Looking forward to the 5/5 show, driving in from the Quad Cities. Weather looks pretty decent, a little cool. Here is a link to copy/paste...

I have extra pair for 5/5 if anyone interested... will be bringing my cassette collection to try and find a good home for them. Might be some weird energy in that Jerry last played in Chicago and Brent last played just down the road in Tinley Park. Remember to wash yer hands, kids - don't want no swine flu!! see ya there....

Here's some info. The venue

Here's some info. The venue is going to allow cars/buses/rvs overnight parking for $75 per vehicle. regular parking is $20. They said there will be a "grilling area" but i bet you can grill near your car if you want. I also bet they will be strict about alcohol. In years past they would make you dump it if they saw it. Don't know about a shakedown , but if they are letting people stay overnight, there will be some kind of shakedown. There aren't any campgrounds nearby. Closest ones are at least 45min. away. lot opens at 10am on monday.
May the four winds blow you safely home...

can't wait another week

hi everyone. i am really excited about next week's shows in chicago. i mail ordered for both shows and have great seats in the 7th row for the monday show. my buddy and i are staying at the wyndham. it looks like as a group we have all of the hotels covered.

i saw the dead at the rosemont in 1993. i remember we say jerry being delivered to the venue from his hotel in the back of a white ecomony van. he waived to us from the van as he entered the parking lot. we went to both shows and actually sat behind the stage for one of them.

my memory of the lot is that if you keep what you are doing cool and to yourself, you will be fine. the suggestion to not drink alcohol in the lot out of beer containers etc is wise.

i was fortunate enough to attend both of the 1995 grateful dead shows at soldier field. i still think that was the best fireworks display following the show that i have ever seen.

i sure miss jerry but can't wait to relive some old times and create some fun new ones.
