In case you haven't heard we are planning to converge on the Newport Jazz Festival this year, August 11-12. We've got a good sized group going already but there's always room for more and more importantly we need to firm up plans for lodging and group get-togethers.
This world-class event demands advance planning and being summer and all we've been a bit lax - but I don't think it's too late to pull it together in style.
So - if you haven't already signed up, please do so.
I haven't heard from folks per their lodging plans so if you want to exercise combined buying power we have a rental agent just waiting for a commitment. This will be cheaper and more fun than individual lodging, but of course do what is most comfortable to your budget and preferences.
Many are driving in and out for the day but many are staying the weekend. Staying has it's benefits - the waterfront is lively at night.
So - if you want to get in on a rental, let me know now.
The tickets can be purchase per show or for general admission. Most have gone with general admission and it's not a bad time to get them early. General admission makes it easy to sit together without ticket numbers and such to worry about and the concerts are held in the areas fine waterfront parks.
So - if you haven't already purchased a ticket, now is a good time.
Next - I will post a bunch of suggestions for brunches, nightlife, etc.
I have a feeling this is going to be an unforgettable weekend!
