My friend called Allstate Arena and there is going to be camping on Monday and Tuesday nights $40.00 a night I think or that might be both nights? I would call them though....

5/4 mail order

Still haven't received my Chicago tickets for 5/4 and I'm starting to freak out a bit. Just wondering, anybody else still waiting on mail order tickets for that show?

Re: Hippie Shop- Sunshine Daydream

I've been there and it's a very nice store- I encourage everyone to stop in and grab a fresh tie-dye or some tasty tunes! They have lotsa cool stuff... and with a fat discount like that, I just might have to stop in later this week myself...

Hippie Shop Near The Allstate Arena

I have a hippie shop only 6 miles (15 min.) from the venue. If you are going to either Chicago show, stop in the store and show us your ticket. You'll save 20% off your store purchase. This applies to everything except sale items and is good from the weekend before the shows till the weekend after. Discount is good once per customer. We sell lots of great things both Dead and non Dead related. We are kinda like a hippie general store. (No pipes though).

Come check us out!

May the four winds blow you safely home...

When I went to Phish in 2003

When I went to Phish in 2003 at the Allstate Arena, I remember there being a decent amount of security and people trying to break up tailgators. I don't know if it will be the same way with the Dead crowd though... I hope not. Super excited though. Less that 2 weeks away.
