A proposal for ICHQ

For those who inhabit ICHQ:

I'm going to a concert at the Fillmore in Detroit. Dream Theater and Opeth with the Progressive Nation 2008 tour. I can't wait. Said concert is next week on the 14th.

I'm going solo to this show. I was planning to meet a friend that lives near Detroit, but he backed out due to money. I won't back out from this show, these are my two favorite bands together in one concert.

I'm driving straight from home to the Fillmore the day of. I'll probably leave my house at 2pm and get there at around 5ish. The show starts at 6 and probably goes well into the night. (we're talking about two bands that have an average song length of 9 minutes, Dream Theater with one song that's 45 minutes long).

Now, I may drive straight home after the concert. I have the following day off from work, so I don't have to. But if I'm up to it, I'll just go home and call it a night. That's how I typically like to do it. But more than likely I'm going to be exhausted after this show, and I probably won't be feeling a 3 hour drive.

Any chance I could crash at ICHQ if I need to? It's only about 20 mins north from the theater. I'm not a very imposing individual, I'll need a couch and that will pretty much do it. And possibly cereal in the morning.

But again, this will probably be a game time decision based on how I'm feeling after the show. What do you guys say?

    Well it depends.

    No it doesn't. ICHQ is a flophouse. It's like a free hotel for any and all IC members. Absolutely yes you can stay.

    In fact, I insist on it. You're not allowed to drive that close to ICHQ and NOT stop in. It's against the charter you agreed to when you signed up.

    The Fillmore is about 15 minutes from ICHQ. Srsly. No excuses. You're stopping by.

    Added to the forum registration rules that new members must agree to:
    ...The owners of Icrontic reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

    The owners also insist that if you find yourself within an hour's drive of IcronticHQ (in Warren, Michigan USA) you must stop by for refreshment and socializing. If the hour is late, you may claim the couch. You will hurt our feelings if you don't.

    Ok, ok ok! I'm stopping in for the night. Here's my revised plan:

    My ticket is general admission floor standing room only, so the sooner I get there the better. The ticket says ""WED MAY 14 2008 DRS 6PM " So I assume that's doors opening at 6 pm. I'll probably try to be there at least a half hour before doors open. No clue how late the show is going to be, but it'll be melt my face awesome.

    I may stop by ICHQ before going to the Fillmore IF I decide to bring my laptop. I don't know yet if I'm going to bring it, but if I do I'd rather not keep it in my truck in downtown Detroit while I'm at a concert for hours. I'll let you guys know.

    What is the parking situation like at the filmore? Should I bring money for parking? Is there a garage near, or will I use the lot across the street?

    After the show, over to ICHQ for the night. I'll head out kind of early the next day, but not too early. I've got to get some work done before the madness that is Friday and Saturday. I've got to be at a wedding in Illinois. What a week.

    Definitely bring money for parking. There is a public (city owned) lot a couple blocks south that costs, I BELIEVE $10. Don't quote me on that.

    The Fillmore is right across the street from Comerica Park (detroit tigers) so parking is always expensive. Worst case scenario: $20 for parking.

    There is a structure around the corner from Campus Martius that is $8 usually.

    OK, I'll have a wad of cash with me for parking - I don't typically carry cash otherwise. I'll be screwed if I forget.

    For $20 parking I'd be a stubborn *******, and just leave my car there for a month as a big FU to the city....and itl probably be towed.

    Lynx, while you're here you can stealborrow my bike rack for your car. It's awesome and easy and holds three bikes off the back of your vehicle. You can use it to bring your mountainbike to the LAN.

    Also, I drive a pickup truck. If bikes are being brough, we can just chuck them in the back.


    ... but 3 people in a truck with PCs and bikes may not work. I may consider that, Prime.

    It's not about height! You're amazing personality sets you apart form the tall folk. You're friendly banter and quick wit makes up for your lack of height. My only question to you is what makes up for the rats nest on top of your head?
