    Chicagoland Cruise Spots

    Well, since the weather looks like it's on the way up soon, I thought I'd get the early jump on where the local cruise spots are in our area. If there is a place that is wrong or left out, feel free to post it. I happened to copy this list from another website so I can't quite guarantee its accuracy. Our group is steadily increasing, so this list has enough spots on it for us to start hanging out on a regular basis. Recently added or amended info.

    The whole Streets of Woodfield thing isnt really an organized cruise night.. Too many V-Techs for my taste..

    This one doesn't exsist anymore: Carol Stream, ILScooby Red Hots - 185 S. Schmale in Carol Plaza, (southeast corner of North Ave. & Schmale) 630-752-0288. Starts at 6:30.

    It's been replaced by the Tuesday night cruise at Culver's across the street.. Always a good turn out here.

    Starts about the same time? If there are Vtechs around, then we have to show up to show them what real cars sound like!

    Here's the two I don't see on the list..

    Tuesday : Carol Stream, IL; Culver's, 290 S Schmale Rd., 630-933-9747, 6:00 PM - 9 PM, sponsored by Culvers with FREE raffle

    and

    Thursday : Addison, IL; Culver's,1347 W Lake St, (630) 628-6020; 6:00 - 9PM, Sponsored by Culver's and the Rod Fathers

    I also see the Frankly Yours one on Friday.. I believe that was moved to Saturday nights and is the new Voo Doo Kings hang out. That one is always a blast.. Flamethrower shows, music.. good times..
