I'm a bozo!  I spaced and forgot to reserve early.  Normally I would just go hang at the bar, but I'll have my 17 year old with me.  Hmmmm....what to do....

 

Maybe go early and sequester a table at the dry bar.

 

My apologies in advance to those who sit behind the boy (6'7") and myself (6'5") at the show.  Here the boy is in action:

Being recruited by colleges to play volley ball, and an honor student, and handsome, way to go!

Brushes off lapel...thanks Teo.  He's a good kid.  He's trying to get into MIT - the coach wants him, but sports certainly don't hold the sway at MIT that they do at other schools.  We'll see...  If not MIT, it will be Wentworth Inst. in Boston.  They also have Civil Engineering and DIII volleyball.

pro tip for Pump Station...

if you are early enough gather by the back room fireplace, get the couch or low chairs and coffee table, order drinks...wait staff generally will serve you dinner there if you're friendly with them

With any luck, nobody will finish your french fries when you are in the ladies room and then puke on your shoes during the show.   :lol:

Thanks for the tip.  We did just that, and made out quite well!
