    Hmmmm.  At the risk of appearing dense, I don't find the link to the hotel reservations anywhere on line and only discovered it through this post on the forum.  I am sure I must be overlooking it, but could someone direct me to the link?  Or do we just book at the hotel directly?
     
    Thanks.

      According to a computer search, SpringHill in downtown Memphis is booked up for the tour dates.  Is there a block of rooms reserved?
      Thanks.

        If you click HERE, this should take you to the Spring Hills website, with the ROADFOOD code already filled in to get you the special room rate.  There are some rooms still available, but the special deal ends September 17th, so if you are planning to go, now's the time to reserve a room.

            Dear Chitowndiner:

            Have you ever frequented the "Calumet Fisheries," in south Chicago? If not, please ignore this post. If you do frequently, could you take a photo of their smoked shrimp and sturgeon and email it to,

            mnakashi.20740.1999@gmail.com

            I need these photos to accompany a Roadfood restaurant review in which my photo was of insufficient quality for posting on the site. Since I live in Las Cruces, NM, I am unlikely to get to this place in the near future.

            See you in Memphis!

            Thanks,
            Marvin Nakashima

              Hi Marvin - only been there once and sorry but no pictures. Perhaps someone else in our ChIcago group has some. I'll put the word out and see what I can find before we meet in Memphis...looking forward to some snacking! CTD

                Just heard Walking in Memphis on the radio, which got me even more fired up about the upcoming tour.  Besides ChiTownDiner, cousin Johnny, Cubs Fan and myself, who else is going?

                        Sorry Big_g, the Hawaiian shirts are for the annual Glee Club get-together every President's Day weekend.  For the Roadfood bus tours, just bring your best eating t-shirts!

                              Abe Froeman had pictures but not of the 2 items you requested.  We'll see if anyone else has pictures from the Chicago meeting at Calumet Fisheries.

                                There are a bunch of photos of Calumet Fisheries in the "Spring Fling for the Milwaukee/Chicago Contingent" thread.  Check out the link in abe_froeman's post #180, bottom of page six.  Unfortunately, as CTD indicates, none of them are of the specific items you're looking for, but they're still some pretty good illustrative shots of what Calumet Fisheries is all about.
                                 
                                MIlwFoodlovers also has some good overview pics of Calumet Fisheries linked in his post #182, page seven.
                                 
                                I know some of the Contingent members have since made return trips to Calumet, and the ladies (a_f and s_d) I'm thinking of always carry cameras with them when they eat.  Perhaps there are some photos of the Smoked shrimp and sturgeon that haven't been seen before on Roadfood...

                                            Hello everyone,
                                             
                                            Long time lurker here from Chicago.  I recently purchased a seat for the Memphis/Arkansas food tour for next week.  Now forgive me if this is a stupid question, but what do I do now lol?  I only received a PayPal confirmation number after completing the ticket purchase... How do I find the bus in Memphis lol
                                             
                                            Thanks in advance,
                                            Danny Nowak

                                                ChiBears15 - There are no tickets so you're in.  The bus leaves from the hotel each morning and then returns in either the late afternoon or evening.  The official tour hotel is the Springhill Suites.  See Michael Sterns post up near the top of this page for exact location.  I don't think anyone has posted a departure time from the hotel as of yet.  Typically, we depart between 8am-9:30am.  That should give you a good idea until either Stephen or Michael posts something.  See you in Memphis - CTD

                                                  It looks like we are going depart from the hotel at 9:30 AM on Friday.  An official email will come soon.

                                                    CTD - Thank you very much for the information!
                                                     
                                                    Since the tour bus departs Friday morning, I am assuming most eaters will be arriving in Memphis on Thursday.  Therefore, would anyone like to maybe have an opening night dinner somewhere?  I was thinking we can go to Blues City Cafe on Beale St. or maybe the Bar-B-Q Shop that is East of downtown Memphis.  Someone else mentioned Rendezvous earlier in this thread... That would be great too!  Please let me know if anyone is interested

                                                      Thanks, too, Buddy, I pulled a couple of pics, i.e. smoked fish and how foods are served at Calumet, from a Facebook page of photos of the Spring Fling by Lucy Sanders and posted them with my review with attribution.

                                                          Danny and anyone else:
                                                          I would love to get together Thursday pm for dinner, however I am not sure what time my wife and I will arrive.  We are driving in.  Let me know if a time/place get established and we will try to meet the group there if possible.  Here's hoping the imminent "shutdown" does not affect air travel plans!

                                                            While I am arriving earlier also, I have plans to be in Northern Mississippi on Thursday.  As of now, I am not sure of my arrival back into Memphis but will monitor this thread for a time and place in the hopes of meeting up.
