Wharf Rats stuff

@ Freebird914...Try the link below. It's to the latest Wharf Rats newsletter and its got contact info for Warren, the treasurer/merchandise guru.

Also, if you go see any Furthur, Phil & Friends, Dark Star Orchestra, etc. show, the Wharf Rats will have a table under a yellow banner with all sorts of goodies.

One show at a time.

Me and My Sponsor

(with apologies to John Phillips)

Me and my Sponsor, went drivin’ down,
Southern California, San Diego bound,
We stopped over in West L.A.
That being’ the point way past half-way,
You know Happy Hour’s a trigger time of the day.

Went to a Meeting 12 Steps up on the wall
We sat down, smiles ‘round to all
Eight hours of driving, my neck and shoulders hurt,
Needing a neck rub, I began to flirt
Someone said, “She’s a newcomer, leave her alone, you jerk!”

West L.A. dope fiends, they’s all around,
With facelifts and money, they’re loaded down.
The 7th Tradition in this town must be insane!
Bein’ two strangers, we had to give our names.
I said, “He’s Alkie Bill and I’m Dope Fiend James.”

My Sponsor sat there grinning,
I stared at the floor,
But I spied me a movie star, and then two more.
“Is that Johnny Depp?”
Oh no! It couldn’t be!
I know Johnnie, he ain’t nothin’ like me!
I’m as crazy as a Frisco Fiend can be!

One of those “dope fiends,” he starts to draw,
Sketches of the movie stars, they never saw
Leaned into my Sponsor, said, “This Meeting’s been sold!”
He gave me a nudge and towards the door we strolled.
Sure 'nuff paparazzi was lurking out there in the cold

I love the 12 Steps, more precious than gold
I love my Sponsor, his stories never get old
Fooled them paparazzi
Fooled ‘em good, ya know!
Told ‘em they’d better hurry,
Or they’d miss Russell Crowe
Comin’ outta a SAA Meeting down the road!

In the meantime check THIS out

no

but it varies as to how many people from a particular group are hanging out at any particular moment. In any case we're glad you're here, and in my experience this tends to liven up when people start wanting to meet at shows.
