ok, I simply can't find it

I have no idea where the PM function on these boards is located. Gah I hate technology.

Oh, and bars/ hangouts

There are quite a few great divey/friendly bars in the area. I'd advise all to stay away from the establishments on High Point Rd., where things can be seedy, and instead head down to the Walker Ave. area where you can find some gems. There's local, dancingly friendly dive bars: Wahoos and Walkers. A laundrymat/bar, Suds n Duds. Live music w/ sometimes a hefty cover charge, but at times awesome local acts @ The Blind Tiger. A smoke free, 'upscale' bar, Lindley Filling Station, and Sticks and Stones beer & pizza.. Also, on Spring Garden St. in the heart of campus is Old Town Draught House, a pub/bar, and on the opposite side of UNCG on Spring Garden is College Hill, a great divey post college bar w/ good daily specials, pool, foosball, etc.

Gosh, the coliseum is such a hike,

Well, not really for me! I'll be walking to the show from my house down the street and avoiding all the gnarley traffic/police presence. We bought our tickets during the pre-sale and I'm still so excited I can hardly contain myself.

A general warning to all planing on coming from out of town, don't stay at the Sheraton Four Seasons, it's awful, awful, awful. Lots of mean spirited folks and towers, all very confusing.

If anybody is still looking for a place to pitch a tent in Greensboro, you can feel free to pm me about using my backyard =)

Asheville

You're right about that batcavejoe. My wife and I moved from RI to just west of Winston-Salem almost 3 yrs ago....and we love Asheville. We saw Plant/Krauss there last summer, but I haven't made it yet to the Orange Peel...still quite a haul from our neighborhood.

We got a room at the Red

We got a room at the Red Roof Inn, which is about 1.4 miles from the Col. at a decent price. Check their website, maybe you can still get a room there.
