Okay, so the announcement that you could still get Arena seats caught you completely off guard. It was too late to coordinate a hotel, appropriate traveling companion, and all the other things that go along with a weekend trip. I understand. On the other hand, a day trip is a different story. With single show Arena tickets available, you can still see an incredible set of artists on the main stage, and have access to any of the venues on the grounds.
The weather will be fantastic; temperatures in the 80s, offshore winds (read, no fog), pleasant nights. It'll be a wonderful thing. Best part is, you don't have to bring anything. Food, beverages, artisan vendors, and some outstanding performances by a few hundred very popular jazz legends, luminaries, and rising stars. What on earth could you possibly be waiting for?
