Would You Attend a Glamb Dinner Before Adam Lambert’s Costa Mesa Concert?

Since May 2009

We are exploring putting together a casual dinner before the July 19, 2012 Adam Lambert concert at the Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa, California. We did this for the last Costa Mesa concert in June 2010 and had over 60 people attending. This dinner will be open to everyone who would like to join us. We will be holding this at a restaurant 2 miles from venue, beginning at 4:30 PM.

We anticipate a strong showing for this dinner also, and therefore are required by the restaurant to have a set menu. We are working to keep the entree prices in the $8-$15 range, and offer meat, chicken, pasta and salad selections. Drinks and dessert are extra and separate checks will be offered.

One of the points this website takes pride in is bringing together friends who may only have met online, not face-to-face. By attending this dinner, you’ll get to know people you may be sitting near. Heck, since everyone will be on their feet for the concert, you can probably stand by each other!

So Costa Mesa ticket holders, do you want to join us for dinner? Please add your comments below and send an email to: glambinfo@aol.com to let us know how many will be coming to the dinner. In the email, please include names and your cell phone numbers too.

Love ya!

About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)


  1. What restaurant are we speaking of and where is the location and what time are you planning to meet. Last year I went to the venue early and got decent parking but some friends of mine didn’t go over til later. Maybe 5:30 or so and got stuck in horrendous traffic and had to take the car back to the hotel and walk to get there in time.

      smart correct..lingering at the food place wasn’t good for timing into the parking lot..i attended the slowish busy but good cafe on harbor..too rushed..then parking was a nitemare..

      i am a nite bird..no food before a great jump about concert..best to eat after..like a good little glampire..

      i would rather go after..the concert and be excited and eat late..just me…

      i gotta move out of a house same days..cant go early..

  2. Although I live in Vancouver B.C. Canada and cannot make the concert because of family & work commitments….”GLAMBERTS” I will be with you in spirit on this fun filled pre-celebration of the concert in Costa Mesa. I can’t wait to get the chance to see Adam live preforming the “Trespassing” album.
    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE every song!
    An unbelievable work of art!
    Thank You Adam…..YES…the wait was worth every second!
    XOX Always…”ADAMICTED”

    • Hi Michele,

      I feel the same way about Adam’s new album! It’s THE BEST EVER!! Can’t stop listening to it!

      Do you know if Adam will be coming to Canada any time soon? I have never had the pleasure of seeing him in concert yet as I live in Canada too. I’m from Ontario and hope and wish that he may one day come to Toronto.

  3. YES YES YES I would love to be there, if only I lived in the USA,!!! I am all the way in Australia. boo hoo so jealous. Have a glambert good time, glambert hugs & kisses. Have a big glambert drink for all us Ozzie Glamberts.

    I have a ticket for Costa Mesa, but am not sure whether I will actually be able to come. Still trying to work it out. YES, I’d love to get together with fans…..Please keep me in the loop as I doing everything I can to get there. Thank you.

    Hi Carol – You should have me and Nina on the list since we’ve been chatting about it via email lately.

    All – Nina and I are staying at the Best Western Plus Newport Mesa Inn, right across the street from the OC Fairgrounds, but we won’t have a car (hotel has an airport shuttle). Is anyone else staying there who could give us a ride to the dinner? Would really appreciate your help! Tweet me @timesmasher. Thx!

    • renogirl says:

      I will be at the same hotel. We are coming in by air too. We will not have a car. It will be my husband and another couple. I am the crazy Adam fan so I don’t think the rest of my group will want to go. They want to enjoy the fair and eat there. They are all returning home via airport and I am going to rent a car at the airport and drive to Fantasy Springs. Then I will be going to the glamily reunion there. I have never been there before so I guess I am in for a treat. I just want to meet and get to enjoy some of the other crazy Adam fans. He has been such an inspiration to me and just puts color in my world. My name is Valli and I teach Middle School Science. I am far from a girl. Hope to see some of you at the hotel and concert at Costa Mesa. Went two years ago for the first concert.

      • Phyllis Hoffman says:

        I will be going to the Fantasy Springs concert. Can you give me the info on the reunion there? Does anyone know if Adam will do a meet and greet there? His last concert at Fantasy in 2010 was so much fun. Can’t wait!!!!

    • dayflower1 says:

      I’m also flyiing in . land at 10:10 Southwest. I will take hotel shuttle to Best Western Hotel too. I would love to get together but have no car to get there. would need a ride or something within walkable distance. Vicki W, on twitter @dayflower1

  6. Sandra E says:

    You know I’ll definitely be there!!! Wouldn’t miss it for the world. I will have a friend with me also. What motel have we zeroed in on to stay at?

