    Be sure to check in when you get here! Parking is in the lots north of Vets auditorium. Entrances on 3rd and 5th. Otherwise, there are nearby parking garages, as well as street metered parking.

    Buy one of the new beers that fill from the bottom up. Quicker line, and the magnet is good for a FREE beer at Johnny's on Court Ave!
