Friday nights are usually reserved for a nice quiet night at home after a long workweek. Friday nights in Southern California are a little bit different; they are the perfect night to wipe down your ride and check out a cruise night with the family.

Vintage Bombs South Side Car Club started their Friday night cruise nights at Downey California’s Bob’s Big Boy restaurant in the summer of 2010. The restaurant is no stranger to hosting cruise nights, since it also hosts a very popular weekly Wednesday cruise night. The restaurant was previously a Johnnie’s Broiler, and was a landmark cruise spot that continues to bring in a large number of cars and families-even today.

The Friday night we were there, a number of car clubs came out to support the club and the restaurant. Old Memories, Techniques, Viejitos, Goodfellas, Thee Untouchables, and Lo Nuestro were in the spot, showing off some of their best rides. A few solo riders also showed up to check out the event.

The club made sure there was musical entertainment by DJ Chente, Mr. OG, and a balloon artist worked to create some intricate balloon art for the kids. The club also hosted a raffle, and a 50/50 drawing. After checking out the cars, many people went inside the restaurant and had a nice dinner. Bob’s Big Boy has dinner specials during the cruise night for those in attendance, as they appreciate the crowds on those nights.

Next time you and the family are looking for something to do on a Friday night, cruise on down to Bob’s Big Boy in Downey, California for some great food and great cars. Thanks to Vintage Bombs South Side for the invite!
