Have a friend who is picking up my ticket along with that of hers and her husband's. Look for Mr. and Mrs. Xris amongst the crew, if there are any Interferencers going to be amongst the crowd at BB Kings. I will make certain that the Zootopians are outfitted with some kind of obvious marker. (We'll all wear RED Armani sunglasses??? )

Anyhow, I will definitely be mixing it in with all of you. This is going to be one big U2 party!
from my experience with BB King's...

they book an early show. which is stupid, but they do. so the early show gets out around 10ish, at which point there's a mad rush to get the first band's gear off and the next band, in this case UF, on the stage and soundchecked. the quicker this all gets done, the quicker the doors open. the later the first band plays and the slower they are getting their stuff off, the later the doors open.

i would highly doubt the doors will open at 10:30. closer to 11 seems to be about right. it is first come first serve, but it's not exactly a huge venue so even if you're at the back of the floor you're still not that far away.

and yes, the st. patrick's show traditionaly sells out.

Thanks much, Headache! Maybe it's a good thing Xris is buying the ticks now! ULP!! Never been to BB King's in Manhattan..yet! I guess we can anticipate chaos to reign...er, ever-so-briefly!

For those of you who have done this before; where do you stay? I noticed that places near bb kings are pricey in the theater district.. Any suggestions?? If I can find a decently priced hotel, I am dragging hubby and joining in!!!

Hostelling is a good way to save bucks! Ever check out Hostelling International? $35 a night, but it is out there on Amsterdam Avenue, close to the Central Park area. There are other hostels, as well.

new york hotels are expensive. you can find decent deals here and there, but it's rare.

if you're really tight for cash, try the hotels around the airports... JFK & Newark. fairly easy mass transit options to get there. it'll take longer, you'll have to sit on a train for 20-30 minutes, but it'll be significantly less expensive (unless you take a cab back to the hotels, which if you do that, you might as well just spend the extra money for a hotel in manhattan).

there's hotels in jersey city that are a little less expensive than manhattan... path train from WTC one stop to jersey city, short 5 minute walk (or less) to the hotels.

hostels? not my bag, but if that's what you're into, go nuts.

other than that? yea... new york is pricey.

Thanks to All for the information. I wouldn't mind spending extra to see the City and meet all of you. I have never stayed in the City myself, 25-30 yrs ago was the last time I spent a weekend in NYC and that was with family...so I really appreciate your feedback. It will give me a start, anyway...
I was even thinking of what Headache in a Suitcase mentioned about at least looking into staying on the Jersey side and taking the train in... Have you ever done that?? Do you think it is wise to travel back and forth that way (after the bars close) (do they run all night?)?? or do you think it is just better to spend the extra and stay in Manhattan? You have to understand, I am from the Mountains ....not used to trains and such...buses, yeah, take them to NYC from here.... that is about it!

...thanks, you guys, so much!!

path trains run to jersey city all night.

trains to long island and the airports run all night as well but with significant gaps between trains after 2am.

bars close at 4.
