I can deal with the singing out of tune. It's the predictability and repetition.

How strict are they on pre and post show gatherings?(curfew enforced?)

    My wife and I and a few other friends stayed at Snug Harbor camp ground last year, we had actually booked at a different campsite but after asking them about a shuttle service they told us no to look into snug harbor. its i wanna say $20 per person per night. if the dates fall on holiday weekend it will be a 3 night min stay. they also offer shuttle bus service which leaves at around 2ish and stayed at the venue and then you get brought back. think that was $40-45 per person. you could take a cooler chairs etc on the bus with all our valuables were left alone and secure. camp grounds has a small restaurant and bar nice patio off of that. no price increase on wood or ice all very cheap. its a mom and pop feel very humble and really laid back. decent showers and bathrooms. small beach area and volleyball and swimming. alot of dmb fans id say 90% dmb 10% locals that weekend. did talk with a few others that had been visiting with fellow campers and friends and they all said they wished they came to snug instead of others. they are actually closed for the season but she said go ahead call and if no answer leave a message or send email from website they do check and answer any questions. we already booked for this year.

    Tried calling the resort today as well to book a room, never got an answer. Did see they updated their homepage.

    Yeah, there really is nothing I like about them. The predictability, the gospel vibe they bring, the out-of-tuneness, all of it.

    I won't bash people that like them because I respect that every one has different opinions. But if I never saw them again in my life I would consider that a real win.

    Yep, exactly. If you like them, great. But do not ever wish for them to be on stage. It brings bad things. It makes shows worse. There is nothing good that can happen.

    nothing.

    It makes sense. Phish is rumored to be back at SPAC for the 4th. And it sounds like multiple rumors point to the weekend of the 4th.

    It seems pretty solid. I've heard it from a few sources at this point, so it seems reliable.

    Just got thru to the resort! 262-642-7374

    Booked a 2 Double Bed room on the 2nd floor, facing the mountain. Concert rate is $244/night. Booked it for FRI/SAT/SUN nights. Girl on the phone was great!

    First Alpine, here we come!

    comparing to SPAC hotels, 250 a night doesnt sound ridiculous.

    compared to the 80 dollar baymont in waukeshaw, it does.

    ugh.

    Yeah, I'm just thinking it's worth to me for walking to/from each night. And wife will come along, prob won't go to any of the shows, so at least got a room with a mountain view, knowing the resort is really dumpy anyways.

    Good choice, Alpine is magical and the resort is a blast.

    Just don't expect an actual resort.

    oh, no judgement at all. I would LOVE to not have to deal with the travel to and from each night. only bad thing about alpine.

    one of the things I have to sacrifice sometimes is convenience and 'luxury' with all the traveling and shows i go to.

    to the bold....very interesting...pretty much seems that the weekend is a "lock" then.

    never heard of them confirming the concert weekend before the actual announcement. nice!

    I don't think they know anything at all yet. The girl who normally answers the phone is probably just saying this because a lot of calls have come in about it.

    I believe it will be that weekend, but I'm sure the resort doesn't know yet and is only repeating what we have been telling them.

    When I spoke to resort they asked who was coming. I don't think they know. They have no affiliation with the theater

    This sparked my interest so I looked at the Cubs Schedule to see when or if the Cubs were home or away ... Away 1-2-3 home 4 on. And being the 4th is a day game. I'd just be surprised if they allowed another concert the night before again like last year. Id say July 1st for PJ For what it's worth.
