Happy Trails to You

August 28 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

| $30

Bikes, Gas Buggies & Burma Shave

RJ Lindsey portrays Ransom E. Olds, founder of Oldsmobile and the father of the Detroit auto industry. He’ll narrate a slide program detailing the early auto inventors, tell the stories of the 1896 race from Grant Park to Evanston (average speed—5 miles an hour) and the first race across the country, and explain how Alice Ramsey and Madam C.J. Walker made automotive history. What does Burma Shave have to do with it? Why, the billboards, of course!

$30 ticket includes continental breakfast, program, and a shopping coupon good that day. Doors open at 9am, Fulton Street entrance (tables are pre-assigned, so you don’t need to arrive before doors open). Please note: we do our best to accommodate parties of all sizes, but in some cases, parties larger than 4 may be seated at separate tables.
