Keep Your Eyes open for these upcoming Events

Check out what is happening October 27th! It's a field trip!
More Info to Come, just starting to gather info now. Plan is to rent a van and have it tote us around, stopping at Tequesta Brewing Company, Bx Beer Depot, World of Beers, Due South and do tastings at each location. Like I say, I am just starting to do the legwork now, so just save the date state.
Let me know as soon as you know you are interested so I can plan accordingly
the cost of this event will be in the range of $30-$35. Purchasing beer at the stops will not be included so that you can budget your flights or single pints for yourself. Your price will include a delicious "lining your bellies" lunch at the Serenity Garden Tea House and your transportation for the day. Timeline and More to come

She is holding between 5-8 rooms – to reserve your room they take payment equal to one-night (weeknight) stay = $116.10

Call her directly (or email) and mention Kristina Parker or GULP for the special rate, these rates will be guaranteed until 1/23/12, after that you’re lodging is up to you.  The Platypus Tour (wine tour) will be picking up from this hotel on Thursday morning.

Platypus Tours

They will be picking us up from our hotel (above) at 10am on Thursday, Sept. 27 and we have them until (at least) 4pm – depending on how many wineries we choose to visit.  They don’t need a money deposit for reservation however, they take a credit card and will take payment after the completion of the tour in whatever currency we choose to give them.
Quoted me = $1150 with gratuity for 10-14 ppl, + an extra $15 each if we want picnic lunch included (I say we go for it!)

How many people are we on this tour?

Bay Area Brew Tours

16-18 people, 3 breweries, 5 hours and lunch = $85 each + $8 each for pick-up out of their area.  I know Lagunitas and Sierra Nevada are both popular choices but they aren’t very close to one another so we may just have to do Lagunitas and pick 2 others we have an interest in seeing.

$250 non-refundable deposit due at time of Reservation
Remaining funds due 1 week prior to reservation appointment and is non-refundable at that point.

Example: 16 ppl @ $93 each = $1488 - $250 non-refundable deposit = $1238 due on 9/21/12.

 Flights (as of Friday, January 06, 2012)

From PBI to SFO about $378 and from Ft. Lauderdale to SFO about $486 from Ft. Lauderdale to SJC (San Jose) it is about $396 and from MIA to SFO about $526
Let’s all keep an eye out for any deals that come across our desks and be sure to share them with the FB group.  Seems like it makes sense to just fly out of PBI at this point and if the rates continue this trend.
