Hey folks! My friend Stanley and I have resurected the Seattle meeting that used to gather a few years back. We are meeting at the Fremont Baptist Church on Thursday nights at 7:00 PM. These are open meetings of course and we would love to connect with other wharf rats in the Seattle area.
Send us an email (seattlewharfrats at gmail) if you would like to get on our mailing list and find out more about our meeting in Seattle. We have been meeting for about two months now and we are still very small. Probably always will be small but I want to let it be known that we are doing this meeting for any folks that are interested. Still working on it! We decided to organize this meeting beacuse when I first got sober I looked up the Wharf Rats and discovered that sadly, there was no local group in Seattle. That's when the light bulb went on and I said to myself, that's because we are not doing it!
This has been significant for me and has absolutely been a postive influence in my life. My parents named me August, after the man in the song, and my middle name was given as Dupree, after that guy in the other song about diamond blues. And man oh man have I got the diamond blues now!!!
Hit me up. I could really use some support and am always happy to give back.
Nothing left to do but :), :), :)
it can only get better
nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile

Shoreline 5/10/09 was Magical!!! Every time I go to a show, whether it is Phil & Friends or The Dead, I enjoy the Spiritual Nature of the Wharf Rat Meetings at intermission. It is such a joy to get to hang out and meet the other Wharf Rats at the table with the yellow balloons. As the years roll by, it has become a family get together. We are family. You are my brothers and sisters. I am extremely Grateful I got to experience the 2009 Dead Tour, and even more Grateful I got to enjoy it clean. One Show at a Time!!!
Thanks for all the fellowship at Camp traction, th etables, & the meetings at set break at Rothbury. You guyz & galz made my trip the most memorable festie I have possibly ever been two. Look forward to seeing me family down the road...

I'd love to know if any Rats from Ohio are going to Rothbury? I've been a WR since 1987 and had to miss this latest tour due to getting a new job and moving to Ohio. Now I'm ready for a long weekend of excellent music at a new venue (Roo just played itself out.) Looks like I'm going to drive in solo; I know once I get there, I won't be alone. But wanted to pitch my tent near likeminded souls...
Always looking for my old Tour rats 1989-1984. Anyone out there?
Thanks to all who've taken on the tables in this century and welcome to the family to those who are new. You know it's going to get stranger, so let's get on with the show!

this spring was my first sober shows, except when i was too burned out on a long tour to use on a particular night. i actually remember most of what i experienced. DC and C-Ville were all i could ask for with favorites played in..dark star, st.stephen, foolish heart, passenger, pride of cuc., mason's... and so on.
wish i had found the wharf rats long ago, but, "everything leads up to this day"
any wharf rats around the winchester, va area? contact me, please...Peace
