I don't go to St. Paul often, is there a decent bar near the Xcel Energy Center?  A meet up would be cool.

Cossetta's Italian Market & Pizzeria is only 2 blocks away.   It is always a good place before any show.  There is also another joint  cool10.gif  a block down also, just can not remeber the name.  Either place would be good.

That sounds like a cool idea, do they have good food (and a bar)?

They do have good food.  Not a bar but they do sell berr.   O'Garas is a half block down which might be a better place.  Good little Irish bar that has been around forever.

I'm actually not sure yet.. my friend who lives there is getting tickets and he's waiting to see if he can score good seats from a broker closer to the show, on the cheap.

All I know right now is that I will be there.

Depends,

  I have 2 sets of tickets, 2 for the 23rd row and 2 for 14th row both sets on Alex's  side.  I'll use the 14th row but, chances are the other set will be sold shortly.

31st Row, Alex's side.  Not that great of seats, but way better than last time, when I was in the farthest section possible from the stage.  Where exactly is 31st row?  Is it closer to the back of the floor or more in the middle near the sound guys?

  31st row is about half way back.  7 more rows and there is the max table there, but you are right by the main area that separates the front from the back of the main floor.

O-Gara's sounds good... I'm flying solo this year and wouldn't mind a few beers with some other concert goers before hand. trink38.gif

I'm actually take off a 1/2 day to get there early, relax and get pumped up for it.  

Alex side, first section on LL, row 4..!!!

If the Wild should advance to the Stanley Cup finals, would that effect the date of the concert? I wouldn't mind seeing them go all the way, but I'm a much bigger Rush fan than a hockey fan. I'm going to be there either way, but May 22nd would be much more convenient.

you do not have to worry about that i do like the wild but the team is to beat up to make it that far, the next game that they play will unfortunatly be their last of the season

Yeah, the Wild just dropped it to the Avalanche 4-2. doh.gif  It was more of a curiosity as to what would happen I guess.

Less than 1 month until the show!  I still haven't received my ticket in the mail yet, it should be here around the 12th of May.

So, the meetup plan is O'Gara's?  How will we find each other?

Not many of us like that out there..??

Just tracked my ticket online, it left Kentucky at 3AM, so it should be here tomorrow or Monday.  Most likely Monday since I don't think UPS delivers on Sunday.

Nope, UPS does not deliver on Sunday.  Mine left about the same time as yours.  So if you choose 2nd day air they will be here Monday.  Damn the week is starting off to a good start...  653.gif
