Let's go with a 12:30 start. Also, I just set up an Ann Arbor Art Fair DO Facebook group, so anyone interested in communicating about this or future events is welcome to join.

I'm thinking dinner will be at 6ish at the same Chinese restaurant where we ate last year. I haven't made a reservation, so am just planning on grabbing tables when we show.

Why doesn't anyone interested in brunch at Webers meet about 930AMish?

I drove by that Chinese restaurant yesterday (Asia City) and saw that it was closed with a sign in the front saying that "Asia Palace" is coming. Just fyi.

What's the name (or do you have a link) to the Facebook group? I can't seem to locate it.

Thanks!

Which large Asian restaurant is still open on Saturday nights that could absorb this group relatively easily?

I can't think of any. It is Saturday night. Art Fair. Large group! Asia City was perfect...considering the circumstances laid out. Any locals have any other ideas?

Would you like to tackle making a reservation? I've gotten myself in trouble quoting numbers of people and then having some no shows.

Also, isn't there an Asian buffet restaurant on the north side of Washtenaw I went to with you George? In a strip mall?

I think you mean an Indian restaurant? I think that may have been the last time I was there; not even sure if it is even still there.

On Wednesday I will have an announcement here, in the FB closed group and on my blog about, well, you probably all figured out what it is...
