We have a 2 minute discussion called, "superheat and it's impact on a global economy." That lets you write it off as a biz trip, if 2 minutes is too long, we can shorten it up some.
Here are some hotels open for Sept 9-11. As you can see they are more pricey than the one we had in Pittsburgh.
BUT don't forget, we had to pay for a party bus for the Friday night tour. Even though these rooms are more, we can all walk around down by the inner harbor, which is the place to be. And I bet since it is after summer, if a certain someone calls them up and schedules a "convention" and says we will probably get about 20 rooms, they will give us a discount.....ya dig.
