    Do we have an update for this get together? I don't want it to fall thru the cracks.

      I was just gathering some info for this today. It is getting relatively close to June already. Time really does fly!

      So to review for everyone:

      Saturday June 7th. NYC . Early afternoon meet up.

      Some people have mentioned staying at a hotel in the city as well and possibly doing brunch on Sunday.

      The idea Karen and I had for Saturday was a harbor cruise around Manhattan. We thought this would be fun for the people who have never been to NYC as well as us veterans of the city. There are some links below that Karen found for reasonably priced cruises. Take a look at them and we can all start to decide on what we want to do. The cruise thing is far from set in stone though. While we think it could be fun, there are a million different things we could all do together.

      So post up your thoughts and ideas everyone.

      New York and New Jersey Dining Cruises | Spirit Cruises

      Dinner and Dance Spirit and Bateaux Cruises around Manhattan, New York City - see all attractions from Bateaux and Spirit Cruises.

      Lady Liberty Cruises - New York Dinner Cruises and Long Island Dinner Cruises

        Do you know Will and I were seriously considering making this our anniversary trip? He's wanted to go to NYC at least since he started web-slinging on the Spiderman video game, and I've always wanted to go to little Italy to see my people! The timing of your meet-up was perfect for us.

        We already have time off and nothing booked yet...probably going to end up back in PV for sentimental value, but just wanted you to know how special you East-coasters are that we considered spending our anniversary with you.

        Whenever we make it there we hope to see whoever is free!

          Do you guys have a time figured out? I wasn't originally committing to this b/c I wasn't sure if we would have the time. Matt works on Saturdays, so I was wondering if the timing would work. We are a few hours from NYC, so is the meetup for Saturday evening?

            That would be so awesome if you guys could make it Jamy. If not for the meet-up, we would definitely come down to the city when you guys are there to say hi.

                Here's what I found on a couple of those sites:

                Spirit: $79 + taxes and fees, food and soft drinks included, alcohol extra.

                Liberty: $79 + taxes and fees. Nothing included. For anadditional $26 food and alcohol is included.

                  It depends. If we all wanted to do a cruise with a meal and all that jazz it would be around $100 and up per person. Some are a little less.

                  If we just did a standard cruise around Manhattan (around the lower half where everything is anyway) it can be as little as $25 per person.

                  Those prices are approximate and from memory. I could be a little off. Actually, I am a little off, but that's besides the point.

                  The standard cruises run on frequent schedules and only take an hour or two. If we did one of those we could always go to a restaurant/bar afterwards and hang out.

                  If nobody is feeling the cruise or if there are people that get sea-sick, we can surely find something to do in NYC.

                  Some other ideas.. museums, Empire State Building, Central Park picnic, pub crawl, etc.

                    This link should give everyone a good idea of what's available: New York Boat Tours and Sightseeing Cruises in New York City
