MoCCA?

Previous Entry MoCCA? Mar. 31st, 2008 @ 03:29 pm Next Entry
I definitely want to go to MoCCA this year! But I haven't made any plans AT ALL yet...

I just had a job interview at GameStop  and forgot to ask how much I'll have to wait to know if I get the job or how soon can I take some days off...

But I'm hoping that by the time I've made my plans and I'm ready to buy all the tickets and stuff I will know if I got the job and if I can go on vacation or not?



So... Does anybody know some decent-ish hotel in the Manhattan area or close?  What places do you suggest I visit while I'm there? I don't think I'll wander to far away from the hotel, but I do know I want to go to Avenue Q while I'm there if I can!

I need to know what I'll do while I'm there to know how many days I'll need to stay.. Any suggestions are welcome! ^_^;

I assume I'll visit a comic shop and maybe an old game store? I'm a geek, I don't do tourism well... XP

Anyway, wish me luck with the job thing, and I wish me ever more luck with MoCCA! :3

I'd offer crash space at mine but I've already got Mal crashing with me and its going to be tight with the two of us as is. Have a look on the new york craigs list you might find a good holiday deal. I'm heading to new york for the summer but Mal is just coming for MoCCA and has booked flights for thursday to Monday and plans to squesh all the sight seeing into those days - we'll be doing all the comic shops and what not on Friday if you want to tag along with us [thou understand if you want to head off by yourself]

I wouldn't mind going comic shopping with the both of you at all! I just hope I won't go over my weight limit, after the UK Thing, Gosh! comics and Forbidden Planet I had bought just enough go a few grams over the limit... Fortunately they didn't fine me! ^_^;

If you want cheap accomodations, look up NYC Youth Hostels, and also the YMCA in Times Square. Some of my friends stay there every year for MoCCA, and it's way cheaper than staying in a hotel! Hotels tend to run about $200 a night during the high season.

And here is a hostel I've stayed at. Not TOO far from where MoCCA is held, and near some nice neighborhoods as well as subways: http://www.chelseahostel.com/

Thanks! I'll take note of these hostels!

When I hear youth hostel, I keep thinking they only accept minors... ^^;
