For two people, that's about what it would cost.

Maybe $2,600 if you want me to be more specific.

Two people can definitely do the trip for $1,500-2,000. Still expensive, but $3,000 gets you a fairly luxurious extended weekend in NYC.

Just because I hate to see somebody deprive themselves of the greatest city on earth. You just need to find a friend in New York with an extra bed... My sister is coming and staying with us and pulling it off for less than $500 total (beer and booze are no more expensive at MSG than they were at Scottstrade, happy hour deals Creighton negotiated are in line with what you would pay in STL). Even without a free place to stay, I think your estimate is a touch high.

I say price tag comes in under $2,000:
Hotel x 3 = $600 total (stay somewhere uptown in the UWS, more interesting neighborhood and easy subway ride)
Flight x 2 = $800 total
Taxi x 2 = $90
Tickets x 2 ($60 x ~2 sessions) = $240

= $1,730 + food and drink.

Question....Does JP come to Creighton if we are still in the Valley?

I know he loves the Jays but does he not pull the trigger so quickly on his commitment and listens to bigger offers if we are still stuck in the Valley.

Plus babysitter cost back home. And two taxi rides? Probably still under my guesstimate but my point was that it's freaking expensive as hell. And greatest city on Earth? Puhleeez.

If you don't have the luxury of staying for free with a friend or family member, your estimate is a touch low if we're comparing to what people did in going to the MVC.

Hotel -- if you're going for the BET, let's assume you're going for the tournament -- that's 4 nights hotel (Wed thru Sat) for quite a few of the people here. $200 is a minimum per night -- and certainly doesn't amount to "luxurious" or whatever that one earlier post suggested. So that's $800.

Flight -- $800.

Taxi / Subway / etc. -- $100 -- you might be able to avoid or reduce that, but it's comparable to what you threw out.

Tickets -- again, if you're buying all session tickets, the minimum was $400 each -- for two people = $800.

That's $2500 before you eat or drink anything. And before you add any other entertainment during what is likely an unusual or only very very occasional trip to the greatest city on earth. So you likely want to add something else there.

$3000 for two people is not a lavish trip to NYC. It's a pretty reasonable and modest one for a trip from Omaha to NYC for the tournament and just a little bit of other entertainment -- and maybe actually a bit low of an estimate.

But then you're not at a game, which means you're probably doing some entertainment, which costs money. Unless you don't have a needy wife and kids who need shit to do, then you can just veg out all day and do nothing until the Jays take the floor. Count me in as one who misses STL and won't ever consider NYC. Arch Madness was a two hour drive for us.
