My wife and I enjoyed wonderful evening at Chautauqua last night. Our visit to the site was specifically to see Toad the Wet Sprocket perform live in the Auditorium. First off, the grounds are magnificent. The walk up the hill from Baseline Road, past the Dining Hall and into the Auditorium was delightful. Prior to the start of the show, we decided to grab a bite to eat at the indoor/outdoor kiosk at the rear of the Auditorium. This is where concert goers can indulge in cooked to order grilled foods such as burgers, fresh local beer on tap, wine, and Boulder Ice Cream. FYI: No food or alcoholic beverages allowed inside the Auditorium. The staff working the concert were awesome. No complaints. The staff was very polite, professional, and friendly too! This the first concert venue(I've been to many in my life)I've ever been to that offered complimentary ear plugs/protection at the entrance to the building. Wow. It's hard to believe someone actually cared about the future of my hearing. We sat right front row which had good visualization of the stage. Ideally, the freestanding seats should've been angled more towards the center of the stage. The acoustics were pretty good, not the best in the world, but good enough. We certainly look forward to visiting Chautauqua in the near future, possibly for a hike or to eat dinner at the historic Dining Hall.
