Xfinity Live! has been opened up for several previews this past week, but the dining and entertainment district officially opens to the public tomorrow, when Third Eye Blind (…) will perform.

We’ll have a full review on Monday. This winter, though, I got two previews of the joint. Both include just about every detail you want to know: What’s in there? How big is the TV? How much is parking? What are the food options? What are the hours?

Some additional details have been added, but for the most part this is everything you need to know about Xfinity Live!

This image (from RememberTheSpectrum.com) was taken at 3:00 P.M. today- Day 3 of the supposed final demolition. The crane is picking it apart like a crow chomping on roadkill. Poor Spectrum.

Really, the America's Greatest former Showplace is not unlike Jamie Moyer: Both are around 50-years-old, have seen one major championship, and, despite catastrophic injury, are hanging around longer than they should. Sad, really.

If the Spectrum attempts a comeback in 2012, I'm going to be really freaked out.

The Spectrum is slowly coming unraveled, sort of like LiLo after a coke binge. You can see some of it's private parts, but mostly it's just a dirty skeleton.
