much has been written about this topic on the forums.

"Search and you will find"

PS. a little more info regarding what you consider a good place would be helpful.

I wasn't around DDF the last time someone posted in this thread, but I am your man for organizing it. The question is whether I could convince my wife that she'll have a good time. She would need certain wives to be there for that to happen most likely, but I could probably work on her.

The first Q is... this can only happen on a summer Shabbos right?

Because people work? I personally can't leave the office on a Friday before ~2PM. In the winter, that makes it impossible to make it home and then to a hotel. In the summer, that's still doable (and I could probably still get out by ~2PM).

i hear you.
I guess the only way it can work in the winter is if people take off Friday's (which is a tough ask)

Right. Or if it was in a hotel that's really close to where people live in NY/NJ.

If it's not possible, I'll bring this idea up again after busy season.

Promise your boss that if he is giving you off on that Friday, you won't be on DDF during work for the next 2 weeks. I bet you that he will agree  :P
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

My car is at home as well as my wife.

Agreed! There no such thing as getting permission to take off at my job. You take off, you lose an PTO day. Taking off a Friday for a DDFaton is not exactly worth it for the average DDFer who wants to save all those days for real trips.

This place looks nice, and you just need a couple of hours before Shabbos to leave work for those in NY?NJ.

I'd probably be game for a shabbaton next week in NYC metro...
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
