    I just got done confirming all the odds-and-ends for the trip.  Let me go on record by saying this will be the best eating tour ever.  Seriously, you guys will be talking about this one for a while.  That is all I will say until the event unfolds.


    Stephen, I just want to let you know that this post nearly killed me!  I am SO going to shed a tear that weekend while you are all chowing down!  Congrats on the move!

        I'm sure you've all got this trip well orchestrated, but if you end up having a little free time and want to explore some of the area south / west of Buffalo, you owe it to yourselves to motor on down to Ripley and have a slice of homemade pie at Meeder's (19 East Main Street).

        I've only been there once (tonight) and now kick myself for not having tried it sooner. It's been in operation since 1960 and really seems to be classic roadfood. We had a burger (me) and a classic BLT (Jill) with homemade macaroni salad and potato salad, respectively. Good, home-cooked food (I saw plenty of plates heaped with home-cooked meat, potatoes of all kinds, and veggies out on the floor.

        The sign outside says 'World Famous Pies', which of course I questioned a little since the population of Ripley (village) can't be more than a few hundred people. Well, Jill tried to reserve a piece of cherry pie--too late. So she had strawberry-rhubarb and I tried their custard pie. Can you say real pie? With real pie crusts? OMG, they were fantastic! Maybe the sign is right; maybe they really are world famous pies!

        In any event, the hardwoods are already starting to turn color already; seems early this year. The fields are lush and the harvest is a-happening. On a beautiful day like today was, a drive out in grape/wine country (many wineries along the lake) and a stop at Meeder's might be just the ticket!

              Me too Mike.  Very much looking forward to this weekend.  These bus tours are always so much fun.  So who else is going?

                I am so looking forward to this gathering. I'll be the one in tie-dye. It will be good to see old friends and I look forward to making new ones.

                  Mr Chips - are you in Portland, OR as your location notes? If so, I am spending this week in your fair city in a series of meetings prior  to the eat-fest in Buffalo, and flying there via ORD on Friday for the festivities, Tim is driving in solo from CT and meeting me there.  When are you heading out? My flight is Fri AM.

                      Hi,
                      I'll be joining this tour with several friends--a first-time for all of us.  Some of us are coming in late Fri. afternoon and are looking for a dinner recommendation--I've seen reference here to Wiechec's.  I also see McPartlan's fish fry reco'd on the site.  Just in case some of my group aren't fish-fry-fans....anyone have any other suggestions for something not too ridiculously far from the hotel?  And any advice on just how long we should expect to wait for a table at a Friday night fish fry? Thanks & can't wait for the tour!
