Id like to take the opportunity to start a thread were people can post up suggestions for meet locations.

I feel the majority of TCG members that regularly come out to meets live in the northwest burbs and west burbs. Id like to see meets in these locations as well as others to get more/different people to come out. Basically meets between. Crystal Lake in the north, Chicago in the east, Bollingbrook south, and Aurora in the west. Any other location I feel would be "far" for the majority of members.

The winter meets could be held at TK, hOOters, Tavern, or F&H. Maybe try something like the Brickhouse. A few locations for these around the Chicago area.

When it gets warmer out, I liked the cars and coffee meet. That would be good todo again on a cool spring morning. It was nice driving in the city with no traffic. Also maybe meets at drive in type establishments, Sonic, SuperDawg, Gene N Judes, etc.

I think bringing back Cars & Coffee is a must. I wanted to this year but just never did (much like many things I promise...Hope & Change).

But Id like it to evolve into perhaps a bigger morning meets sometimes too. Cruise downtown one month, big meet infront of Starbucks or Dennys another.

What about something near Oak Brook? Nice central location and far enough south, and not too far west...

En t I c Ed, I'm in the middle of everything so it really doesn't matter if it takes 30-45 minutes to get some where.

I feel like Tilted Kilt (Elgin) is a decent spot geographically, at least.

Things in the Naperville/Woodridge/Downers Grove/Aurora area work greeeeeat for me. Plainfield is such a shitty location to get to other places from lol

I think posting actual locations (establishments) is more important than the area.

I always thought a meet at the Cascade Drive in (it's a drive in movie theater) in West Chicago (north ave and 59) would be a good time.

Last time I went it was like 8 bucks for 2 movies. You have to be careful when you leave there are a ton of cops on North ave picking up speeders and drunks.

This would be a great place. And still centralized for most people.

Some other options are:

Chicago Indoor Racing in Addison (several eateries both fast and sit down within a 2 mile drive) even if all we did was use their parking lot.
