The one Brad links to is claimed to have been sold as a souvenir at the New York World's Fair, which would place it at 1964/65.

The second category, the Large room, has a King bed and a sofa bed. You can see it in the photos and I confirmed it with the hotel.

Or you can just book at the Hilton.

Yes, the prices for 2021 are nearly double the prices from this year, or even 2020. This is a known occurrence with FISM.

Re: FISM 2021 Hotels Released

Diego, look at reviews on Trip Advisor for opinions on hotels. People who have never been to a FISM before should be forewarned that in the past all official and recommended hotels jack up their prices for FISM (often doubling them).

Many who post on social media using their phones not only don't capitalize, but don't use full words or any punctuation. I think Brad is actually doing better than many others. But I do wish he would capitalize people's names.

Shin Lim might not be using "stooges" at the moment the layfolks are chosen from the audience, but I'm pretty sure they get "instant stooged" during the act. I remember something about signatures not matching
