Zombie Prom Date Knitters-Take over Bell's Brewery!

So Zombie Prom Date Knitters normally (and always) meet Thursdays from 1-3ish.

But there had been requests from people who have, what are those things called, they pay money, sometimes involve heavy lifting, have 401k's and such, oh, daily grind. Wait, isn't that a dance show?

Yeah, those people asked about having an evening knit night. (Dancers need to relax too.) So, we thought we would start meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at Barnes and Noble. That didn't work. We were too loud for B&N.

The next 2nd Wednesday we tried the Koffee Klutch in Galesburg. Now, we looooove the Klutch, but we need later hours. Like much later hours. Plus, again, we're really loud.

But we are keeping the Klutch as our go to place for Saturday meet ups, central locale "let's all meet up, get a great coffee, and then car pool to an excellent yarn/fiber/zombie infested location."

So, the only thing that has really stuck is, the name~Zombie Prom Date Knitters~ and the 2nd Wednesday of the Month. So for a bunch of rag tag knitters who do charity knitting by day, and fight the evil horde of zombies (when the mood/opportunity strikes) that's pretty good.

So, here we go...

Zombie Prom Date Knitters~Road Show
2nd Wednesday of the Month
January 9th

Bell's Brewery Eccentric Cafe!!!
355 E. Kalamazoo Ave.
Kalamazoo, MI - 49007
Phone: 269-382-5712

Ok, so that's the address for the General Store. The actual entrance for the Brewery is on Porter Street. Turn Right onto Porter st, left into the parking lot.

For those who drive by landmarks....Water Street Coffee Shop (the real one!) is on your left.

This is the part of downtown Kzoo where Water Street and Kalamazoo street make a V and Water street Coffee Shop is in the Middle of the two roads. Porter street is to your immediate right-so just know that stuff is over there and be on the look out for Porter. Get it Brewery, Porter?

Special Note: Stop at the Bank/ATM/Spouse's wallet/knock over a bum for his wine cash.

Did you get that? Bring cash. Bell's only takes CASH. The green stuff, no takey the credit. I'm serious, they have an atm machine in the lobby. It's just they way they brew.

Also, I can't stop you if you want to bring your spouse/loved one/hated one you live with/ whatever it's a bar, I don't care what you do. I'm going to knit, and drink me a brew and get some good fresh made grub. On a side note, if you are under the legal drinking age, you may get the boot at 8 or 9.

So, are you excited? Will we get kicked out of a bar? Will there be zombies? Will we be asked not to come back? Will 1000monkeysknit's husband really show up? Will the alternate universe? So many questions...we'll find out tomorrow!

you rawk. Am tempted to bail from work at noon one Wednesday so I can drive down in time to meet up with you guys!

Everyone else: I nominated Holly for "Most Original Username" Bobby award on ravelry... in case anyone wants to second me...

Carina said...

I'll be there come hell (possible) or high water (the lawn's flooded, and the pond's threatening to overflow, but that's what AWD is for). :)

Holly Bee said...

Me thinks AWD doesn't work if ye pond over comes ye vehicle.

Watch for Swamp Thing. Although he may just want a lift, I hear he carpools.

Shelly said...

OK, I'm once again lamenting the fact that I live in Ohio, too far for a Wednesday night trip to Kalamazoo. Feel bad for me??

Kristina B said...

I feel bad for you and me both, Shelly - I live in Toronto. Perhaps one time we'll charter a plane - I'll come pick you up and we'll go?

Holly Bee said...

Oh! It's ok friends! It's Zombie Prom Date-Road Show!

We'll all eventually end up at your door begging for free room and board. Not to mention drinks and snacks.
