Mercedes-Benz Club of America Southern Stars Section will be at the Caffeine and Octane Jacksonville, hosted at The Avenues Mall in Jacksonville, FL.
In December, we are the "First Coast Car Council" Featured Car Club of the Month, and will be a special corral with the "Central Lot" (It was in a different lot last year ...).
Please bring a new unwrapped toy for Marine Corps Toys for Tots, and lets see if we can break our record last year! To avoid supply chain issues, be sure to buy these toys early in the season! We have Lego kits, model cars and board games ready to go!
Beginning around 7:00 am, Club leadership will begin to assemble in the “Central Lot” at Caffeine and Octane Jacksonville, to prepare for the event starting at 8:00 am and welcome fellow Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts.
Chick-fil-A, as well as restrooms in the Avenues Mall food court, will open early for Caffeine and Octane attendees, at 7:30 am. (Yes, they serve coffee!) You are encouraged to arrive before 7:30 am or so to find a nice spot with us if you would like to park with us in the Central Lot.
Aim for gate #3, to the slight left of the “Exotics Lot” if approaching from the Southside Blvd main entrance. The food court entrance is between the Central Lot parking area and “Forever 21”, very convenient to where we will be staged, which is in front of the "Furniture Source" anchor store.
From Caffeine and Octane Jax (https://www.caffeineandoctane.com/coj-faqs) “If you’re displaying your vehicle, and you hope to be in the Central Lot, we suggest that you arrive by 7 am, at the latest.”
