    This being a holiday weekend and all, flights may be expensive for some people living out in BFE.

    I checked from ATL and they're pretty cheap. <$200.
    In summation your argument denotes a lack of intellectual honesty on your part. It is my contention that this matter would best be solved with fisticuffs. I believe I will be victorious in this regard.

        Sunday or Saturday, for me Monday must be dedicatwed to recovery and getting back in time for work on Tuesday.

        Also, having learned fromt eh last throwdown, no way in HELL am I flying in the wee hours of the morn! I'm still sorry about that, Ant.

        Considering I'm in Silver Spring MD, Amtrack may be the way to go..... unless of course Errant will actually go to this year's mega and we arrange a driving situation.

        I mean, ya know, last year I tried to get people from this area to go to Atlanta, but you were all a bunch of cheap bastards and I went alone,b ut this being in NYC, which we can drive to in a few hours.... I mean, if none of you show up I claim the right to kick you square in the nuts when I get back.

          Are you kidding me? They love riots so much, the NYPD holds the distinction of the first known incidence of a police riot (1857) and also the most recent one (1988) in the United States.

          Worst comes to worst, I'll go get you.

          I'll even let you drive a bit on the way there and back. :smile:

            Sunday is definitely the day of choice. I am not sure we can schedule the mat space necessary any other day.

                      So it's Sunday. Suggestions on cheap hotels close to the venue?

                        Cheap hotels close to Times Square? Good luck with that one.

                        Your best bet would be to get a hotel in Secaucus; then you can take the train from Secaucus Junction. It's only about 12 minutes into NY Penn, and the Fighthouse is walking distance from there.

                          The weird, groovy and not too expensive (by NYC standards) Gershwin Hotel is near the Fight House.

                            There's no point in staying in Times Square anyway. They replaced all the hookers, pimps, purse-snatchers, porn shops, peep-shows and pawn-shops that sell brass-knuckles and switchblades with mickey mouse, theme restaurants and stupid looking fat people with "I Love New York" t-shits.
                            Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
                            and remember what peace there may be in silence.
                            As far as possible, without surrender,
                            be on good terms with all persons.
                            Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
                            and listen to others,
                            even to the dull and ignorant;
                            they too have their story.

                              I'm going to be there the weekend of the 16th-22nd.

                              God damn it.

                                Perhaps if we get a date in the 24th through the 26th, I might be able to extend my stay.
