I'm thinking about going to Jones Beach, never been there. Can anyone answer some questions for me?

- what is the parking like? When do the lots open?

- how is the tailgating? Do they allow alcohol? Are cops cool or do they hassel you?

Thanks

It's the beach so the lots open early, when I lived on Long Island that used to mean sunrise but I think it's usually around 9:00 now. You have to pay for parking, if I remember correctly it was $10 last year.

It's a state park and that means it's supposed to be alcohol free. Pour your beer into a cup and you won't have any problems. I've never seen the State Park Police break anyone's chops. One year an officer drove by our tailgate, stopped and told us to put a blanket or towel over the liquor bottles we had set up on a folding table so he couldn't see them the next time he drove by. They'll usually leave you alone unless you can them a reason not to.

Orch. H, row CC. After I bought that, I went back in just for laughs to see what was available. I got Orch. B, row L but I wasn't laying out another $185 to get a few rows closer.

The lots open at 7:00. Last year they parked employee cars in half of what used to be a primo lot (field 5? near the bathrooms, anyway) and sent us all packing a ten minute walk away. Stupid.

And they wouldn't let you save spaces for late arrivals, either. You could save a space, but they called the lot full and sent your friends to the back 40. So you kind of have to come in together now, like at other venues.

I have an extra ticket in the ticket exchange for face. Sec D Row L, Seat 16. That's the far left end of the row, where JB and the band walk past on their way out. JB shakes hands as he goes by.

I never liked the fact that they let people save spaces. You would sometimes have 1 or 2 cars come in, then they would rope off 20 spaces. That's BS.

Orch H row PP at 130 PM. Now if I went on at 10 am I would have been stuck in the nose bleeds. But man, this is too costly. I have to reconsider next year.

hmmm ... that remark could be interpreted in a number of ways :wink:

Jones Beach is a fun venue even though last year's parking lot situation was a bit of a fustercluck
