It’s Montréal Monday!

Montréal will be the host city of the 110th AAA Annual Meeting! Montréal is the city with the largest number of restaurants per resident in all of North America. In the city’s tourist districts, there is an average of 64.9 restaurants per square kilometer (160 per square mile). Montréalers spend more than 12% of their income on food and beverages.

With those factoids, here’s your Montréal Monday trivia question:
During last year’s AAA Annual Meeting in New Orleans, how much money did AAA members spend on coffee?
Keep in mind that there were more than 6,000 meeting attendees over the course of five days. So sales will exceed $6,000 but are less than $20,000.

Understanding that our blog readers may prefer an evening cup of joe, please submit your answer as a comment to this post by 11:59 p.m. EST today (Monday, April 4) to be eligible to win. Two lucky winners will receive a coffee mug from our new AAA Café Press shop.

Remember, now is the time to renew your membership, complete your meeting registration and submit your proposal. The proposal deadline is April 15, 2011 at 5:00 p.m. EST.

  1. I stood in a coffee line; must be the high-end, $18,000.

  2. $11,500!

  3. $18,250

  4. Hmmm, how about $17,500?

  5. $12,800

  6. Let’s go 3/4 through the scale and say $16,500.

  7. $19,000.

  8. $14,100

  9. I’ll try $15,600

  10. $19,500

  11. I hope you got some good deals! $14,567

  12. I will guess $17, 015. But, if that is even in the ballpark, it is astonishing to consider.

  13. Unos 16800 $ en una taza de café

  14. I will guess $18,120

  15. $18,950

    That would be enough money to fund my dissertation research.

  16. I’ll say it was $17,200.

  17. Thanks for playing Montréal Monday! Last year, AAA members spent $17,525.86 on coffee alone during the Annual Meeting in New Orleans.

    Congratulations to Erik and Jason K.!
