      I don't think we have a permanent location, we're getting feedback from everyone and playing it by ear

      Yeah, there is no love for Northern IL past Palatine Road, forget about north of Lake Cook Road.

      But I suppose it makes sense though. Seems like the Lake County scene is pretty dead and any type of meet up this way would probably bomb. Just take a look at the Lake/McHenry County ''Spotted'' Thread... it's basically a grave yard.

      Once a year CVO Suburban Tour Summer Cruise Nights comes out to Vernon Hills. I think that's just about it. Outside of that the only shows that happen in Lake County are for American muscle and vintage cars which are fun to check out from time to time.

      Buona Beef Restaurant was pretty nice for me because by taking the back roads (12, 59, Barrington Rd) it was only 30 minutes.

      No Big Deal though i am sure i will try and come out some in the future.

      That was me. It was a far drive but a great place to eat. I was surprised to see how many cars showed up.
