just got home.
the market itself tbh was good.
i thought the admission was kind of smart. tonight as least, because it was already packed and there was still about 150 people lined up outside. wouldve been a gong show if everyone came in.
parking was horrible.
in the lot i was in behind the casino, it wasnt organized at all.
cars were blocked in every which way

whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? why the line? is it cause they are charging admission and they suck at organizing it? or is it just cause opening day? seems kinda odd...i'm guessing it's cause of the admission fee thing

The line isn't as bad as it looks...took me maybe 5 minutes from the parking lot.

But the fucking stupid part was...they charge $1 but DO NOT TAKE $20 bills. What the fuck? I can understand the $50 and $100 but $20?! That's bullshit.

Plus it is absolutely retarded to charge admission rather than parking. It just creates a choke point and a line. The other NM never has a line. And there needs to be a "YOU MUST BE ABLE TO PARK FUCKING PROPERLY" requirement. As 90% of Asians to park in a standard sized space in 10 seconds or else their family will explode and just about all of them with fail horribly. That's why there's a lineup of cars all the way to Canadian Tire.

lineups: 10-20 mins to get into the free parking lots, 5-10 to get into the nightmarket, long ass lineups for food (waited 30 mins for 'The Squid Co', 30 mins for waffle balls), ~20 mins to get out of the parking lot, luckily I was parked in the second parking lot which was less than 5 mins to get out.

if they have to pass the cost on, i wish they would just pass the cost onto the vendors and the vendors pass the cost on to us. that way, sure we'd pay a bit more for the already overpriced food, but with no line. if you buy several items of different food a day i don't see the extra cost if they were to do it that way being more than $2 total for the whole night on all your food spend. $2 with no line is better than $1 with a buttfuck line that doesn't take 20's, to me at least

LONG lines for food. Any of the good food. The only place with a reasonable lineup was one of the grill places near the front. About 10 people in front. Any others there were 30-40 people ahead so I didn't bother. Dead everywhere else as usual. There's a cupcake stand out there that looks pretty successful. Not in the food area.

If you want to avoid parking in that area, park on the other side of the bridge near the Westin. 5 minute walk to the entrance if you jaywalk across the two one-way streets that go to/get off the bridge to the airport. A bit dusty and not actually roads...just loose gravel. Not recommended for the ladies in heels but otherwise saves you the hassle of the 30 minute traffic jam into the parking lot.

I thought the opposite. Lots more choices in food and I think the prices are better as well. I saw several stands with $2 skewers. $3.50 for drinks. That seems lower than the other place but I could be wrong. There were some things that were hilariously overpriced like the $9 bratwurst hotdog and $7 for a tiny lamb chop. The "Rotato" was $3.50 I think. Or whatever place is doing those spiral potatoes. Somewhere is $3.50.

Also seems cleaner. But that will change in a couple weeks, I suppose.

Took transit there, and was glad I did. Huge lineups for everything since it was opening day, and only the stalls with big lineups sold the better foods. Easily lost $30 just from eating a few pieces here and there... Some food stalls were just like mehhh.... Who the fuck goes to the nightmarket to eat weiners?

Thanks
