Default NYC Javitz Show, are you going?

Hey Guys,

this time next week I'll be headed down with the gang to kickstart the season at the International Motorcycle Show at the Javitz Center. Last year I got a pic with Gunny at the Victory booth. I wonder if he's going to be there this year?

My wife and I are planning on hopping on the train Saturday morning for a trip to the city. Our main goal is the show and something to eat. We've never been to the bike show there , looking forward to it.

Well Ct there is a few good places fairly close to the Javits Center. All depends on how much you want to spend. Within walking distance there is plenty to eat. Two weeks ago I had a $60 steak around the corner from Uncle Charlies, supposed to be some TV Chef's place. I got pushed to go there and it wasn't any better than a $20 outback steak house. But there is a cool Bar / Pub called Scallywags its an irish pub at 508 9th Ave. New York, NY 10018 and it had a full menu and reasonable prices. The owner / barkeep Mike is good people.

The show its good sized for sure. But you want to get in EARLY and out early. It gets crowded early. Last year we were swamped by 12 - 1 and headed back out by 3.

It blows away the Hartford and Springfield Shows for sure.

Thanks for the info, Maybe we'll try the Pub. It's been awhile since I had a good Guinness!

Yeah good place, and the Guinness really flows! I heard they have good wings and steaks. I'll find out for sure on Saturday.

Hey Trashman,

Sundays are good too. Seems Sat Afternoon is the craziest.
