    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    It's been replaced by the Tuesday night cruise at Culver's across the street..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!

    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
