made sure the confirmation page was correct, printed & pinned to the calender.
show starts after dark..says 8:30pm on ticket but more like 8:50pm by the time everyone got to their seats. Show was over at 10:50pm -1 intermission that is supposed to be 15 minutes, but more like 25.
what do you wear? what can you bring? i bet the pictures were awesome, huh?
wear: whatever..really. people were in jeans to nicer dress. it gets chilly once the sun goes down so make sure to dress warm or bring a blanket. my attire: new long skirt from old navy [thanks D&C!], tank, cowl...
then i added to increase maximum warmth outage. black socks worked since it was nitetime; long skirt & they really could have been tights to anyone looking. big, black shawl over top; bought at ross for J&S's wedding years ago but never out of date & doubles as a blanket. on my hands i wore the knitted hand warmers in blue my mom made for me last year; they cover just your hands so they are great when it's not super cold. my russian style furry hat i brought, but left in the car which was fine.
pictures...pleaseNO WAY. they are photo nazis there. it was funny to see the ushers inaction. when a flash went off [only a few times] they were on it. either the person has to delete the picture or give them the film depending on the type of camera. you could probably sneak a couple pics without a flash, but it wouldn't even be worth it. better to enjoy the show & make mental postcards.
parking...i knew this would be an issue so being the good mastermind i am, i insisted we scout the location on saturday nite. only about 15 minutes down the 101 so it was fun. we checked out the parking lots, shuttle stops, street parking & came home. we had seen a couple open street spots super close to the entrance right around showtime on saturday, so we hoped that might happen on the less crowded sunday nite. guess what...we found a super close spot for free -street parking is great since anytime after 7pm it's free..so we didn't pay to park, have to walk far or deal with a shuttle. getting out was a piece of cake..we were on the 101 before most of the patrons had made it across the street to the parking lots.
