I have access to a hotel room that was reserved by friends here at Vivid
who will not be going. I cannot financially handle that room on my own,
but if 2 or 3 folks in similar straits would like to split its costs, give
me a call at (416) 340-9290 x226. It is located in the downtown core,
just about 25 minuts walk (tops) from the convention center. I just found
this out today, I'll have more details concerning its location and room
size tomorrow. We are holding on to that reservation for some more days
just to give me or others a chance to avail ourselves of it.
