Re: Who's going to Bristow Sat Aug 4th?

Probably not time to start a rumor thread just yet but Jimmy did mention last night that they might be doing something again at Merriweather.

Seems later than usual, squeezing the tailgating time.
Sadly, pretty much the standard there these days.

Re: Who's Going to Pittsburgh 7/7/18??

I hear what you're saying but that was not the issue Saturday night. The gates opened at 6:30. There were already people in line then. There was NEVER NOT a line! So that falls on the people processing people into the venue. They simply couldn't handle the volume of the crowd in that hour and a half...

Re: Who's Going to Pittsburgh 7/7/18??

Fortunately we parked on the other side and used the east entrance so we didn't have to go through that chaos. The East was just as bad. At 9 pm there were still people shoulder to shoulder on the long walkway from the parking lot out by Rt. 18. There are plenty of pictures on social media proving ...

Re: Who's Going to Pittsburgh 7/7/18??

I'm just stunned at the s*** show that developed trying to get people inside. I've never seen anything like that before. There were thousands of people who missed most if not all the show.

Re: Who's Going to Pittsburgh 7/7/18??

I don't see the lots opening earlier than noon but they might queue some cars in the lanes just to get them off of Rt. 18. Traffic flow in should be pretty good with the early opening; that's my recollection from 2007 when they opened early.

Re: Who's Going to Pittsburgh 7/7/18??

I called the venue today and they said the lots will open at NOON! What is this, 2007?!?! Shouldn't be nearly the traffic hassles getting in this year. Holy crap! That is awesome news! Thanks for calling and sharing. It's gonna be a good day Tater! You're right, the last time that happened was in 2...

Re: Who's Going to Pittsburgh 7/7/18??

To those in the know is the VIP parking worth it? In my opinion the answer is yes. If you are there when they cave in and open the lots many times they will put you way out in the front in the lot by Rt. 18 which is a long walk to the venue and the rest of the parking areas. The VIP is paved and is...

Re: Who's Going to Pittsburgh 7/7/18??

Starting to get excited about this show. Maybe since it's a Saturday that will cause even more people to show up early and force an earlier parking lot opening. I'm trying to remember the last Saturday show at Star Lake. Off the top of my head I'm thinking it was 2007? The lots definitely opened clo...

Re: Rank the Locations You've Seen Jimmy

I've seen Jimmy almost 100 times but I'm blown away at how many of you have been to such varied venues. Having multiple shows at Merriweather and Stone Ridge/Nissan/Jiffy Lube over the years really helped to up my numbers. There are so many good and bad parts of places it's really hard to come up wi...

Re: Who's going to Baltimore Fri Mar 30th??

We wound up having a really good time. Made some new friends at the "street party" which was still fun for us diehards who stuck it out through the rain. Small venue so the view was good and honestly I thought it was one of the better shows I've seen in a awhile. Very happy I changed my mind on atte...

Re: Who's going to Baltimore Fri Mar 30th??

I went from being pretty ambivalent about this show to getting some tickets once the price dropped to now being really excited for tomorrow. It's been a long winter. Should be a great way to kick its ass out the door!

Re: Who's going to Baltimore Fri Mar 30th??

The tailgate party starts at 2 so I'm not sure what happy hours might start before that. Pickles and Sliders will probably have some stuff going on. You can always stroll down to the Inner Harbor as well. The Pratt Street Ale House might be a possibility. I decided to attend this show once the price...

Re: Who's going to Bristow Sat Aug 4th?

Hey All I hate asking this question but what is the tailgate like in Bristow? My usual road trip is to Boston but I don't think that will happen this year. Virginia /August 4 work well. Is it an early parking lot? Great crowd ?? Thanks John Yeah, it really used to be awesome, in fact I'd have put i...

Re: What is the WORST Jimmy Buffett song?

I too think Glory Days is beyond awful as far as covers go. At one point it sounds like he doesn't even know the lyrics and his voice just trails off. Trippin' Billies was pretty bad too. Heard that one in person as the encore at Bristow. Ugh. Too Drunk to Karaoke is bad. But what about Workin' and ...

Re: Who's going to Bristow Sat Aug 4th

As I've posted before I've given up on JLL as a venue to see Jimmy because they just killed the vibe for me there. But this year I'm doing something different and will actually be working on the local crew that day. There should be some time to wander around the parking lot in the late afternoon. Af...

Re: Fenway 2018 (ugh)

Well, a non-Saturday show just removed all doubt for me. Not doing that for Fenway. There's always next year hopefully.
