Fall Meeting

“Come, friend Watson – the curtain rings up for the last act.”
— Sherlock Holmes, “The Adventure of the Second Stain”

You are cordially invited to the Fall 2007 meeting of The Amateur Mendicant Society of Detroit – a rare double bill that will feature a meal-and-meeting PLUS (if desired) an outing to Meadow Brook Theatre to see the play “Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure” by Stephen Dietz.

400 Water Street, Rochester, MI
(2 blocks east of downtown Rochester)
Restaurant phone: (248) 650-5080
Libations: 3:30 p.m.; dinner 4 p.m.

Meadowbrook Theatre

$18 per person for the meeting – OR $30 per person for the meeting AND special theater package!

To commemorate our visit to Oakland University, the brief Canonical story discussion will concern “The Adventure of the Three Students,” with its tale of lecturer Hilton Soames and a possible cheating scandal.

The Meadow Brook production marks the first Michigan performance of this award-winning play. Based on plays by Arthur Conan Doyle and actor William Gillette, this classic mystery mixes Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, Irene Adler, Professor Moriarty AND a climax at the Reichenbach Falls – all on one stage!

Payment deadline for the $30 per person meeting-and-theater package is Friday, Sept. 21.
Dinner includes your choice on Oct. 14 of Scallop & Shrimp Pasta, Beer Battered Fish & Chips, Sesame Crusted Chicken, Brewmaster’s Shepherd’s Pie OR Honey-Peppered Salmon. Dessert will be provided. There will be a cash bar.

Hello there. I hope this is an appropriate place to ask. I just discovered this blog while looking up Sherlock Holmes Societies in Michigan. I was wondering how one would go about joining this society?

Oh dear. I was told at another meeting that the deadline for the meeting and play was the 25th and upon checking this site for the address to send my check, I see that it was the 21st. Is everything finalized already? If so, I suppose I will have to cancel my check and buy my tickets to the play separately.
