In yesterday's Got Plans? discussion, several readers wrote in asking advice for how to catch some of the "Love's" happening during this year's Shakespeare Free For All: "Hate to be a repeat since you addressed this last week, but how early would you suggest getting in line to get tickets for the Free for All? I don't really have a feel for the demand, but my parents are coming into town Saturday and I think that is right up their alley. Also, are lawn chairs allowed at the event? Finally, where do you suggest getting a picnic dinner around there?"
Shakespeare Theatre recommends that patrons get in line for free tickets to "Love's Labor's Lost" on both Saturday and Sunday at 10 a.m. Tickets will be distributed at the box offices for Carter Barron and the Shakespeare Theatre beginning at noon both days.
Picnic suppers and blankets are welcome, but the National Park Service does not allow alcohol, cans, glass bottles, hard coolers or picnic baskets, pets, folding chairs, bicycles, roller blades, skateboards or scooters within the amphitheater gates.
As for picnic suggestions, prepare yourself for the Indian setting of "Love's Labor's Lost" with food from Naan and Beyond or go with a Middle Eastern spread from the Lebanese Taverna Market. If you'd like more suggestions, my blog post on recommended picnic packers offers several spots around town.
