Wish I had the night off, I'd be all over that. Hope it's a good turnout.

Sounds like the same thing that started the downfall, is going to be what ends it.

Right after cruisers were kicked off Central Ave, they (we) started cruising Metrocenter. The Friday/Saturday night businesses on Central that depended on cruisers for 20+ years, quickly failed. It didn't take long for Metrocenter to install gates and police to prevent cruising, but that quickly affected all the regular patrons too. They never fully recovered and now online shopping and a virus has put the final nail in their coffin.

Looks like someone took it on his own to set up a cruise not knowing  one was officially set up by a reliable source! Tuesday is officially the last one.

Saturday was a little slow but took off after 7 PM.  Lots of cars driving the routes many with their generic cars and SUV's

 

Not sure of Tuesday will be much different
