Probably around 4, perhaps a little bit earlier. Which is why when coupled with the other restrictions I won't be going. Like I've said before, management just killed the vibe for me at Stone Ridge/Nissan/Jiffy Lube. But I sincerely hope everyone that goes has a great time. I'm going to see Delbert McClinton that night at the Ram's Head in Annapolis. Maybe we can get him to cover Margaritaville! :D
It was too much tequila . . . . or not quite enough.

I guess we got spoiled by the years of lots opening at noon but :evil:
I swear, if it wasn't the closest venue to me that he plays, I'd never set foot there again [smilie=thumbdown.gif]

I agree 100%. I've done Virginia Beach twice and the Lube once. Neither are worth the effort I put forth for less than 4 hours of tailgating. I wish Jimmie would stop coming to Virginia altogether. I would love him to bring back Charlotte and Raleigh.

I saw every show here from when it opened through 2013. Stuck it out through storms, brutal heat, the tailgate ban and return of limited tailgating. But I decided enough was enough. It's just such a hassle now with the late opening parking lot, traffic being backed up on Wellington Road and beyond etc. There was a time I'd have put that parking lot right up there with any of the other "great" ones on the tour. But no more. If I just wanted to listen to Jimmy's music I'll turn on the concert on XM. But as much effort as I put into tailgating, coordinating with "Buffett friends" and all the other logistics I can't justify that energy for about 4 hours of tailgating. I know I sound like a spoiled kid but that's how I feel and it's just not the same for me anymore. I'm very fortunate in that I can travel to see Jimmy at other venues so I haven't really missed Stone Ridge/Nissan/Jiffy Lube that much. They killed the vibe for me. I truly hope everyone going has a great time but it's just not for me anymore.

seriously, question just overheard (spoken by cops): if you're drinking, make sure you have ID on you. The times they have changed.

Not more than 10 MINUTES after our bus parked, there was a cop walking literally inspecting each bus (checking tires, cargo, blinkers, windshield wipers, horn). I have never seen anything like that in my life. One of the buses a few down got a sticker slapped on it saying it was unfit for operation. No idea how(or if) those folks got home.

What a great show!

I will say I felt an odd vibe from the lot staff & cops. We got in the lot as it opened & were in A7. Had the normal walk by of the cops & tried to make friends by offering water & food but kinda felt brushed off. Ok, whatever.
Then once I set up the luge there was an angry lot lady that came by. I had a solo cup on the ladder that people were putting tips in. She said I was charging people for shots, it was against the law & if I didn't take it down she would have me arrested! :o
So of course I took the cup down but she continued to linger a few cars down watching us like a hawk. I shut it down for a lil while. She then walked past again & have us a dirty look :roll:
I started things up again & next thing I know 2 guys (I'm assuming mgmt) came up saying she told them to 'check on us'. They saw we weren't doing anything wrong, we gave them cheeseburgers & water & they told us to have fun & moved on.
Most definitely a different vibe than years past but we made the best of it & had a blast.
