Spring Meeting Details

“It is an old maxim of mine that when you have excluded the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable must be the truth."                                
- Sherlock Holmes in the Adventure of the Beryl Coronet

And it is most assuredly the truth that we want you to join us for a fine afternoon of comestibles and conviviality at the spring meeting of the Amateur Mendicant Society of Detroit.

Saturday, June 15, 2013 at 1 p.m.
Granite City Food & Brewery
699 W. Big Beaver Road, Troy, MI (next to the Top of Troy Building at I-75)
Restaurant phone: (248) 519-1040

Our assigned reading is "The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet" in which Holmes and Watson must restore a valuable crown to solve a mystery and save a banker and his son from ruin.

The afternoon’s presenter will be Jerry Alvin on “The Resurrection of the Amateur Mendicant Society,” ably assisted by Ezekiah Hopkins, and
other members of the “class of 1975.”

We’ll also have the presentation of the annual Beggar’s Cup award for Sherlockian scholarship plus the usual toasts, prizes and more. We hope to see you on June 15th!

To join us, please mail your check for $26 per person by MONDAY, JUNE 10th to:

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

The menu includes your choice of grilled sirloin, walleye, chicken Marsala (all with garlic mashed potatoes) or chicken asparagus linguine; French onion or cheddar ale soup; Caesar or house salad and chocolate mousse. As always, there will be a cash bar.

“Come at once if convenient … if inconvenient, come all the same.”
