So you can surf the web while Al performs?

Real talk:

#1 I'm concerned about getting lost trying to find my seats
#2 I'm concerned about getting lost on the way to the busses if that's gonna happen
#3 I'm VERY concerned with my niece's obsession with touching Al's hair :blink:

Not sure if I'll be there in time, but are there any pre-show meetups planned tomorrow? if so, where?

there's a thai food place or something but i'm not sure that's good place to go before a concert

if you google "restaurants near the colonial theater keene NH" there's a bunch of places within walking distance of the theater itself

There are plenty of places within walking distance of the theater. If you're looking for pizza, Ramunto's (http://ramuntos.com/location/keene-nh-2" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) has some of the best in the city. Thai Garden (http://www.thethaigardengroup.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) is also quite good if that's your thing. If you're interested in Mexican, Margarita's (http://www.margs.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) has texmex fare, while Pedraza's (http://www.pedrazasmexicanrestaurant.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) serves more traditional Mexican. All of these are within walking distance of the venue (even if we aren't graced with decent weather).

For those asking about wifi, I'm not actually sure about the theater itself, but Brewbakers (http://brewbakerskeene.com/about" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) is right next door and they might have wifi access for customers. They also serve a pretty decent cup of coffee.

For those of you who are coming to the city for the first time, I'd recommend you take a short walk from the venue to check out Main Street and the common. We have apparently "the widest paved Main St in the world" (http://www.flickr.com/photos/keenepubli ... 514072280/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) and you may even recognize us from the 'old town' scenes in Jumanji. (The "Parris Shoes" sign is still painted on one of our buildings. There has never been a Parris Shoes factory in Keene, or anywhere else for that matter.)

Keene's town common (plus some CGI): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qUUOraSps0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

My weekend is a bit busy between last night's show in Lebanon and my niece's graduation tomorrow, so I'll be busy with family before the show, but I hope to see all of you there! :w

my dad and I should be rolling in around.... let's say between 6:00PM and 6:30PM. I'll be wearing a red Millennium Falcon tshirt with the 90's looking hair (seriously, its really poofy right now because of the reminents of Tropical Storm Andrea) and I'll also be wearing these shoes.

They're really bright and kinda stick out to me so it might be easy to find me. That and I'll be with the guy (my dad) with a really white-ish beard that looks like either (these are the things people have told my dad he looks like with the beard) a Keebler elf, an Amish guy, Santa, and/or the Gordon's Fisherman.

see ya soon!

Fantastic time!

Sorry if anyone felt like I ditched them, but I didn't want to lose my own party :lol:

Concord show was probably better, but this one was a better experience for me since I could get in to it more knowing "Hey....I've done this....I know what's going on"

Coffee shop was Brewbaker (Right next to the theater). I know this for a fact because I was there before the show to use the bathroom and as I was walking out, a man walked in, and I did a doubletake - it was Steve :lol: (Second show in a row I didn't specifically meet him and I still had a weird, random encounter with him...Patterns!)

Did the wait by the bus thing, and we all got to say hi, and went home happy
