Well we have dead cars and non-dead cars. But dead cards aren't really dead they are just dead for the day but very much alive after the show. But dead cars have certain parking rules and if they violate said rule well that is not hip to be square.

And heaven forbid you get stuck next to some nob who just kills the whole Buffett vibe. You'd be stuck with that person all day. Now you guys . . . I am happy to be stuck with you. Yes its true (yes its true), I am so happy to be stuck with you.

Just make sure there aren't any line infractions this year, Pat. :lol: Wait for it . . . because we're all walking on a thin line.

Let's see - too many covers?

They open the lots too late?
The lot attendants are idiots?
The Red Roof is kind of a dive?
scalpers s*** , the real fans should be in the premium seats.
By Buffettnews standards only like 15 people would qualify for the premium seats. Sadly, this would result in Jimmy raising the price of tickets to some ridiculous level. Like 150$ - 160$ per seat just to break even. Can't let that happen. Yes, Parrotheads, you do need money to ride this train.

There were like 10 jokes in there. Pretty impressive sh*t. Now who was the nob who said Varitek sucked? Better not bring the guy who brings the food. Gotta be nice to that guy.

If you're stuck in traffic and a lot attendant appears to open up another access point stay away. Damn bastards throwing us in a random corner

Last couple of years yes. Not actually lawn but the uncovered corner seats section they've held off selling on the initial sale day, the last couple years years. Don't recall when they've released them, believe June, but they've been same price as lawn and you can just walk on the lawn.

You'll just have to keep an eye on it because they do some releases along the way but it's pretty random.

The past 2 - 3 years really haven't been random. There has been a price drop for uncovered pavillion seats that no one wants. If you can't get a lawn just wait for the price drop. Those seats will sell through ticketmaster or livenation at lawn seat prices. Pat and I have done this the past few years and just walked up to the lawn.

You are welcome.

Even if there isn't a price drop, which there will be, you can still get a lawn from a place like aceticket for less than a poor seat. Probably 75 - 100$.

What I meant by random is that they don't announce it or anything it's just all of a sudden available. If I weren't such a terrible seat snob I'd wait

It is so much less stressful buying a ticket for one person. Section 5, Row K.
