a beetle there last night maybe it'll be there again so she can be inspired to actually take care of hers

      Were you driving a black car and parked far away from everyone, and talked to the guy on the bike the whole time next to your car?

      Haha yeah.

      We just came for a quick look. The plan was only to stay for about 10 minutes or so while we waited for another one of our buddies who got "confused" by his gps and we ended up waiting a lot longer than expected.


      but like i said while we walked around checking out the cars people did say hi and stuff so there wasn't any feelings of not being welcomed or anything.

      definitely if my schedule permits i will be goin' again.
