from mother:
So on the airport issue:
BDL and HPN are each about 75mins from here.

JFK/LGA Are about 1:45

BOS/PVD/EWR Are all 2-2:30 Away.

You will probably want to plan on a car unless you can arrange with other people.

There is also a HVN (Tweed New Haven) airport right here, but that is only an option for people with USAirways miles burning a hole in your pocket (2x a day puddle jumper to PHL).

from wootified:
Another 90-120 minute away airport alternative is SWF which is Stewart Airport in Orange county, NY. It's Near me - send pm if you have questions.

Dinner the night before for earlier arrivals:
I'm tempted to go the Miya's route. Awesome non seafood options for those not into fish, raw or cooked. It's really quite an experience that I'd love to share with everybody. We can do pizza on Thursday, or even Saturday/Sunday afternoon, if anyone is interested in that option.

Also, everyone should have a pm from me regarding where to send payment. If I don't here from you by July, I'm going to bump you from the list and move the waitlist up.

Since I know that Darlene and Mother will be in here, eventually.

I have your Concannon PS from Cheron, via HAK. It is three for one and two for the other, labelled on the box, so I forget.

It is stored nicely in the cellar. And I opened one of my pair. Still drinking wonderfully. At $10/1.5l, this is the best deal in wine you could ever find.

What can we bring? I can bring table again, and promise not to forget it. (I will tape my keys to the bottom of the table.)

I have a bottle of IH bubbly and pair of glasses for mother, been sitting on it since he had me order it last summer. As far as I know, that's all I'm holding for anyone. Unless we don't see Tiger before then.

Please add me to the waitlist as I'll come if a spot opens up . I'm assuming that if it people get pulled for nonpayment or can't show up it'll happen with enough enough time to get a hotel room.

I received payment via paypal from someone I don't know, and who didn't include their wooter name! If Mr. D. H. would id himself, that would be great!

It was sent to Krugsters. So as far as I know it is still there.

Yeah, Krugsters still has them. I haven't even picked up mine yet. If someone else doesn't obtain yours & PB's for you before the clambake, I'll make sure to do so such that I can bring them with me.

If you do the Miya's on Friday, what kind of time would you be planning on? Basically if Cat flies in on Friday, and I leave from work to pick her up from the airport, and continue on straight to Miya's....just trying to figure out if that would even be an option and how early we'd have to schedule all that stuff.

If you're polling for interest, I'd probably prefer pizza instead. Although I left the midwest long ago, I brought with me an ingrained suspicion of raw fish. Just. can't. do. it. Not even those cooked 'California rolls' that everyone insists that I will really like and I never, ever do. Ever the optimist, I scanned the menu for something that did not scream "raw!" and saw some tempura items, but candidly admit that I'm not terribly fond of fried things either.

HOWEVER, I'm nothing if not accomodating. If everyone else is keen, I'll show with enthusiasm and sip fortifying beverages while the rest of you indulge your (terrifying) love of the sea.

And both myself & Cat are in for Friday night at Miya's. I'll be picking her up at the airport in the morning, we'll head into NYC for a bit (and hopefully pick up PB's & dsapp's d'Yquem bottles, while visiting with Krugsters), and then head on up to CT for the evening festivities.

Miya's can be way more than raw fish. Take a look at the menu, very little is in fact raw fish. Lots of veggie, nothing is tempura in the way you are accustomed.

Awesome. Not sure on time just yet, maybe 7:30 (which will cost more) or 9:30 (our traditional late night special time).

I still think you need to move her to be next to me on the list...and get speedoo out from between Cesare and kttest.

Are we all picking the same hotel or different hotels? I figure why let the party stop when the clambake is over.

Haven't even begun to look at hotels yet. Which is highly unusual for me - usually by this point I would have had everything all set and ready to go

I'm tempted to come with the wife, let me see what's up that weekend. If I do should I bring the 6 liter monster?

I noticed that I'm listed as going to Miyas. I can't. Or at least, I can't eat there if I want to eat at the clambake. I have a limited ability to eat seafood and not be ill later. I can have Miyas **or** I can have clambake. And I know myself well enough to know that I can't be at Miyas and not have fish. (Don't even try to go down the path of "vegetarian sushi" That is an affront to nature.)

Sorry about that.

Taking a break from honeymoon to check woot.

Now official, Mr. and Mrs. justinrsanderson are both in for the 'bake and atleast 1 of us, if not both for Miya's.

Pizza at some point sounds great. Should we try a different place this time since we've done Bar twice? Maybe Modern Apizza, Pepe's, or Sally's?

Will send payment when I get back next week.

Miya's is BYOB, and nothing like you've ever had for sushi.

Hotel - not sure, haven't booked it yet, but the gang has a preference for the after-party...

Friday night - Miya's sounds good to me.

Might go for pizza on Sunday afternoon, before I head back.

darlenee1 will need to add you and the lovely MrsMadpoet to the waitlist. Unfortunately, this event has a cap on the number of attendees. Mostly to preserve mother's nerves and the good graces of the neighbors.

Ah well. I'll have to figure another way to drink the impulse buy perhaps.

So how many people are interested in getting together on Friday, but not for sushi? I don't expect that all of us that are interested in getting together can be in one place, so a couple of groups will work.

If there is enough interest, we can do burgers, etc. at our place. We are about an hour from New Haven area.
