Re: ***Official Mansfield 2020***

Is that big private lot (the first right) off the ramp still there?

Nice. Iím always afraid someone is going to purchase the land and build an office park on it.

Re: ***Official Mansfield 2020***

For any first timers who wonder how bad general parking is. I have gotten out of New England Patriot games with 65,000 people all trying to get to the highway quicker than i have gotten out of the Mansfield free lots back in 2013 the one time i didn't buy a premier parking pass. Premier Parking or VIP parking is a must.

Agreed. We won't be able to get to Mansfield this year, but if you don't pay for the parking, you're gonna wish you had...

That said, one of the ants regs said he was in a premium lot and was still stuck in there for more than an hour...closer to two...

I always leave before the encore so I can avoid the mess after. Not worth it.

Re: ***Official Mansfield 2020***

hoping this is a good question, might be a silly question but do they serve Treehouse in Mansfield now? They do at Gillette, which is 20 minutes away. Thanks. By the way, there is a Wormtown Brewery at Gillette now, FYI for you out-of-towners coming in.

That is key!!! Make it out before the busses.

Edit: I feel like the crappy encores have a been a gift to us that want to leave before the busses. I don't hate them for that.

There was a legit two step that closed a show back in the two sets years

One of the few non acoustic two step that year

2013 stands out for me too, but the 2010 shows were the best I've seen there IMHO. I really wish they would release those 2 as a Live Trax, or take the "best of" from those shows.

I know what you mean. The more I travel to to other venues, the more I realize that Mansfield is nothing special. The absolutely laughable part of it is that supposedly it was "modeled" after SPAC.

I only live 10 minutes away, so it's really tough to ignore the place. Plus, the set in 2016 really was a disappointment to say the least.

Are you the reason I canít cut though downtown Mansfield to get to the venue anymore?

I don't think so. I don't live in Mansfield and drive on I495 to get there. My guess is that there has been a lot of growth in Mansfield (i.e. condos and Apartments) near the train station as well as Mansfield Commons and the industrial park and that generates a lot of traffic during rush hour.

Yeah. It used to be a great cut through to skip the highway completely. And I would stop and eat at some pup downtown but Waze started taking everyone that way and it became a problem for the neighborhoods.

2018 was rough but I think they actually went over the 11pm curfew.

Didnít the LL make their return at Mansfield?

I usually let E1 start then decide if Iím leaving

With the strict 11pm curfew itís easy to guess whatís closing usually
