Thank you all for the replies !

I never really go to downtown but If I go I always had to get one of those 10$ an hour parking slots. I will certainly not get one of them this time. That was WAY to expensive.
But since you said I should find free on-street parking I hope there will be some sport left.
Would my can be safe on the street in downtown though?

I will look into the rail to downtown. Should be safe I hope ( never used it before). Thank you for that as well!

Are you serious about this? Would not surprise me if they tried to beat the money out of the people !!

Parking in the immediate area around MMP is a gyp. That's why the alternative suggestions.

Park a few blocks away and walk (street).
Who knows how far away you will have to park to find a lot or garage that isn't charging an insane fee for "Event Parking"

Hope you enjoy the concert at Minute Maid. And you'll want to be sure to come back for the Astros' 2009 opener. It's going to be great!
