Ha, ha. Just keep telling yourself the tickets were only $20. At our local outdoor concert venue you can bypass the concession stand and go to smaller vendors stands. And get an easy to carry Chick-fil-A sandwich and chips or a barbecue sandwich for about $8.

But you better bring a portable lawn chair for the lawn. If you sit on a blanket you won’t be able to see. EVERYONE brings lawn chairs now.

Our next door neighbor works there in the summer. Last time we went to a concert (we always buy lawn tickets) she moved us to the front row for Styx. But then you have to see how old these guys really are. And dodge guitar picks that they fling at the audience all night. I have one that James Young flicked at my eyeball. Luckily I have lightning reflexes and caught it.

It’s all a Grand Illusion.
