Merriweather Post Pavilion may be expanding
Yesterday, I got a tip that Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia (pictured) is undergoing some renovations.
According to the tipster:
the whole west side of the property is being expanded with brand new restrooms, a pinball lounge, and new concessions stands as well as leveled out
I e-mailed Merriweather's general manager, Jean Parker, who called me back and left an obscure message ...
"We're working on some pretty cool fun stuff, but we're not ready to disclose the details yet," she said. "So stay tuned."
I wonder if these changes will increase the venue's capacity. Anybody know more about this?
Also, I wonder if these renovations could be underway to help accommodating the Virgin Mobile Festival, should it move to Merriweather. I have to admit -- I was surprised at the number of Midnight Sunners who think holding Virgin Fest at Merriweather is a bad idea.
