Frankenmuth of course...If you don't want to drive there (but why wouldn't you when you can eat chicken) you could always call one of the stores listed on the website, and see if they will fed ex them..I am sure just about every gift shop has them...

http://www.frankenmuth.org/

If you do go they even have a decent brewpub in town, if not more, I can't recall.

I think this the first thread of this discourse I've read on this forum... Kudos to you sir! Ed might be able to help you.

thx revvy, I will check that out next time i go up there, maybe in october, but not in time for this friday. i havent found any online hats from your link yet

I may not be able to convince SWMBO to drive two hours each way on a weeknight, so looks like I will need to order online unless metro detroit has one for sale.

I think Revvy was suggesting getting off the computer and using a telephone to literally talk to someone at any of the variety of specialty shops in town - his link is a step in the right direction to get said shops phone numbers!!

I unplugged from the web and used the phone and frankenmuth did not have my size so I ordered from German dirndls, lederhosen, beer steins, & bavarian clothing @ Ernst Licht Embroidery & Imports

they promised I would get it in time for friday.
