Our friend from across the pond is looking for an affordable place to stay for the night on Indy's North Side. Any hints, tips or help would be appreciated. Right now, Hicks, able and shade are outside of Conseco Fieldhouse trying to figure something out. If you know anything, or anyway to help contact them via e-mail thru able's blackberry at:

abel@able-towers.com


Thanks...

What is affordable. Is he talking about $35 or more in the $70 range.

I can only speak for myself, but I'll pony up some $$ so he can stay someplace. It is kinda late to put anything together. If Shade or Hicks can rent a room for him someplace, I'll pay some $$ tomorrow.

College teams love to stay there though (Kentucky was there a couple years back), so you might be out of luck with the final 4 in town.

There aren't any hotel rooms available anywhere close to downtown. I sent them an E-mail telling them to leave downtown, go Castleton area.

I sincerely doubt there are any rooms near Indy. Any room that might have been less expensive before has a jacked up price because of the tournament.

There are some rooms in the Castleton area, I checked a few places. But I talked to Hicks and it seems that Roaming found them a place for tonight at least.

Well he won't need a room tomorrow, we'll be at Perkins until his plane leaves.

I was there too, and I'm exhausted. I went to work, drove to get abel and back, went to the game, and stayed there until I was sure he had somewhere to go.

Now, I'm going to take my *** to work without any sleep. :) Fun fun!

It was an EXTREMELY strange night all around. Including Granger's attire after the game was over. I'll let someone else spill the beans on that one though. Weird.

So Shade, you're picking him up at a specific time? That got worked out OK?

What a strange, strange, STRANGE evening. Damn.

Great to meet and talk with Abel though (you too, PF46). Looking forward to... I guess that would have to be called "tonight", wouldn't it?

P.S. Danny Granger is a pimp. I never would have guessed.

Pimp Masta Dan, yo! :pimp:

You deserve pretty much all the cyber gratitude and thanks we can dish out. Hopefully, someone at least buys you a beer at the forum party tonight.

What time does Able need to check out of the hotel and where is he going then

I take it he doesn't need it now, but Able can stay at my place tonight if he wants. I'm in Avon which is pretty close to the Indy airport. I'll be at the forum party tonight... at some point.

Just PM me if you want my cell or anything.

You'll just have to wait for Jose's party post mortem.
