Unless tailgating is an option, let's find a local spot and make a plan.

*edit*-they're great seats if it was philips, but i think gwinnett puts the stage at the other end. Still good seats, though.

I went to gwinnett center and all the seats will have a good view. Its tiny.

Does anyone know anything close to the venue? We could plan a meet and greet before the show if there's anything worthwhile.

Posted this awhile back:

Went by the venue yesterday. The Holiday Inn - Gwinnett Center is in the same complex, towards I-85 (east), about 300 yards from the venue, so easy walk. We're staying there even though we live about 15 miles away.

The strip mall across the street (Sugarloaf PKWY) is anchored by a Kroger Grocery Store which is open until 1am, so it shouldn't be a problem parking there instead of the venue's parking lot, which is a nightmare getting out of (only 2-3 exits). Didn't see any signs threatening towing, and don't know how they'd tow someone out of a grocery store lot opened until 1am. There's a Frontera Mexican Grill in that strip mall for pre-show drinks/food. Nothing else really walkable other than a Vinny's NY Pizza & Italian Grill just to the west of the venue's parking lot. Everything else would be a drive I think.

There are tons of food/bar choices. It's a busy little area

I actually went to a show there Saturday and parked I'm the venue lot and it only took like 10 minutes to get out. But its personal preference.

For the gymnastics? I'm assuming that show didn't sell anywhere near as many tickets, and in particular, several thousand people on the floor.

I've been to several concerts there, stopped parking in the venue lot after several long waits out.

Which is the better bar - the Mex place or the Pizza place? We could plan a pre-meet there and drinks.

I've only been to the mexican place, but it's pretty good. I have to work until 4-ish and then somehow get a decent spot in the GA line, so I may not be able to meet up, which sucks.

For those who have been to the arena before, anyone been in section 108? I have two sets of tickets, 107 Row T and 108 Row H. I am not sure where the stage will end, but 108 seems like it might be too much at an angle.

Without having seat numbers so assuming middle of row, those two spots look to have a similar angle, so I'd go with the closer 108s

I'm in the same boat as you since I have GA tickets. I plan to be there pretty early, and I definitely won't want to lose my spot. I'm hoping to just bring a backpack cooler full of beer and hang out in line. Anyone is free to join me there!

I wish I could meet up with yall but ill be getting to the venue early in the AM, to make sure we have a good spot on the rail.

BTW:

Does the numbering typically go right to left ot left to right? I looked at a few charts of the arena and couldn't find anything with seat numbers. And I am not sure where the Warehouse seats are yet.

Numbers go left to right as you face the seats:

How do you think 108 row C will be? I believe there are 8 seats in the row.

I'm going to be audio taping and those could be great or they could be too far under the stack but still a great view of the stage.

So I may be looking to trade for something in 116 or 107 within the first 10 rows.

The Holiday inn and Hilton Garden that are walking are booked up it seems, any one staying elsewhere know if any of the nearby hotels are doing a shuttle. I remember in Alpharetta the Hyatt place had a bus to and from the amp there.

FYI for those in this thread, I am selling my Warehouse tickets here: http://antsmarching.org/forum/showthread.php?t=318110

I know it's a small chance, but if anyone with WH membership could scoop up a GA ticket, I could PayPal you the money.
