Seriously, who wants to get up at 10 a.m. on a Saturday, desperately log on to Ticketmaster in hopes of scoring a semi-decent seat for a concert at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, and even then, if you succeed, take the huge hit to your credit-card balance that shows cost nowadays? Forget all that jazz. For a mere 8 bucks—less than the "service charge" —you can park in the adjacent Wild Rivers parking lot and hear the bands loud and clear. One caveat is that this only works for day shows, as Wild Rivers closes at 8 p.m., but the opening acts are usually the most interesting bands anyway. And good news, cheapskates: Wild Rivers had its lease extended through next summer! (*This practice not necessarily endorsed by Wild Rivers, but hey, it's extra parking revenue for them.)
