    More notes for people who might go some other time: The whole complex has no outside bathrooms. The bathrooms inside the theatre are upstairs, off the theatre lobby (once they decide to open the doors and let people in). Two crowds form, once at the doors to the theatre lobby and once at the doors to the internal theatre, because they wait to open these. If you wished to purchase wine in the lobby, you cannot take it into the theatre, just the lobby. There is an upstairs balcony section. We were handed tickets as we went in, hence, they knew that when the tickets ran out at the lobby door, the theatre would be full.

    The two ladies (Dee and Beth) that I met at the theatre doors were very nice and we sat together in the concert. The seats filled very fast: I was happy we went early and to the back door, as Merl said. I look forward to meeting other people, some other time!

      Lani, I arrived around 6:20 it was packed, I was at work up to leaving for the concert not at a HR, (I wish). Copy paste/from below:It was the most crowded I've seen yet. I held up the meetup sign up high around in the lobby and in the theatre & some peeps saw it/me. It's should be way easier to find me than me find all of you. As I said I would be, I was in the lobby by the rear doors and ready to enter the theatre when doors open at 6:30. After getting seated I came back out but as I had posted earlier, Peeps who can't find me come down to the front of theatre and look as I had managed to save a few seats, but had to let them go due to the crowd. I hope everyone who managed to get in, enjoyed the fabulous performance and lets the Center know how much they appreciated a free concert of this caliber.

    Really want to go but I'm still sick. Sorry!

    April 3, 2013

    • Meryl

      Jantima, Hope you're feeling better and I was looking forward to seeing you again. It was packed and they had to turn peeps away. The early bird got the worm. Thanks so much for sending me a personal email letting me know you couldn't make it. Hope to see you soon.

      Glad you got in! Wasn't it a great performance?

      April 4, 2013

  • Alan

    Yes, it was incredible! The music was played was Wow! The dancing was fantastic, all GREAT. Front row seats were easy to get if you got there a little early, yet an audio speaker was kind of in my way. Thanks Meryl, thought I missed you at 1st.

    Meryl, what the heck?! They're sold out and not letting ppl in!

    April 3, 2013

    • Meryl

      I didn't know they filled up for this performance too. They posted on FB they had to turn away peeps from the first performance earlier. I'm sorry you didn't get in.

  • Elizabeth

    Couldn't get in! was packed!

    April 3, 2013

    • Meryl

      Bummer I wish you could have gotten in, it was really great, the best performance they've had yet.

      April 3, 2013

  • Meryl

    I saw a notice on FB that the 4 P.M. was over filled and they suggested getting there early. I took off 3 hours early from work to host this event. It was the most crowded I've seen yet. I held up the meetup sign around in the lobby and in the theatre & some peeps saw it/me. The performance exceeded my expectations. There was a flutist, a singer & Flamenco dancer and the show was both relaxing & exhilarating. Class act, Fantastico! Sorry if there were some that missed it due to concert hall being filled to capacity.

    It was SO much better than I expected!

    Notice FaceBook: Today's 4:00 WOW First Wednesdays concert with Spanish Flamenco guitarist, David de Alva, was full by 3:30! We apologize to all the folks we had to turn away, but hopefully we'll see you at the next show. And if you're planning on attending the 7:00 show, we recommend getting here early!

    April 3, 2013

  • Meryl

    Hey Peeps, Check in and try and let me know you arrived & are present and accounted for. I've got a Meetup Sign. It's way easier to find me than me find all of you. Let me know you're with the No Co Singles & Friends Group.
    I'm dual hosting for SD Boomers as well so may be about total of 50 with both groups!
    I'll be in the lobby by the rear doors and ready to enter the theatre when doors open at 6:30. After I'm seated I can see about going out to look for more peeps. I'm going to try for front row center or as close as I can get.
    If you arrive late walk up to the front of the theatre and look for me & group. We can't technically reserve seats, but we can try covering for a few extra.
    Concert runs for an hour or maybe a little more.
    Make sure you let the Center know you appreciate these free concert events.
    Afterwards we can go over to Old Escondido on Grand Av, (2 blocks away) to a local wine bar or pub for some light refreshments and libations. See you there!

    Look for me with MeetUp sign at a table inside the Lobby furthermost from the front door. I'll be there by 6:30 so don't be late. If you get there late we'll try to hold a few seats, look for me along the front couple of rows in theatre.
