You're about to get an email with some suggestions.
Hey Ted, or anyone else, where would be a fun, inexpensive, cool, place to stay in N. O.
N.O. from Detroit is 229.00 Non stop RT on
AirTran from the DC area is $99 each way departing on 1 March and returning on 5 March.
this sounds interesting, should we e-mail the RSVP to you or just post it here?
I've never been to N.O. ... this would be a fine
occassion to do so... *sip*
well, it's official. me and my other half will be in NO from 3/1 to 3/5. just got my bid accepted on priceline for 200 bucks a ticket (total for both tickets with taxes and such came to $470.40, round trip only one stopover each way), and now am just waiting to hear back from the gentleman I spoke with last night about staying at his B&B. woohoo!
March 3 is the Saturday following Mardi Gras (Tues). That Saturday should be very quiet by New Orleans standards. I just checked several different fares, and they are not any higher than any other weeks for that month, nor are they higher than normal. I suggest using www.expedia.com, and flying on either Thursday or Friday and Monday or Tuesday for best fares. To everyone who has submitted an email confirmation, you will receive a confirmation message very soon.
It's not Mardi Gras ... Mardi Gras is Feb. 27th, and the celebrations are the week *before* that. It is, however, New Orleans peak season because the weather is so infernal during the summer.
So never fear! Most of the evil swarms of insane drunk guys will be gone.
I know, I'm traveling 3 weeks before mardi gras & two weeks after, and I get the same thing on Amtrak.
I went online to check airline rates for this weekend. Kind of steep due to Mardi Gras. Is this the intention to have this meeting during Mardi Gras? I really want to go but don't want to get beat up on air fare for Mardi Gras. Is this the concrete date?
Thanks for the invite and info Ted.
