I am a fan of Rudy Rucker (in spite of the fact the he hated the story I submitted to his zine).
I wish there was an easy way to go to this show next Tuesday night. I keep going over ways to make it there.
I can drive, I guess, leaving work at 4:30, I could possibly make there and find parking in time. Two hours to go about 15 miles might be enough time to make it through city traffic. Soho is not an easy location to get to by car. I’d have to go down to Canal Street, park and then walk (through very iffy neighborhoods). Tolls would be $10, parking about $30 and I’d have to eat down there about $20. Then $7 to get in. Total $67 to see a half hour talk.
The train is out because the bus stops around midnight and I don’t know when I’d get back. Also the train and the bus combo will kill two hours in and of themselves, and I’d still have to get to Penn Station on the subway by 11pm.
