I tried to find the old thread about the event because I have questions some of you from Detroit might be able to help me with. How far is the Hotel Ponchetrain from the Cass Cafe? Any idea how much by cab? Is there a shuttle bus from the aiport to hotels or should one take a cab.I have found a pkg deal for hotel & airfare on Spirit Airlines that doesn't sound too bad.Thanks for any info. I was planning on coming up on Thursday afternoon so I could possibly see Mrs. Edwards at the Motown Museum on Friday.Thanks again.

The cafe is approx 2 miles north of the Ponchartrain. Cass runs parallel to Woodward and is one block west of it. A cab should be reasonable from there.
Here is an old advert for the premises. A new one will be prepared by Lowell in the near future.
Regarding shuttle buses, I would e-mail your hotel. A cab to downtown Detroit is approx $35-$40. Most of the shuttle buses I've seen are for hotels around the airport or for car hire companies.
Ponchartrain looks like a nice hotel and may be "big" enough to have some kind of shuttle.
Looking forward to seeing you Tony.

Motown singer Frances Nero is in the business of ferrying customers to and from the airport; she's licensed by the city and can deliver you to any downtown hotel. (You have to have a special license to do that). You guys who are coming to town should call Frances -- her company is called Ride and Relax Tours, I'll try to find the number ...

I like to find out about the event in May and also the date. Are you renting out space or tables?
|By David Meikle (184.108.40.206) on Tuesday, March 25, 2003 - 09:22 am:|
It would be really nice to see you there.
Unfortunately we will not be renting any space.
Tables will be set for meals beforehand.

Forgive me but I was totally in the dark about the event. What is it that your having? A concert? What?
|By David Meikle (18.104.22.168) on Wednesday, March 26, 2003 - 10:04 am:|
It will basically be a forum get together.
There will also be music celebrating the Detroit Sound.
The music of your late Father, Mike Hanks, will be well represented.
There will also be a few "names" attending.
Mike Hanks was so influential in sixties Detroit.
Hope you can make it.

What day is that in May?
I would love to attend.
Would you like someone like my brother to
perform some of my father's songs?
Let me know,
|By David Meikle (126.96.36.199) on Friday, March 28, 2003 - 04:57 am:|
The event will be Friday 23rd May.
Your brother singing Mike Hanks songs excites me greatly but I have doubts about being able to accommodate this....but leave it with me.
Looking forward to meeting you.
