When visiting New York City, one of the things on many peoples’ “must do” list is to see a Broadway show. Over the past decade or two that’s become somewhat more difficult to do, since the prices for some shows have risen astronomically, and other shows are just seemingly impossible to get tickets for, unless you order them months, if not well over a year in advance. Despite this, there are several ways to try to get last-minute tickets, even for those really popular shows, that may or may not cost a fortune.
It’s the weekend, y’all! HOORAY! Here’s a quick recap of the posts we wrote this week:
This week Joe wrote about:
- Should you drive or fly to your vacation destination – this article has the math to help you decide.
- The fantastic sightseeing tour of Manhattan that Joe got on his last Delta flight to LaGuardia Airport.
- Whether or not you should pay your taxes with a credit card.
- Your last chance to win a trip to see a Broadway show from JetBlue.
- Some quick thoughts about his very first flight on Frontier Airlines.
And Sharon wrote about:
- The menu for the soon-to-open Voo Doo Doughnuts at Universal Orlando.
- The map that helps take the guesswork out of when is the best time to travel to the destination of your choice.
- A brand-new camping experience…in the middle of New York City.
- #TBT: 1984 video of EPCOT Center’s World Key Information System.
- The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity when (are you sitting down?) a TSA worker did something nice for her 😉

Hi friends! Here are the articles we saw last week, written by other travel bloggers, that we learned from, made us think or maybe made us chuckle a little bit. We hope you enjoy them!
- While The Points Guy website tells you how to use points for Coachella, we managed to get the Holiday Inn Express in Palm Desert during Desert Trip for 20,000 points a night using alerts from Hotel Hustle.
- Following American Express, Mastercard and Discover’s lead, Visa will no longer require signatures for transactions.
- Tiffany at One Mile At A Time broke her own rule about dealing with call center representatives….
- …While Ben (also at One Mile At A Time) shared what he thinks is the cutest W Hotel he’s ever stayed at.
- Do you have to show your AAA card when you book with a discount? Some say no (and don’t even have one to begin with). I would never suggest this.
- The 2nd Avenue subway is open and is not like your usual subway experience.
- The similarity between points and bitcoin is that both can devalue overnight.
- I love looking at people’s best pictures list because there’s a story behind every picture.
- Having spent time in the Reno Airport before, a decent lounge is a nice addition. However, if it was there before I never would have won over $500 on a Star Wars slot machine while waiting for my flight.
- Alaska Airlines still has customer friendly policies. Forgetting them can cost you a bunch of points.

If you’re vacationing or traveling on business in New York, or heck, even if you live there, you know your time is limited – you’ve got things to do and places to go and people to see! But if you want SRO tickets for School of Rock or to be the first person on your block with the latest iPhone or Air Jordans, or maybe your driver’s license is expiring and you have to get a new one at the DMV, it requires standing on line, sometimes for hours. You can, of course, use your own time to stand there, sometimes in the hottest, coldest or rainiest or snowiest of weather, but what if there was someone you could pay to stand on line for you while you got other things done? Well, you can! Same Old Line Dudes, LLC (SOLD) is a team of professional line sitters and they’re ready and able to stand on line on your behalf so you can get other things done. Here’s how it works:

Are you a fan of Stranger Things? Are you a really big fan? Because if you are, a hotel in midtown Manhattan has the most perfect Stranger Things themed room ever, all ready for you!
You know the scene – Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the classic film based on the novel by Truman Capote, opens with Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn), nibbling on a pastry and drinking some coffee while peeking into the windows of the Tiffany & Co. It’s early and the store isn’t open yet, so all she can do is gaze longingly at everything.
Since the film’s premiere in 1961, no one’s been able to really eat breakfast at Tiffany’s (I mean, really, they sell jewelry, china and silver!), but if you’re a Audrey Hepburn fan, get ready to swoon, because now you can!
