I'm looking for a decent place to have the pre-show. Will post.

 

I ended up in a decent bar for CA, but don't remember what it was..haven't been to Newark since. 

 

I'm open to suggestions.... let us know.

 

In the meantime, who's going to this show?

That's walking distance?!?!  Umm no!

 

I have dropped off for my kids' concerts there and saw Rush last time.  The only place open was a slice place across the street.  It seems like Newark shuts down and goes into "battle mode" once it's 6-7pm.

 

Here's some pics of the bathroom:

For Ca, there were a few places open. I remember being across the street and up the block from where they let us in for the VIP......

You must have been up by the station then.  I'm guessing that block is open.

I'm trying to talk my brother into going to this show. He lives in Cheshire, CT, and I have a gig in Fairfield the next day, so it would work out logistically pretty well. But he'd rather go to Boston, which I already got my tixx for because he waffled on the day of sale.

Hey...where's Perry?

Dinosaur Barbecue would be a good place.  http://www.dinosaurb....com/bbq-newark

 

They have a decent beer selection and great food and appetizers.  I didn't realize they had just opened a Newark location.  Looks like it's open.

Which is the best hotel to stay in either near the airport or near the venue? Am I right in thinking the venue is a short train ride from the airport?

The Candlewood Crackhouse, Hilton Heroin Suites and the Marriott Methhouse are all fantastic...

Eugene, I'm not all that familiar with Newark and transportation in that part of NJ.

 

Let me see what I can find out for you.

I think the closest hotel would be in downtown Newark. The airport is a bit further away. Other towns where you can take a train to downtown Newark would be Seacacus or Hoboken or Manhattan near MSG. The airport hotel area is devoid of train connections. You'd have to take the hotel airport shuttle to the airport and get on the air train network which would join you to NJ Transit. I don't think you do much better price wise in those places.

I am taking my 14 year old to her first (and last?? :o  ) Rush show!! 

 

So, pregame is out for me in Newark...but I am also going to MSG, so perhaps I can finally put some faces to names at a pregame around the Garden? Let me head over to that thread... :)

Weather permitting there is a DJ then a cover band playing outside in the plaza by the Edison Ale House from 4 - 7 or so. Prob check that oot; looking at a 5:00 train that will get us there around 5:15.
