Welcome to the Cleveland thread! I don't have good news for you. We get in early with the North Coast club, but I don't know when the gates open to the public. The long range forecast is sunny, but cool. That stymies my painting due to very little exposed skin...sigh. Anyone have a better insight on this?

I have heard, from multiple sources, but have not seen or been told directly:

The parking area at Blossom is a mess, as they are reconfiguring the lots, and adding another entrance/exit.

The parking lots will be open to the general public by 2pm on Sunday.

If you call Blossom about anything to confirm, expect little to no answers, and a good dose of the runaround.

Premium parking passes not a bad way to go, otherwise, it is possible you will walk a great distance, and/or wait a long time to exit the lots. A very good possibility.

There will be a guy painting on people located next to a guy grilling up food for whoever happens to come along. There will be a certain ethnic Parrothead indulging in "Holy water". (BTW, I have Karat's recipe to be at the ready for ceremonial shots, with the appropriate recipe adjustments to accommodate the said Holy water...only one man in the world will understand this, but many will be enlightened)

Clevelanders will tell you Blossom is a beautiful setting, located pretty much in the middle of absolutely nowhere Ohio. Somewhere too far south of Cleveland, and too far north of Akron. Police force have a well too well deserved and earned reputation to be, er, well, ....the English slang term for detectives, the plural of Mr. Tracy's and Mr. Van Dyke's first name, short (no pun intended) for "Richard".

Current forecast is high of 85, low of 65, 30% chance of isolated showers. Blossom is in a valley (you know only too well about that) and the forecast will change after all about 20 times between now and then. I do kinda hope this one sticks though...............

85 Will get you some skin brother! PHins crossed! We load at 11, leave at noon, as of now.................about half hour to 45 minutes to Blossom. They don't want people like us hanging outside the gate, we are the people our parents warned us about.

I posted this in the Ticketing thread as well but I have a Premium Parking pass I need to sell because I'm taking the bus. Paid $33.50 for it($30 + $3.50 fees). PM me and make me an offer. Willing to sell for less than face if needed. They are sold out online and IF they offer them day of show you're looking at $30 cash. Paved Parking(grass lots are the free ones and may be muddy) and an easy walk to venue entrance.

As far as the cops go, I've also heard the horror stories from years past (including hiding in trees watching people to make sure they follow rules), HOWEVER in both 2011 and 2014(especially 2014) I found them to be pretty easygoing and lenient. I'd probably throw my drink in a cup just to be safe and don't be an a$$hole and there should be no issues.

This is our first time for Cleveland. We have one of those shower tents that we use for a bathroom. Are they going to give us an issue with this? They've been allowed at some places and not at others. Thanks!

Honestly don't know answer to that one. I'd check the Day of Show Info page on Live Nation's website sometime next week as they will likely list what's allowed and not allowed.
