I live in the northern suburbs, work downtown, and travel all over the Chicagoland area weekly...your guess is as good as mine
WHAT types of events would you likely be involved in? (choices are things like weeknight events, food rides, autocross, weekend and overnight events, track days, food only, tech talks, etc. Feel free to make up your own.)
I'd like to be involved in all types of events from GTGs/meets to track days and everything in between.

In addition to my 9-5 job, I also run Supercar Saturdays, a monthly "Cars and Coffee" type informal meet that takes place at The Glen in Glenview, IL on the first Saturday of every month.
We had 180 cars ranging from Lamborghinis to 70's muscle cars at our September event and I'd love to see more Minis out at the last event of the season on October 2nd. To RSVP for preferred parking or see pictures of previous events, check out http://www.supercarsaturdays.com

I'll also be doing a track day at Autobahn on October 24th through Hooked on Driving. It's my first track day so I am super excited. If anyone is interested in joining us shoot me a PM as I still have some coupon codes!
