May 1st to December 31st 06:00 PM to 09:00 PM
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Where: Village of Providence, 7 Town Center Dr, Huntsville, AL 35806
Contact: Call/text Samir 615-512-5520 www.huntsvillecarscene.com



This is a meet. This is a cruise-in. This is just a good time hanging out and talking with your friends and fellow enthusiasts while perusing the cars that have come out. If you remember the old Dairy Queen Meet/Cruise-in in Madison from years past, this event is a reboot of that. It is a family-friendly environment with plenty to eat so bring your kids.

This event is for every enthusiast in the area, young or old, for any enthusiast vehicle new or old, fast or slow, on road or off, 2-wheeled or 4. There is no registration fee, no door prizes or anything like that. Just a good time with fellow enthusiasts.

From Huntsville Car Scene.com: http://www.huntsvillecarscene.com/sh...#ixzz3VbDS5tEK

UPDATED:

This event is in the spirit of the old Dairy Queen Cruise-In in Madison. If you loved that event, you'll love this one—same atmosphere, same vibe, same fun, and even more food choices.

Please enter from the front on the ramp over the sidewalk in front of The Brickhouse AFTER 5 PM (please allow the staff time to set up for the event). We will have some signs posted and cones placed to help aid with parking. Once the front lawn is full we will start parking on the rear lot. If that area fills up please find a parking spot around the grass.



The goal of this meet is to provide a fun family friendly environment. ALL CARS ARE WELCOME and parking will be FIRST COME FIRST SERVE however we do reserve the right to save a few spots for select cars.

Thanks again for everyones continued support and thanks a ton to everyone that helps make this event a success.

Like the old DQ event, this event is rain or shine and year round. See you there!

This event is held in conjunction with the Village of Providence, who graciously permits enthusiast vehicles to park on their grassy park at the center of Providence, surface permitting. When the ground may not be able to support the weight of vehicles, the parking spots adjacent to the park will be used. Parking notifications will be posted here on Huntsville Car Scene.com. This event is rain or shine and year round, just like DQ used to be.

The entrance for the grass field is behind the grass field. There is a small gravel road leading from the pavement. Follow the signs with arrows at the stop sign at Brickhouse. And if you're unsure, feel free to ask someone or contact me directly at 615-512-5520. I may not be able to answer calls immediately the day of the event due to volume, so feel free to call me in advance and I'll explain exactly where to go.

And just like DQ, there are discounts on food at the following restaurants:
  • Mellow Mushroom - 15%
  • Moe's Original BBQ - free banana pudding
  • Sweet Cici's - 20%
  • Tony's Little Italy - 10%
And if you want a meal for free, just stop by at Huntsville Car Scene supporter Liberty Mutual Insurance in Providence for a free quote on your auto and home insurance, and they'll send you a gift card for dinner at your restaurant of choice in Providence. Just have your proof of insurance and ID.

Come out and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of Providence in your favorite ride. See you all there!

Here's a great detailed 3D map of the parking areas by gorkoracing:

The new owner of Sweet Cici's called me the other day and was very happy that we were there. And he's already agreed to give a 10% discount to customers there during the 6-9pm hours of the event.

I'm still waiting to hear back from Mellow Mushroom on what they can do. I know Moe's has agreed to offer something similar to everyone else. I won't have time to follow up on this this week for sure.

You must have read my mind. I was just thinking about this today in the shower.

Tuesdays will work well. I'll try to give you a call this upcoming week. There's only 6 galleries we need to hammer through right now to get back on track for 2012.

There have been several events for the last two weekends. Has anyone gotten out and passed out flyers? Has anyone made contact to the various groups to invite them?

I mentioned it to a few people at cars and coffee but it was honestly a bust this month. Didn't really do much promotion at the KMS event. I plan to do a few fliers.

I'll have Providence print us another box of color flyers to pass out. Then you guys can go in and pick up a stack to distribute whenever you want.

He drives an SL65 AMG. You know how those Mercedes guys are


Looking forward to the next meet. It seems like a long time since the last one for some reason.

Yep, and not a single flyer distributed this month at a big event. I'm not the only one that can keep this alive. Anyone can stop by the Providence sales office and pick up a stack and get them out there--I'm not the only one.

I'll have to talk to Providence about July--especially if they've got another event planned.

I'm doing what I can man. I've been out of town almost every weekend this month. I'm still keeping the group up on Facebook and the interest is still very high. I'm going to try and drop by the EuroBrit show that morning and drop off fliers that I already printed myself last month but that evening I have a race (I can't walk away from a possible $200 pay out I've got a good shot at winning). I still think there will be a great turn out next month.

I feel like the word is out and people are talking. I think we have slacked some on promotion but it's not from my lack of trying. The cars and coffee i went to was very small and almost everyone at the kms event was asking me about the event vs me even having to hand out fliers. Time will tell though.

I'm putting the lotus in the EuroBrit show so if you find that you cant make it Cody and can get the flyers you have to me I'll hand them out while I'm there. I've got some left but not too many (about 10-15)

I should be able to make it by, I may not stay long and leave several fliers with you but I plan to drop by around 11 when I'm on my way to get lunch then head to the track.

I completely understand, but I'm battling the hardest thing I ever have in my life right now, so I have very limited strength for HCS right now. And if you and I both know that if I can't do what needs to be done, and no one picks up the slack, this event will die. I don't want to see that happen. It took a long time for us to get here, and we can't let the momentum slow down.

There's events every weekend. Just hitting one like the KMS one with a stack of flyers helps tremendously. People talking about it helps, but having a flyer does the complete job--it's why it's been the preferred event promotion method locally for over a decade now.

Have you made a new event for the next month or just edited the same event? Let me know if I need to revise/add more to the links here.

I'm working on Providence having a stack of flyers in their office on the front counter at all times so anyone can grab a stack as needed. I don't know what my plans are as of yet. I'm too behind on everything right now and can't even think about working on any of this--other things are demanding my attention.

There's usually about 100 cars there, so it's pretty quick and easy to hit. Also, if you get with the organizers the day before or early that morning, I bet you can just leave a stack at the registration table.

Sounds good. I just checked out that page and saw that someone talked to Tony's Little Italy. You need to crosspost stuff like that here so I'm in the loop. I'll try to validate this the next time I'm in that area as well as followup with Mellow Mushroom and Moes.
