    Oh wow, this will be really different. I'm really hoping I can make it this year. I look forward to seeing everyone again :)

    Sounds like a good setup! I, for one, am looking forward to heavily caffeinated shens.

    WOOT... I am SO in. I fondly remember the cafe and think this year will be awesome. A return to our roots...

    IN, and I'm bringing the West Coast with me.

    Whatever that means.

    This expo might require some jamming.

    I am looking forward to this. I am curious about the sleeping arrangements, though.

    Tenting at ICHQ seems to be a logistical challenge.

    I can't imagine they would like us to set up a bunch of tents in the parking lot, as they would still be open for other business, I would presume. Nevertheless, I thought it would be worth asking.

    I really don't think it'll be much of one; there will be a shuttle, it's only 4 miles, and lots of people drive if you need to make an impromptu trip.

    Any good hotels/motels near the cafe? For travellers?
  • edited February 2011
    Shorty,

    When I went to Expo a couple years ago I got a priceline deal staying in the Courtyard by Marriott in Warren. Not sure how close it is in relation to the cafe, but the hotel was clean, it had a nice breakfast area, little gym to work out in the morning, and the Courtyard is one of the few business class hotels you can stay in where the beds are actually nice. Basically if you go to priceline, negotiate a half price deal on a 3-1/2 star hotel in Warren, its pretty much the only one that comes up in that range, so you know what you are getting into there.

    The LaQuinta has been really nice, and it's usually $40-50 / night for a 4-person room.

    I think the logistical challenge is keeping the tent standing for the duration of the event...

    Both Courtyard by Marriott in Warren and La Quinta are recommended. My parents stay at the former, and Ryder stays at the latter iirc.

    Thanks folks, I am sure that is useful for the likes of Jokke et al! :)

    You guys should list those on the big announcement for those who don't like tenting (or travel a decent distance).

    Edit:// No attendance for me this year. My bass player gets married on the first day of the Expo. I am a best man and required attendee! We (me and the lovely wife) will hopefully make a late summer/autumn smaller event :)

    If you do, Dan, let me know. The Family Kwitko can huff on down for a visit.

    The nice thing is that with the event tent gone, we'll have plenty of room for sleeping tents in the ICHQ yard.

    I MIGHT be willing to share a room if there are folks looking to split a room.

    Warren is home to several major companies; therefore there are many, many hotels to stay in. Several big chain hotels are a mile away from the Cafe. In fact, there are several just under a mile away which is walkable:

    I can recommend the Super 8 Motel in Sterling Heights or Roseville, don't exactly remember, but I guess they're pretty much the same. The bed covers are a bit out of it's time, but the breakfast is great!
