So I found out last night that I somehow managed to score tickets to Antiques Roadshow in NYC in a couple of weeks. I live in NJ though, and do not drive into NYC, ever, and never will. The issue though, is that our entrance time is 8am, on a Sat, when mass transit runs later. Ugh.
I really don't want to drive in, alhtough I've been assured since its at the Javits Center, its easy. So our one option, possibly was a 5:30 am train in. On a Sat. Ugh. my friend who's going with me starts work that early, so the early hour is only bad for me. but I'd do it.
Then a friend, who is clueless and flaky said, why don't you take a car in? AHA - yes, it will cost some $$, but totally worth it, in my eyes. I don't know why that didn't occur to me!
