    Plenty of things to do in a city that never sleeps, that's for sure. But, you wouldn't want to stick around and watch Iowa State play in the Elite 8 game for the chance to go to the Final Four?

    Obvously I would want to stay for that game but I would be doing this by myself and this would be a lot cheaper.

    Where do you get tickets for this at?

    Yes, this is a pretty decent thing to do. New Brunswick is on the train line and has some reasonable hotels close to the NJ transit station and it is the home of Rutgers, so decently fun. Westfield, NJ is also on the train line but only has one hotel close to NJ transit and it's not great. There's a hotel in Rahway, NJ, but Rahway isn't the greatest place in NJ (kind of a smaller Newark) but it's easy into Penn Station from there. Absolutely fly into Newark though. JFK and LGA are awful.

    Re: MSG Tickets

    Tickets have been sold out for weeks (gleaned from NCAA official ticketing website - only tickets left for weeks have been VIP packages that were >>$1000). It appears that, unless you a are a huge donor, you'll have to go through a re-seller like Stubhub or scalpers.

    I've been keeping an eye on Stubhub for this round since we saw our seed; currently, tickets to the Friday games only start around $300, while tickets good for Friday AND Saturday start around $400-450.

    Re: MSG Tickets

    Please PM me if anyone has any information on tickets.

    Flying in to Philly might be cheaper. Two hour drive or can take the Amtrak to NYC. For people coming to the East Coast there is plenty of options for hotel and lodging that is reasonable.

    Fly Omaha to DC non stop on Frontier and take the train up to NYC.

    Just for fun we thought we'd see how much it would be to take the family on the trip. It's $1054 for a child.....

    Re: MSG Tickets

    Any clue when we play Friday? I'm trying to book a flight for that morning.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: MSG Tickets

    For anyone looking for east coast transportation very cheap, I recommend Megabus:

    https://us.megabus.com/

    It runs pretty often all the way from DC to Boston, with several stops along the way. Amtrak is also an option (generally faster due to no traffic and also more comfortable) but also more expensive.
