    This sounds like a blast, but I'd be leaving from western edge of Jersey (river area)... after a late night of working, don't think I'll make it up there in time. Enjoy! Rosanna Danna

    If anyone is driving from Queens and can fit 2, we'd be happy to share gas and then we could bring a cooler with food to share! Otherwise we'll be taking the LIRR and cabbing it and be bringing a bit less.
