Panera Bread Restaurant and Charter Oak Firebirds car club host a Saturday night cruise- in on the Berlin Turnpike in Newington, Connecticut on the first and third Saturdays of the month through mid-October. Their cruise-in continues to grow in popularity, and on the two occasions that I’ve attended this season I can only describe it as “densely packed”. The parking lot, exit lanes, and lawn area alongside Panera Bread were filled to capacity by 6:15 PM. More info is available at the club’s website at www.charteroakbirds.com. I hope you enjoy a few photos of the gridlocked cruisers!
