Re: Advice for the various venues

Undercovers inside the arena? In New York City. You've got to be kidding. Don't they have more productive things they could be doing?

This is why I prefer west coast venues and outdoor venues.

Even here in KC, the bible belt, there's no undercovers at the shows, and if security catches you they will just boot you, not arrest you.
Takin' it in stride!

IF you plan on going to MSG then to Syracuse the next night good fin luck if you're drivin. Gettin out of Manhatten is a bitch.... & Friday traffic is gonna suck immensly. Safe travels to all.

I would not worry about this too much. So many way's out of town. The city is used to so many cars at 11PM on a Thursday night it's not too bad. Yes, you will hit congestion near MSG but it shouldn't be bad. Getting out of the parking lot on the side of MSG can be a pain. I suggest you prepay when you enter if you are parking there, but again, I don't suggest paying them their ridiculous ransom.

Here are some parking coupons for MSG. Icon is everywhere. MSG is closest to Murry Hill. These 3 garages are fairly close, and probably worth walking the 10 minutes to save the $30 or $40. Plus you can get out qucker if you park here. The first two are really the closest. Follow link for coupon: www.iconparkingsystems.com/Coupons_Area.asp

If they are there I don't THINK they would bust you for weed or anything relatively tame. Every time I am on the floor at MSG everyone is smoking and by definition it's in front of the guards. I would hope undercovers are there in case of major problems or to bust the scalping scum. But I may be wrong there.

yea msg was kinda slow getting in last year, but some other venues are just as bad, but I hear they changed it some during renovation so i dont know. but their are undercover police in MSG dressed as heads and stuff, they wont't mess with u if you are like 35+ or so, but if you are a young cat be careful they will get you. They came and watched me and my friends for half the show after seeing and smelling the smoke in are section. As always keep your head on a swivel.

TO start, at MSG:

Do not park illegally, your car WILL be towed. After ~ 6 PM or 7PM you can park on the street for free, if you can find a spot. If you are willing to walk a little, I can help you with a garage that will be about $10 as long as you enter after 5PM or so. (Noble parking on 310 East 40th Street between 1st and 2nd avenue is one place) - it is a 20 min walk to MSG or ~ $7 for a cab with a tip. The parking on the side of MSG will cost you ~ $50 for the night.


DO NOT SMOKE JOINTS on the street. Smoking in the venue is generally ok bu don't flaunt it. If you must smoke outside, at least walk to 9th avenue - quieter there. But even there you must be discrete. No smoking is safest - one hitters if you are very discrete or perhaps in a crowd.

Any other hints would be apprecaited


i always feel more than safe smoking herb in nyc. thats wierd
but thanks for the parking tip. 10 bucks plus 7 dollar cabride. thats about 10 bucks plus 10 bucks. vr. 50. then a 10 dollar cabride back...still 20 bucks cheaper. plus furthur away when leaving less traffic. thanks scarlet
