North and South Hot Dog Rides for Labor Day
Labor Day, the symbolic end-of-summer holiday, falls on the 7th of September this year. And to celebrate, we have two hot dog ride destinations selected.
Our northern location is Bulldog's Grill, at 122 S. Main Street in beautiful downtown Wauconda. This is just east of US 12, and just north of Ill. Route 176. (We hope it won't be as crowded as shown in the photo at left!)
Our southern location is Caruso's Pizza and Pasta, at 13310 S. Cicero in Crestwood. This is on the west side of Cicero Avenue (Ill. 50), just south of the Rivercrest shopping center at Cicero and Ill. 83.
Our arrival time at both venues, as usual, is 7 p.m., and this is a destination ride, so come on your own or bring friends with you! You can find maps and directions to both locations in the Events Calendar of this site.
