Now where should I park?

Could they make parking at this school any more difficult?

We received this e-mail the other day:

On September 22nd, the University of Miami will be hosting Univision's Premios Juventud. This youth oriented awards event, featuring over of 20 the ‘hottest’ Latin artists, will be broadcast live to over 100 million viewers across the world & will highlight the University of Miami’s Coral Gables Campus.

Parking will be impacted in the lots surrounding the Convocation Center in the days leading up to the event & on event day. Below are the dates & areas that will affected:
1. Beginning September 14th through the 22nd, the three Convocation Center Lots (Hurricane 100, Convocation North, & VIP Lots) will be restricted to event parking only.
2. Beginning September 20th through the 22nd, the Serpentine Lot will be restricted to event parking only.

What? You’re closing a bunch of parking lots for some TV show? I don’t know the names of any parking lots on campus (Why would anyone bother to learn the names of the parking lots? Why to they even name them? Where are the names, anyway? If the lots are marked it’s not clear to me.) But I know that when any lots are closed, whether they are the two lots I use or not, that increases traffic at the law school lots. Last year parking was a nightmare for a month because of the presidential debate. That was a pain in the ass. But in a way it was sort of cool (and I went to the debate) and it was at least a major national event so it was understandable that they closed a few lots. But for this? Come on…
