    There is nothing really stopping us from meeting there as a group and making the deck a basecamp and doing whatever we want outside of using a bullhorn. That early in the day I cant see Rippys being crowded with anything other than concert pre-partiers anyway. I guess opitmal would be that a place agrees to "host" it (maybe some logistic support, a discount on food/drinks, etc) but sometimes that requires people to pull their head out of their own ass and see the benefit....errrr...dollar signs..

    I'm not sure who answered you from Rippy's but I have dealt with Harley (i believe he manages and is part owner in both Rippys and Broadway Brewhouse) and he's always seemed cool. I'm curious as to who dropped the "not interested". I mean what idiot does not want their bar to have ADDITIONAL customers DURING THE DAY...DURING THE WEEK.... that normally would may never spend a dime with them ? I guess its possible they were just saying not interested to the offering of a discount or other things you might have asked for. Were they actually saying "no...you cant do a "event thing" here ?" or just saying no to discounts/etc ?

    I say just go to Rips on the day, set up camp in the front corner of the deck (broadway side, by sommet center), put your stuff on a table or two, and Jammers can meet there.

    That sucks about Rippy's. Oh well, screw 'em. You could try Bailey's, which is right across the street from Rippy's and a few doors over and on the same side of Broadway as Ryman is. They've got a couple of big rooms and an open air patio that overlooks Broadway and host events sometimes. They've also got lots of pool tables and pretty good food too. Here's the link to thier website with contact info. It's the second one from the bottom for Nashville/Downtown.

    Good evening! I received e-mails from Gena, who had spoken with the GM about the event. I spoke with her on the phone today, and she is really sweet and seemed like she felt really bad about the issues with having the pre-party there. The issues are kind of important, but then again-kind of not. I told her I would bat them around with you guys and get back to her later in the week. I did not ask for discounts, etc.--just space.

    So, they have a live band that starts at 1 or 2 (I can't remember) on Thursdays. We would not be able to have a PA for announcing raffle/auction winners, or play music of our choosing in between. So, not such a big deal--we could work around that.

    In order to "reserve" the patio, they typically charge for it, but she said that they do not like to charge for fundraisers, but that Thursdays are a busy day for them. To "reserve" the patio, we would need to get $4000 minimum in sales. She thought she might be able to get that down a bit.

    She also said that they have two rooms downstairs that we could set up in as well. So, what are your thoughts?
    I still want you all to "take care"--I am just damn tired of typing it.

    Something does not sound right with this place. I would try finding another place that want's our business. If you can't find another place we can just crash Rippy's patio and set up there. Just my opinion.

    I have two singles for Eddie in Nashville on June 18th that I can't afford to keep:

    Main Floor, section 5, row S, seat 10
    and
    Balcony, section 10, row A, seat 1

    Sadly :cry:, I really need to unload these. Please PM me if interested.

    Ughh you never know who you will get when you are dealing with the group of bars that are all owned by the same group of guys.. some of them are assholes and others are nice. No wonder a lot of the owners owe money because they dont understand what a good opportunity this presents..

    I asked for RSVPs so that I could determine whether or not I need a contract. I am going to send Bobby a note, asking him if you guys can call for the group rate, and then if we have more than 10 rooms, I can do the contract. That way, everyone isn't left hanging! :)

    Thanks. Not trying to be pushy, just trying to get everything planned. Maybe it's the excitement that's getting me. I'm ready to be there NOW....... :D

    Oh, no--not pushy at all! I sent him an e-mail today, and should hear back from him tonight or in the morning. I just really need a "code word" that people can use when calling, as that might be easier than me trying to keep a list and calling him when someone chimes in. He can just get in touch with me if the number reaches 10 or more for the contract issue. :)

    I am excited, too!!!

    Yeah, same thing here. I have been saying all along, "the pre-party is for Night 1, which is really Night 2." So, I would think for less confusion, we should go with the 17th being Night 1, and the 18th being Night 2. Are we all in agreement? LOL :)

    So the pre-party is for June 18th? The confusion began with the additional show being added the day BEFORE the original show instead of the day after :) I just know we will be there for both shows, Nights 1 and 2 :D

    Sorry I haven't been keeping up with news... it has been crazy at home and I am in the middle of some things that I need to focus on.... including for the show.

    Is there a pre-party for the 17th? I know most of the talks here has been for the 18th....which obviously we can't make it because we'll be leaving that morning.

    I'll try to check in often!

    Thanks so much for all hard work you have put into this, kcherub! I can only imagine how hard it was closing your business...(I'm hoping it was just a business deal that you had to close, not your actual business!)

    Hey! Yes, the pre-party I am working is for the 18th, Thursday. I will be so full up doing this one, that I just can't contemplate another the day before! If anyone does step up and want to organize one, I will be happy to help a bit! We are picking up a friend at the airport that afternoon (the 17th), so I would have to bug out for that. :)

    Hey, there! See my above post regarding the 17th... :)

    Yes, it was actually a children's boutique that I had owned for 6 1/2 years! I know that I will miss it after a bit, but right now I am really, really, really at peace with closing it. Too much stress, and I don't need any that I can do away with! Thanks for being so sweet!

    Bump, and a question...for those of you can donate, do you know what you are donating? Shoot me a PM, so I can make sure to not miss it! I have some edits for RSVPs, and I don't want anyone to get lost in the shuffle! ;)
