A comp in Brooklyn, NY mentioned in the new issue of BYO requires $17.00 per entry.  Isn't that a bit steep??  Thos most I've ever seen is $7.00 per entry.


<snarky comment about the cost of living in nyc>
Not snarky at all, NYC costs are out of control... That's why I live in Colorado

$2 = entry fee
$15 = taxes

As an ex-New Yorker, I think it's probably more like:

$2 entry fee
$5 taxes
$5 union shakedown
$5 mob taste

Remember The Sopranos?  I thought it should have shown on PBS instead of HBO because it seemed like a documentary to me.

Now you're just splitting hairs.  Items 3 and 4 are sub-categories of item 2.

HBO is the for-profit arm of PBS.
There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way.
