    Big thanks to Mohit. He asked the guy's if we could do it there & they so wanted to. The Hamilton preparty is also in the venue, in the mall attached to the Copps Coliseum.

    Can't wait!! :)

  • hey guys,

    We didnt have enough stuff for fundraiser in Montreal so Demetrios ask us to make some donation. I decided at this moment to print out some pictures i took in Quebec City back in 2005. Since it went out pretty good(a little blur on the photo below...), I've make the decision of doing the same in Toronto, Ottawa and Hamilton!

    So, what do you think?! :mrgreen:

  • Anyone heading to Bert's Bar early?
    I got an email from ScotiaBank Place inviting all Pearl Jam ticket holders to reserve their seat in one of the 3 bars that are attached to the arena.
    I'll be driving from Kingston to get there around 2pm.

    Can't wait!
  • I didn't get an email today about my Ottawa tix ??? Also I mentioned in the other thread as I somehow didn't realize there were two :? :oops: that someone said Bert's doesn't open until five. Are they making an exception for us?

    thats great cause downtown and much of ottawa it a drive to get there, most big cities have their arenas downtown, not ottawa though
  • On the website it does say 4pm for hockey games, 5pm for concerts, but I am assuming 3pm was agreed upon by the PJ organizers and Bert's Bar mgmt. Can we get confirmation on that?
    I called guest services but they had no clue. $17 to park outside of Berts, $11 for general parking which is a further walk.
  • I'll be there tonight +1.
    The best PJ show I've been to was Ottawa '05.
    So personally... I have some pretty high expectations.
    Is it night yet??????????? :lol:
    Man..... I wish I could put a Pearl Jam pic in here as my siggie!!!! LMFAO!!
  • Was thinking about stopping by early today. Need a hand with anything?
  • Good work today - you really deserved the praise that Eddie offered up during the show.
  • Amazing show everyone. Great shout out from Eddie and the band to you Foxy. Well deserved. Happy Anniversary as well.
    Thank you and everyone that volunteered for the pre-party. Very happy to win that No Code vinyl!
