Hey girls,

The draft at the Stumble Inn was awesome. The private room was amazing and easily held the 25 people that came to the draft. 15 to draft and 10 to party. The table layout was just what we needed. The appetizers and entrees were great and the booze kept flowing. Our server was amazing we never had an empty drink and were served literally within 1 minute of ordering. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and we will be back next year. Once the draft was over the music was turned up and we still had 2 hours of open bar left. Then after that we quite literally stumbled in to the Stumble Inn.

Hair of the Dog wound up being the perfect venue for our fantasy football live draft – more than enough space, food and booze.  Staff was accomodating and service was terrific throughout the four hour open bar. Actually thought it was really nicely done so thank you for organizing.

Christine, Kate, Niki and Brittany,

The event was a blast.  Everybody in the FF league was psyched with how it went and it went as expected / smooth sailing.  Honestly, not a lot of “constructive feedback” because we were many games of beer pong, flip cup and general consumption in… you made a group of 10 happy, many of whom don’t get a lot of day time “nights out” anymore.   See you next year, though there was a petition for Las Vegas! 



Christine, Kate, Niki & Cortney,

I apologize for the tardiness of my response. I wanted to let you know that the event was a total success (I must admit I’m hesitant to label a fantasy football draft an event, nevertheless).

The East Wing at the Stumble Inn met every expectation and exceeded even more. Perhaps most importantly, the waiting staff assigned to serve us was informative, friendly, and accommodating (particularly when dealing with the vegetarian members of our group).

I wanted to extend my thanks to your staff and those at the Stumble Inn. Without hesitation, I will certainly be using Eat, Drink & Be Merry again.




Hello, the party went extremely well. The people at the Gin Mill were helpful and courteous. The room was ready to go when we showed up and there were no problems throughout the evening. I have a feeling I will be reaching out to next year since we all had such a good time.

Thank you!

Fantasy Football Draft

September 13, 2011

Thanks- 7th year with EDBM and now my other league just started with you (at Gin Mill Speakeasy room on 9/7).

Love the space at 13th Step, we will take it again.  Manager (forgetting his name right now) and bartender (Sky) were terrific.  Please let them know we appreciate their professionalism, great attitude and help.  Really cool and accommodating to us.  Guys in the league will probably rent room for some Michigan games this year.



Thanks again for your help in setting this up. We really appreciated the space and the deal we received. Everything worked out perfect from the food to the drinks to the space to the service. Not a single complaint from top to bottom. Everyone in attendance felt the night was a success.

I will definitely come back for anything else I am looking to plan.

Thank you again,


Our event went flawlessly.  As this is our fifth year with ED&BM, you really have it down to a science.  We look forward to seeing you again next year.

The party went perfectly, the staff was great, we’ll be here every year.

Would it be the same deal if we got everyone together again during the year? $40 a head for 4-hour open bar and an entree each? We were thinking of trying to reserve the room for a random Sunday in the Summer or Tuesday July 15th.

Everything was great! Travis, our bartender really hustled and did a great job for us.

Thanks for another successful fantasy football draft (5 years with you guys, and counting)!

Hello all-

Just wanted to take the time to provide some feedback (which I don’t normally do) because we had such a great experience at our fantasy draft.

The space couldn’t of been more perfect.  We had an appropriate size table set up to accomodate our group, the televisions put on to the appropriate stations, and our every need was catered to.

The only thing better than the room was our waitress- she very friendly, helpful, and professional.  She kept our pitchers full the entire evening and did a wonderful job at managing our at times rowdy group.  Even when the draft was over, we were given time to finish our drinks and take our time leaving the room.  We couldn’t of been more pleased.

The feedback I got from everyone in our league was that they had a phenomenal time.  We’ve been doing drafts for a number of years (at a different bar every year) and I think this was the best one yet.

My only complaint would be all the pitchers and shots I did during the draft (and especially afterwards next door) and the fact that I have very little recollection of the latter part of the evening.  Oh and I somehow misplaced my blackberry.  But I can hardly blame you guys for that.


Thanks again for helping us have a great party.



Everything went great. The space and service was perfect.
