How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
It was a beautiful summer evening and the setting was picturesque and idyllic. There were some snags in the beginning. We turned to drive up the hill to Montalvo when we saw the sign $25 parking!! We were running a bit behind and were planning to eat a quick picnic dinner on the lawn. We had seen the signs for shuttle & parking at West Valley & turned around to head there. By the time we got to the venue the picnic was out. We had to leave our back pack with security. Oh well we can get wine and a bit of food at the concessions Oops, cash only! Not something i carry a lot of. I'm a D Card person. Somewhere there was an ATM but time was short and I settled for 2 glasses of wine (had just enough cash) After all that the concert was great Mary's voice was warm and rich. Marc is a very effective vocalist who emotes the lyrics. Marc has great sense of humor and the banter between them was fun. The music was wonderful and too short!! Not even 2 hours!! I miss the days of the old Montalvo when you could drive up and park in the lot for free. I will have to adapt to getting there earlier and taking the shuttle. Welcome to the end of free convenience.

Help others enjoy a great night out
