So, I will make the trip over the pond to take part on a work-related IT course in Manhattan for two weeks late January to early Feb. Will arrive JFK on the evening of Saturday January 21st and stay until Friday 3rd of February (which unfortunately is the day when the SymX/IE concert is in NJ so not gonna make it to that one). Going to also have my hotel near Times Square (pretty much on the corner of 52nd street / 8th Avenue) so should be a good location for doing stuff in the evenings after getting out of the course 5pm every day (plus there's the full weekend too without any program). So if anyone in the area wants to go for a beer / coffee / dinner or can give hints of concerts, great decent-price restaurants, or anything else to do in Manhattan or nearby please let me know! Only sure thing I have booked so far is the Tool concert in NJ on 1st of February. Also considering to go to the Rangers-Jets NHL game on the 24th but not sure about that yet.
