I'm in the area tomorrow, I'll keep and eye out for anything interesting.

:thumbsup: The movie reviews are great!! We're in!!

I'm on reconnaissance ~ the gnome-torious Liam will be joining our MINI's at some point (Chicago?Montrose?Woodfield?) and we're game for some cruisin.. (Sheridan? burbs?) Anyone else interested? Routes you'd like to suggest before dinner & we find out how James became "Bond"... :cool: James Bond?!!

Hmm, this looks doable for me. For now, I'll post yes.

Perhaps dinner in downtown Naperville, there are several good resturants within walking distance of the parking garage, where you could line up the MINIs for a photo op and since it is a public parking lot no security guards to try and crsh into you! (but it is under video survalence so no horse play) Crowds aren't that bad after Labor Day.

Liam could be a spy for HRM... Double-o-gnome :)

MiniMac2005 11-06-2006 05:10 PM

Not sure if I can make this one.. especially if we're meeting the next day... I'll pencil it on the calendar for now.

Put me down as a "maybe". James Bond and a bunch of MINIs :grin:

:) If time is an issue... how about skip the predrive (which may or maynot be long) and join us for dinner & movie... or just movie?!! Def more the merrier! This group is flexible!!

I just bought my MCS a few months ago and I still have not been to any of the meet ups. I'm looking forward to Saturday.

MiniMac2005 11-16-2006 07:20 PM

I actually drove by the theater this week on a client visit... It's a bit far for me... plus I want to watch the Pacquiao fight later that night...

Enjoy the movie guys... maybe next time :)

Dancing on the fence, really want to but with a second meet the next day I'm not yet 100% sure. I think it's going to be a day of decision for this one, but I'm a definate for Sunday's meet.

Puddle Jumper 11-17-2006 06:14 AM

See Pauls updated meeting times!
 
:thumbsup: Looks like a good plan, Paul!
I hope those "on the fence" will hop in with us.. we always have fun!
By the way... this Bond is suppose to tell us how Bond became James Bond 007... the reviews are suppose to be AWESOME... and I just saw an underground clip of the outrageous action we are in for!!! Put on those seat belts!! >>> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjehF...=james+bond+jr

MiniShagz 11-17-2006 11:53 AM

I'm planning on seeing the Bond flick with my Dad and two brothers (sort of a tradition) up here on Saturday as well. Hope you enjoy the movie and whatever MINI stuff you do besides! :D

Puddle Jumper 11-17-2006 07:38 PM

:) If anyone is interested in a bit of predinner/Bond fun, our two MINIs will be heading south from the NW burbs (around 11:45) down 53 to tollway> Cicero shortcut>>57 and stop at the Bakers Square* in Matteson (30/57 intersect) for a 12:45-1:00 convergence with ucanhavmycake & Liam!:thumbsup:
We are going to head west on 30 to Joliet, N on 53, past the prison, W on Royce Rd and then, depending on time, some other fun roads before meeting Paul at the theater lot by 3:30.
If we are early, we will attempt some funkhana fun.
You are welcome to join in!!
Dinner at Red Robin. Yum! (redrobin.com for menu)
:cool: BOND.... JAMES Bond after!! OO7, here we come!

*Bakers Square: 4721 Lincoln Mall Dr., Matteson (W side of the mall off of 30 and Cicero Ave)

The weather looks to be fairly nice, count me in! I may have to cut some graphics so my boring car is less boring!

Paul 11-17-2006 09:35 PM

We'll be there at 3pm in case you arrive earlier :)

Ords 11-18-2006 05:37 AM

Ok, I might not stay for the movie as Austin has a Skate Party for school between 5-7p but 3pm for premovie cocktails, that I can do!. :lol:

Puddle Jumper 11-19-2006 08:16 PM

Great seeing you all!
 
:lol: Bond... driving a ----?!!!
Great food, and friends! Welcome newbie Maat! We need a round table next time... missed Blake's explanation for his creative graphics!
Thanks for getting it organizing, Paul!

Paul 11-19-2006 09:02 PM

Barbara and I had a great time!! Good food, friends!

Motor On 11-19-2006 11:08 PM

I enjoyed it, even saw a MINI leaving the theater after our little coffee run!!!

Motor On 11-24-2006 08:55 PM

I told you!
 
There were some comments about exotics after the movie, this was one of my recent spotting this week.
