I have a card that doesn't charge conversion fees, which would take care of that concern. Paying in cash will work, as long as they'll accept US$ at par. With the currencies as close as they are right now, that's likely enough. If not, they'll generally charge a conversion rate significantly higher than the bank rate, in my experience. That would make the fee-free credit card a better deal.

I'm pretty sure that my card is not payment free (I guess I should check for sure). The other option is to stop across the border and exchange money? How much money are people bringing? Although I'm not sure I will be buying anything unless we find that amazing dry rose again, or there are insane ice wine deals.

A payment free card would be truly wonderful! Probably won't happen in my lifetime.
I think that dry rosé was at Tawse, and I doubt we'll be going there. Bahwm and I are pretty much convinced that exchanging money at the border is a losing proposition. You're sure to pay exchange fee + commission, and with many merchants accepting US$ at par, you can't win by buying CAN$ at a currency exchange.
EDIT: They've de-commissioned the wink? Horrors!

I found that the 3% fee on most cards was still a better deal than converting at airports, borders, etc. I also got a Capital One card for the sole reason that they do not charge foriegn exchange fees.

The syrah rose wasnt Tawse. Tawse did have a riesling that tasted like strawberries. Might have been palatine hill if that is the place we went to last, last year and they opened the winery up. Where do you find out about foreign transaction fees, I should check to see if my Visa has them.

Yup, palatine hills was last.

Go online to your card site and look it up. Search for FAQs about foreign transaction fees.

We have to back out with regrets. Having some trouble arranging the person to watch the dog/house. And then the forecast for snow for the whole trip on Friday. SWMBO and I decided to pull the plug.

I hope you all enjoy Buffalo and the ice wine festival.

IFTFY.
"Mostly cloudy and cold with a chance for a bit of snow or flurries." Quoting from the Accuweather forecast for Friday for Buffalo, Syracuse, and Albany. Wouldn't even slow me down. Needing someone to watch the dog/house, OTOH, would be a problem.
This summer, Shakespeare in Delaware Park and Omakase at Mike A's. I'll put you down for the guest suite.

With the plans for Friday night set, going to the Blackthorn for beef on weck, or whatever, SWMBO started lobbying for a cheesecake I haven't made in a couple of years. One of our favorites, it's topped with apple slices and pecans, and I have gluten-free graham crackers for the crust, so it should be safe for the birthday gal. We can come back to our house to have that with a nice icewine we picked up during our scouting mission yesterday.

Do you want to give me some price and quantity parameters? They can run anywhere from $20 or so to $75 or more, for a 200mL or 375mL. The Cab Francs and Rieslings are my favorites, but the CFs tend to run toward the higher prices.

I was looking at the info for my upcoming class reunion, and it occurred to bahwm that another Buffalo icon food is the Friday night fish fry. From the things about Buffalo page on the reunion website: "FISH FRY - a breaded, often beer-battered fish, traditionally served in most Buffalo area restaurants on Friday. Many Catholics do not eat red meat on Friday because of an (outdated) prohibition on eating meat that day by the Catholic Church, so many restaurants serve fish fry as an alternative. Unlike wings, it is impossible to find a bad fish fry." While that last statement is certainly debatable, they do have a good one at the Blackthorn, in case someone is looking for an alternative to beef on weck.

Perfect. I'm coming off of Sadkhin and was moderately concerned about the beef. Fish fry is great not that I should be doing fried, mind you... But good enough!

You could have it broiled, if you don't mind the loss of authenticity.

$75 for a 375 and I'd scream OUCH! $40~50 would hopefully be a sweet (sic) point.

Some are worth it, but they are rare indeed. I splurged on a bottle of Cab Sauv icewine from Palatine Hills last time for $80.

Local temperatures took a serious nose-dive in the past few days, so Leonard Oakes Estate Winery has its people, mainly volunteers, out picking grapes today for ice wine. Three varieties: Vidal, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. They're expecting/hoping for about a 4 ton harvest.

The meteorologist here just said some light snow on Friday. I thought you WERE planning on driving up on Sat. anyway? I'm confused. Do what's going to work best for you and keep you the safest.

Last year, we met up at D&J's for breakfast Saturday at 9 AM. Most of the wineries do not open until 11 AM. So, if we are on the road by 10:15 - 10:30, that should work fine. However, only tiger has chimed in on D&J. May I have some other thoughts? If those of you who are staying at hotels prefer to grab breakfast there, that's fine. Just say it. We can eat breakfast at our house before we go. Hopefully, we will be grazing enough all day at the wineries that we will not have to get anything more to eat before Seabar @ 7.

I'm flexible, but I basically will not be able to get out of Ithaca until 10pm at the earliest on friday anyway, so if the weather is going to be bed I would rather not chance going on the one lane roads in the dark due to ice. I'm flexible in terms of breakfast if it means I can get an extra hour of sleep, I'm all for skipping D&J, I just need to know what time would I need to get to B&D house.

The itinerary looks great to us.

As far as breakfast, we are fine with whatever the majority wants to do. We are fine meeting at a restaurant or we will be fine with what the hotel has.

Dreading the long flight, but really excited about the weekend.
