BB King at Fox Theater in Oakland 2/28 - carpool from Ocean Beach

Hi all - Teena is the organizer for this meetup.  Her message is below.

Here is Teena's message:

---------------------------------

Ok! I know it's not near Ocean Beach, but I am! Lol. I'm willing to carpool/drive (we can split parking!) or Bart it to the Fox Theater from OB. If you're interested, let me know so we can coordinate out tickets together. You can email directly on my profile. So excited to see one of the legends! :-) Teena

    Cool! So glad you guys had a great time. If it was a weekend, I would have joined you, esp since the tix were cheaper than I thought. Teena - keep posting music meetups!

    AND, the mayor of Oakland surprised him by giving him the key to the city! It was so very exciting, history-making and emotional! :-)

    Okay! Showtime tomorrow! I am emailing those who rsvp'd YES directly more details/reminders. For any last minute joiners, we will be doing a pre-show dinner/drinks @ Bay Fung Tong Tea House Restaurant at 630p. Leave for the will call line at 7:30p-ish and show @ 8p. You can find me by my either wearing or carrying my green, hawaiian ribbon lei! Come join us to see the legendary King of Blues! :-)

    Hi, everybody! The rsvp's keep on changing and based on experienced organizers (I'm a newbie), they suggest that everyone buys their own ticket and then meetup for dinner or drinks prior to the show. So, here's a link for the tickets:
    http://www.thefoxoakland.com/

    And, here's a suggestion for dinner before the show (3minute walk from theater and very close to Bart station):

    Sorry for any confusion! I hope to get better with this organizing on meetup! So, just update your RSVP and then I can make reservations for 630p.

    For any who want to carpool and share parking & toll fees, I'm leaving from Outer Sunset after 430p up till 5p, at latest. Not looking forward to bridge rush hour traffic! :-). Thanks for understanding everyone! Don't forget to update your RSVP! Thanks!,

    The count right now is at 6 tickets.  To get us to sit together, the best available is already the balcony Reserved seating, row p, seats 6-16 at $56per person.  Would that be a problem for you two? Teena

    If all else fails, maybe we can meetup earlier for dinner and then head to the theater and to our own seats.  your thoughts?

      Awesome! I'm wondering that myself! Lol. Okay, let me know what works best- honor system here, I can buy them online and then everyone bring cash (exact change would be awesome)? Or, I have a PayPal account and you can deposit directly? Ideally, once the tix confirmation comes in I can easily email your seat ticket to you... Or we can meet up today or this weekend at the Merced library (need Internet & printer) and we can the exchange there. I'm flex either way. Let me know your preference. Thoughts/ suggestions?

      I'm happy to bring cash along if that works for you - exact change :) and you can email my ticket confirmation to me?

    Hi, everybody! I'm hoping to get an idea of how many people need tixs and then try to get seats together. If need be, I can get the tickets and then get reimbursed either by cash or PayPal. Honor system for any last minute cancellations for full payment. Or, for those who already got tixs we can just try to meetupnearlier for dinner at a nearby place to the theater. I'm flex.

    oh wow this would be incredible. Just hesitating a little at the price, but like you said so worth it to see an absolute legend. I'm only in the city for a couple of months and this feels like one of those unmissable opportunities!
