When you get there the area and the building looks sketch. Wear sneakers the road is uneven, numerous potshots, watch your step. When you finally navigate into the outdoor seating it's actually a super worth while show. This company was late, and I'm short, so I couldn't see from a lot of people in front of me, but still enjoyable.
