Which year's CyberPub blend is it that I have for you again? It's a half case of the 2011, right?

As for free baggage, you only get one free bag with JetBlue. And unless I can figure a way to pack such that I only need my carry-on, then I'll need that free bag for my suitcase.
But yeah, maybe Cat can bring her 6 bottles to be delivered to you. And the 6 that came home with me can just stay here.

Oh I don't still have all 6. Guess you'll need to bring some after all. Y'know. Christmas. For New Years. Where we're driving and don't have to worry about baggage

You two are funny. Aren't you able to discuss this in person this weekend?

That seems like the most sensible plan to me, FWIW.

On target, it was the 2011, or Cyber Pub Blend #3. Six bottles.

Also, we are planning a get together here in CT for the Xmas week. Need to finalize a date, but maybe you two can make it up. (We have a nice guest room.)

She's already on her drive home (left yesterday afternoon), so no we can't discuss this in person. Though over Gchat, the phone, etc...yeah, those things work too. But much more fun to do it here.

I realized a while after I posted that she was on her way home. And, of course, it is more fun to discuss here!

Bump, anyone in Buffalo or surrounded area this is going to be a great weekend, and some amazing wooters are going to be making an appearance.

Passport with renewal form is now in the mail, so hopefully it should come back to me in time. Otherwise, I guess I get to live in Canada for awhile when they don't let me back across the border.

Nah. You'll be waiting at the border in the US when they won't let you into Canada. Hope you get it in time.

Bump, I'm excited about this event. Java Gourmet the person behind the rubs and coffee might be coming for the dinner at seabar at this event. I just saw her yesterday when I was re-stocking my office coffee.

Booked the hotel. Best Western at Lackawanna at $85/night. Still need to completely convince my wife to go. And have the weather cooperate.

There's a passport office in Buffalo now, where you can get one in a matter of hours. Don't they have such a thing in New York City?

I don't think I'll be able to make this event. I'm in Syracuse, so getting there isn't as much of an issue as being able to leave. I work overnight on both Friday and Saturday nights, so it means taking 2 days off or missing half of the event (or sleeping through part of it, and where's the fun in that?). I definitely will have to watch for other events in the area, though, as I would love to taste some wine and meet people!

Yeah, I assume I can pay via a credit card on paypal since I believe I did that once. I do not believe in linking my bank account through paypal. Just pm me your paypal stuff.

ddeuddeg & I are starting to gear up for the Shakespeare in Delaware Park Fabulous Feast Dinner and Auction on Sat. March 23, 2013. If any of you coming to Buffalo have a bunch of empty gift baskets that you want to get rid of, please bring them with you. We are down to none for this year's Feast and hate to put out money to purchase baskets. Of course, if you'd like to donate a filled one, we'd be happy to accept that from you, too!

Ok, about to book hotel... I got all my ducks lined up, and ready for another trip to Niagara!

To be clear - we are planning on things both Saturday _and_ Sunday? Makes a difference on whether I head home Sunday afternoon or head home Monday. Then again, there is this great beer bar downtown.... Ok, Monday it is!!

See you all on Friday the 25th!

Outstanding! Looking forward to seeing you again. Bahwm and I were just discussing plans for the weekend over dinner tonight. She'll be posting something soon, trying to accommodate everyone's arrival times as well as trying to showcase what's special about Buffalo, foodwise. For now, we're thinking maybe beef on weck Friday night for those who are here, followed by dessert at our house; Saturday's pretty well set with icewine all day and Seabar for dinner. Then we could go to the birthplace of Buffalo-style chicken wings for lunch on Sunday. As always, we'd love to show off our church on Sunday morning. More details later.

Still debating either very late friday night arrival or early saturday morning. Are there plans to carpool from bahwm &d-dog house? If there are, what time should I arrive? Sadly due to the fact that I have to teach a lab on monday I will probably leave on sunday, but might still try to make anchor bar on sunday even though I prefer Duffs. My sunday plans are still up in the air since I should spend some time with my brother as well.

I should probably note that I have all of Friday off and will lazily meander my way out there through the day. Probably leave here around 10am, which should put me out in Niagara around 2pm. I have no doubt that I will be popping into a winery or two, since I intend to purchase passes on the way. Will probably save all my winery purchases for Saturday though so I don't have to keep declaring the wines over and over and over... Will probably make an attempt to be to Chez B&D by 5pm. 3 hours should be enough time to bop around a little and get across a bridge.

For those of you who have sent me a PM with request to pick up yours, I got your requests, I have responded with payment info. As for the rest of you, if you want me to pick up your passes, send me a PM, I'll get you my PayPal info. Definitely prefer having that available prior to heading out there
