I've got a lot of PS that wants to be tried and I can't do it alone. I will provide the wine for this one, and will suggest a cover charge for everyone. And of course, there will be food provided.
And the special feature of the evening:
A three-year vertical of CORISON Petite Sirah (Acapella label).
For taxi service from/to the airport for our out-of-town friends, might I suggest Metro Airport Taxi
, which has reasonable rates - $44 each way between my place and the airport. I am more than happy to come get people, however, I don't want to be spending hours going back and forth to the airport.
For Friday arrivals:
We are making a run to the airport at 6:30pm. If you're in by then, we'll pick you up. I am staying home from work on Friday, so if you arrive significantly earlier, we can probably do a second (earlier) run.
For Saturday arrivals:
As of 4/16, the two "ideal" times to be arriving into DTW look like by 11:30am and 2:30pm on Saturday. I will be doing the 11:30am run, and mother is arriving around 2:30 and renting a car, and has offered his chauffeur services.
For Sunday departures:
Since it looks like most of us (including myself) will be going to the game, if you are NOT going and wish to depart on Sunday morning, I can drop you off before or after breakfast - the airport is a short hop from the planned breakfast joint. If you ARE going to the game, I don't think it's wise to try to leave on Sunday.
For Monday departures:
I have to work. If your flight is in the morning, I am happy to bring you to the airport before I go to work, but it's gonna be crack-of-dawn early.
If you are in the McNamara terminal (Northwest airlines & its partners), plan on it taking approx 30 minutes to get from check-in to the gate. Add about 10 minutes if you're checking bags.
If you are in the North terminal (everything else), plan on it taking approx 45 minutes to get from check-in to the gate. Add about 10 minutes if you're checking bags.
TMR arrives. Tommy arrives. Tenuki arrives (6:20pm @ DTW). Dinner at π(Pi) of Southfield
Loweeel & HAK arrive (11:30 @ DTW).
Lunch at Hellenic Coney Island in Southfield
mother arrives (2:30 @ DTW).
The Main Event @ 5pm:
Cost is looking to come out to something like $35pp, which will cover the cost of wine & food. Locals are welcome to bring any extra food, but I am providing lamb & kangaroo, along with whatever else I pick up for it (cheese, crackers). Could probably use a dessert.
