OK, I have a dilemma, but a good one.  I have two separate pairs of tickets and not sure which would be best:

A:  117, row B, seats closer to 116 than 118 but not much.

B:  Floor C, Row 9, close to aisle running next to B.

Anyone familiar with the venue have any idea which may be better and why?

I would take option B.

Actually went with option A since I have been on the floor for most of the shows I have been to recently.

Traveling in to St. Louie to catch the show. Any decisions been made on a pre-show party location? I could not see any via the post. FYI - I found, via another network, where some folks are planning a get together if a location is needed?

Znowdog.......I, my husband and a very good friend would like to meet up before the show in St. Louis!!!! I noticed that surprisingly, no one has planned any pre-show gatherings or meet-ups for St. Louis, and it is getting late. After all, as we all know, the concert in St. Louis is less than two weeks away!!!!! Anyway, I'd really like to meet other Rush fans at a pre-show party or meet-up several hours before the concert. Unfortunately, I'm not from the St. Louis area, neither is my friend. If you know anyone from the St. Louis area who would like to meet for a gathering prior to the show, would you please PM me. If anyone else knows of any arrangements for a pre-show gathering, please PM me, also, or post the arrangements here. I really appreciate this.....THANK YOU!!!!  applaudit.gif  new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

I'm driving in and also not very familiar with St. Louis.  Just name the place and I'll GPS it and try to be there.

The hotels by the airport are a lot cheaper if you are going.  It's around 10 to 12 miles away, but I got a good room and can bring my dogs for only a 25 dollar pet fee.  Too bad they can't come to the show, but I don't think I can pass off two tiny Yorkies as service dogs.  See y'all there.

Hey all, an STL native here, looking forward to a great time both at the show and beforehand! Wanted to let you all know that there's going be a nice preshow gathering at the Schlafly Tap Room, 2100 Locust Street, a few blocks from the venue. I know of several local folks, as well as some out-of-towners from the Rush Tour Forum who'll be there. Cool atmosphere and a great selection of micro & hand-crafted beers to choose from. Party starts around 4-4:30ish, so come on down and have some fun! Anybody have any questions, whether about the party or other local stuff, let me know. :-)

Sounds like the place to be.  All you had to do was say "micro-brew".

Space Ghost - I have been taking part in the thread where the Schlafly suggestion was made by rushfreak. I sent him a message to see if they were going to be able to get some tables reserved together for us. Cause I contacted Schlafly and they said first come first serve and no reservations. I have not received a reply. Do you know if anyone has some pull there and will be able to get us a section to hang out?

Let's just man up and claim an area.  Rush fans are known for their rugged masculinity.  I'll put my wife in front of us and we'll trust her to get us a room.   bolt.gif

I was able to do a 'recon mission' to check out the place yesterday, and they have all sorts of room there, both inside and out. We'll get there around 4:00 before the main dinner/bar rush (no pun intended), and stake out a section or two for us to hang and get silly. The Cardinals are out of town that weekend, as well, leaving Rush the only real downtown event that day. I think we're in good shape. :-)

Parking - Schlafly has a sizable lot which I believe is free to patrons. To walk from there to Scottrade would take about 10-15 min. At the venue itself, there's a large garage that costs around 10 bucks (I think), and there are other lots nearby that may be cheaper.
