      Luncheon cruises are a bit less and run between $37 to 55 per person. Kelly (dragonfly) had a great idea. Since a few of us are probally staying over Sat night, those who can't make it Sat maybe can meet up with some of us the next day for brunch or something.

        us out of towners should probally coordinate and try to stay at the same hotel. Worse comes to worse, the hotel would be a central location to meet up.

          Are people planning on bringing their kids? I ask because that could impact what we decide to do.

            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!
            Jamy this would be so wonderful if you came, and NY in June is wonderful. If you do decide to come let me know what hotel you will be staying at and E and I will book there. Oh it would be so much fun if you and Will, Karen and Jay were all there, you guys are my first choice of peeps to hang with. Oh the damage we could do, hehe.

            What if we did the cruise in the afternoon so that if some want to meet up with us later for dinner and partying that is possible.

            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.
            I love the idea of the cruise, it is a good place to get to know one another. I am up for the whole shebang or just the cruise and dinner somewhere else, maybe Glenda, or Jen can suggest a place. The advantage I see to doing the short cruise is it allows others to join us later on if they can't make it early, like Carly, and maybe Glenda, but if no one is joining us later I like the idea of dinner and dancing on the harbour. How many would be spending the nite? We have to, can't head back to T.O after a nite of fun, so we will be doing brunch for sure so anyone who can't make it to the Sat. gathering maybe you could join E and I for brunch?

            Keep me posted Everton and I are in for sure!
            Jay are you and Karen going to stay in the city for the nite?

              The lunch cruise sounds good to me also.

                  As much as meeting you and Karen was the hi-lite of Liams summer last year, ahhh I think this time he will pass on the pleasure a bdw meetup would bring to this 5 year old!

                  Hell Jason I think crawling the bars in NY city, something I am hoping to have the pleasure of doing, among other things, would be severely dampened by the presence of the rugrat. Mommy and Daddy want to play
