Choose your own destiny  
With just over a week until the 22nd, I'll get this ball rolling a little more specifically than it has been. Time for some decisions!



To begin with, the Science Center is open from 10am to 6pm that day. Star Trek plays twice, at 1pm and 5:30pm. So, here are our options:

1. Eat first (keep in mind, most restaurants around here don't open until 11am or noon on Saturday), go to the exhibit, see the 5:30 show,
2. Eat first, see the 1pm show, explore the exhibit from 3pm until 6pm,
3. See the exhibit, see the 5:30 show, eat dinner together afterward,
4. See the 1pm show, explore the exhibit from 3pm until 6pm, eat dinner together afterward.

No matter when we eat, we'll need to decide where. As I've spent the last three years living a ten minute walk from the Science Center, I've compiled a list of my favorite places. I'll split it by street, so there's some order to it. (WHAT, I LIKE ORDER, OK?) All of these places are within walking distance.

ON WOODWARD:
1. The Majestic Cafe
American Food, vegetarian selection
Opens at 11am
You can expect your bill to be between $10 and $15 (full menu on the website).

2. Bangkok Express
Decent Thai food
Opens at noon
You can easily eat for under $10.

3. Byblos Cafe (technically, it's on Palmer, but it's between Woodward and Cass)
Lebanese and American food
Opens at 11am
You can eat for under $10.

ON CASS:
4. Cass Cafe
Eclectic menu (see website) but tasty!
Opens at 11am
You can eat for around $10.
NOTE: If we eat after seeing the movie, our ticket stub gets us 10% off!

ON CANFIELD:
5. Motor City Brewing Works
Has pub food, but is really known for it's excellent pizza (and excellent beer!)
Opens at 11am
I've only ever gotten pizza here, but I'm willing to bet we'd all pay around $10 for our meals.

6. Traffic Jam & Snug
American food
Opens at 11am
A little pricer, you'll spend between $10 and $20 here.

THE OTHER OPTION:
As I was researching the websites for all of my favorite restaurants around here, this occurred to me:

7. MY APARTMENT
It's a little small, but provided the group isn't too big we could meet here for a meal. Potluck style would probably save us all money, and it might be fun! I live on 2nd Ave off of Warren, so I'm all centrally located and shit.

IN CONCLUSION:
I'm going to make this a survey. Everyone interested in attending, please copy-paste the following into a comment!

The order in which I'd like to do things is:
My first choice for place to eat is:
My second choice is:
I absolutely DO NOT want to eat here:


DO IT DO IT DO IT! And if you have any ideas/suggestions, please let me know!

The order in which I'd like to do things is: exhibt, movie, dinner Actually, like I said before, I don't really care about the order. I just want to meet up with other fans and have some fun before school starts.

My first choice for place to eat is: The Majestic Cafe
My second choice is: Cass Cafe
I absolutely DO NOT want to eat here: Those would be my first two choices out of the places you listed, but the only one that I wouldn't really want to go to is the Thai place. I'm not really a fan of Thai. Or your apartment, if that works out would be cool too. The only bad thing for me is that I'm going to have a 3 1/2 hour drive home, so wherever we end up eating, I probably won't be able to hang out as long as I'd like.

The order in which I'd like to do things is: 2 or 4. A good friend is having a housewarming that night, and I'd really like to fit in seeing you guys and making her party.
My first choice for place to eat is: Motor City Brewing
My second choice is: Byblos Cafe
I absolutely DO NOT want to eat here: I'm not picky; any of the other sounds good. I prefer to go for less expensive options, though.

Thank you so much for lighting a fire under us. I wanted to be more involved in the planning, but then I started a stressful new job last week. It's rewarding, and I'm glad I'm working again, but it's really cutting into my GQMF time.

Congrats on the job! It's no problem, I'm one bossy kid, which they call "natural leadership skills" at my University. :P

Any thoughts on the potluck thing? I'd be receptive to people to saying "no thanks", but I'm just wondering what people think.

I can potluck if everyone else wants to, but I'm coming from Monroe, so it'd have to be something cold from me.

Hey, that's cool. What order would you prefer we do things in?

The order doesn't matter much to me, so long as we hit the earlier showing of the film. I'm sort of locked into my friend's housewarming at this point. (Stupid real life people!)

Thank you SO much for getting the ball rolling. Work for me has been absolute frenzy for me so I haven't been able to make a post. Unfortunately I had some things come up with my younglings so I can't go. Wah... I hope you all have a super fantastic time and I can't wait to see pics!!!!

D: Sadness! We'll miss you! But this isn't the last time MI GQMFs will get together! We'll have to do something for the DVD release. Hope things are well with you.

Things are going well thanks and thank you again for helping take control of this community!! I have a feeling as we go forward this community will continue to grow and grow and grow!! Yay!!

DVD release sounds like an awesome plan!! It would be so fun to watch the extras with others who would get as excited as me over them! :D
