No tail-gating allowed in parking lot. It is a $25 pay and post lot. There should be a party at the side venue called Echo Beach.

I'm still hoping for an October concert in Vegas Living in BC I'd rather suffer the exchange rate for 5 nights in Vegas than go to Toronto. Shorter flight. I'm sure it will be fun for those going.

I will surely be going as there is a fellow Toronto Maplereefer who will be celebrating his 100th concert :o that day. He was wondering where is was going to be. He hoped for Key West last Nov. at MOTM, that didn't happen. He has his tickets for Paris, so the thought it would be then. Love the fact that we get to share it with a great guy like Derek.

Wife and I are coming from Calgary! Can someone post more information about Echo Beach (cost?, location?, etc?) and pre-party activities?

The grounds of the former Ontario Place are undergoing changes, so it's a bit different than previous years there. Echo Beach (on the grounds and right beside Budweiser Stage) is a smaller concert / event venue. It's not a bar / restaurant that is open all of the time and has to be rented out - typically to promoters, etc, who have to arrange their own food, beverage, etc.
We (the Toronto Maple Reefers Parrothead Club) are working on what we might be able to arrange for the day of concert.
When known and firmed up, we'll be posting on our website www.maplereefers.ca
I'll also post on here for all BN'ers, and anyone on here who is going make sure to seek me out. I've met up with many BN'ers over the years from both North and South of Disorder, and have great times tailgating, etc. together.
For any going to Cinci, I'll be there as well.

There isn't a Margaritaville in Toronto, but Buffett's name and face can be found at Jimmy's Coffee, including this location at Gerrrad St. W and Laplante Ave.

Thanks for the info on echo beach. We will keep an eye on the Maplereefers site to see what party activities are in the works. We are members of the Calgary PH club. With Vancouver just announced we will likely see Jimmy twice this year. If they announce another Vegas date maybe we will make it 3....

Pre-concert party plans are shaping up.

We've booked Charlie Imes (who has played Meeting of the Minds & more) and for those of us going to Cincy this year, he's also playing at the tailgate there. http://charlieimes.com
Further details to follow, and will also go up on our website http://www.maplereefers.ca/

Get the Caesar's ready.. just found out I'm off that weekend so I MAY make the road trip up from Pittsburgh. Lawn tickets are down to $17 on Stubhub. :o

Haven't been to downtown Toronto since probably the late-80s.. would likely stay at the Sheraton. I assume Uber is probably the easiest way to get around town?

Yes. Plenty of Uber to get around if you aren't brave enough to try public transit.
Dumb and drunk as I was, you know I would do it all again.
