Andrew, you should have stopped by Royal Oak NYE, anyways.  It seems like they may have dropped the 18 and over age limit, as I saw some little kids there!  You would have loved it.

Imk, after hearing it was dropped from 21 to 18, I was thinking about calling  during the day and seeing about it... should have! But thats the beauty of living in Detroit, if you miss a Romantics gig you usually dont have to wait that long before another one nearby happens(hopefully the next one will top NYE....).

yep somewhere sunny and warm!!!

Tuesday: Mainly sunny. High 78F.   
Wednesday: Sunny skies. High 79F. 
Thursday : Plenty of sun. Highs in the upper 70s and lows in the upper 60s.
Friday : A few clouds. Highs in the upper 70s and lows in the upper 60s.
Saturday : More sun than clouds. Highs in the upper 70s and lows in the upper 60s.

My God how did The Romantics book a show in Celin Dion's ego. I didn't think that was even possible. Well, at least they will get a photo op with the new baby. I loved the Celin monthly planner I saw in the book stores. Grin

Hey Bookies...
That's a little far for a road trip during the winter months... summer, maybe, but the thought of driving through the mountains in the snow in winter time..... Brrrrr!

1670 miles.  That's a 24 hour drive for me if I average 70 mph.

One helluva road trip.

No kidding.

If this show was "confirmed" on January 2, why is it still a big secret 4 days later?

Aaaaaaaarghhh!  Key West is a BLAST!  I've been there 3 times, and every time I've threatened to stay and make a living busking on the street (or beach).  The 3500 mile round trip is too much for me on such short notice.   Undecided

Hey!!!  (uh-huh!!!)


I found a flight on American Airlines to Miami for a decent price!

I checked on mapquest, it says that it's about 3-1/2 hours from Miami to Key West....Maybe we could fly to Miami and rent a car (or minivan if there are enough of us?)

They have a direct flight, but the return time would be a problem if we have to drive from Keywest to Miami....

American Airlines
Detroit - Miami
$178.40
Flt 1295 - Leave Friday: 11:30 am (gets there at 2:25 pm)
Flt 1294 - Returns Sunday at 7:41 am / 10:45 am (kind of early, so we'd pretty much have to leave from the show and drive straight to the airport! Sad )



Another Option:

$167.10
Delta Air
(Saturday Departure)
Flt 4267 (Flint, MI / Atlanta, GA) 5:35 am/7:40 am
Flt 283 (Atlanta, GA / West Palm Beach) 8:33a - 10:21 a
(There would be enough time to get to Key West without having to miss any of the show.)

Return (on Monday)
American Airlines
Flt 1294 (Miami / Detroit) 8:00 am / 11:04 am
At least, we'd have Sunday to "recover" and enjoy the scenery in Florida.  We could drive back to Miami on Sunday evening and catch the early flight out... Smiley

Either way, it looks like we'd have to take at least a 1/2 day off either on Friday or Monday....

I will have to think about this!  If we can keep the airfare to under $200 and then split the cost on the car and room rental, this actually might be doable!

Smiley

LMK--I think it looks unavoidable--at the very least we might have to take 1/2 a day off... Sad

Unless you want to be really insane and fly in just prior to the concert and fly out in the wee hours of Sunday morning...
(I'm not sure I can do a 48 hour no-sleep marathon these days!)

If you want my 2 cent opinion, take some time in Key West....it's the coolest small town in the U.S.A.

That's what I was thinking, Brew--it doesn't make sense to fly all the way down there and not spend at least a day in the warm weather! Smiley

Isn't it where Hemmingway lived (or something like that?)

I'm guessing there are some incredible views waiting to be photographed!

Yeah, Ernest Hemingway's house is a tourist attraction, and there are a coupla bars that he used to frequent that are very popular.  And you must see a sunset from Mallory Square--it's like a daily mini carnival/art festival built around the sunset.

The only additional details I have is that it is a Club show. Additionally the club may not be in the city of Key West but in the vicinity...
