Are you a busy car nut, and have kids to entertain on Saturday morning?
Is your spouse dying for a morning where they can sleep in, or get some “me time”?
Are you a grandparent (or really cool uncle/aunt) that wants to give the children in your family some exposure to car culture?
Do yourself and your prodigy a favor and bring them out to Columbus Cars and Coffee! Not only will they experience some beautiful summer mornings, but they will get to meet some other great kids…OH YEAH, did we mention there were CARS INVOLVED?!?
So…if you’re a gearhead parent or grandparent that wants to expose the young’uns to some great cars (but don’t want to commit 8 hours on the weekend to a car show), or you want to meet other gearhead parents, feel free to come down any Saturday!
Points awarded every weekend to the coolest bikes, wagons, or PowerWheels!
Coming up on the first of June, I’ve been talking with a few friends about how great this group has become in such a short time.
Initially, this group started from a few friends who spread the news via word-of-mouth and a few free VistaPrint cards that had the Gmail account address. Then, we graduated to having a website, with technical and design expertise supplied by those who enjoy our gatherings. Over this past winter, we set up our own Facebook page, and visibility went through the roof. Those of us that have put in work to get to this point are humbled by the progress that a truly grassroots, non-commercial group event such as this has gone through.
In reality, Cars and Coffee is simply a shared concept; an idea that is held and made valuable by the people who support it and derive personal enjoyment from sharing their passion with others. There isn’t one person, one website, or one car manufacturer that defines it; and without the friendship, respect and comraderie we give to each other every Saturday, the group would dissolve.
Thank you to everyone who has attended at least one Columbus Cars and Coffee gathering this season! As always, be sure to spread the news about this group to your friends, family, and car buddies. If you haven’t made it out yet, we look forward to seeing you soon!
Stay after the C&C event on the 25th and see Fast and the Furious 6 with a theater full of fellow gearheads. While this may not be American Graffiti or Bullet who doesn’t love a car movie of any sort. Time and ticket prices are tentative to changes depending on amount of interest. Discounted rate and private showing is in the works! RSVP on Facebook!
You guys ROCK!!! What a passionate group! With the weather hit-or-miss for March, we’re NOT meeting tomorrow (March 16th) given the forecast of a cold rain and no sun. However, next week looks to be SUNNIER and UPPER 50s!!!
When April rolls around, WE WILL GO FULL BORE and officially start the 2013 Cars and Coffee season!
Your patience has almost paid off…we will see you very soon!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Here’s to making 2013 better than the years before it…
It’s January in Columbus…there’s a week-old layer of snow on everything, the temperatures struggle to hit the high 20s, it’s 60 degrees and partly cloudy (go figure!) and “cabin fever” is quickly setting in. PERFECT TIME TO REFRESH CONVERSATIONS WITH GOOD CAR BUDDIES!!!
December got away from most of us, but with the doldrums of Winter now firmly in place, let’s get together on Saturday, 1/12/13 for a “Winter Edition” of Columbus Cars and Coffee!
Come on over to Cup O’ Joe, and meet others for a couple hours of car talk. If you bring your prized ride out…more power to ya! However, plan on your winter beater or daily driver being perfectly acceptible for these meetings. You will have plenty of time to discuss winter projects, or compare how much you’re looking forward to the spring over other car nuts!
Even with some great November Saturdays, the temps are getting too cool, and the holiday season is just upon us. Please join us this Saturday, 11/17/12, for one last Columbus Cars and Coffee meet.
After November, we will still meet once a month…just to keep the group together, and conversations going throughout the cold season! Stay tuned to this site for updates. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
