    Think I may do the same. Place was rough. Glad I didn't peek at the hot tub with a full stomach.

    Thanks for the recommendations. How is the Uber situation before and after the show? Better to just get a rental car?

    Just put in my request for Houston. But with the combination of ticket prices, how many songs have been repeated between Houston and Dallas, and this being an album year meaning even more repeats (of songs I'm not crazy about), I don't think I can justify the double-header like last year.

    only 4 repeats last year. 3 of them being Grey Street, Nancies, and Warehouse. I'll take that all day.


    definitely will have some new song repeats this year, but hopefully some additional new ones as well.

    That's fair. I was happy with those repeats, but in an album year, I don't think we'll be that lucky. I also realize I was thinking of the other 5 songs that were repeats from the Texas stop in Austin, which I guess won't be an issue this year.

    Maybe the Houston show will be so good that I'll pick up some Dallas tickets last minute. But admit part of it is buying two tickets and a parking pass and then seeing the gut punch of $400 for one show...

    hotel is really nice. area is GREAT during the day. tons of bars and restaurants in deep ellum.

    at night, just south of there gets a little riff raffy, and ubers are impossible to get leaving the area.
