Default Germany vs. Japan!! Cars & Coffee Kalamazoo, MI, April 25th

My bro is organizing a "Cars & Coffee" in Kalamazoo, MI the last weekend of April.
This will be the first annual, but many dealers are interested in participating and may offer some sort of goodies/food.

There is no registration, but please let me know if you will be participating so we can get a mailing list together in case of rain-out.

**********************************************************

EDIT: OFFICIAL EMAIL CONTACT FOR MEET: kzoocarsncoffee@yahoo.com
Please use this email if you do not frequent this forum for updates, and to preregister for the event (there will be benefits to doing so, but it is not required)

Hey, anybody in the Kalamazoo area: Cars and Coffee meet, starting Saturday, April 25th. We're aiming to make it a really open format as far as what type/brand/year of cars (think Woodward Autozone meet, if you've ever been to that) Should be fun, just gotta round up all the kalamazoo area entusiasts!

Details have changed a bit, but here is the FINAL location:

Bilbo's Pizza / Brewery
6202 South Westnedge Avenue
Portage, MI 49002
(269) 323-8855

http://www.bilbospizza.com

CHECK THEIR WEBSITE FOR COUPONS ON PIZZA AND OTHER STUFF.

Bilbo's is located in a large shopping plaza, and across a parking area from Bilbo's is a Barnes and Noble / Starbuck's. Also, right across Milham Ave is a Panera Bread. (see map) We'll meet around 9AM and park in Bilbo's parking area (see map). (I'll probably arrive between 8-8:30) Panera opens at 6AM, Starbuck's opens at 9AM, and Bilbo's opens at 11AM.

Bilbo's will be closing off the bar area of their restaurant for our use for a few hours, starting at 11AM.

For anyone who hasn't had Bilbo's pizza, it's delicious, worth a trip!

Also, their drink menu isn't on their website so here it is (although I think things get changed around pretty frequently)

Should be a good spot for photos, I think the lot is mostly cobblestone and there is an old-school train depot with a large train mural.
Haven't seen it myself but should be pretty cool.

I'm waiting to hear back from my bro, should be able to get an idea tomorrow. I think it will end up being a large mix of makes this time.

Slight change in the original plan. Looks like the streets adjacent to the coffee shop will be blocked off for us instead of the empty lot.
Other than that, nothin new, the word is there has been feedback from all sorts of different makes so it should be interesting to say the least, haha.

we do this a little north of Indianapolis on the weekends....but lately it's been more or less of a bunch of us friends getting together so we're trying to expand out (without the garage queens or ricers). We usually get a few NSX, Corvettes, Zs. And had some Lotus, Porsche, Lamborghini, etc too. Not geared towards exotics, just a bunch of us mature gearheads.

We usually sip on coffee, talk about brake proportioning valves (not about the racing heritage of Ferrari) or something stupid like that and go for a drive afterward weather permitting or go work on cars, etc. PM me if you're interested.

Ok people, it's time to get a list going of those who are planning to attend...
The word is there should be a good turnout from a bunch of other forums.
Just copy and add your name.
