You can also take the subway to Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn and get on the LIRR there. The LIRR trains at Penn Station and Atlantic Terminal don't run on the same schedule so be sure to look at the correct one.

Could depend on what you bring for lunch! :D

 

Realize I kid.  No food or drink is allowed (or is that just strongly suggested?) within the confines of the meeting room for obvious reasons.

Theoretically you put your name and max price on a slip of paper near some donated gear. Much like analog ebay. In practice it turns into a pretty standard auction with someone yelling at people to give them money. 

 

$5-20 is reasonable to just give the organizer to cover room costs if you don't buy anything in the auction. If you want to buy stuff, maybe$200. Or prepare for a mad dash to an ATM machine.

There should be room for you. I could always bring out another table if needed.
