Re: opening day traffic concerns
OK, where do you locals think the best bet for parking might be OD? I was going to stay in a hotel Sunday night, but now am thinking of just arriving there mid-morning. You think there will be downtown parking? I park sometimes caddycorner from the NW corner of the Millinium- the garage that sits across the street north of the convention center. Or would Newport be a better option you think?
I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
