NYC Buddies Arrive in L.A. on $5,000 Cab Fare
Last weekend, John Belitsky and Dan Wuebben hailed a cab at LaGuardia Airport and asked the driver to take them to Los Angeles. It started out as somewhat of a dare when Belitsky's father, a former NYC cab driver, was certain nobody would be up to the task.
