a good experience. Only down side is that our advance paid for tickets did not assure us a seat- and there were none. A significant booooo - we spent $80 to come stand.

They had a travelling band give a concert there. The venue is perfect for this type of thing. We were 8 feet from the stage, beer selection was outstanding and dancing ensued on the small dance floor. Great time!
