    Maybe a bit early to start talking about & asking questions, but already getting psyched up!

    Previous thread indicated that it will be happening this year on May 30 / 31st and that it was locked in. Hoping this is the case as I already locked in four rooms on Priceline in downtown Boston for that weekend.

    And a word of caution to those who are price sensitive to hotels...Last year, I booked hotels at this time and got a great place in Cambridge through Hotwire at $95 / night. Same place this year is going for >$200 and cheapest decent places I could find (we like to stay downtown) was $150 / night on Hotwire. In the end, I landed a place @ $120 / night close to Boston Commons using the aforementioned Priceline.

    Bottom Line: Prices appear to be up this year...Book your hotels early or be prepared to pay through the nose or get locked out entirely.

    Damn, same weekend as Tough Mudder again! Not that I am doing Mudder, god no! But my Fest drinking partners last few years want to do Mudder because their kids do it now and my driver in and out of the fest (my wife) was thinking of going to Mudder too. Red Line it is!
