Note: The Iron Yard is located inside the M.Rich Center downtown on MLK. It is a very beautiful industrial space with lots of artwork and cool people working there. They are donating this space to us for the weekend and are so generous to do so. The parking deck is adjacent to the building and only $3 to park on weekends (cheapest rate downtown). There is security at the front desk to buzz you in. The parking deck is at Prior & MLK (also parking for Underground). You do not have to cross any streets using this deck. Park your car, walk out and turn right. M.Rich Center is 3rd door on the right. Take the elevator to the 4th floor. We’ll see you there!
