We saw Jethro Tull tonight at CMAC. The first issue was with parking. We needed handicap parking. It's closer than regular parking but still at least 300 yards from the venue itself. We saw no evidence of any golf carts or other shuttles. We did...More

Visited Canandaigua for a Jethro Tull concert. While the concert wasn't up to my expectations, the venue was great! Most concerts see are Live Nation venues...pizza, fried chicken, etc this venue had multiple food trucks, which was awesome! Concert, imho, was so so. I've seen...More
