A New York State of Mind
Cold, cold, cold, I don’t know why I keep picking locations in the midst of snowstorms and blizzards, such the case when I arrived in New York City. A good friend invited me stay with her so she could take care of me while I battle the flu, as I had did for her in Los Angeles. She had a two bedroom 2nd floor walk up in Brooklyn, and time off of work to nurse be back to health.
The weather was horrible the first few days in New York, it was like it was mirroring the battle my body was having with the flu. I had never been so sick in my life, the flu is no joke, but my friend got me through it, and I was right as rain I no time. The weather in New York improved as well, it was still blistering cold, but the snowstorms where gone, for now.
While I was on the mend, I decided to move my NYC BJM event from April 26-28, to March 14-17. I was just recovering from the flu, and that gave me 3 weeks for me to gain my strength back, and to make sure I was no longer contagious. It was a last minute event, but I had a great response form local fans that where happy with the date change and supported the event.
I didn’t do much sight seeing on this trip, just hit up time square and Madison Avenue, I am going to return to NYC later on in the year, once it warms up.
The NYC BJM event took place St. Patrick’s day weekend and dressed in theme for the holiday. I hosted the event at the Millennium Hilton World Trade Center, and was hooked up with a 32nd floor room with a amazing view of the trade center. To date this is the most expensive hotel I’ve ever hosted a BJM event at, and although it was a beautiful hotel, I did not feel it was worth the $400 a night price tag, even with a million dollar view.
The NYC BJM event wasn’t a true marathon, I had a dozen guys come through, just enough to cover the cost of hosting the event. Being that this was a last minute event, I was completely ok with the turn out. As always the guys where wonderful and respectful, and I loved hearing the different variations of New York accents
And on to Minneapolis.....again!
I finally made it to Minneapolis, after the tour stop had be delayed due to me coming down with the flu. I really wanted to host my BJM event in the St. Paul area since I’ve been to the twin cities 3 times and never made it to that area of the city. But I didn’t have the time to spend researching hotels in the area, so I stuck with what I know, in a area that I was very familiar with, the Bloomington Mall of America area.
I love shopping and I really love the Mall of America, the concept is so 90’s. I was disappointed that there was no longer a movie theater there, but happy to see that the theater that was once there was being completely remolded and updated to today’s standards. Seeing Into The Darkness there my last visit was such a disappointment.
The guys where happy that I was actually in town since this trip was delayed 2 times, and I was happy to see them. Almost every guy from my previous BJM events attend this one, with a half a dozen new guys thrown into the mix. Because I had spent so much money on my hotel in NYC, I had to save some dollars and stay at sub par motel in Minneapolis.
