Thanksgiving, 2016

Milwaukee, Wisconsin 







July 27, 2016

Hi everyone,

 I am pleased to announce that we have a confirmed a Thanksgiving dinner reservation with the Pfister, a historical Milwaukee hotel. The dinner will begin at 2:00 pm on November 24th. There will be about an hour of drinks, appetizers, and socializing at the beginning, and then the dinner part.

 The cost is $49.00 per person. There is a lower rate for children under 12. 

 The Pfister has also offered us a group rate at $139.00 per night for hotel rooms. There are a few other hotels in the area that can be booked at a slightly lower rate ($110ish), but I really think that the $139.00 for the Pfister is the best deal. You will not be able to book at this group rate after October 24, so I encourage you to book now. All you need to do is call the hotel and say that you are with the "Janson Family Thanksgiving Group," and they will give you that rate. Let me know if you have any trouble booking.

 Dear Jansons,

 Thanksgiving is fast approaching. I am really looking forward to it!

 This is just a reminder that you only have until about October 24 to make your reservation at the Pfister Hotel, in order to get the group rate of $139 per room. The phone number is 414) 273-8222 and the website is  Please let me know if you have any trouble booking.

 Of course the Thanksgiving dinner is on Thursday, but I am organizing several other fun Milwaukee activities for Friday and Saturday, with more details soon to come. If you have already booked a flight, it would be great if you could tell me the details so that I know when people are coming and going. Since I do not live in Milwaukee any more it is not likely that I will have a car with me, but I am happy to help you figure out transportation to and from the airport if you would like assistance. There is an Amtrak station at the Milwaukee airport that runs from the airport to downtown Milwaukee, less than a mile from the hotel. I think that lots of the locals use it to get to and from the airport, but there are taxis as well.

 Please let me know if you have any questions about any of this. I am happy to resend the original e-mail with all of the details if anyone needs it again. Just let me know.
