Okay here's the skinny for me guys. I'll be there on the 3rd and staying until the 13th. No tournament for me as I've been enjoying my retirement and getting fat and lazy. (Heh I've been teaching from behind my desk as I play with my daughter on the computer... www.nickjr.com.

ok so i'm looking at planning my travel and hotel for this, and this is what i am looking at:
chinatown bus nyc to boston -> T to commuter Rail -> commuter rail to brandeis/roberts station
this is where i need help. i am planning on staying at the holiday inn express on 385 winter st, as it is the cheapest by far of the local hotels) however i have no idea how i am going to get there from the commuter rail (and then get to the throwdown location the next morning.) mapquest says it is 6 miles so seems a little far to walk with all my stuff on my back.
is there a bus? are there taxis? do i have to call a cab from there? if so does anyone have the number of a local cab company?
thanks in advance, and looking forward to meeting you all. looks like at least 2 other guys from my school are coming to compete in the BJJ tournament, and maybe 1 of them will come for the throwdown as well."Face punches are an essential character building part of a martial art.

All throwdown participants need to either have knee pads or wear gi pants or other swishy type leggin's cuz the Brandeis mats are gawd awful. No ****, last year I had horrendous burns from the knees down.Secret moves such as hitting a thing with your hand and hitting a thing with your leg have been stolen and degenerated by arts like karate, boxing, muay-thai, Kung-fu, and basketball. -Epicurious
