Unchanged from last year. Each MetroCard swipe deducts $2.25 with a free bus/SIR/Roosevelt Island tram transfer within 2 hours. SingleRide tickets are $2.50, but avoid buying those.

Are there any weekend passes of stuff like that?

No. One-day fun passes (where you could get as many rides as you wanted in a single day except for express buses) used to exist, but they're no longer around. Unlimited weekly and monthly passes are still around though, but I doubt most people are staying here that long. I have a monthly pass but only because I live here. The best you can do is estimate the amount of rides you'll need and get a regular pay-per-ride card.

I guess the passes act as a reloadable card?

This is a heads up, that im gonna be changing up some stuff on the hub page. The karaoke shit will likely move to friday. Its too tight of a timeline to get out of coney island by 5. that and tom is coming out on friday as well so yeah. I'll also be moving the meet on friday later in the day cause im gonna wait for the boss and check-in to my room and such. I'll send a new mass pm and edit the hub page over the weekend. That is all.

That's unofficial...sort that out with Symbol. I don't think everyone's going to make it there.

there will be no poker games at my place... i find poker to be boring and i guarantee nobody will want to put up enough money to hold my interest in a game... plus i dont gamble with minors... hell i dont gamble at all... and also .. ITS NY FIKKIN CITY... wouldnt you rather be out somewhere doing something then sitting in my place staring at cards?

I know a place where a few of us guys could play poker on friday night if the events night become 21+ It's a few blocks away from penn station. There's a freeroll tournament every friday - however, at least bring $10 to tip the dealer if you please to do so

I'd rather be consuming ungodly amounts of alcohol with Symbol like last year.

I'd rather stick with the 21+ crowd on Friday night to be honest...

Karaoke room for the meet is now officially booked. $15/person once again, on May 4th, from 4:30 to 8, and the room is designed to accommodate at least 15 people. I'll probably take everyone there from the main concourse at Grand Central (under the New Haven Line timetable/near the Apple store/in front of the defunct ticket counters). Last year we had 18 people show up and the year before that, more than 30. For anyone that wants to go to the karaoke bar directly due to work or other things before then and can't meet at Grand Central, the address is:

304 East 48th Street
New York, NY 10017

Oh yeah...forgot to mention--we'll be at that part of Grand Central from 3-4 PM. I can't wait past 4 because it's important to make sure we're not late. Make sure you're there and call or text me if you have any problems (PM me if you need my contact info).

kk. I'll probably skip my last class (gym) and hop on a train to the city around 2.

All righty...there's a Penn Station bound train that should depart from Rockville Centre at around 2:11 PM on Friday, so I imagine that's what you'll take.

awesome idea.

another note: I won $50 in poker today so I now have sufficient funds for traveling around NYC.

So as of know looks like a relativily com weekend. 10 day Forecast

of course it is a city so, suggest you keep an eye on the forecast since rain thus far is 10% likely. Just a friendly update of the soon to be weather this coming weekend.
