    Welcome from me too SKPX!

    I hope you have a wonderful time in Pittsburgh - You won't regret getting those VIP tickets.

    I doubt Glenn will throw you a pick, but it might be worth hanging about the stage area after the show and the tekkies might find you one. I've never done it at an Eagles gig, but I did at Glenn s shows in Niagara Falls and was rewarded!!

So I have great expectations! Lol..)
    The dinners have been different at each venue, so it's hard to describe! The dinners at the Revel in Atlantic City were both pretty good. The dinner in Atlanta was horrid, and it was outside in a tent (it's an amphitheater) in all the humidity. They usually have a little salad bar and two or three entree dishes (casserole-type things). Sometimes all your drinks are free (basic hard stuff, 'third shelf' wines, and basic beers), sometimes only two of them are. Sometimes the desserts look pretty good, sometimes they look a little stale (I never get dessert). There is usually always some kind of chicken, the rest has varied.

    When you go, you get your tickets and a laminated VIP thing to wear around your neck. You also get an envelope with your tickets for the door prizes and drink tickets (if there's a limit on drinks). Then they let you browse the merchandise (crowd-free! bonus!) before taking everyone to whatever room the dinner will be in.

    NYC Fan is right, the inclines, especially the Duquesne incline is good, with an overlook of the city. The Carnegie Science Center by Heinz Field is good, and Station Square is always interesting. Of course, the thing I most want to see while there is the beautiful statue of Super Mario (Lemieux) outside of the arena.

    By the way, I treated myself to a front row seat in Vegas back in 2011, for my 50th birthday. The concert was actually on my birthday and so I figured that was a sign! I certainly never regretted it! Now I find I have a permanent reminder of that night since one of the scenes at the end of part 2 of HOTE is from that night, and from the exact same angle as what I had all night.

    Welcome Skpx!

    That is so cool that you bought a VIP. You'll have to regale us with your tales of the evening.
