What: Chastain Park Pre-Show Picinic will be Saturday Oct 11, 2008.
Where: Master Grill area of Chastain Park (directions will follow)
When: Start at 1pm, eat @ 3pm, Auction for Bill @ 4pm, end @ 6pm
Bring: BYOB, Water, Hot Dogs & Hamburgers (good quality) and other accompanyments will be provided. We will take donations to pay for the food, etc.
Why: to socailize with other like minded ABB fans and partyers.
Watch out: The rules say no glass so please try not to bring in too much glass, we will have plenty of plastic cups.

I finally found the Master Grill area at Chastain Park and this would be the perfect spot for our Pre-show Picinic (as long as it doesn't rain). The Master Grill is located off W. Wieuca Rd. It was hard to find because there was no sign for it. It is a gravel road and has a circular gravel parking area. I'm hoping we can leave our cars there and then walk to the venue, but I'm not 100% sure we will be able to do that. There is a gate and the park is supposed to close at 11pm so I'm not sure if they will lock us in or not. There are lots of places to sit and mingle. There are 5 picnic tables there and stone seats and several small grills and a great big grill that may not be in working condition but I think we can use the smaller grills for the hamburgers/hotdogs. W. Weiuca Rd runs between Roswell Rd and Powers Ferry Rd. If you are coming from Powers Ferry, its @ 1/4 mile on the left; you will go over 4 speed humps and then turn left. I need to clock the mileage coming from Roswell road, but the entrance will be on the right after the softball fields but before the golf course. I will have detailed directions to the venue and the Master Grill area at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Barb,
My husband and I are staying at the Crowne Plaza but we are only able to attend the Saturday night show, so we're not checking in to the Plaza until Sat. Their check-in time is at 3:00.....which is also food time at Chastain! I called the hotel but they can't "guarantee" that we could check in earlier.
I guess my questions is: If we don't get to Chastain till 3:30 or 4:00 will we be too late for the food and festivities?? We REALLY want to come to it. It's the first ABB concert for both of us and we've got front row seats!!
By the way, Bluedad, BigDaveonBass, Peachfan8 and several others have met us in person and know we're trustworth....err...friendl.....errr....NOT TROLLS!!!!!
Thanks to you and Jamgram for all your hard work.

Laura Jane

Sure Laura Jane, come and join us whenever you can, we'll probably still have some hot coals going to fire up some more hotdogs and hamburgers. I will leave the directions at the front desk so you'll be able to find us from the hotel. Most hotels let you check in early, as long as the rooms are clean. If they don't let you check in just get the directions, come join us and then you can go back and check in and come back to party more.

Join us anytime.

Just in case, I will bring my portable grill and a pop-up shelter. Will bring extra chairs and as I said plenty of coolers and ice for your drinks. One easy thing anyone could bring is chips or other things of that nature. I have purchased some chips but I am sure it will not be enough.
When we buy big sodas we always end up with lots left, so other than water, everybody should be in charge of their own drinks. I got plenty of cups etc.
Forecast is for excellent weather. We are expecting rain Wed & Thurs but the weekend looks grand!!!

Thank you and can't wait to see you again. Hopefully the rain will be over with by Friday. Should be a great day with some great people. And yes, like JamGram said, BYOB means any drinks besides water that you wish to consume be it sodas, beers or whatever.

Hey Barb & Co...

Question comes to mind....is the park 'alcohol friendly'? We gonna have coppers in tye-dyed shirts busting us for Budweiser? Hate to spend the nite in the Atlanta slammer! Gonna be a long day....perhaps smart to drink some ice tea!!!

Alcohol is prohibited in the park (but will be served inside the venue). As is glass. But be discreet with cups and you should be ok. I'm bringing bottled beer if that tells you anything. Down with the man!

See you there!

Any plans for after the show?

Darwin's on Roswell Road has a great Canadian band "Pat the White band" performing Saturday night. They were mentioned in a recent issue of HTN.

May just try and run by there after the Bros are finished.

both the Lee Boys and YSB are on Friday night and that will make it hard to be at 2 shows that night so I guess I will see if I can catch a ride to Smith's to see the Lee Boys since I am passing out flyers for them at the ABB show. I think Helen is going to YSB.

Which venue....vis-a-vis "Lee Boys" versus "Yonrico" is closer to the Crowne and/or Chastain.....either in a 'direct' route?
