I just booked my room at the Ramada.

Secured the nights of 4 and 5 May. Is this too early to be getting excited about the next 'Fest?

Not at all. I'll wait for Keith to make his arrangements with the GM there before I reserve, though.

I don't think we got any discount over the Internet rates last year. Heck, this year they'll probably tack on a surcharge for property damage, if anything..

Yeah, I kind of didn't want to mention anything about being there for bimmerfest just in case. HOpefully whoever did that won't be back or will at least have matured.

Talked to Jed and Penny at the Ramada and they will not reserve it for BF only... and actually they said you better get your rooms NOW... Cinco De Mayo is one of the city's busiest weekends and the hotels will fill even without BF being there.

Booked ours today

At the Lemon Tree, $149 /night (+12% tax). Probably not the most luxurious(it has wifi!), but the Crocodile Bar & Restaurant is killer. Crawling distance to the room.

Things NOT to forget this year:
1. Camera
2. Walkie Talkie
3. Laptop
4. Sunblock
5. Chair
6. Put my front plate back on for the drive up.

Anything else?

I like the way you think! I think 400 cigs would last me about 3 hours w/ how I feel right now. I wonder how OBMD1's doing. Pu$$ys probably using the patch still.

If you got a King room, Mountainside and since you booked "early", then your rate should be $129, the late comers will be considerably more than that.

I just looked, I'm at $132.05 per night for room 119. That was a king mountainside w/ rollaway bed for SWISS to piss on. Last night the rooms were only up to 159 to start and the site would have let me make a new reservation so apparently they aren't full yet, or at least the website wasn't updated.
