It holds 4,500 in the configuration it was in last night.

I was there, it was sold out and ZZ Top put on a great show.

I heard it went well too, and the restaurants, bars and businesses in the surrounding buildings were all packed before the show.

I was kinda worried about traffic flow, but we had to drive the area just before the show and it was not too bad.

Exiting from the parking garage was a cluster.  (what event isn't?)  But, otherwise, looked like a nice facility.

Exiting any kind of suburban events facility is a giant clusterf***. Thousands of people all going toward one exit.

It's the funnel traffic flow of suburban housing developments multiplied by 1,000.

Downtown venues have that going for them: spread out parking and lots of streets going lots of different directions.

after the Zig Zigler disaster you have the gall to post that bull****?  Just ****.

I drove by Regal Plaza when it was filling up and when it was emptying out and it was nothing, NOTHING, like the complete and total failure that happened downtown last Monday.  I moved 50 feet in 30 minutes last Monday.  NO COMPARISON.

Here is people's real beef with Spirit Events Center....it was built with no -direct- taxation of the public.  If it is a failure taxpayers aren't left holding a silver toilet bowl.  The Oligarchy WANT SEC to fail because it competes for a certain segment of acts that could play in the BOk.

I thought it would compete more with the Brady Theatre, not the BOK.

Tulsa World's numbers were suspect.  Every other outlet called it a sell-out.

Now, what does Pete Boylan's project have to do with this and what is your obsession with Remy?  Did he try and screw some sand mites out of some $$$?

You must have gotten stuck behind some drunks or some idiots or both.

My wife and I walked to our car, which was parked just East of the Mexican restaurant, got in and were out on Memorial in less than five minutes.

That's what you get for thinking there is only one entrance and one exit from downtown.  Have you tried going into downtown from Peoria or from the north side of the IDL?  There are many different approaches to downtown, you just have to get away from South County to find them.

We sat dead stop...not moving an inch for about a half hour (possibly more) on the third level of the parking garage.  Once we started moving, it went quick.  Once we came around the first and second level, they were almost empty.  So, I'm assuming that they blocked each level above to let the lower level clear out first.  I know that sounds stupid, but that's what it appeared like.

My destination 100 W 1st St was ****ed in all directions so save that bull**** for the funny papers you ****.....but go ahead and reply with something really stupid like "well you should just have just parked somewhere else that day"  Oh yeah, I'll just inconvienence myself to accomodate a ****ing failure in planning.

My god, do you just get completely stupid and naive the closer you live to downtown?

Just a point; I don't think 34000 people work close to downtown Bixby.

And my guess?  The further south you live in Tulsa county, the more anger issues it appears you get.
