This would be cool to attend...

Jerry's 70th birthday is my 39th...

What a way to celebrate, unfortunately it is not geographically desirable...

Shame...

I highly recommend going to the Curator tour with Howard Kramer. He is actually extremely knowledgeable about all of the Grateful Dead exhibit and, of course, pretty much everything in the museum, and he is a really nice guy! Paul Grushkin and I had the pleasure of meeting him in June when we both were part of a multi-media presentation about Paul's great new book Dead Letters. We had big fun there!
