Re: Main Sale Ticket delivery?

No. No e-mails, no confirmation, and even though they said the packages would be signature required, they're not. They are just dropping them in your mailbox or doorstep. Once the porch pirates get wind of this, tickets are going to start disappearing. What an utterly mismanaged shit show. Customer...

If you're staying at/near the airport (as I do), Crawfish Asian Cuisine (Plumb Lane, near 395) was seriously good. Even as someone who is as picky as I am about my seafood (and Chinese food, for that matter), this place has impressed me every time I've gone.
