Default 19-20 May 2007 - Mary G's Bash

Pulled the trigger! LA to Port Perry

Southwest Airlines can get you to Buffalo NY for $350
Alamo via Hotwire.com gets a compact for about $35/day
The drive from BUF to Jim's is about 170 miles or 3 hours

The best Motel is called San-Man right on the main road and a mile or so from Jim's Not sure about the pirce but hey are about the only place close that Jim recommends....
Port Perry San-Man Motel
treat it as a rack not a place to entertain and you will be fine.

Each of our trips has to have a mission and ours is year is THE SHOE MUSEUM in Toronto
The Bata Shoe Museum - Toronto, Ontario, Canada

We missed it last year as we spent about 4 hours in The Market - this year we know what we will need to get and we might be able to do this quicker.
St. Lawrence Market Home Page

Why are we going to Buffalo? - well last year it was a bit iffy getting certain things through the airport.

If you want our actual itenary drop me a line off line we may have room in da car for 1 person if ya can hang with a screamin' 1.5 yr old and are a non-smoker.

Must have, as it is just going to make things easy, one valid passport,

CJ? Mary G's Bash??? Tell me more....

Is this a FB sanctioned event

JE, have you done Niagara Falls...only 1/2 hour out of Buffalo and worth the detour. You can cross into Canada there.

I don't even want to get into what I got up to last time i was in Buffalo. Let's just say it was my birthday and I was on tour with a punk rock band and leave it at that.

XJ, Red,

I'm having the second annual Mary G's Artisan Bread bash and wine tasting on that weekend. Last year, there were a lot of hungry people on hand on the Saturday afternoon. Anyone on the forum that is nearby, or not, is certainly welcome here.

Jim

JE,

While it might be nice to revisit the falls and the extensive gardens on the Canadian side, don't do it on that weekend. The Rainbow Bridge crossing is the busiest across the continent, and it will be doubly busy on that holiday weekend. Cross at Queenston, instead, it's a lot quieter, mostly trucks.

we fly in to BUF the evening of the 17th will probably stay with some of the relatives that are still alive in the city. We cross the border on Friday. I figured I would have to do an early morning Falls viewing or would not hear the end of it from not only the relative s but also the wife and my parental unit to boot.

Yeah, the falls are worth the quick visit anytime....an awesome experience every time. Lots of tourists.....should go in the winter sometime when it's really cold.

CJ, bread and wine....mmmm What can we bring? Soup, salad and beans?

You might also like the Ontario Science Center....

I lived nearby in Waterloo for 5 years and loved their Farmers Market. I have not done the St Lawrence market...thanks for the link.

So much to do...so little time...
