There'll be a music festival in Nashville. Two musicians don't like their slots and spots in the festival. One of them offers to set up their own stage outside the borders of the festival zone and the other one asks if it is legal.

- Is this even legal?
+ Not completely. Look, you want that 11:00 A.M. slot at toilet town(referring to the toilets near the stage), you go ahead and take it. But if you're willing to work around the letter of the law just a little bit... (without finishing his sentence the other guy talks)
- All right. Okay.

(Nashville)

Does "take it" mean "accept your legal place" or "experience that unpleasant stage"?

Thank you for your help.

    Yes, both of those things.
