Escape To New York June 4, 2007!!

  • Well..here it is..about 2 months away from Glenn's show in New York City and I am BEYOND STOKED!!! :bouncer:

    I got my tickets, my older brother Pete wants to see Glenn as well. I haven't decided how I am getting up there; it is a toss up between the train and flying. It is a 7 hour drive from Churchville to Baldwin and between the gas and tolls it is actually cheaper to leave the Beastette (my 1986 Ford Escort) here ;)

    I am looking to come up Friday night or early Saturday and stay till Tuesday. Man, I have wanted to get back to NY for several years now (the last trip was in February 2002!) and I need a bagel fix bad!! I don't where I am going to stay yet; my brother's place is too small and I might look into staying in the city or nearby depending on the cost. So what better excuse to get "Back To The Crib" than to experience Glenn and his band live in a fabulous venue and the dynamite company of a similarly stoked group of GHCP's!! :thumbup:

    If I had the bread, I would make the trip to LA too, with a long weekend it would certainly be feasible! But hey, the Captain would NEVER turn down an opportunity to head back to the home turf! Lately, I have been flashing back a lot about the 28 years total that I lived there.....people bitch and moan about living there...but given the right opportunity and I would move back in a minute!

    So..who's planning on joining me for this unprecedented event??

    I am so jacked about this!!! :clapper:

  • Bill, i'll be flying in Sunday night so we could meet up Monday sometime pre-show. For security reasons I cant say what flight as i understand an Axe Woman :axe: by the name of Grace :hi2: hangs around the airport looking for anyone with connections to Glenn! :lol:

    Flying back to the UK on Tuesday afternoon.

  • Bill,
    My schedule has me in New York from Sunday morning through the next weekend. Staying on LI Sunday, then NYC Monday and Tuesday. Have a suite on 39th Street, so maybe a little party will be in the offing after the gig. Tuesday night to Shea for Mets/Phils game, and then back to LI to visit Mom. If you are in city on Tuesday we can do something, which, asx it is NYC, will probably revolve around food !!!

    Looking forward to the meet you and Wolfy and Grace if she is taking here meds :D
    See you all there.

  • I'll be there. I live about 1-1/2 hours away so that's no problem.

    I would love to meet up with all the people from this board that are going. And yes a pre and post party would be awesome!

    I know I'll be into it in any case as it is my birthday on the 4th!

    But no worries there as I am Forever Young :D

  • I'll be there ...
