I've been to the BNA in Minneapolis and Philly. In Minneapolis, it was loud and hot--but tolerable, you could move around somewhat and help yourself to beer. The beer at Philly was great, but otherwise it was awful. I wanted to leave after ten minutes. Impossible to move, had to scream at the top of my lungs to be heard, and it was ungodly hot. I was embarrassed that I sold my six friends on the idea to come. As, for the music, I've seen bands like Pantera and Megadeth. I don't mind loud music. But when I want to drink beer, I want to drink and enjoy good conversation with friends. The band was a major distraction. (The guy singing acoustic was OK, tho.) The bottom line is that I swore I was done with the BNA's. However, I think Justin may have hit a home run with the Fifth Third Ballpark. That said, this is the last chance for the BNA.
