    Cars & Coffee - K-Zoo

    Here is the link to the original thread
    http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?t=1180102

    Quick copy/paste-
    EDIT: OFFICIAL EMAIL CONTACT FOR MEET: kzoocarsncoffee@yahoo.com
    Please use this email if you do not frequent this forum for updates, and to preregister for the event (there will be benefits to doing so, but it is not required)

    Hey, anybody in the Kalamazoo area: Cars and offee morning meet, starting Saturday, April 25th it gets warmed up this spring. We're aiming to make it a really open format as far as what type/brand/year of cars (think Woodward Autozone meet, if you've ever been to that) If this takes off it would be kinda cool to alternate time of day / location...1 weekend = coffeeshop, next weekend = lunch somewhere, next weekend drive-in rootbeer stand + cruise? Should be fun, just gotta round up all the kalamazoo area entusiasts!

    Official location right now is Water Street Coffee Joint, downtown Kalamazoo (The City of Kalamazoo is still going through necessary paperwork/approvals, but it doesn't sound like we'll encounter any issues). We will be closing E. Water street between N. Pitcher St. and E. Kalamazoo Ave. (Water Street Coffee Joint is located at 390 E. Water Street).

    We do have a backup location just in case. (492 Romence Rd., Portage, MI) There is a Starbuck's coffee, Los Amigo's Mexican restaurant, CiCi's pizza, ice cream, Jet's pizza in the plaza, and a shopping mall across the street

    update!

    Details have changed a bit, but here is the FINAL location:
    Bilbo's Pizza / Brewery
    6202 South Westnedge Avenue
    Portage, MI 49002
    (269) 323-8855
    http://www.bilbospizza.com

    Bilbo's is located in a large shopping plaza, and across a parking area from Bilbo's is a Barnes and Noble / Starbuck's. Also, right across Milham Ave is a Panera Bread. (see map) We'll meet around 9AM and park in Bilbo's parking area (see map). (I'll probably arrive between 8-3:30) Panera opens at 6AM, Starbuck's opens at 9AM, and Bilbo's opens at 11AM.
    Bilbo's will be closing off the bar area of their restaurant for our use for a few hours, starting at 11AM.
    For anyone who hasn't had Bilbo's pizza, it's delicious, worth a trip!
    Also, their drink menu isn't on their website so here it is (although I think things get changed around pretty frequently)

    Are you a member of R3V or Bf.c, or acquainted with Ed (egk2)? I'm hoping to hook up with him and other SE Michigan owners to make the run together.
