*** Offical SPAC 2023 Thread ***

It's that time of year! Rumored dates are 7/14+7/15.

I believe track season opens that weekend? I'm sure the locals will correct me on that one.

See you at SPAC!

    Thinking of going this year for the first time. Where is the best place to stay? I prefer a nicer place/location than going for cheapest place to stay.

    Any suggestions would be great!
    Thanks!

    was really hoping it was 7.7 and 7.8 as we had a killer house and everyone could make it. current rumored week means a small place and half my crew canít make it

    We went for the first time last year, if you don't care about price and don't want to drive post show stay at the Gideon Putnam. 5 minute walk back after the shows and overall nice place (historic nice). We stayed at the Embassy for the pre show nights to be close to the action on Broadway but Gideon has a shuttle.

    because it's less seats/lottery selections available to be chosen for.
