2022 Bimmers & Beans at Calibre Coffee #3

Aug 28, 2022

The Geneva Concours d’Elegance may have been canceled, but Windy City BMW found an alternative! On August 28th about 25 Windy City BMW members met up for an impromptu Bimmers & Beans at Calibre Coffee in South Barrington from 8 to 10am. Unfortunately it rained for about 10 minutes and everyone’s car melted, leading to us all uber-ing home. (Just joking!) The sun did come out almost immediately after and we all had a great time. We had an M4 GTS, an E30 M3, a 135is, an M8 convertible, a supercharged NB Miata, and lots more awesome cars on display. Wax your cars and come on out to these events even if there’s a bit of rain in the forecast. You’ll still have a great time and it will give you a reason to wash your car when you get home!

I want to give a huge thank you to Blaine Bontempo, owner of Calibre Coffee, and Josh Tupas, the manager, for having us and for the 15% discount on our coffee given to Windy City BMW members. Also thank you to Stacy Kallas from The Arboretum of South Barrington for helping with the logistics of the event. It was another great event. Sorry it was such short notice, Blaine, but thanks for still accommodating us. Let’s keep doing this, Calibre Coffee! Last thing: don’t forget to sign up for VINfest!

Enjoy the event through these photos.
