A Winter's Respite in Rochester: Meadow Brook Hall and Meadow Brook Theatre
In early March, we long for a day spent with friends letting our eyes wander over beautiful surroundings, sharing a meal, and laughing through the afternoon. A Winter’s Respite offers a tour and lunch at Meadow Brook Hall in nearby Rochester, MI., followed by The Spitfire Grill, an afternoon delight at the Meadow Brook Theatre. A National Historic Landmark, Meadow Brook Hall is the historic home built by Matilda Dodge Wilson, widow of automobile pioneer John Dodge, and her second husband, lumber broker Alfred Wilson. Constructed between 1926 and 1929, for $4 million, the 110-room, 88,000 square foot mansion represents one of the finest examples of Tudor-revival architecture in America. The expansive collection includes family archives and original furnishing. After lunch in the estate’s dining room, we will travel a short distance by bus to the Meadow Brook Theatre for an afternoon at The Spitfire Grill where efforts to raffle off the only eatery in town start things popping! http://www.mbtheatre.com/the-spitfire-grill. There are 19 rows in the theater on a slope to the stage area. Please call Lisa Barton (761-2540) with any questions or concerns about participating. Bus boarding will begins at 8:30 a.m. to ensure a departure at 9:00 a.m. Cost of this trip includes lunch, snacks, gratuities, tour, and theater tickets. No refunds without replacements inside 30 days of trip departure.
