If you're good the 20th show up, I;m sure the Niketalk dudes don't care. LaGuardia Community College at 10am.

Hotels are dumb expensive in NY, car rentals too, hell everything is! I'm thinking about staying in a hostel or doing the rent a room thing.

I don't even like rap music anymore, but I might try to get tickets to 106 and Park or something too since I'll have all day Monday too

All this is true, but when you're in NYC, you don't go to chain restaurants you can go to anywhere else. You have to try to find something that you can't find anywhere else. I have a 5 guys withing walking distance from where I live so I just don't think it's a place you go when you're visiting the city.

If you're into eating, which was all I did last summer in NYC, I remember some places off the top of my head.

The New York City Hot Dog Company - i got a 1/4lb hot dog soaked in beer
Shake Shack - it's at Madison Square (not MSG), very pricey burger, but very good, if you don't like the burger you'll at least like the shake
Peanut Butter and Co. - sells...peanut butter, and all kinds of peanut butter sandwiches, I had the Elvis (peanut butter+banana+bacon)
Otafuku - unpretentious japanese snack-size food lol, not sure if it's your thing but i like those octopus balls (takoyaki)
Ray's Pizza - in Times Square, i liked their sicilian square slice

check out yelp.com if you need directions, and yes i'd go with hostels (broke student), book early and save.

Off-topic but i wish they bring the southern style chicken at mickey d to canada.

June 20, LaGuardia Community College, 11am. I might even stay at one of the hostels in the YMCAs so I can hoop and workout the entire time I'm not out doing something touristy

actually you're right, it's the 20th which is the Saturday. I got my dates off because I'm leaving the 19th (Fri) out of Dallas. So, see you there? Another ISHiot pmed me and said he'll come too, said he's 6'3.
