165. Help Team “Elena Rocks” Fight Back Against Cancer

 The 2012 Barrington Relay for Life is happening TOMORROW and team leaders like 14-year-old Nick Rodriguez are in the final stages of preparing for the big night.  Nick’s team, called Elena Rocks, is one of over 90 teams participating in this year’s Relay.  The event itself is an impressive feat in planning, preparation and fundraising, but what I find most inspiring are the personal stories motivating many of the teams to take part.  For team Elena Rocks, it’s a story about two young siblings taking charge in the face of cancer to support their 10-year-old sister, who is a survivor.

164. Hitch a Ride to Barrington Cruise Nights, 2012

 We’ve waited all year, but the day has finally come! The 9th annual season of Cruise Nights and one of the most popular weekly attractions returns to downtown Barrington TONIGHT. The Village of Barrington’s first Cruise Night of 2012 was rained out last Thursday, which was supposed to be “Chevy Night”. So get ready for a double header tonight with Chevys and Exotic Cars taking the Cruise Night spotlight.

There are 13 Thursday Cruise Nights scheduled to take place in Barrington this summer and each week has a different theme.  Fans vote for their favorite cars in the weekly theme and the winners get “People’s Choice Award” plaques, a picture of their car on the Village of Barrington’s website and bragging rights for the entire month!  To get revved up for the new season of Cruise Nights, I picked a good old song with some great driving lyrics as a little background music for this post.  Can you guess what it is?
I’ve been drivin’ all night, my hand’s wet on the wheel.
There’s a voice in my head that drives my heel.
It’s my baby callin’, says I need you here.
And it’s a half past four and I’m shiftin’ gear…
To get your motor running, be sure to play the video below before your read on……
