Dave's Buffett in Bristow

Dave's Buffett in Bristow

September 1, 2011

Was upgraded to first class on all three of my flights.

Delta #2405 AUS 6am to Memphis 7:49am
#982 Memphis 8:25am to Washington-Reagan 11:30am

Avis rental car $31

Originally scheduled for Saturday August 27th, I was also hoping to hang out with my new Buffett buddies from the Pensacola show. Well, with the no tailgating policy it looked like they would bail, and then Hurricane Irene came up the east coast so finally on that Friday the show was postponed, and surprisingly it was that bad to rebook flights for Thursday.

Pentagon was very close to the hotel.

Sheraton National, $99
#18 of 51 in Arlington

View from room 822.

Got lunch from the hotel restaurant- good mac'n'cheese, and this Maryland crabcake.

View from the rooftop pool area.

Must be a Battlestar Galactica fan.

With LiveNation's return policy I actually upgraded my ticket twice.

I thought I was in the second row of the first non-floor section, but it turns out there are three VIP rows in front of us that don't even show up on the seating chart. Deceptive.

Picked up some food from a Chinese place open until 2am on the way back.
