Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

When I first arrived at the Cupid’s Hot Dogs event I wasn’t sure what to expect, me being a car-show-and-cruise-night newbie and all. I soon found myself immersed in conversations that had less to do with the actual cars and more to do with community. Many of the car clubs are avid supporters of local schools and causes and often help to raise money and give back to the communities in which they live.

Cupid’s cruise night and car show brings out first timers like Justin Collins, whose 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass has her own instagram, @72oldslady, as well as those like Brenda Escandon who has been to the festivities at Cupid’s before and whose 1968 Chevy Camaro sports a license plate that reflects her colorful spark, “PURPLEB.” Or the decades-long partnership of Jeanie and Tony Pinto, whose love of classic cars and each other is far-reaching and I gotta say, two of the sweetest humans you’ll ever meet. Many swing by, hang out, laugh, grab a bite, and then it’s on to the next cruise somewhere else in town.

The range of cars that show up for cruise night are as diverse as the people who drive them and are a wonderful reflection of the amazing community that makes Los Angeles such a badass place to live.

And with community in mind, let’s not forget the amazing duo who make this all possible: sisters and slayers Kelly and Morgan of Cupid’s Hot dogs. (@cupids_hotdogs) You will find them, along with Adrianna Gaxiola, roller skating into your hearts and lives during Cupid’s carhop service every Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m. at their Winnetka location.
