I had VIP concert tickets for tonight.  I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful job you all did.  The venue was just stunning.  Staff were friendly.  Food was amazing.  Your bathroom attendee was just amazing at keeping things clean and safe.  I felt very comfortable and that says a lot since I’ve not been out hardly at all since this pandemic started.  I look forward to coming again if you do this again.  Thank you for a fun night.  @GinaWheelerZwart
