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!!!! http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/applaudit.gif http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/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?

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.

Thanks, guys, for letting me know about these pre-show meet-up arrangements!!!!! http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/applaudit.gif http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/cheer.gif http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/common001.gif http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/trink39.gif I trust that Schlafly's has a variety of dishes to feast on, 'cause we'll probably be fairly hungry. http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif I'll check out the Schafly's link above. If everyone agrees on Schafly's, then I, my husband and a good friend will probably plan on meeting you guys there, most likely around 4:30 pm. http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/trink39.gif

To add on to what SpaceGhost said, everyone should try to be there around 4:00 PM. In an email Schlafly's said they do not take reservations and cannot guarantee putting us all together. They will do there best to get us all togehter, but there is no "saving seats" in the lunch room. However I called them tonight and they said if everyone shows up around 4:00, they think we should have our run to "assume control"of the tables in the NORTH bar. It is a full bar and full food service will be available in there.

 

Dr B-Song: Look forward to meeting you since you did not make it to the Nashville pre party.

I should have been there. My "friends" that I sacrificed floor seats for didn't show up at Broadway Brew House that night and when we got to our less than desirable upper section seats they had sold them to strangers.

 

I'm gettin' more pumped every day and driving my wife crazy! This time next week we'll be on the road. It's only about a 4 or 5 hour drive from Nashville, but she'll probably have to chain me to the bed to prevent me from leaving at 6 am.

Hello Everybody!

Is Anybody staying at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in downtown?

I'll be in lower bowl 107, sec EE.

I'll be making a very early headlong flight back to N'Awlins Sunday morning in time for the Kansas City game.

See Y'all...take care.

Walk up to the highway and stick your thumb out while holding a big RUSH sign. I'll wave when I go by. http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif

If it's like a typical Saturday, I agree that the bar in the back should be virtually empty at 4pm. There's a ton of space back there and I highly doubt we'll be filling the place up. Now, we may have to make trips into the main bar area because I'm not sure they have wait service back in that bar at that hour.

 

So...I hope to see a lot of you there!! http://www.therushforum.com/html/emoticons/2.gif
