It is right by the venue! Great hotel too; Iíve stayed there once and the staff there is fantastic. You have The BOB right between you and Van Andel; their beer is pretty good but I would make the trek over to Founderís. Founderís has kinda become a tourist-y spot but their beer is still incredible. A couple other faves of mine would be The Mitten Brewing Co and Brewery Vivant.

    Courtyard directly connects to the van Andel actually! Founders is definitely popular. Thereís a meet up at studio park which is behind van Andel (outside).

    Lots of restaurantsÖ
    Hopcat, Stellaís, Grand Rapids brewing company, peppinos..

    After the show thereís always Zs with the best Buffalo chicken egg rolls!

    Youíre right. I thought they started charging on Saturday somewhat recently but I see the enforcement hours are still Monday-Friday 8a-6p.

    So yeah, plenty of free street parking will be available around the arena.

    The GVSU lots, directly across the River on Fulton, are also free on the weekend.

    My buddy and I are heading to this show from Chicago, canít wait.

    Been to GR for work before, a lot of it is walkable especially in the area where the arena is located.

    Has anyone found reasonably priced places to stay walking distance to the venue? Iím coming into town by myself and starting to second guess going at all since my friend who was going to join had to back out. Donít really want to pay through the nose or have a long ass distance to drive to and from the show, if I decide to make the trek.

    Also found this :

    METERED STREET PARKING

    The City of Grand Rapids enforces parking meters Monday through Friday, 8am-6pm. Unless marked otherwise, the meters are free after 6pm.


    so it is Free parking on Sat/Sun. What is parking like near the venue? Is there a good place to park that allows easy access out ? I don't mind walking 5 minutes to my car if it helps save leaving concert headache time lol

    "Fully vaccinated" in this case just means "two doses of Pfizer and/or Moderna" and/or "one dose of J&J" right?

    I just wanted to make sure that third doses weren't required if you got Pfizer/Moderna.

    Negative test within 48 hours also accepted.

    You are correct.

    The booster is really just for some special populations so I can't imagine that they will ever be required.

    I'm getting a booster tomorrow. BMI labels me "obese," and having kids, older parents, and getting into the winter season, though, I figured it couldn't hurt.

    Curious how they'll handle vaccination status going into next summer. Efficacy is obviously going to start dwindling for those without boosters, so either they go all in on boosters/annual shots or they scrap the requirement.

    Thank you everyone for the intel! This is going to be SO awesome.

    This'll be my first show since 5.22.18—and my first show with my WIFE—*and* it's our 1-year wedding anniversary that night! And yeah this is possibly the most intimate venue I've ever seen them in. I can't contain the excitement!

    Does anyone know if they do testing onsite? I am vaccinated, but I have people with me that are going the testing route...

    Edit: Testing onsite, or around the area. I'm sure they've had other shows/concerts that need this.

    Was there for Blake Shelton a couple weeks ago and they did right outside the entrance! I thought I saw something on a live nation email as well recently.
