Friday huh... at this point I'd say there is a very good chance I'd be coming down for it! Woohoo! But this time, if you see me walking around with the big barrel-o-tonga hung off my back, stop me and be sure I've eaten something! And cherries from the fruit guy don't count!

Days Inn in Hicksville is about 15 min away, kinda run down but good enough and relatively cheap. Hmmm, maybe I'll camp out. I missed JB@JB last year. Not missin' this year.....

There's no way that's only 5 miles to Jones Beach. Rockville Centre is just east of where I live and it's about 3 miles just to get to the parkway from my apartment. I'd say more like 10-12 miles.

If anyone else is looking, there's also a Holiday Inn Express on Sunrise Highway in Lynbrook, it's probably about a mile from the Best Western in RVC. I'm sure it's a lot more expensive, but there's a Marriott in Uniondale next to the Nassau Coliseum. It's right off the parkway so it's an easy trip to the beach, probably 10-15 minutes tops.

Folks, Best Western IS bookable. I called them directly and they said that they're having stonework done to the front facade - the guest rooms are not being touched at all - but because of the facade work, Best Western will not alllow bookings thru their website. If you call them directly, they will allow you to book the room and the reservation will count towards BW points.

Thanx Moe for making me call them.
A most mysterious calling harbour
So far, but yet, so near
Where I see the day
When my hair's full gray
and I finally...disappear. BUT NOT YET!!

100 Sunrise Highway. I think it used to be something else and was recently renovated.

So who wants to pick me up from Islip? :lol: :lol:
If you want an experience, go to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Life is short, live long!!

I'd rather be a wiseass than a dumbass.

OK, I think I know where it is. Used to be either the Gateway or the Diplomat if I'm not mistaken.
