=================================

Pre-Show Hangout!

SOFA SF http://www.sofasf.com

Place is: 139 8th St (between Natoma St & Minna St), Right below Bossa Nova. Happy Hour is actually 5 - 6:30PM.

* Pre-meet location updated to a closer venue, and after passing through the Civic Ctr area (on Market) and seeing quite a bit of "activity" around.

================================

Parking/Transport/Area

Theater is right outside the BART Civic Center Station. If driving, park at the meters (should be free in the evening) around SOMA area b/t Mission & Folsom. Just be careful not to leave stuff laying out in your car.

This is the Tenderloin Area, although it'll still be bright out before the show starts. Act accordingly

================================

I'll send additional reminders, my phone number, my life savings & everything else to all that are committed to going (i.e. RSVP). Hopefully, coordination goes somewhat smoothly!

Message me or post to event for questions!!

Cheers!!

    I think it was awesome because I planned it...haha! No seriously, the folks that went were awesome and the show was entertaining. SOFA (i.e. Bossa Nova) was a nice speakeasy place to chill and I felt everything went smoothly despite the money handling issues.

    I'm standing in line for the Rush Seats...look for my moose head. Hopefully, I get good seats...line is a bit long.

    Thanks Mark! I'll meet you guys at the Sofa lounge. There were a few tix yesterday with "limited" view, which were literally adjacent to the full priced ones, so I'm guessing if anybody goes for these they'll likely not see a few strands of hair while the actors enter and leave the stage (probably more a full-disclosure liability thing for the theater). Or, I hope so.... :) All balcony seats were sold out... :(

    Sounds good Ani! I sent a reminder to all who RSVP'd! It has my Google Voice Number should ppl have questions and/or concerns. See you all tonight.

    I bought a $50 ticket online...look forward to meeting everyone tomorrow at the pre-meetup spot! :)
    ~Special thanks to Mark for organizing!!

    Yeah...sorry guys. This is still going down but I'll take Leeman's suggestion. Let's just meet earlier that day & buy tickets. I'm worried about money exchanges. If ppl want, they can also come before 6PM to buy rush seats....they're not always in bad spots. We also get grub or drinks right before...I'll look for some spots and post! Cheers!

  • Leeman Now

    I vote for day of tix..reasoning being Thurs July 5 is day after a major holiday and I'd suspect the lineup would be small (or Last min StubHub options)

    June 21, 2012

  • Mark C

    Hmm...I just noticed when you buy online, they add some $10 per ticket fee, plus $5 per order. WTH!! Well, let me know if you guys want to buy tix on the day (incl rush seats) otherwise expect a WePay request payment tomorrow! Thanks all!!!

    Not yet...I'm trying to figure out the best way to manage this. I think I'll go with Kyle's idea and try to see if ppl are willing to pre-pay me to reserve balcony seats. I can reserve in blocks of two...so we can reserve for ppl coming last minute. If it's not a full house, we can also all move to closer, central seats. I'll send something out tonight or tomorrow to all listed and post here! Hope everyone can go!!! TY Kyle for your input!

    Hey Mark - did you already buy tickets for the group? I would love to join as well

    My girlfriend and I ended up doing rush tickets on Sunday; we showed up about an hour and a half early and were 2nd in line. The seats were in the very front row, and it was hard to see a lot of the action over the speakers at the stage edge. The show was fun, but I'd recommend pre purchasing balcony tickets.

    3 Options
    1.) Rush Tix - Some ppl come early, stand in line 5:45. Each person can get up to 2 Orch seats - $25 each. If ppl are willing to stand in line w/ me, we can buy multi. seats. Pre-pay me, I'll refund if I don't get tix (e.g. sold out) or simply buy balcony seats. I heard it wasn't hard to score seats!
    2.) Pre-Buy Balcony Seats - $31/each...ensure we're all together. Send me $$$ by due date, then I'll purchase seats.
    3.) Tix day of event! Meet in front of theater & decide!!

    How does everyone want to do this? I'm willing to help buy tickets so we can sit as a group, but definitely need the $$$ first (probably can set up a WePay.com or Paypal.com to set it up).
