    Who has the fluffiest pillows, the best brews, the tastiest pancakes, the coolest side trips after the show? Discuss here...

    **With the 2020 show being cancelled soon, let's hope this mess will be gone for the 2021 show!

    Quoted from Kawydud:

    There always seemed to be decent after parties at the Comfort Inn bar, so now that it is a Sheraton we are going to stay there once again. Where is everyone else staying?

    I'm planning on staying at the Renaissance Allentown again, really nice joint. Just don't stay there if you have a trailer, parking is only available in a nearby parking garage. There is a decent brewpub within walking distance as well as a decent outside bar across the street (As long as it isn't down pouring like last year).

    This is the brewpub near the Renaissance: https://thebrewworks.com/

    This place is walking distance from the show, decent beer selection...Only real downside is you smell like an ashtray when you leave : https://www.tavernonliberty.com/

    Quoted from 1974DeltaQueen:

    Thinking about renting a rustic cabin 30 min west of the show. My fat ass doesn’t need waffles I need a hiking trail any other campers out there ?
    This would be roughing it no frills , just a bunk bed,
    A fire pit and a front porch . I’ve done the 4 star hotel thing this is just one last camping trip before I take a dirt nap. Camping with pinball. Anyone coming in with an RV ? https://www.rvonthego.com/pennsylvania/robin-hill-rv-resort-campground/?utm_source=yext&utm_medium=directory&utm_campaign=Yext%20Directory%20Listing

    One thing to keep in mind is it usually rains almost every Pinfest, you would have floated away last year.

    Was just looking at the Holiday Inn Express online, is their "Pinfest" price $139? Or did I enter the code incorrectly (Entered it in "Corporate ID" as "Group Code" only allows three characters).. Just weighing my options.

    Quoted from 1974DeltaQueen:

    Four points is sold out. I’ve stayed there before , they change names so Often I’ve lost track between this and comfort Suites

    Holiday Inn next door is still available, I booked today and canceled my Renaissance booking. I've stayed at the Holiday Inn a few times, never had an issue. (Has always been a step up from the old CS) Renaissance was awesome the past two years, but trying to find the parking garage, two steps away from death hungover last year blew....

    Quoted from Madmax541:

    Four points is comfort suites, there one and the same?

    Yes, and during transition from CS to FP they had a different name last year, Allentown Suites? Or something like that..

    Couldn't change my "non-refundable " reservation, but managed to cancel it fine. Will keep an eye on the CC to see if they whacked me.

    May not be able to attend this year..

    Highly unlikely the show will go on at this point, especially with the CDC recommendations. Strange Times...

    Quoted from 1974DeltaQueen:

    Didn’t book a hotel, motel. Cabin, or a lake house . Figured the State is going to shut Pinfest down right around Memorial Day. Lehigh County is still red. Pinfest 2020 if it happens ppl will be sleeping in Campers, or vans. We ought to be ripe by Day 3 .

    It's not happening, no idea why it's hasn't been cancelled yet, since everything else under the sun is cancelled until basically winter. If I'm wrong and it does happen in June, it will be a shadow of itself. I'll be there next year, if the world is allowing life by then.

    Quoted from Murphdom:

    I PM’d Ivan to make sure and he gave me the dates. It’s the weekend of May 8th.

    Great, Mother's day weekend.

    Quoted from Ivan1496:

    I will if I can bro. I answer to a higher power, the venue manager. I seem to think I compete with a gun show which is as big and all weekend. They don’t like Mother’s Day weekend either.

    Fingers crossed I can hear it now, "You take half the weekend off for a pinball show, but you're working on mother's day?!". I believe I had to skip the show a few years ago due to it being on Mother's day weekend.
