I am hoping to park in the mellon lower lot directly across for Consol, along the edge near the sidewalk.   I'll park there in the morning, as I can walk to the USX tower.   I will probably take a 1/2 day as well

More details to follow soon

Hey All -

Wassup Masked Dummer?! Sorry, got sidetracked yesterday and didn't get a post up here as soon as I hoped.

Yes you are indeed staying at my place. I'm 10 minutes / 5.8 miles from the venue, all freeway, in a neighborhood called Regent Square. General map Here.

Now the trick is finding a place as nice & cool as your international forum dinner was in Greektown in Detroit for the 2008 tour. Here, this is a new venue, directly across from where the Penguins hockey team's former home of Mellon Arena, and is almost "across the street" from downtown. It's almost on the Duquese University campus, though in other directions I wouldn't suggest walking alone, very far...

You fellow Yinzers know all this... just explaining for visitors...

Tailgating sounds like a blast, but the only challenge is if the cops / parking authority have other plans. Perhaps a combination of an early dinner, then tailgating, yields more "guaranteed" results?

And for you drinkers (so, not Ken... but me!), don't worry, they say Pittsburgh "is a drinking town with a football problem", so there's options. Over the Monongahela River is Carson Street, packed with bars, nice (and scummy) restaurants, coffee shops, you name it. Only challenge is getting between the two locations (mass transit isn't quite up to Seattle or Toronto standards here).

As for those with time to spare, there are a few nice resources indexed by the many colleges and universities in Pittsburgh. Ya see we're not about steel and mining as much anymore, and are big into Eds & Meds... one standout (among many) is Carnegie Mellon University.

Here's their guide to the city:
http://www.cmu.edu/student-life/pittsburgh.shtml

Also check out this:
http://www.visitpittsburgh.com/http://www.visitpittsburgh.com/

And as for transportation:
http://www.cmu.edu/student-life/getting-around-town.shtml

But as for where & when to meet before for a sit-down dinner... whaddya other locals think... if walking distance: Primanti Bros.? (not really a fan), something else in Market Square? Something on the Duq campus? Or on 5th or Penn Ave? It's a 29 minute walk to Fat Heads... Yikes!

More later...
Peace!
Bill

Hey Bill,  local lifetime Yinzer here.  

I can offer up my tailagate area to any and all intereseted, but I won't be deviating from my plans at all.  I am on a <insert rush song title> "Mission"

If anyone doesnt already know, I am in a Rush tribute band in Pittsburgh.  Ironcally, there is a 2nd Rush Tribute band in Pittsburgh as well.  

We are uniting together for a once in a lifetime "Rush Fest" show which is scheduled for Oct 2nd, 2010 (2 weeks after the Rush show).   Our mission, to play songs that RUSH themselves won't play or haven't played in a very long time.  ie: Hemispheres, Countdown, Jacobs Ladder, The Analog Kid....  And will features such classice LP's in there entireties such as Moving Pictures, Permanent Waves, Hemispheres, A Farewell to Kings....  And most songs from Signals and Grace Under Pressure


My sole mission will be promoting this event by blasting our "commercial" over my PA at the tailgate and passing out flyers to my exact target market (rush fans attending the show)

If anyone wants to hang out, pound some irons (pittsburgese for drink beer), verbally promote this event to passers by, and pass out flyers I would greatly appreciate your support

Or just stop by and say hello.   bekloppt.gif

I have 4 tickets in section 110, Row K, Seats 5,6,7,8   $75 each ticket

I have 4 tickets in section 113 club, Row G Seats 3,4,5,6 (these are club level seats) $150 each ticket

I have 2 tickets in section 113 club, Row F, Seat 8,9 (these are club level seats) $150 each ticket

i might be interested in the Row F seats in the club but those tickets on ticketmaster only cost $107. there where no tickets in excess of that amount. the section 110 seats you are selling are at face or slightly below. if you where willing to sell at face, please send me an email. i got floor seats in section 5 but looking for a little closer seat for better sound.  biggrin.gif

i am looking for a single seat (preferred) or a pair closer than floor 5, if anyone has any or knows of anyone, please advise. thanks.
