2018 Fuelfed Cocktails & Classics Recap

May 7, 2018

.

The 2018 Fuelfed Cocktails and Classics brought a record number of members out for an evening of good cheer and camaraderie. C&C is our traditional start to the new driving season. This year we had hoped for an early spring snow to show off what Continental had in store for party goers. 

Before that, we want to thank our member volunteers for helping set-up, check-in, serve-up, tear-down and clean up. For without them, non of our events would be possible.

We arranged the Hayes collection in the Ravenswood Event Center so that classics where interspersed in the space and positioned the dining tables and chairs among them. We had Marco from La Macchina Cafe serving his addictive lasagna (seriously), salads and cannoli and Will from Fuelfed’s neighbor Spiteful Brewing and volunteers serving Spiteful’s IPA and Pigeon Porter. Volunteers also teamed next to Will to serve wine from The Bottle Shop in Wilmette.

Half way through the party, the alley doors opened and in roared the new Ferrari GTC4 Lusso in what was to be a demonstration of the new 4WD Panamera eater. But, Mother Nature spared us more salt and extra clean up. Special thanks to Avlet for setting up audio system and mic allowing Continental AutoSports’ Dave and Scott to make the Ferrari introduction to party goers. They happily let the curious explore Ferrari’s finer points.

This year we added Timothy Owens Photography to make sure the event was properly captured by a discerning eye.

Finally, Fuelfed always gives back and this year for our Cocktails & Classics charity we give $700.00 to the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

Fuelfed events are far more than just a party with classic collections, They are experiences that more and more couples are enjoying…as it should be.

Fuelfed Cocktails & Classics

March 2, 2018

 

 

Yes, the famous 7 year running Fuelfed Cocktails & Classics will be held Wednesday, March 21, 2018 from 6:30 to 9:00pm in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. Cocktails & Classics is an evening event for Fuelfed members and classic European car enthusiasts who are considering membership. This is your chance to surround yourself with a great collection and interesting conversation all in a great space.

As is the Fuelfed model, we only partner with independent local merchants to serve fresh fare and adult beverages for our members to enjoy.

Long time Fuelfed member and collector Joe H. has graciously offered his gallery for our winter gathering again at the Ravenswood Event Center where his car collection and neon sign collection are on display. Whether you’re a driver, collector or just a big car fan, you’ll not want to miss this special event.

We are excited to have Continental AutoSports participating this year. They’ll be debuting a new Ferrari model for us at 7:30pm. Can’t wait to see and hear about this one!

A portion of event proceeds will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCA) which funds research into the prevention and cure of prostate cancer. One in 8 U.S. men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime.
