    Getting excited for this!

    Btw, just re-booked my hotel room, saving myself about $150 over 3 nights. Thursday night is just $103. I think that is close to the cheapest I've ever paid in Boston!

    Got a great deal on airfare out of Newark too: $98, with tax and fees $126. It's a little illusory, though: I had forgotten that pretty much every airline other than Southwest now charges a checked bag fee, so that's an extra $15 right off the bat. Oh well!

    CCM - $98 out of Newark? Which airline and where did you book? Was only finding commuter flights out of laguardia and that is just too much of a hassle.

    why bother for flights? if you could make it to NY mid town or down town area, take the bus there, around $20 per person each way:)

    We are driving...was just hoping to save some time!

    $20 each way for bus not so bad; train is more than double that!

    Well, for me, since I'll be leaving from Princeton, into NYC is about $20 round trip, plus about $40 round trip for the bus = $60.

    Bus takes 4.5 hours.
    Plane takes 1 hr, 10 mins.
    Now, that's a little bit of a lie, because I get to the airport ultra early, but even so....
    I personally *LOVE* taking Amtrak, but I think CCP would rather fly and spend less time en route.

    ***
    njdancegirl--We're flying Continental. They had a ton of different times out of Newark for that $98 price.

    I'm also flying to Boston the next week out of Baltimore on TransAir for a pretty good price, but not as good as $98.

    trying to decide if we shoudl go or not, Alex has been sice for over a week so we have not had real practices since he is not 100% recovered.. but it was supposed to be one of first warumpus for nationals etc, so feel it maybe be good to go and run through the routines in costume.. but should we show ourseloves in front of judges not 100%.... well that wont be first time.. not sure, guess it will be last min decision thursday.
