How much is parking there? I'd like to go, but going into Boston can be so expensive... gas, tolls, and parking just to get there, let alone what happens while there...

You can take the T in, and i can help if you need any. If not there's a parking garage right next to the aquarium on the right side. No idea how much it is though.

I'm not into the image, but into the hobby...

If you park at the Parkin lot there, they give you a stamp for it during the meeting. How much of a discount or free, I have no clue.

Parking in the garage is not cheap - I think its about $25 with the stamp.
However -- there's a ton of meter spaces in the side streets (india st, milk st, etc) across the street - and the meters are free after 8pm. I usually grab a metered space and put in a dollar or so (I tend to get there early) and I'm good for the night.
(but I'm cheap)

Get there early park at a meter.

Just park by the Hong Kong usually that street is empty at night till the bars get going. It's less the a 5min walk to the aquarium from there

Best deals are at the end of the night -- if nobody bids in about 30 seconds, somebody often "steals" the item for a few bucks

I'll be moving up to Albany, NY starting my grad school program this Fall. From what I've heard Boston is only a couple of hours away (and I've never been there before).

I'm definitely going to try and come to one of the meetings this Fall. Looks like a great club (I'm going to poke around some more on the club site).

Depends what part of Albany you are in. Usually from the main city it's about 2:30hrs doing speed limitz
