Default Wisconsin Cars and Coffee

This is a long shot, I know most of you are based in warmer climates, but we have a monthly "Cars and Coffee" get together here in Eau Claire, WI.

The meet is right off the intersection of I-94 and 53/93, so if you're coming from Minneapolis/Madison/etc. It's going to be RIGHT off the freeway.

It's usually fairly small, 50 or so cars, but we will have free coffee, free donuts, some really cool people, and we meet at Action City which is basically a huge arcade.

They have an indoor and an outdoor Go Kart track, and it's $12 for 2 hours "all you can play" games, karting, laser tag, etc. All you can eat pizza and soda is an additional $5 if you want. Or just come to look at the cars and hang out!

Like I said, long shot.. but if anyone's interested, it's a good time. And I'm 95% sure my car will be back up and running for it... MS got here yesterday, and turbo should be here tomorrow!!



Also, if you're going to make a trip out of it, there's a Modifieds car show at a grocery store down the road, starts a 3pm.

Herp derp. Meeting is the third saturday of every month. So this upcoming Saturday, June 21, will be the June meet.

I'll post up some pics and such when I get home from work.

Maybe the starting and ending times? There's a lot of daylight to choose from on Saturday; longest day of the year.

Goodness you're needy! (basically I'm a failure)

Event is from 8a to 11a. There is also another local car show that begins afterwards if you want to make a day out of it. I ddon't have any info on that one right now, but I'll get some and post it along with the photos this afternoon.

4 hour drive and 274 miles each way for me. I still will consider it, especially if we get a decent number of people.

Updated OP with pics!

Note that this isn't exactly a large town, and we don't typically draw a huge crowd... 40 or so is a "pretty good turnout" for us (we had about 80 our first one, but lots of rif-raff).

Any MT.N members that show, I'll pay for your "all play" pass, so you can kart/laser tag/bumper cars/etc. for free.
