Our showroom/VIP lounge is where the main stage musicians will be gathering before their shows so they they can meet the corporate and individual sponsors who have ponied up $5k or more to bring the Music Festival to town.
There will be about 50,000 people in town for the festival, but only about 300 sponsors with VIP passes and their guests, including the Governor of the state, so we expect our showroom/VIP lounge will be busy with the VIPs and musicians all day long Saturday and well into Saturday night.
The Festival people will be bringing in sofas, chairs, tables, and non-perishable food and drink and setting up the lounge today; then the perishable food early tomorrow morning in time to feed the musicians and VIPs. In fact, I can hear them rolling stuff out of the elevator now. I can also hear some of the bands playing now in the bars and restaurants near us. The streets will be closed over an eight square block area tomorrow, with wall to wall people.
Our showroom will be filled up with musicians and VIPs noshing on the free food and open bar the Festival is setting up. A good time will be had by all, then midnight Saturday rolls around, our coach turns back into a pumpkin, and the VIP lounge transforms back into our telescope-filled showroom again in time to open back up on Monday.
