Greece isn’t just the birthplace of modern democracy, it ‘s also the birthplace of some amazing food. On April 15, PhillyMINI will be exploring the culture and cuisine of Greece at Grapevine Cuisine in Downingtown, PA.

This family-owned and operated restaurant offers the most wonderful Greek dishes. All are made fresh daily and include an array of authentic regional dishes from soup to salad to entrée. We’ll be ordering from the menu, which also includes a robust selection of vegetarian entrées.

You can’t get from Philadelphia to Athens by MINI, so this is the next best thing. BYOB is encouraged!

We are limited to 30 diners, so RSVP now!

About Vinyl Day
Todd will be visiting PhillyMINI again this year. You know Todd from such places as White Roof Radio and MotoringBadges. His work appears on most of the head-turning, customized MINIs in North America.

You can see some of his work in his Facebook photo albums here.

So You Say You Want New Vinyl
1. Email ASAP to submit your request. Even if you’ve already touched base with him, make sure you complete this step. Try to be as detailed as possible.

2. Todd will respond and coordinate your artwork with you. This process can take some time and in order to keep things organized, he sorts more extensive work first. Please be patient while he gets everything together.

3. You will receive an estimated time slot. Please plan to arrive a little early and be prepared to stay a little late, as things can be fluid.

So You Just Want To Hang Out?
Yes! Please come by and hang out! We’ll be there all day, so feel free to swing by. If you’ve never been to Helix, this is a great chance to swing by and see the shop.

People usually bring some food but it isn’t required. PhillyMINI will supply the coffee and donuts at breakfast and the pizza at lunch. Please use the online RSVP system so we know how many people to estimate and sign up there to bring snacks, beverages, napkins, cups, and plates. And BYOB is okay (please be responsible, and so forth).

So You Want Helix to Work on Your MINI?

Great idea! Helix will be doing installs that day. Sway bars are popular options. You must call ahead to coordinate this so ring them up at 267-335-4337.

What Do I Do Next?

RSVP here and let us know what, if anything, you’d like to bring!

Get chatty and talk about it on the forum here!
