    Default Roommates

    Post here if you have a room and are looking or if you're looking for a spot in someone's room. Please include dates.

    Good luck!

    Here are some resources for your search:

    1. KMM just created a Facebook page for the ICED NOLA event and there people on the wall looking for roommates and rooms. Check them out at https://www.facebook.com/pages/KMMs-...69635149806274 by liking the page.
    2. Join Maniac Meetups where Maniacs plan gatherings and see if there's someone there who might help. Go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/maniacmeetup/
    3. Connect with other Maniacs at the Moning Maniacs group. They have an awesome ICED room doc that might help you out: https://www.facebook.com/groups/moningmaniacs/
    4. Keep an eye out for each other. If you see something that might help, please point it out!


    Happy Hunting!

    UPDATE from Leiha: "There are still rooms available. Their website isn't keeping up with the amount of Moning Maniacs making reservations. The price did go up on Fri and Sat from $199 to $250 but other than Sun ($199) the rooms are $120 extending out to Nov 4th. The price for that weekend for people not booking through KMM is significantly higher.

    Here is the number to reserve by phone. You must use the code KMM ICED to get the discounted rates: 1 (800) 535-9095"

    Rates for the hotel with the KMM ICED code are $250 and then $120, but they're charging $20 per person for each person over 2 per room. So it's becoming pretty expensive. Plus it's 13% tax.

    I believe we've found someone to room with us.
    Is that 20 a night per extra person? I'd recommend that you only reserve for the 2 of you until you confirm your roommate(s). Keeps the cost down & doesn't increase the price depending on unconfirmed guests. Good luck & see you soon!

    ICED NOLA Roomie Request: Looking for someone with an extra bed for 1 or 2 ppl at Le Pavillon from Oct 26 - Nov 1 at the original rates (if possible) and ideally has someone already w/them.

Booking & finding roomies may be your best bet. Good luck!
    As far as I know she has not announced the book store yet (though it probably will be Octavia they did a great job last time and they know what to expect lol) but yes the last time you only had to buy the book and the signing was free.

    That's correct. There's been no announcement made regarding where we will be able to pre-order from.

    Leiha already clarified the fact that the mention of the $120 was regarding the room rate ...NOT the signing itself.

    VP's best yet

    College student here! I'm going to be driving from Houston (very possibly with a +1) and I'd really like to find some nice folks to room with anywhere between Oct 26th-Nov 1st.
    Ideally I'd love to be able to stay at Le Pavillon but any hotel nearby is good with me too. I'm very excited about making this trip but I'd like to keep costs as low as possible. As many of you know, I'm sure, New Orleans can be expensive and even more so around Halloween =/
    If anyone is looking for roomies I'm good for the money and clean, I don't even mind sleeping on the floor or in a chair =D
