  1. Re: Breeder’s Cup Fan Fest. Went to Breeders Cup website and the only Fan Fest I could find listed was one on Friday night in Pasadena that charges a $45 entry fee.

    • Hi,

      Here is the info for Arcadia Night: http://www.breederscup.com/media-center/press-releases/2016-09-14

      As far as I know, the ticketed area in Pasadena is for dining, etc. but due to the location of the event, public is welcome to spectate and enjoy performances, though they would not have seating. I walk by the Pasadena fan fest every year and just watch the concert from across the street. Arcadia Night is free and open to public according to their release though!

  2. Feels like a little disconnect here. You say “customer appreciation” but then all the appreciation is at rail stations. I’d suggest changing the name to “rail customer appreciation” or having an event or two at bus stops. Just not feeling the love as a bus rider.

    • For the Olympics events they did an event at El Monte Station and they’ve done events at Orange Line stations. I think it would be odd to do an event on some random street corner, but there are bus transit centers like Pico/Rimpau Transit Center, Warner Center, LAX City Bus Center, and Harbor Gateway Transit Center that could use the love.

  3. Can we get more notice for things like this, so maybe we can adjust our schedules, or ask for leave from work?
