It's not a very big venue, so all seats are pretty good. The drive up is nice as it is located in a residential area, so you pass a lot of nice houses.

We packed some food and ate at some picnic tables near the VIP parking. There aren't many, as far as we could see, so arrive early if you want to do that.
