Amenities include:

Brunswick Pool Tables
Video games (in the bowling alley)
Outdoor patio with bean bag games


The Alley Grill & Tap House is located just to the west of last year's meet location. Located on Old Lagrange Rd, you can get there by turning on the street where White Castles and Denny's are located.

The meet will start promptly at 12:00pm and we'll go until roughly 2:00 or 3:00pm to give us ample time to cruise to our photo shoot destinations. There's plenty of parking spots for our cars and we'll have all of the parking spots . There's a gate from the outdoor patio area that will be open for easy access to our cars. We have multiple locations planned for photo shoots. For those with DSLR and GoPro cameras, along with 2-way radios/walkie talkies, please bring them!

Meet Rules:

Signage Sign Font Rectangle

For the Chicagoland Ford Fusion Meet, there will be rules to follow. First and foremost is RESPECT:
1. Respect for the location - other local car shows and meets use this location. Let's not ruin it so that we can keep coming back for future
2. Respect for Rules of the Road - we don't need local law enforcement arresting anyone.
3. Respect for the community. No personal insults, no bullying, no douchbaggery! Everyone has different tastes (and opinions) but please keep your opinions to yourselves. Let's enjoy the meet and have fun!

Everyone please watch this video as it applies to all car shows/meets:

Thanks everyone! Hope to see you there!
