    You son of a bitch, I’m in!

    First time seeing anything in Canada east of BC.  We’re coming from Michigan and hitting Toronto and Ottawa.  Anyone staying out near the venue? Couldn’t decide if downtown was worth it or not.

    If you're spending some time in OTT then downtown is the way to go. 
    If you're just in and out for the show the I would say to stay out by the arena.
    Anything you lose from being honest
    You never really had to begin with.


    Sometimes it's not the song that makes you emotional it's the people and things that come to your mind when you hear it.

    Im doing Quebec show solo.  I’m driving from Ottawa to Quebec on Saturday after Ottawa show.  If anyone needed a ride let me know.  On the Saturday though I’m staying in Trois-Rivières a couple hours outside of Quebec for the night in a private room at The HI there and then into Quebec on The Sunday where I’m staying at The Hotel Le Voyageur.  In Ottawa I’m staying close to the arena at The Brooktrout residence in Kanata @ 2 Maricona Way.

    Always happy to contribute. Hell I've never been myself but a coworker who is in our Montreal office filled me in. I verified on their website. A quick YouTube search will show the nice seating setup. 

    For a 6+ hour ride... open bar alone is worth over the $30 difference. Throw in a proper meal and improved seating? No brainer :)

    0-4 for all my 'local' shows

    ISO 1 for OTT
    In for OTT with my PJ tour crew of 3. We each got a pair of best available and we want to arrange for 3 GA if possible.  Will see what Best Available gets us and go from there but will most likely have a spare ticket or two either way. If someone has a spare GA maybe one of us can be ticket buddies and we can then get a couple people in on our reserved tickets (assuming we will get a couple at least) for those that missed lottery. Cheers!

    Yep for Ottawa. Have to wait 'til 1/27 to know whether GA or Reserved (single ticket). Doesn't matter to me which type.

    If there are enough folks I may call Via and explain the situation... will be a group of hard drinking, PJ listening fans heading East, and it might behoove them to seat us all together 😂 

    Maybe see if they will block off half a car or a car for us. I'm bringing my Bose soundlink Mini speaker.

    Not sure this is 100% true (but still good advice). Economy generally allows a big carry on bag (up to 50lbs, not an airline carry on bag) + personal item, and you can generally buy drinks. They offer a limited number of "escape" fares even cheaper. https://www.viarail.ca/en/travel-infos/classes-and-services

    That being said.. you're advice is good - we're doing the Saturday 2pm business class to QC (but I'm cheaping out on the morning TO to Ottawa..)
