    If you are a short woman, this place is huge and tall people seem to be abundant. You will be standing for a while unless you grab a table, but if you want to see wear tall boots or heels.

    Don't go to all ages shows if you are 21. They suck. If you want a drink they place you in a separate ward behind windows. Terrible sound.
