We may have a winner right there.

It shows as Mojo Bar and Grill on Google maps but it is now Harry Buffalo.  Very close to the venue.

And about a block from Amway. Looks like a good menu with huge beer selection :hail: Hail Maltus!!

Oh Jeezz. Go to amwaycenter.com and click for the Magic Grill and up pops an ad for them with the "Rush Burger" special for Sunday starting at 4pm.

Here's my $0.02:
Hit Harry Buffalo's whenever we all get there in the afternoon, we're shooting for 3pm but it will probably be more like 4 (driving 6 hours plus working til 11 the night before). Then head over to the Magic Grill for the final pre-show, pre-show (then ROCK OUR ASSES OFF!!!). The peeps at rushisaband forum seemed to be leaning towards meeting at Magic Grill, but I bet its expensive as hades.

Whatcha think?

I had an early dinner at the Harry Buffalo in Cleveland before the show back in October and it was very decent.
I'll probably stop by the Orlando one on Sunday as long as I get all my biz in order in time:)

Sounds like a plan. Harrys round 4. Magic Grill a little later.

I am heading up 9:30AM, checking in, laying by the pool, sipping on some cold ones, meet-up, share a bunch of laughs...and then rock to the core!!

Now....Post concert party?

I unfortunately cannot attend to the festivities. I'm not even going to be leaving until about 7:10ish. I've got stuff to do that day.
Thankfully, I live like 2 miles away from the venue, so I can just bike there in about 10 minutes. Plus I get to save money. :P

This is me so you'll know who to look for :) (might be a few more grey's now since this was taken lol)

No idea on post-show party, I've never been to downtown Orlando. Harry's is open til 2:30am according to their facebook page, maybe head back there if it's a cool place and if it was packed with rush fans pre-show.

Those of you that live here know, Orlando is TINY. It really isn't that big.
Stay east of I-4 though, the west side is Ghetto area. Though right near the venue is okay (it's right on the other side of I-4)
If you look on a map, you'll see, it's split, Orlando.

This is for those of you that are staying here. Also, the 1-4 exit for Downtown, near the bus station is f***ing crowded. 5 lane road. 3 for off ramp, two for the road running beside LCS.

I can't remember if there IS an exit for Amway. But if there is (coming from the South) take that.

Also, those coming from the Tampa area, beware of the 408 area, especially around the 6pm mark. Lots of traffic.

Edit: Every coming off the freeway, get off at South street. You can only go one way on south street. West. That'll take you to the arena

Thanks for the detailed info D3strukt.  I'm going to drive into Orlando around noon so the traffic should be decent.  

Sorry to hear you won't be able to join the pre-show meet up.  We'll have a cold one for you!
