Contents • • • • • • Design [ ] The ornate design of the of, common in packs today, stems from the 17th century, when and later imposed laws requiring the ace of spades to bear an insignia of the printing house., an idea imported to England by, was extended to playing cards in 1711 by Queen Anne and lasted until 1960. Over the years a number of methods were used to show that duty had been paid. From 1712 onwards, one of the cards in the pack, usually the ace of spades, was marked with a hand stamp. In 1765 hand stamping was replaced by the printing of official ace of spades by the Stamp Office, incorporating the royal coat of arms. In 1828 the Duty Ace of Spades (known as 'Old Frizzle') was printed to indicate a reduced duty of a had been paid.
I used to love going to Ace of Spades for a good show, and I would give them 5 stars up until fairly recently. I paid extra for fast passes, security wouldn't let us in early because the line was alre. Ady going because of the bad weather. Ace of Spades does have its problems. Changing your player name is awkward, and battles can seemingly go on without end. However, these issues will no doubt be ironed out as the game develops. Driver Finder there. The Ace of Spades♠ is the most spiritual card in the deck. It is the symbol of ancient mysteries, including Cardology, the sacred science of playing cards, and the card that represents transformation.
The system was changed again in 1862 when official duty wrappers were introduced and although the makers were free to use whatever design they wanted, most chose to keep the ornate ace of spades that is popular today. The ace of spades is thus used to show the card manufacturer's information. The exact design of the ace card was so important, it eventually became the subject of design patents and trademarking. For example, on December 5, 1882, George G.
White was granted US design patent US0D0013473 for his design. His ace design was adorned with male and female figures leaning onto the spade from either side. • 2015-10-19 at the. • 2014-07-15 at the.

We had a great time at the Yelp event featuring cover bands Greenday and Pearl Jam. Our gracious host Carly made sure every Elite felt welcomed in our special seating area.
Endless red jello shots set the tone to this grunge evening transporting some of us back to our college years. I never realized that tribute bands could sound exactly like the real band, especially the Pearl Jam tribute. If I closed my eyes it sounded like Eddie Vedder on stage. The young tatted-up staff of Ace of Spades was quite hospitable making this an unforgettable trip down memory lane.
Wristbands, handstamps, beverages from plastic cups made for a great evening with the sound of my shoes sticking to the bottom of the floor. This place definitely is ideal for intimate live bands appealing to all ages. I've been to several concerts here & it really depends on the night on whether i like it or not. The last concert i went to was Blue October in June & it was PACKED! It was a sold out show & felt that way!
PROS- -Amazing sound -small venue so you can see the artist pretty close up CONS- -Nowhere to sit. If you want to pay an additional $40+, you can reserve a seat. -They fill the place to capacity & you have to stand pressed up against people -walkways that are blocked off & you are yelled at if you are standing in the walkway -They sell special tix to get 'let in first' which causes the line outside to be long. Ace of Spades is turning into a money bucket.
Its annoying to regular people that buy a ticket. Also, the tickets dont say door time VS start time. If it says 7pm, the doors open at 7, not the start of the show!
They also serve food there. Its interesting when a concert is going on & the serving staff are flying by with food hitting everyone along the way. By the time food gets to you, its probably scraped against several arms at that point. Ace of Spades, you are doing too much! I've been to Ace numerous times for a variety of shows. Not sure how long the gap was since my last one, but I went and saw a show Thursday, June 21st and must say.
Not liking the changes they've made. Wondering if this is Live Nation making their presence felt. Still a nice small space, but imo I don't believe food has a place at a serious concert venue, which is how I've always viewed Ace. Gone are the small, intimate, divey vibes of the place. Was shocked to see that you now have to pay to sit upstairs. Price was $15 extra for the show I was at, don't know if that's the regular charge. Used to love posting upstairs on the railing to watch my favorite bands.
My days of being in the pit are gone and my wife definitely prefers it that way. Now they have seats upstairs. It's gotten a little uppity for my taste, but overall can't complain too much I guess. It does give me a chance to see my favorite bands in midtown Sacramento and is situated next to some great bars and restaurants to entertain yourself at before or after a show. The place is clean and well staffed and the four bars (one reserved for those who purchase premium seating) to pick your poison at is also a major plus.
Soooo many memories made at this venue! I've been here several times since my first visit in college, where I got to finally stop being a closet Metalhead and enjoy myself for once. My neck hasn't been the same since. AoP is ol' reliable when it comes to concerts downtown, and my favorite part is the upstairs bar area and people watching hub. The only downsides are how disgustingly hot it gets in here and the distinct lack of parking. Although the latter is a non-issue for me since I live so close, it's always been an annoyance for people I attend events with, and R Street can turn into a gigantic clusterfudge after shows let out.
When Ace isn't packed to the gills, it makes for a perfect show. Of course, I could say that about just about any venue. Drinks are on the pricy side, but they're still better on average than the Golden One Center. Recently I've been attending shows with cover bands like Cover Me Badd and DJ Biz Markie. In the past few years, I've noticed a distinct improvement in overall cleanliness at this venue, and more of a variety of bands. Sometimes you've heard of who is playing here, and sometimes you haven't.unless you're that music guy, I guess. The variety and ability to cater to fans of most genres is another great attribute of AoP, as is the gothic interior theme.
Four separate bars, three on the bottom floor, and one on the balcony come in handy when I've been working up a sweat dancing. Nothing a $5 PBR can't quench! The bottom line is that I'm always excited to attend a show here, because I know I'll have an awesome time! Thanks Ace of Spades for being such a Sacramento staple.
Parking Notes: Don't try parking on R street, try on S&13th and surrounding streets, metered until 10 pm unless otherwise specified. Construction as of March 2018 has also made things crap for rideshare pick up, so drop your pin on 15th after Iron Horse, or walk to B-Side on S&15th and try ordering from there. I have now been to Ace of Spades several times in my 30's which is an evolving experience. They remind me of some of the music clubs I attended when my ears were a bit younger.
Ace is located on the R Street Corridor between 14th & 15th Streets. There is no parking on site, but there are garages and street spaces in the area. Light rail is next door for even easier access. The main layout of the club is geared for small to medium sized live music events.
