Last night I spent the evening with a fantastic group of people that are connected by a single common thing... Their Hot Rods! This was mostly an older crowd of people that started meeting last year to reconnect with their summer group of friends which mainly meet up during the summer at the many Big Bopper DJ cruise nights at the Cozzi Corner in Downers Grove..
Last year, we all met at the Buona Beef Restaurant in Darien at 75th and Cass ave. It was a PACKED FULL HOUSE last year and we even had to turn away over 100 people which expected to be able to simply show up and attend the event. We ran a slideshow of pictures from the previous summer. An open buffet, soft drinks, and cash bar brought a night of fond memories which proved this was a concept that should be continued.
This years event was held at the Lithuanian Center in Lemont Il as we were unable to find a suitable place to hold the event closer to home. It seemed kind of strange to find a place that was for lack of a better term a Church, but once you got into the hall it seemed more like a school. Once you got into the hall, it was exactly like a wedding hall.
The people caught up on old times, discussed changes, updates and new ideas they have about their Hot Rod, but also talked about their hot rods for sale. It was a fantastic time. I ran slideshows from the cruise nights around the area and really enjoyed myself. I even brought my big screen which I made for the bow of my boat to show the slideshow from behind.
