ok. how bout Sunday April 2nd at 3pm at Mr. B's Spectadium in Troy. The wings play minnesota at 3:30pm that day. Anyone, anyone??

4/2/06 will work. maybe meet an hour or two before the game to get good seats, get food and get aquainted? Yeah, that will work.

That will probably work for me (I may not know my work schedule for sure until a couple weeks ahead, but my guess is that it'll be ok).

I would say let's get there an hour before the game. If we do Champps (Big Beaver just off of I-75) then we don't want to get there too early. While they have huge TVs, they run the place more like a "real" restaurant than just a sports bar. If we meet by 2:30, we should be good to stay for a few hours as long as we tip well! smile.gif

SWF, you're still in town at that point, right?

You will be able to get in and have food and non alcoholic drinks, but they will not serve you alcohol.

Come for the game and the people, be less concerned about the alcohol.

Baaaah, I probably will. I'm so afraid of my birthday this year, tooooooo many people have said they have crap planned for me.

April 2, meeting at 2:30pm at Champps in Troy (click for map).

Right now, count me and Mr. Muse in. I'll let you know if one or both of us has to work.

So far, the count is:

RivalRed
Timothy1997
Dallas27
SWF
Hockey Matters
Muse
Mr. Muse


Who else is in? We'll need to make a reservation to get a large table with a good screen view that we can camp out at.

I'm unsure...first of all I'd have to ask my partner in crime, OsGod, if he wants to go. Honestly, though, I don't think I'll have the money. With school, hosting a shower for my cousin, and a vacation coming up...it's iffy.

It's a bit far from my house but I could make the hike I'm sure. You guys should make this a regular event I'm sure I'll make it one of these times...

To the best of my knowledge, Champps does not accept reservations. That MAY just be on weekends, but I don't think so.

Will Mr. Muse be rested this time around? We'll expect a little more out of him since he's met the initial cast of characters and knows what to expect and doesn't have a huge audition coming up. tongue.gif

Geez, too bad you can only bank those points for a week, eh?

I'm penciled in. I don't see any reason at this point why I can't make it, barring getting arrested for child abuse. (My 13 year old is lounging at home during midwinter break not doing his chores as we speak while I'm at work.) The fact that I am currently posting on a hockey message board rather than slaving is immaterial.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Grrr, I'm in Chicago that weekend!!



Otherwise the BF lives in Detroit, so I'm there just about every other weekend and would totally meet up to watch a game sometime.


Maybe next time!

Reservations: I'm hoping that if we have a group of more than 8, they'll hold a table for us. With it being the middle of a Sunday afternoon, I'm guessing getting a table won't be a problem anyway.

I can't guarantee Mr. Muse will be more rested. He will be mostly done with his semester, done with several major concerts, so he might be a bit more perky than he was last time.

Banking points: um, yeah. I'll go to the gym. BTW, even with our pigout & drinking a couple of bottles of wine last week, I still lost 2.5 pounds by the weekend. Cool.
(Muse says this while eating some pita chips, which will likely help her gain the 2.5 pounds back).

You can always bring Planny with ya. Tell him he gets to hang out with the "crazy lady" again.


MSUdoubleJ19: you name the weekend. Many of us are always here - pick the date and let us know! I dunno if I can keep up with you and your belligerent drinking, though. tongue.gif

I will MAKE you keep up. smile.gif


And if you still can't, I'll take Mr.Muse on if necessary. He's a spartan, he should be able to hang.

i think that the event should be Mr B's Spectadium. I have been there several times during parties for members in the old red wing chat. We had 20+ people at events in the past and they have tons of things to do besides watch the game on their huge tvs. They have pool tables, dart boards and video games. Champps is good but it is more like a restraunt.
