For parking, it's best to plan ahead on concert nights

The Pinnacle Bank Arena's groundbreaking Michael Buble concert brought thousands to Lincoln's newly redeveloped West Haymarket.

And the arena wasn't the only place swarming with people.

Charlie Win, a partner at sushi restaurant Hiro 88, says concert night brought in a whole new flood of guests.

"The business was extremely busy that evening. We filled up all of our reservations about three days prior to the concert. And we had a few spots available for walk–ins, but beyond that we were pretty much wall to wall for four hours," he says.

But with any crowd comes trouble finding parking.

Many of the lots near the Arena were full long before the concert began.

The Park and Go lot across the street from the Arena was booked a full week before the concert.

That's right, you can make a reservation for more than just dinner.

Any Park and Go lot accepts reservations prior to events.

Haymarket lots may have been full, but Assistant General Manager for the Arena, Charlie Schilling says unlike the Haymarket, the parking lot north of the Arena had plenty of room.

"Our 1300 parking stalls on the north side were pretty much wide open," says Schilling.

The pedestrian bridge isn't finished yet, so the festival north parking lot isn't as close as some Park and Go lots, but for those willing to walk, or ride a free bus shuttle to the Arena, the spots are there.

for business owners, the stress of concert rush is well worth it.

"The attendance of the concert was amazing. I think the fact that they were able to fill this arena is a testament to the demand for a venue like this in the area," says Win.

The arena's next concert is Jason Aldean, this Thursday.
