i have section 204 4c 5c 6c are these seats any good. never been to smirnoff center before how early do you have to get there for sound check, and free parking in west parking lot..

Those seats are kind of middling.... You could have done worse for sure. The sound should be great there though.  I usually get to the W parking lot between 5-6, and the north entrance to it has always still been open and unattended. If you get there then you'll have no problem catching the soundcheck. Just watch for the tailgaters starting to gather near the fence. If you need more exact directions let me know and I'll try to PM them to you.

yes if you could pm. me directions it would be great.. i will be coming in from east texas hwy.20.. thanks in advance for the info

Damn! That's right by me.  ohmy.gif Let me consult the hubby, and maybe we can fire up the smoker for ribs n' brisket before hand. It's going to be MY birthday, so I can demand it!  1287.gif

And, rushbass... Euless is NOWHERE near the venue. But, it's not difficult to get to downtown from over here. I suggest we leave early, though.

NO WAY!!! The Dallas show is on your birthday?!?!?!  Too cool. The Toronto show is on my birthday, but me making it is about as likely as my getting a personal invitation from the boys. Since I'm coming from Kaufman Co., looks like I'll be tailgating it as usual.  Dang! First I miss the homemade pasta, now the brisket!  rage.gif Oh well, it's all about  2.gif anyway.

BTW, it was nice meeting you in VEGAS BABY!!!!!  Oh, and if brisket's what you want, never, never, never give up!  1287.gif

No kidding. To relay the story.. I was in the "smoking room" with Julie and I mentioned who was who and who was here... and I mentioned Weakly Criminal. She said, "Oh, he's in the next room." Excuse me? I literally flew into the next room, yelled, "OK, where is Weakly Criminal?" and a hand came up. "I'm Weakly Criminal." And, there he was, go figure, WC. Blah, blah blah and we all ended up going to gamble. Someone kicked a baby. Weakly lived up to his name and we all made it home OK. Yeah.

When we passed the Rush poster in the MGM, we did the "kick the baby!" thing. Look in the Vegas pictures thread. There's a picture of Ken doing it.

I stopped by Rob's Billiards in Euless to check out a different band I know of last night.  Nice size place--holds a lot of people so plenty of room to move around and party, etc. etc.

Only complaint is stage area is too small, but it'll do.

Venue is about a half hour to 40 minute drive from pre-party, all highway until you get to downtown Dallas heading into Fair Park.

Here's to a great show...hope to meet some of you there.

Yeah, it's a cool place. And, Rob is a Rush fan and always willing to accommodate us. Anthem is an excellent tribute band, too. It's going to be a great day!  trink39.gif

For those of you who live in the area and are in the know, what is the best entrance to get in? Also, what time will they open the gates? I will be there in 204/KK. Any info would help. I am so ready for this road trip from T-town.

Traffic shouldn't be an issue on a Saturday, but tune your radio to 1080 AM to get traffic reports every 10 minutes just in case there's a wreck or construction going on. It's only about 15-20 minutes from Rob's to the Smirnoff if all goes well.

IMO, the best way in and out is to use the west parking lot. If you're coming from Tulsa (beautiful town BTW) you can take 75 all the way past downtown where it turns into 45. Just past DWNTWN, take the MLK/175 exit and then left on MLK. MLK Blvd dead ends into the gates of Fair Park. Those gates will be open and unattended. Drive through those gates and take an immediate right. Follow that street south until you see the west parking lot on your front left. There should be an open gate there before about 5:30 or so, and you'll see us tailgaters waiting on the sound check. See ya there!
