Icarus is coming to town from Ohio and I would like the rest of you to help me show her a fantastic MASSC time!

We threw around some dates to fit everyone's schedule but found that the dates were limited. It finally came down to June 27, 2009!

Where are we going you ask...

Official Yuengling Web Site: America's Oldest Brewery



Some of you were there before and the rest of us weren't. So... we're doing it again!

Friday hotel/dinner information:Hotel information:
Fairfield Inn & Suites Hazleton
A second option would be:
Ramada | Hazleton

Friday meet in the Fairfield hotel lobby at approx. 8:30 pm and walk across to Damon’s for food/drinks.
Damon's Grill

Saturday:

9:15 am @ Mahantongo Parking Garage (top floor)

Corner of Second and Mahantongo Sts
Pottsville, PA

There are four levels, we will park on the top level to keep all of the cars together. As you enter you will see arrows for Monthly and Permit parking that lead you to the top floor. I called Norma at Pottsville Parking Authority and she gave us the OK!

10:00 am Yuengling Brewery Tour

Yuengling - Pottsville
5th & Mahantongo Streets
Pottsville, PA 17901

There will be tours after ours and Yuengling has to remain on schedule; therefore, they cannot wait for you if you don't arrive on time so please leave your homes extra early!

Summer school on a Saturday? How dumb does a kid have to be to get sent to that?
The problem is getting Twitchy from Iowa to the east coast and back over a weekend.

I sure would like to join this run, but right now I have a family reunion I agreed to attend. If only this run were posted 15 days ago I could have pushed my family for a different date. :cryin:

That said, I can probably meet the group at the starting point and drop out at about 1030-1100 to return to Allentown to attend to my family obligation.

Will keep you posted!

Sorry :( we only started talking about it again last weekend. It would be great if you could at least make it for a little while!

Yeungling is getting a lot of press lately, as it will soon be the largest American beer brewer (Busch and Miller/Coors non-us now)

But this article was unique... Ya think the writer enjoys the beer?

Charleston Daily Mail - West Virginia News and Sports - State News - First truckload of Yuengling arriving soon 

"That's 38,400 bottles and cans of smooth, frothy brew waiting to be devoured by West Virginians..."

"..Proud Eagle Inc., serving as the distributor of the sweet nectar of the gods..."

This Run would Start in Allentown, a good central point for NJ, DE and PA members. We would meet at 9:00 AM in the parking lot of the office park located at the corner of N. Cedar Crest and Office Center Rd just off Rt 22.
This should spawn several feeder runs... specifically from South(DE, SJ, Philly) and East (north jersey, NY, LI).


But hmmm 9am in allentown... maybe hotel plans are in order? Allentown has to have cheap rooms??

Great news! I found out this morning that my parents' weekend home is about 1 hour from Allentown. I have delegated my mother to be navigator and we are going to do a pre-run probably the last weekend in May (30/31).

I will scope out the area and find places to eat and hotels, and should have them posted by 6/1 if that works for everyone.

I found this hotel via a quick search yesterday
Four Points by Sheraton Hotel & Suites Allentown Airport - Hotels.com - Deals & Discounts for Hotel Reservations from Luxury Hotels to Budget Accommodations

I will however make sure I closely investigate the hotel when I'm there. Nobody wants to sleep in a ghetto hotel!
