Spring Meeting

“We approached the case with an absolute blank mind, which is always an advantage.”
— Sherlock Holmes to Dr. Watson in “The Adventure of the Cardboard Box”

And we hope you’ll see the advantage of joining us for dinner on the first Sunday in May for the annual spring meeting of The Amateur Mendicant Society of Detroit – as part of the year-long celebration of the 65h anniversary of the society’s founding.

Sunday, May 1, 2011 at 1 p.m.
Bastone Brewery & Restaurant, 419 South Main at Fifth, Royal Oak
Restaurant phone: (248) 544-6250

Our assigned reading and brief Canonical discussion will concern “The Adventure of the Cardboard Box,” a case involving adultery, revenge and murder – so please be ready to lend an ear.

As an appetizer, Commissionaire Chris Music will offer a History Minute from the Mendicant archives.

And member Brad Schwartz will serve up the main course – a surprising presentation entitled “Two Suspicious Characters – Or in Defense of the Deerstalker” which firmly establishes the link between Holmes and the good doctor and a real-life crime that shocked the world.

There will also be the usual toasts plus prizes and more. We look forward to seeing you on May 1. Libations begin at 12:45 p.m. with the meeting and dinner beginning at 1 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
Robert Musial, Tantalus

To join us that afternoon, please mail your check for $25 per person by FRIDAY APRIL 22 to:

Edward F. Stein, A.M.S.
25015 Oakbrooke
Southfield, MI 48033

Entrée choices include fish & chips, pork, salmon, chicken or steak plus soup or salad, dessert and beverages. There will also be a cash bar featuring choices from Bastone’s microbrewery.
