    After the July 20th show at Township Park in Edwardsville, IL, everyone is invited to cruise-in with the Lakers Car Club at Culver's ! Just 6 miles straight south down IL-157 from the hotel.

    Cruise runs from 5-8, but we're hoping to organize a group to head over after 4:00 and park together. The lot, street, and grass all fill up quick with a huge assortment of cars.

    Address: 100 United Dr, Collinsville, IL 62234

    Hey Bruce,

    I just tried to call and make a reservation and they told me all available MCG rooms are booked, but that the organizer could contact them and make more rooms available at the group rate. Would you possibly be able to do that?

    Thanks!

    Mark
