In Camden, people walk around with cans and bottles in koozies to keep it cold (a nice benefit on an August day). If your beer gets warm, then you did not drink it fast enough. I plan on getting to the lot around 11am. The concert's not until 8pm. It's all about pace my good man. All about pace. :p...

So you know we have been Eagles Season ticket holders for years and the cops are very cool down there. And they will be the same here. Just do not get out of hand and you will be fine. But understand what they see within the Eagles fan and the Buffett fan are two different things. The Buffett fan w...

I just hope it's not like Camden where the early arrivers have to park a mile away. I ordered two tailgate passes and hope they are worth it. Yes, I know I'll have to walk some, but still should get better parking than someone just pulling up that day. Aw, who cares as long as the cops don't hassle....

Philly Ticket Info

I sent an e-mail to New Era Tickets asking about shipping of tix and parking and this is the answer I received: "The tickets will be mailed out in April. The difference between the reserved parking and tailgate parking is that the reserved parking is closer, but the only lot you can tailgate in will...

The firstm time

Much like many of you, I only new a few hits, but that all changed in 1996. I was at a beach themed bar near us the night before Jimmy's show and asked for contestants to win tickets for the show. I volunteered and they announced a cheesburger eating contest. Whoever could finish four cheeseburgers ...

Just be careful, Jimmy's lawyers may want to charge you .05 every time you say or type that word. :wink:

Enjoy the weekend. :pirate:

Probably. Just checked again and they had pairs in the 400 level and singles in the 300 level.

Loose Tickets

I was just goofing around on neweratickets.com and they had a few single seats for Saturday's show. Choose Seats "1" and PL2 (Not "Side").

Figured I'd let you know before the scalpers get to them.

Now I've got it

[/quote]So what you are saying is that making money is bad??[/quote]

I think I've figured it out...

Making money is bad unless you are:

selling a $5 T-shirt for $18.95
selling a $2 cheesburger for $8.95 (but it is a great burger)
selling a $7 hat for $20

Is that right? :wink:

:lol: I don't care who y'are, that's funny, right there. And pretty much sums up my feelings to many of these hostile, holier- than-thou Parrotheads. I am a better than SYKBH fan, but can't name every song on evey album (CD if you will), but I'm still laid back. (And, I'm a Republican.) OK, now comm...

Gouging?

It's not as if "Home Depot" puts the plywood on an auction. On e-bay many people start off bids for $1.00 and the market carries the price sky high for what is essentially a luxury item. Don't have a degree in economics or finance, but if the market is "willing", not forced, to pay the higher price....

Re: Sorry

In fact, I have two to the Philly show on Saturday and plan on surprising a true fan in the parking lot. But, like a previous poster, I will ask some sort of trivia question. Any trivia question suggestions? I want to give it to a fan, but I don't want it to be too difficult, after all we were all ...

Sorry

I couldn't get out of work and I got to the show 15 minutes before show time and not being a "seasoned" seller wasn't sure what to do. I was not very phan phriendly back then and was the only JB fan I knew. I realize now it wasn't the best thing to do and would do it differently. In fact, I have two...

Revenge

OK, here's my story. A few years back, I got comp seats for a Saturday show, months in advance. Then I got an invite to a cousin's wedding and ended up buying tickets for the Thursday show instead. The night of the event (Thursday) a scalper tried to sell me tickets and I asked him if he was buying ...

Long Summer

Sure, it's gonna be a long summer but it gives us all something to look forward too. I have tix for Saturday and might try for Thursday. If any of you Holiday Inn folk are still around for Saturday's tailgate. My group and ColdWaterConch and his wife are meeting up and invite all to attend! And can ...

Hi everyone: My wife and I will be making the trek from the 'Burgh to Philly for the Sat show. We are looking for some people to tailgate with...perhaps share some grill space with us in exchange for jello shots, etc. We will be staying at the Holiday Inn Stadium...I imagine it will be full of fell...

Hopefully Sirius

I would hope RM goes to Sirius for two main reasons:

1) I like Howard Stern and have for 15 years

2) They also carry all NFL games, which if you've moved from your hometown, is great for catching the old team.

Also, I bought a bunch of stock at $5.25 a share and it needs to go up! :roll:
