Levitt releases attendance numbers

They are saying about 22,000 people have attended the 15 concerts so far (about 1,466 per show). They have been using clickers to count, and I would guess the numbers are pretty accurate. The more popular shows draw well over 3,000.

People are still bringing their dogs. Levitt cannot really control this since it is the jurisdiction of Parks Department and the city council would probably have to pass an ordinance banning pets at concerts (you know, like how they have banned people bringing their own alcohol – yet sell it there, that one still baffles me).

I was also a little annoyed last night when a volunteer said I couldn’t stand on the sidewalk because it was for people walking. I am well aware what a sidewalk is for and if someone comes along, I ‘can’ move. Besides, it’s a public park and public sidewalk. Next time worry about the dogs overheating in the sun.

SDPTV was filming the concert last night, so they put it up on the big screen which was kind of cool.

It looks like an internal climb would be the way to go, huh? At times, it could encage you and thus prevent a fall.

Attendance at the Canaries’ game on Saturday evening was nearly 2,900; for the season, to date, home attendance at the Bird Cage is 2,262 per game.
Simply provided as fact to those posters to the blog who peddle mistruths as generalizations (“baseball stadium isn’t a big asset for the city anymore given the relative lack of interest in minor league baseball”) in order to justify the quest to “find a way to repurpose the land”.

The attendance number is believable considering it’s easy to come and go. Interesting look up the Hoo Hoo of the Arc. It’s an obvious pipe dream. A better idea would have been an Ark for spring floods. Then homeless could be boarded two by two. This must be coated with Vaseline to keep kids and suicidals from climbing it.

I walked by you on the sidewalk. I nearly tripped over you because you impeded my egress.

I was at the Friday evening show. Sun was still hot for those of us arriving for the first act at 6:30pm, so limited shade provided by vendor pop-up tents and lavatory building made those grassy spots crowded. Parents with infants & toddlers spread picnic blankets in front of their chairs for their infants, and toddlers romped & tumbled barefoot in the grass. Nice scene until two large dogs peed right where the toddlers could trip and faceplant right in steaming, fresh urine pools – with the fat bitch owner blissfully unaware while she gabbed with other idiots. This is obviously not something you can stop a dog from doing, and the owner can’t clean it up! This bringing dogs to events with lawn seating has got to stop. GOD DAMN the selfishness of dog owners like these.

They should sponsor a “Pit Bull Night” at the Levitt:

Maybe the sidewalk monitors could sport some sidekick Pit Bulls, too.

Leave your &^#$%# dogs at home and not at public events. When I am shopping at Lowes or Home depot keep your damned dog home. Don’t think it is cute when my 9 year old has to walk around your pitbull.
