Sunday: Chicagoland Toys for Tots

Don’t forget this Sunday, December 3th [sic] is the Chicagoland Toys for Tots Motorcycle Parade. The parade starts in Dan Ryan Woods, but despite the best intentions of the organizers, it’s entirely impossible to cope with the freezing mess of twenty thousand or more Harley riders at the starting point, so local scooterists have decided to meet at the cozy Water Hole Lounge at 1400 S. Western Ave, and join the ride around 9:30am. Bring a new, boxed toy (no stuffed animals). The weather doesn’t look too promising, but it’s not a long ride… especially since we’re blowing off about half the distance and the cold wait in the park.

  1. The weather is looking bad, but hopefully there’s still hope. Its expected to be between 2° and 22°. I’ll decide whether I’m going Sunday morning and post a comment here, but I imagine (and hope) there will be a handful of folks there regardless of my decision.

  2. Yeah, a handful is about right. But it’s a great cause so donate something if you are reading this.
