For Once, It Pays to Be From New Jersey
...Or New York. Connecticut, too!
Via MSNBC, we find out that The Algonquin Hotel in Times Square is offering a "Broadway Night Out" special, specifically for residents of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut who might be staying in for the sake of saving money (after losing their high-paying Wall Street jobs, perhaps?)
The deal, launched "in the midst of turbulent times" is available all year (is The Algonquin privy to some devastating financial forecast the rest of us aren't?) and includes 20-percent off room rates, a free upgrade, breakfast for two, and the choice of free parking or a $25 food and beverage credit at the hotel's Round Table Room restaurant. For an additional fee, the deal also includes help securing tickets to a Broadway show, opera, sport game, or other events throughout the city.
To snag the deal, all you need to do is present a valid New York, New Jersey or Connecticut driver's license.
