    I've been meaning to text you...

    I really haven't booked anything. I think our crew got a house.

    probably a common question but, is it worth joining the warehouse to get tickets?

    SPAC tickets (inside) are usually some of the hardest to get on tour.

    I will never understand how people who support scalpers don't realize they are part of the problem. Is it more work to find tickets for face value, sure. But people on places like here and the WH always tend to help out in the end.

    Didn't you score both nights first time?

    Either way, it'll work out , even when shut out on general sale and Warehouse

    I think so too. And yep - I got N2 thru the WH and scored a single in the public sale. So I was very thankful. Looking forward to this year as well

    Noticed last year that closer to the show, some of the small Inns and Motels on Broadway cut their prices.

    Surprisingly, just booked the Inn at Saratoga for $175/night (3 nights).

    That's a weird late snag. We're there for two nights at $185 a night reserved on Dec 10. Maybe the difference is the rooms and the availability was based on a cancellation. Good score though.

    Picks you up literally right in front of the hotel and drops you off right in front of venue. It was amazing. Barely any wait on either leg of the trip

    There are really two ways to look at this.

    1. Joining the warehouse gives you an extra chance to get tickets to undoubtedly the hardest shows of the summer to get tickets to.

    2. Even with a WH membership, odds of getting tickets are still extremely low for SPAC (for other shows, not so much, see below).

    So I guess it really comes down to how much you value the cost of the WH membership. Despite my frustration with the WH, the extra (although small) chance to get tickets to SPAC, combined with an almost guarantee of pit tickets to Hartford (when I make the Hartford my show priority), makes it worth it for me. So much so that I have 2 accounts and generally end up with 4 pit tickets to Hartford before the public sale even begins. But, on the flip side, I can definitely see how it is not worth it to people, especially if you are only planning on doing one or two shows per year.

    How do people have 2 warehouse accounts? Thought it went by address and credit card? Just curious.

    Yea, simple work around for that. Chance one of the billing addresses to your work address or a family member's house/residence. Amex lets me change it whenever I want.

    Booking.com has the Community Court Motel (248 Broadway) for $94 a night right now ($106 with tax). Great location and price if you don't mind staying in a motel vs. hotel. Have to cancel one month in advance.

    I've never stayed at that particular hotel, but I've been to Clifton Park a million times. Nice area. Larger than Saratoga. A lot of chain restaurants, walmart, etc. If you're willing to drive, it's not a bad option at all.
