Me and my Dad will be hanging out at the Wachovia Center parking lot with our acoustics. He joked that we should bring some honeydew.  laugh.gif Our tickets should be arriving today. We're in section 105. 9th row. See you all there.  bekloppt.gif  I might not know what all of you look like. We should where name tags with our TRF indentity on them.  laugh.gif

If you see the yellow Lotus with the Rush sticker in the window (ala pic) come over! That will be our group, although I am the only one on TRF AFAIK.

So, where will you be parking?  When do you plan to arrive?

Did anyone confirm a meeting spot at a restaurant?  Is there another thread specific to that subject?

Sorry, at Yesfans.com we organize these things to the nines and it ends up being almost as fun as the shows themselves!

Not sure yet. I was going to pick up a VIP parking ticket from a local guy here, but if people are meeting beforehand then we should park all together.

Therefore...let's meet somewhere! We have two cars of people leaving King of Prussia at around 4:30 so will be in the area in hopefully just under an hour given the time of day and the double concert scenario.

I suggested earlier a place south of the stadia on 95 as one guy was coming up from Baltimore, but he has yet to respond. Maybe something on Delaware Ave side could be better as we can get to the venue down Pattison and avoid 95 and Broad Street which will be probably be hell.

Thoughts?

I am travelling from the south as well, coming North on 95 from Delaware.  I can meet anywhere enroute to the place, but I am also concerned if there are multiple events that parking will become an issue if arrival is delayed.

On the other hand:
McFaddens is next to the Citizens Bank Park (Where the Phillies play ball).  It is close to the Wachovia Center and if you can park on the north side of the Center would be a good way to go.

Any other suggestions?

Soul, what, 5K?
Rush, 10K max.
Buffet, how many 30K+?

McFaddens will be crowded but doable with those big drums of beer, but the whole place is going to be jammed.

I believe the lots open at 4 or 430.

Yeah, I heard it was going to be crowded. I'll be leaving my house in NJ plenty early. I'll be with my son, so I can't party it up too much. Gotta drive a long way home too. I'm really psyched about the show.

I don't know the area so I have no suggestions. Just tell me where to go and I will try to tell my parents about it so we can go. I am in Section 102 Row 20 Seat 1,2, and 3

Echoes, I was thinking of during intermission you can come to me in 102 row 20 seats 1, 2 , and 3 and then we can talk and head over to Finding IT in front row section 2. Thoughts?

If we want to eat, we should make the decision soon. I have no idea what is near by so I can't contribute. Also, we should plan the parking if we want to meet.

Probably not going to want to go eat. We'll just be hanging out in the parking lot somewhere. We have a Dodge Neon with a Dallas Cowboys sticker on it if that helps.  tongue.gif   I've never been to this venue but my Dad has. It's about an hour and a half from me. That would be great to be in the front row, but how long can we stay there?  doh.gif Anyone know what the policy is on cameras?
