We have 4 tickets to Cirque du Soleil on a Saturday night in a couple of weeks. I'm at a loss for places that (a) we can be seated/served quickly, and (b) are VERY CLOSE to the OC Fairgrounds (where the tent is).
Reason: We need to be seated by 8:00 (they're prompt!) in order to see the show in its entirety - if we're late, we won't be seated until the first intermission, which (IIRC) is about an hour later. Backing up from that point to allow time for getting to the fairgrounds (we have to go through the back gate on Arlington to get to the parking on weekends because of the swap meet), parking, walking in, and getting to our seats, I'm guessing we'll need to be pulling in to the lot sometime around 7:30 to 7:40. Complicating matters is that the S.O. won't be available until 6:30, unless she can get off of work earlier than that.
I'm about ready to plan on a tailgate feast of sorts so that we aren't rushed between places that night (I sure hope it doesn't rain if we go that route!), but figured I'd ask around first before proceeding.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
