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"... James Bond?!!

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.

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

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!!

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.

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!
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)
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)

I told you!

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


In downtown Barrington a few nights ago! I was taking pictures of the MINI across the street when I spotted thins so naturally I had to go get a photo.
