“Free” Parking, TMBG, Boulevard and Saturday Night Out

Tonight I had a chance to go out to Live On Penn to catch They Might Be Giants and Fountains of Wayne with a few friends. The concert was great, but a few thoughts for the people who are running the show down at Live on Penn:

  • Beer was plentiful! As such, I bought many overpriced, undersized beers. Food, however, was a pain in the ass to get. Long lines. Lines that Didn’t Move. And only two choices? You had four beer trucks, three wine (okay, okay, Arbor Mist ain’t wine, but still) dispensaries, and only two vendors for food? WTF.
  • Gotta figure out how to better dispense with 7000 people all bound for the same metro station.
  • The extra long scratchy mix of “Hey Ya” was about 6 minutes too long. And I *like* that song.

Overall, TMBG was good, Fountains of Wayne was excellent. The six of us adjourned to Boulevard Woodgrill for some incredible dessert.
We metro’d back to Pentagon City where I’d left my intrepid vehicle at the garage there by the Best Buy. It was locked up tight at 12:30. We circled it, tried all the doors and gates. No such luck. So much for “free” parking on weekends. It cost me a $13 cab ride back to Fairlington. With luck, my car is retrievable tomorrow!
Damn Parking Nazis.
