Greetings All,
 
I need a little more information on this trip. I live in Grand Rapids MI, and would be arriving in Chicago via Amtrak. I presume that I would have to arrive on the day before as my arrival would be 11am or so in the morning. Should I make my own arrangements for Thursday night, or are there possibilities at the group hotel for an early arrival. I see I don't have much time as there are only 7 seats left! Thanks!

hessjm -
 
Welcome to Roadfood!
 
I'll let the folks in charge respond as they may, but in the past, the hotel was often avaiable for the night before and after for those extending their stays.
 
With an 11am arrival, I believe you would indeed need to arrive the day before.
 
Hope that helps a little!

Mary Jane Classen and Jay Olins look forward to adding more T-Shirts to my Roadfood collection. I notice that Alan on "Man vs. Food" has several of the same including RoundRock Pies. His jacket usually covers up the details, however. 
 
We're dining at Alinea on Thursday night just in case there's not enough to eat in Milwaukee the next day.

I don't want to bust peoples plans, but we are also planning a dinner for Thursday night that will draw some more of the local Roadfooders.  An announcement will be coming soon.

Uh oh to what Stephen posted this morning.  We don't get in until late Thursday night.  I may need to look at my flight and see if it can be changed.  We certainly don't want to miss any of the fun!
 
I' m so glad we get to see old friends Jay & Mary Jane again.  And looking forward to meeting everyone else who will be attending their first Roadfood bus tour!

We got our hotel rooms booked this morning.  Thanks Stephen!
 
I am very curious as to what will be the flavors of the day when we make our stop at Kopp's.  What always happens to me is that they will either have two flavors I love or two dogs, at least for me.  I fondly remember the day a few years ago when they had Grasshopper Fudge and Sprecher's Root Beer, two of my very favorites.  I ate a large cone of both that glorious day!
 
What we should do is take a vote of what flavors those of us attending would like and then petition Kopp's for those flavors.  No idea if it would work, but it would be worth trying!

I bet it would work...the next month's list usually comes out some time after the 20th...others may know the exact date.  I check every day for the September list.
 
I like your idea...and nominate you to be our offical Kopp's spokesperson.  Put me down for Chocolate Cherry Cookie Dough...and there's an extra slice of pie in it for you if you make it happen!!!

Kopps really ought to consider inventing a special flavor of the day in honor of the Roadfood crew. How often do they get busloads of visitors anointed by the likes of Jane and Michael Stern? Anyhow, the visit is close to Halloween, so maybe the flavors will be spooky.... Dessert will not be in short supply: don't forget that Solly's (the last stop) usually has homemade pie, and many Roadfooders will have pillaged the Elegant Farmer's selection of pies earlier in the day. And then there's the Kringle....

Don't tell my husband,... I'll have to break it gently that I am spending yet more $$ 
but I did reserve a room for thurs and fri-better than driving back and forth back and forth....
I figure I can always cancel later....

Elaine -
With regard to post #54, my lips are sealed...but glad you'll be joining us!
Now - the OTHER post, what a website...the cherry crisp would be my first attack point!  But I do believe it would be a long battle...but in the end, we'd try 'em all!

....And the flavors for Friday, October 28 are in: Butter Pecan and Pomegranate.  Butter Pecan is a good one, but I'm not so fond of the Pomegranate (very weak flavor).
