Couldn't find an official thread for the 2012 International Motorcycle Show which will be in Novi January 6-8th so I figured I would make one. If you are attending and would like to purchase your ticket(s) ahead of time, online you can use promo code SH2012 to purchase a ticket for $10.00 ($9 for the ticket + a $1 processing fee). This is not a bad deal considering tickets at the door are usually $15. This is also cheaper than the promo code that comes on the postcards they send out which offer $11 tickets + the $1 processing fee. Not sure how long the SH2012 code will work for, I know I used it yesterday to buy my ticket and it worked just fine for me.

If you would like more information on the show itself you can find it here: http://www.motorcycleshows.com/

I say we meet up at Aubree's. I ate here last year and it was AMAZING!!

http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/19/1507177/restaurant/Detroit/Novi-Wixom/Aubrees-Pizzeria-Tavern-Northville

I think we should meet up before hand. Should be easier to do that than meet in the crazyness of the show. Agree?
