Last time I went to the "W" in Hoboken I had a great time, drinks are a little steep but great snacks. I good for Friday Evening. I can call ahead a see about parking for large trucks. Last time they put my truck in front because it would not fit in the garage. There is room for about 10 vehicles up front........

We'll bear it in mind for the NJ / Hoboken meetup ... all kidding aside somewhere a bit higher end would be nice ... as long as they aren't going to worry about me dripping engine oil, gear box, transfer box oil, power steering fluid and coolant in front of their hotel!

To be honest I'm not sure I could make this coming Friday ... have overseas visitors to entertain unfortunately. I'm sure a few of the others might be available though.

Hoboken Meet up

OK, I called the "W" in Hoboken to see if they could arrange VIP parking for us. They said it would most likely not be a problem. The GM is going to call me tomorrow. Please let me know who is interested. I told them probably 3-6 vehicles....

Nice. I'm in. If there's no parking in the front loop, we may be able to park on Sinatra Drive at 3rd Street if there are open spots, as the W's outdoor seating faces NYC and Sinatra Drive.

I think I have parking arranged in the front of the building, I guess the Bently's and the Roll's will have to be garaged while we are there. Remember to bring a piece of cardboard if your truck leaks.....

What a-holes.

Inside bars are the chandelier room and something else. There's also "outdoor" or sidewalk seating to the restaurant facing Sinatra Drive if we can find parking out there.
