OK...keeping w/ the S&A theme, here's the good news first:
If you have an electric grill and a generator, you will be very popular.
According to a girl answering the phone (and the Nissan Pavillion website) all grills except electric ones are banned. Somehow I doubt there will be accessible outlets. Now, I have been to three Rush shows there and grilled at two of them myself. I don't know if security will actually be telling everyone to put it out, confiscating grills, or amenable to delicious bribes. For those of you planning to cook, bring a grill you don't mind parting with. I have two small grills that I will be bringing.
Now, since we are planning on meeting at Giant, we can get some cold cuts and sandwich goodies as a back-up plan. I'm pretty sure cold cuts are allowed. And if the grilling is no problem, we can have sandwiches after the show while the lot and the access road clear. Eating is always better than sitting in traffic.
Incidentally, drinking before the show is also banned. However, I have had actual PW County cops tell me just to use a colored plastic cup. Hopefully the ridiculous grilling rule is the same.
On to business, with a gate time of 4:30, how about meeting HERE
at 4:00. That gives us time to grab a few things and drive to the pavillion by 4:30 easily. Just click on the map to enlarge it.
