Default Cars & Coffee Virginia Beach @ La Promenade Shops



CARS & COFFEE VIRGINIA BEACH

WHEN: The first Saturday of every month from 7:30am - 9:30am. Next C&C May 4th, 2013

WHERE:
La Promenade Shops
1860 Laskin Road
Virginia Beach, VA
23454

See www.carsandcoffeevirginiabeach.com for updates and directions via google maps

Cars & Coffee is held on the first Saturday of every month.... Sunday or the following Saturday rain dates depending on forecast.

Originally started in Irvine, CA at a strip mall on the PCH, the Cars & Coffee idea has steadily spread to various areas across the country. Here in Virginia Beach we have the beach, we have the sports cars in the area, and we have plenty of coffee so it seemed a logical fit to start a Cars & Coffee event around here.... This is an informal hangout for mature car enthusiasts who enjoy an early morning drive and a cup of coffee.

Are you normally busy on Saturdays with a list of honey-do's or family commitments? Well that's perfectly fine because you can be back home before your spouse is even up Enjoy your car hobby and still enjoy the rest of your day.

Cars & Coffee Virginia beach is held at La Promenade shops off of Laskin road which has ample parking, pleasant surroundings, and an excellent local coffee house on location.

Check out www.carsandcoffeevirginiabeach.com for directions and updates etc.

PS: You don't need a fancy car to come and enjoy!

Zeus posted a C&C in Nova a few months ago after the 1st snow and it was pretty cool. The temperature was cold and the roads weren't the best, but people brought their cars out for a few hours. It wasn't just an import gathering which is cool. If I wanted to see only Corvettes I'd go to Waterside or Carlisle. There was 3 other Vettes, a Viper, Ferrari, Aston Martin and bunch of Benz, Porsche and BMWs; oh and a Saleen S7.

It was good to see a group of car enthusiast stand around and comment on others cars without any (very few) snotty remarks. Everyone was admiring everyone's car.

Yeah that's the whole idea... get a great variation of cars out. The thread on the local board has really gotten some legs. Looks like we're going to shoot for the morning of the Waterside Corvette show... Waterside starts at 9 so there would be plenty of time to get up for some coffee then cruise over to Norfolk.

Would it be OK if I called it Cars & Chocolate Milk? Coffee tastes like poo.

Sounds pretty cool...like I was telling one of my music groups last night as we were talking about fund-raising ideas. "If it sounds interesting, let's give it a shot, what is the worse that could happen....it not work, and we know for future reference"


Good thought Brian.

The ball is rolling... I'll keep this thread updated when we have a location/date/time locked down for the first one. It's looking like we're going to do April 10th (yes the day of the waterside show), but early so it'll start before. This won't be about fund raising or anything... just creating a mature car hangout and attracing some of the nicer cars in the area. Not that you have to have a nice car (I don't equate a C5 to a Ferrari) but it'd be cool to create an atmosphere where the owners of those cars around here want to come out.
