Freddy's cruise nites. Our first cruise was a blast. We probably had about 40-45 vehicles, a DJ who blessed us with music to the theme of the vehicles that were present.  Some folks were even dancing on the parking lot.  And they all enjoyed those FREE custards that Bill, the manager gave to the participants.  Looks like these cruise nites at Freddy's will be growing and that a lot more folks that used to hang out at the Owl Café will come join us on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month.  The next cruise nites will be October 4th and the 18th from 4:30 to 8 PM .  Best news also is that the manager is now allowing us to park our vehicles up front where they can be seen from Central NE.   Joe Mascarenas - 505-235-5900.
