Make sure you get dinner tickets. With Dinner tickets you get to go 1.5 hours earlier and you get front row seats. If buying on Goldstar, you have to email Goldstar to have them make dinner reservations for you. It is free and worth it. The food is average priced, you get huge portions, and it tastes great.

Great night! Hal Sparks was hilarious and Chris Bonno was pretty impressive too! The meet and greet afterwards for pictures sealed the deal. Great venue, great staff, great night!
