We just confirmed our plane reservations (arriving at 1:10 pm Fri Jan 15) and hotel reservations at the Sheraton Society Hill Hotel and look forward to the banquet and a little time away seeing some historic sites nearby the hotel (apparently known as the most historic square mile in America). Tammy and I wanted to meet some folks we've yet to meet and to be there firsthand for the BOD election announcement of results. Nothing in stone yet but win or lose, we'll try to host some sort of an after-party after the banquet! Looking forward to the weekend!

Not sure if it will be in the cards for me this year. We'll see.

The only way I could afford it this year was because we already had almost $300 in credits with Southwest Airlines so for a $504 round trip for two, we got off light at $187.

As someone from Philly I can definitly state the case for Tony Lukes. Tony Lukes has a number of great sandwiches.

Pat's and Genos lag way behind most steak shops in Philly. Jim's Steaks on South St not far from Society Hill Sheraton is far superior.

Thanks for the info, Ron! Of course never having eaten an authentic one FROM Philly, any of them will probably be great to me! :lol: Maybe for time's sake (and the fact we'll have no transportation), Jim's might be the place of choice unless we can catch a ride with some folks going to Tony Lukes.

Steph, I wonder if we can get a small meeting room cheap for an after party so other guests don't complain like they do here in KC. :lol:

if there is enough interest, maybe KCBS can work out a member's discount.

Go to the banquet and you will know. It is when I realized that gaining that top 10 in KCBS Team of Year wasn't worth a damn... OK, maybe amongst the cooks, but no one else. They actually handed me my medal on the side of the stage.... so I guess we are just fluffers Ron... Because they did not miss an opportunity to tell us how much money would be coming in and we would need wheel barrels to carry it home...

I've been to quite a few banquets. Saturday is mainly meetings and the banquet. Friday night is kinda the party night. Last year in Nashville, there didn't seem to be too much camaraderie in the bar area at any time that I saw. Coulda had something to do with a short vodka/cran costing $10....I dunno. We had fun anyway....

For all the KCBS folks that read this Forum... they need to take note of that and make sure the drinks don't cost an arm an a leg... So teams can actually mingle together!!! Oh and make sure you have Jack Daniel's to drink cat the banquet.. Especially if we are in Nashville. as I sure don't want to have to pull out my Squire Card in Philly to get us Jack at the banquet....

But you are right Steph, there was no mingling after the banquet this year. I think the bar was shut down by 11 pm.... Lame....

While I love you guys and potential to meet a few new Brethren for the first time would be cool, I'm likely gonna pass on this event.. seems like a bore. Reminds me of a wedding or something without the 70's era disco music.

Having trouble finding an events schedule. Does anyone have one?

Looking for what time and day the banquet is? Also, what else will be going on and what time.

Thanks!

My guess is that everyone who registered will get something once registration ends.

I really feel like the dinner and awards ceremony is Saturday night, but I have searched for awhile and cannot find anything confirming that. I would e-mail Kelly Cain at the KCBS office in the morning to know for sure. Sorry I can't help you more, but I look forward to meeting you there!

I was thinking that due to the drink prices, we should look into reserving a small banquet room for an after party. Wonder what the cost might be on something like that? Would be a great way for everyone to get together. Of course if I'm celebrating something else that night, I'd want anyone welcome, not just a Brethren gathering.

Maybe we can make it a theme party?? ;)

Still trying to talk my sister in going. She was not impressed after last years folded up by 10:00 pm.

Otherwise Jeff, I am sure we could all go and hang in Steph's room!!!!

I'm thinking something a little more casual and probably outside of the hotel, approximately 2 blocks away.....waiting for return phone calls :tongue:

oh yeah... brings back fuzzy memories...:lol:
We are so IN!

FYI... anyone with an oversized vehicle (like my groovy conversion van)... any bigger than 6 ft tall... there is not really enough room in the garage... they think they'll be able to accomodate me (outside on their ramp for the same valet $), but they can't tell me for sure until after the New Year... :confused:

Does anyone that is familiar with the area have any ideas on this?

I hope I don't have to park in Jersey... :wink:

It'd be a cool thing to host one...but, I'll for sure have a bottle to bring to any after-banquet gathering. I'm just hoping that both Jeff and I have something to celebrate! Oh, and I'm glad I'm not driving -- my van is 9-1/2 feet tall!

Must have been the lack of oxygen in the stairwell, Michelle! Or maybe it was Spurgeon making us all laugh so damned hard that we couldn't breathe! Either way, it COULDN'T have been the booze! :lol:

Would everyone be hip to hitting a bar around 2 blocks from the hotel? Meeting rooms at the hotel do not allow for byob and their drinks are probably expensive....just puttin' it out there.

Is this going to be another lame bar that closes at 9:30 pm? Let me guess, they won't have Jack at the banquet either? Man, get us back to KC and have Steph organize. We never had these problems...

We can just go and party in your room Steph... :twisted:

There is a place that used to be called the Phila Fish Company and they changed last year. It is called Q BBQ and Tequila. It is on Chesnut a few blocks away

Nope. I've done research and the bars I've given Jeff to choose from close at 2 a.m. AND you can smoke in them!!! FOUND OUT PHILLY IS SMOKE FREE....outdated websites piss me off.
