Mike and I were talking about that on the way home from GW. Are you guys coming in on Wednesday or day of concert? Anyone who is coming on Wednesday and could meet up early Thursday morning, that would be the best chance of ending up together. Jones Beach is a LOT more informal about the parking -- they don't guide you into rows. I am wondering if we should figure out who is staying where (on Wednesday), then we could meet up at whichever hotel has the most people interested in parking together. What say you, HOG? You are the resident LI expert ...

Also, people coming on Wednesday, want to meet up somewhere for dinner that night? There are some fun bars/restaurants on the Nautical Mile. Once again, HOG, any wisdom you have to offer is greatly appreciated!
In years past, everyone has usually met at the Best Western the morning of the show and caravaned in from there. The beach used to open at sunrise, then it was pushed back to either 9:00 or 10:00 because of cuts in the state park budget. I don't know what time they open now, I think it was 9:00 last year.

The Nautical Mile is a good idea. Otto's is a nice place. Bracco's is a couple of blocks away from Otto's and isn't too bad but if I remember correctly is attracts a younger crowd. I don't eat seafood but I've been to both places, they have burgers and chicken and stuff that I do eat.

The Hooters in Farmingdale reopened last year and isn't too far from the Best Western. :lol:
Excellent info, thanks HOG. As I recall we got there around 9 last year. I am pretty sure Mike and I stopped in to Otto's and Bracco's (sampling the local brews). :D
There's a place almost at the end of the Nautical Mile that opened in 2012 called Tropix On The Mile. I was never in the restaurant part but they have a really nice outdoor bar. This won't be any help to us but they used to have a pretty good reggae band on Sunday afternoons. The only thing I didn't like about it was some days it looked like it was full of Jersey Shore wannabes. :o

There's a good Italian restaurant right next to the Best Western, Ciao Baby. The food's pretty good but the one time I was there I thought it was overpriced for a family style restaurant on Long Island.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

We're on Wednesday. I just need to discuss departure time with the new boss. I'm hoping to leave NH by 11.

By the time we got tickets (YAY) the hotel where most seem to be staying was full.
Here's where we are staying (we have no idea how far we are from the venue)
Days Inn Long Island/Copiague in Copiague, New York
Looks like about 4 hours for us. We are both working until noon so we would be hitting the road around 1:30 ???
Arriving Wednesday, hopefully?
Yup Wednesday
