The spirit of spring was definitely in the air at our April Caffeine & Gasoline event, yet rain was still falling from the sky. The vibe was strong, there seemed to be more story-telling going on, and a lot of people lingered after the show was officially over… all signs that more than flowers are blossoming in the great Northwest.
The store was busy, empty donut boxes piled up at an alarming rate, and our coffee supply ran dry. We are looking forward to the coming fair weather months where people start bringing out their best sunny day cruisers and we imagine the House of Donuts will be happy to see the sun as well as the donut count should be trending upward. We are stepping up our game as our Griot’s Garage Shinefest Pride & Perfection Car Show Series is spooling up for action. The five-show series kicks off May 7. The remaining dates include June 4, July 2, August 27, and September 3. Show hours are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., winners will be announced at 1:30, and store closes at 3 p.m. The shows are judged by the entrants. Click here to sign up at thefoat.com.
There’s a hint of Speed Shine in the air… it smells like… show season. Our next Caffeine & Gasoline is May 6th and the theme is Lamborghini. Double up, attend both events, and make Griot’s Garage the centerpiece of your weekend. We’ll see you here.