  7. I will miss this one but just want to share this.

    Trespassing is nominated for Best Album of 2012 on Billboard now:


    Glamberts voted ADAM as Billboard’s Music SEXIEST Male and had worldwide news coverage.
    Let’s do it again for ADAM to push Trespassing. Thanks!

  8. Lila - Glamb #3 says:

    I’ll be there!

  9. Phyllis Cohen says:

    Hi, This is the first time to comment. I am so excited! I have so wanted to do a function with other glamberts before or after a concert. This will be my fifth time seeing him. I can’t wait. Like so many others, I can’t seem to get enough of him. I can’t thank you enough for all the wonderful e-mails that you have sent over the years. Forever in your debt, Phyllis

    P.S. My daughter and I will be coming. Will send the e-mail.

  10. Carol, my daughter and I would love to be there. We just need to know where, when -all the details. Before we commit to do this, we have to make sure we can get over to the Pacific Amphitheater on time so we can park and be on time for the concert. Last time we were at Adam’s concert, the congestion there was unbelievable at the Fair grounds and we had to park so far away. This time I need to be close to the venue {post ankle fusion surgery] but I would LOVE to meet you and other Glamberts before the big night!!!!! Can we make this happen? I can mail you my email address???? Lorraine

  11. Richard Champlin says:

    Sounds interesting! Will there be an entree for vegans?

  12. Justin Brent says:

    My partner Gordon & I are driving up from San Diego. Gordon would need a seafood or vegetarian option. You might want to consider somewhere within walking distance to the fair if that’s possible so
    everyone could already be parked. It would also help those staying at nearby hotels.

  13. I’ll be there! Had a great time at Mimi’s last time and think the place is perfect, actually. Will send e-mail too.


  14. glamity58 says:

    I wish I could go. I’m too far away and my daughter is getting married that week. I’ll be there in spirit. Hope he gets a good turnout at the concert.

  15. Glamzilla says:

    I’ll be there with my Mom, Sister and Daughter.
    Mimi’s banquet room was great last time!

    I’ll probably park at the Fairgrounds then take a cab ~
    maybe we can share cabs. That traffic is horrible!

    Can’t wait!!

  16. Random Medley says:

    I may have an extra ticket for Sacramento

  17. Linda G Glam #675 says:

    I am planning on going. I had a great time at Mimi’s in 2010. I am coming from FL and will be staying with family in Newport Beach. I will have a car and can pick up Nina and Anita if they so desire. I am also interested in getting together with fans at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio. I also have a ticket to Adam’s show there on July21. Let me know and I will send you my e-mail address. Carol Hagey has my e-mail as well.

    • Hi Linda,

  20. Victoria says:

    Please vote for Adam at
    He’s losing to David Archuleta. Can’t let this happen

  21. I would LOVE to be there, but alas, I live in North Carolina and cannot financially or physically be there. I hope you have more than 60 Glamberts there this time and have a GLAMTASTIC TIME!!! I will be there in spirit and hope there will be some posts and pictures for us faraway Glamberts!!! Love forever and a day, Rita 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    I am interested, but need to know particulars before committing. Also, for those who are concerned about parking, I suggest purchasing a VIP parking pass. It is not cheap ($30), but allows one to park in the lot closest to the venue and guarantees a space. I arrived not too long before the show began last time and had no problem with parking. It was well worth the price, and the pass can be purchased up until the day of the concert.

  23. dayflower1 says:

    I would love to come to a get together. It will be just myself, My contacts are vkwiley@gmail.com or @dayflower1 on twitter. I would have to walk unless can get ride from Best Western hotel

  24. dayflower1 says:

    I have tried twice to send my info to the glaminfo@aol.com site only to have it fail arrival. Others try without success?

  25. Hi Carol, I tried to send you an email message at glaminfo@aol.com today but it seems that the site is already non-existent. I wanted to ask you to include 2 people {my daughter and me} for the gathering at Mimi’s restaurant on Thursday. I decided we could probably take a taxi after we park our car at the Amphitheater, over to the restaurant, instead of taking the bus. My email is lorikarb@cs.com and we would make every effort to join you. Please let me know if this is ok-and, if you receive this message. Both of us would like to order the bleu cheese walnut salad—if you are able to include us. Thank you. Lorraine
