it's not a DansDeals thing, just a New York thing.

Unless you're flying in from Baghdad, you'll likely do better just packing yourself a tuna fish sandwich.

Seriously, what is up with dansdeals and the inability to go for more than 2.5 hours without a kosher restaurant and full service supermarket? When the zombie apocalypse comes, don't expect me to share with you.  Maybe I'll sell my deli sandwiches for a few hundred dollars each and call it a restaurant.

I am staying there overnight on the way to Niagara was hoping to feed the kids there.....

Sorry for jumping on you.  Here's a few constructive ideas:

1. Bring disposable grills (cost about 3-4 dollars) and hot dogs. Or hamburger meat. In a cooler. Or salmon.
2. Bring a Foreman, and do any of the above.
3. Bring deli meat and bread. Or buy fresh bread in National Bakery. Or I'm betting Price Chopper has some kosher deli, but confirm.
4. Bring a sandwich maker, bread, and cheese.

I'm pretty sure wilkes barre (Kingston) has some kind of deli...
There has been an attempt or two at that, AFAIK that's long dead.

Check out Ricketts Glen State Park, about 45-60 minutes away - a little-known treasure with about 20 waterfalls over the course of a fairly flat and easy 3-4 mile hike.

Anyone been to the Hilton recently for shabbos? Is everything electronic?  Are there nice grounds to walk around on shabbos or a nice park?

Never stayed at Hilton, we stay across the street at Radisson using Club Carlson points. The area is pretty urban and not at all what I'd consider nice grounds for a Shabbos walk. There may be a park you could walk to, check Google Maps.

Debating between the Four Points and Hilton for Shabbos.  I can stay in the Four Points for 3000 Points a night vs $250.00 per night in the Hilton.
