Cell service was also terrible for me with Verizon. Walked out of the venue only to discover several messages from The Director that were too late. :(

I had no service with Sprint on Sunday, not even roaming. But last night I had 3G, start to finish.

Couldn't connect to the wifi either, probably overloaded.  They ditched the "name must match ticket" policy at some point, probably took too long with the mass of people.  I wonder which side of the venue was quicker to enter.  Facing the front, I was to the right.  I would guess that the other side was probably quicker, I didn't know that was an option.   
The left side was so much quicker that around 7:00 staph started sending folks from the right side line over to the left side.  In future, always go left (in front of the Brixton).

Yeah, I was among the crowd that was pulled from the back of the right line to the front of the left line.  That was an unexpected bonus!

Two fantastic shows.  It was a joy to have been able to be there Wednesday with a smaller crowd.  But what the hell, it's the Foos, so it was also fun being packed in last night and bouncing around.

I love the venue.  Big, but feels like a club, not an arena.

No wifi, no cell except behind the soundboard (I have Verizon).

Bit of a bar fail; took 26 minutes to get beer at the bar on the second level, stage left.  Discussed with friends, would make a HUGE difference if you could just swipe and go.  Which would mean adding tip automatically, which I know would make some people losing their minds.  But, having each patron sign a receipt takes a lot of time and creates some chaos.

hey seth -

perhaps look into those stand-alone card swipers like they have at most grocery* check-outs these days?  add a tip on the pin-pad, sign on the screen using the "electronic pen"... and sell more beer, faster, to happier customers.

* i'm assuming that you actually frequent grocery stores... if not, ask your butler/personal shopper about it.

Did they check ID's against the name on the tickets to get in?

(They will check your ID for drinking age, and either issue you a wristband or stamp your hand.)

They did not check names on tix against IDs at FoosThursday; at least not mine.  Just checked IDs for age.

would have been easy to sell a tix then
but good they made people think they had to be on the tix so the secondary market couldn't kill them
