    I believe the partnership is $1400 at least. The info was here: http://www.wpunj.edu/dls/Partnership.cfm

    When you buy tickets, there's a "meet the guest" option that's $500 (which is still too much for me, lol).

    I must have missed the meet the guest. It is too much too but I was willing to do it, since I was going to come from so far was going to make the trip worth while.

    Well it does sound like there might be a book signing after the event, so that's a possibility. And at least he'll get to see them at all, that's a rare opportunity in itself. :)

    Exactly. Will I be disappointed if there's no signing afterwards and/or meet and greet? Absolutely but just to see them onstage (especially Frank Oz who rarely does stuff like this) and hear them share their stories, etc. will be phenomenal. If this is anything like the event they had in Huntington, NY a couple of years back, it'll be well worth it either way.

    It was good on the authors part, but I was afraid the host was going to pass during the interview she sounded so old. She didn't get more than one word out every 10 seconds and it made it very tough to listen too

    Amen to that my friend, If I wasn't so busy with both work and School I would have loved to go too.


    Either way, someone please ask if there is a 40th anniversary special coming on TV this year and if Abby Cadabby is going to be meeting up with other old SS characters like Ernie and Bert ?

    My mom and I are really excited about this! Don't know where we're seated though; will check the tickets later. And oh yes, I'm counting on meeting at least some of you there! Erin, weren't you and Steve trying to work something out? Also, is your brother coming? If so, that makes the count of confirmed people and their families at least 21. Lol, I thought I was the only person counting names!
    :)
    :batty:

    See you there!

    Well, Steve said he wanted some of the people who were going to e-mail him, and probably set up a time to meet before the event.

    And yes, my brother's coming, so that's four in my group. And like I said, we're in row K.

    Thanks, I'll do that then. Oh well, we're not too far away from each other. We're in orchestra row J.
    Melissa, what's the name of the hotel you're staying at, where is it, and approximately how expensive is it? Thanks.
    :)

    Hi! We're staying at the Residence Inn in Wayne, NJ. If you go to Expedia and look it up they have a lot of info there. Starting rates were $119 a night. When I went to look for a place, I just typed in hotels close to the college. That was the first one that came up.

    Looks like a nice place.

    Ordered my tickets last night and got my confirmation today. I don't know my location of seats yet, but my wife & I are going and then meeting in CT with two more friends going.

    I can't wait, this is going to be so cool.

    Haralde, we're in seats 142 and 143.
    Melissa, is it possible for you to give me the phone number to the hotel, or a link to the page?

    I hope everyone will come back with reports of the event! Maybe it can all be compiled later into one nice article and put on MC?

    I really hope I can bump into who ever's going. Maybe take a picture of all of us like MCers together in the real world!

    Yeah it would be like...the Twilight Zone or something, lol.

    So Dave and Haralde, what seats are you in? Dave, my mom's really eager to meet the guy that made those great muppet pictures I've got on my wall!
    :D Oh, and if you are able to take a picture, count me in!

    i'm pretty new here, so i don't know you guys online as well as you all do, but i want to meet everyone, too! it would be nice to talk to people in person about muppets for a change--none of my real world friends or family are muppet fans. i'm probably going with my cousin, so most of my day will probably be more of a girls' night out than a muppet pilgrimage...what about everyone else? are you going with other die-hard fans, or with people who just like you enough to condone your crazy obsessions?
