This particular work focuses on a ritual from back in the day. The night we cruised, which was actually 3 nights, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Cruise Night was the way we referred to it back in high school. Today, Cruise Night is a location where hot rodders gather, hangout in the parking lot, and talk cars. Here is Southern California they are generally sponsored by restaurants who are either trying to stir up business, or restaurants that are in trouble, as my car buddies and I have sadly closed many.
