Hi everyone! Just wondering if any of you boardies stay down in NYC for the New Years show, and if so, where do you usually stay? The hotel the hubby and I normally stay at is sold out right now, so we were just looking for any thoughts or suggestions. Thanx!!

The Milburn (Drysdale) is a nice hotel and it's just around the corner from The Beacon.

But the "The hotel the hubby and I normally stay at is sold out right now," makes me think otherwise.

Actually we waited for some good seats to open up and tipped off friend so friend could do the same. :winkydink:


Ticket drop happened a lot earlier than I expected it to.

If you even think you MIGHT go to these shows, cancelable hotel reservations should be made well in advance.

Or maybe life was distracting and making hotel reservations fell through the cracks.

(I do not have a hotel reserved for Brooklyn this weekend either.)

Yes, JBetty we should have made ressies...... But I am such a last minute person that I just forgot (tee hee)
Thanks Feck for having my back on all the assumptions of when I got the tickets! Truthfully, it was when they went on sale.
Hope everyone enjoys this amazing show!

i'll be at dive 75 for some 1/2 price micro brews pre show + christmas cookies to share.
i guess it's better that i remembered the christmas cookies and left the ear plugs.
i got a new set of ear plugs at lunch.

i think i'll stay at 5,999 until next year.

be nice, have fun, stay safe

Argh!! Wish I read this thread Yesterday for some Christmas cookies!!
Feck--did you go both nights? 12/30s set list seems awesome!
JBetty-- no we were only able to escape from our midget for 1 night. What did you think of last nights show? It was a little too mellow at some points for me, maybe thats just the booze talking though.
Curious on other opinions.

I thought both nights were stellar! :jamguy:
Loved the 2nd set on NYE, even though there was no King Kong. :monkey:
Sister Sparrow and The Dirty Birds were a great opener the first night.
Met up with a couple of the band members in the lobby during set break - Arleigh looks like she's about 15 years old.

Very true. Some of my favorite Mule shows have been on 12/30. The tributes on MYE have almost always been great, bu tthe rest of the show never seems to live up to the NYE hype. Doesn't stop me from going to both though! :jamguy:
