We will meet at 9 a.m. at Eden’s Plaza in Wilmette departing at 9:30 a.m. for a tour in a large circle route east to through the Sheridan Road Ravines, down twisty Forest Way Drive and along tree lined back roads to Pinstripes (1150 Willow Road Northbrook, IL 60062). Major streets are all but avoided (not even a minute on Willow road) and of course, no expressways!

Written directions will be provided at the start.

Spring Chicken Rally/Tour
May 18, 2014

This year’s Spring Chicken Rally/Tour is scheduled for Sunday, May 18. We will gather at the Deer Park shopping mall, located on the northwest corner of Route 12, Rand Road and Deer Park Blvd, by the Starbucks parking area, same place as last year.
The drivers meeting will begin at 10:15am in the parking lot. Directions for the driving route will be given out at the meeting. We will end the drive at our house and everyone should be finished by 11:30, where for $7.00 you will get a chicken lunch and drinks. To make sure we have enough but not too much food, Jana and I would like to hear from you to know if you are attending. Call us at 847-566-5075 or e-mail us at

We hope you can make it. This year will feature an optional parking skill challenge at our house. It should not be too hard, but fun to try. George and Jana Phariss

The dates are different than in the past. We are returning to the South Beloit area now, after Memorial Day, so that we can visit and explore the Historic Auto Attractions Museum.

Plan to arrive sometime Friday afternoon. Dinner that night will be at the Butterfly Club, an authentic Wisconsin supper club. Enjoy the Friday night fish fry. Saturday morning we will visit the Museum. Saturday afternoon plans are in the works. It could be a visit to a local MG owner’s garage or watching go-kart racing at Blackhawk Farms Raceway. Saturday dinner will be at another supper club. If you are still hungry, on your way home, you could stop in Hebron and have brunch at Crandall’s. They have great broasted chicken and chicken livers.
