Event Description

First Chicago Area Smart Car Enthusiasts winter get together dinner. At the "The Great Escape" in Schiller Park. It has great food and reasonable prices, around $10-$12 per entree. It's fairly easy to get to being just off 294 on Ivring Park.

Oh bye the way did I mention it's the only restaurant in Chicago that has its own wind turbine.  The turbine generates all of the restaurants electricity and then some. They also heat their water with waste heat from the kitchen another first for the area.

Seems to me that it is just the type of place a bunch of smart owners should support. Check out the Great Escape's web page for more info.

Though the meet officially begins at 7:30 I'll be tippling at the bar between 6 and 6:30 if anyone wants to hoist one earlier.

Frank, sorry about the last minute planning, or lack thereof. I didn't realize we had no meets in jan until last week so just tossed this one together. I figured we would try an evening just to be different. If we have another evening meet we'll try to plan ahead.
