Went back stage with my 3 year old daughter. Waved to Bob on his way off stage after the first set. Hung out waiting for him to come for the 2nd set. Waved again & said hi. He stopped for a quick visit. My daughter said "hi Uncle Bob play enjoying the ride" (Hell in a Bucket).
We parted & started walking up the hill ~ lo & behold Hell in a Bucket set opener.
I fell on the ground with my daughter & cried like a baby.
Coincidence or not, that is a big story in our house to this day!!!
This was my 1st show, loved it!!!! I had a friend from work asked me if I wanted to see The Grateful Dead and I was like ok, at that time, I did not know who they where, well when I left there I knew who they where, and will never forget. I did not see the band with Jerry Garcia again. Then I met my boyfriend who is a deadhead and he took me to see Further on Oct 7th and 8th 2011, That was are 1st date, we had a blast, and for the life of me I can't remember why I did not continue to see them over the years, well I am here to tell you I will not miss any more shows, am here to stay!!!!!
These were fun shows. The photos are not mine

Relive the moment. Anyone got a time machine handy?
My best friends family owned a balloon store. We brought up a MASSIVE canvas army tent and set up a helium tank to blow balloons for all. Before we could start, a crowd had gathered asking us for nitrous hits. We attempted to tell them that we had none but they would not believe us. We let the first guy up and said take the biggest hit you can, it's free. He sucked on that tanks tit like he was a starving baby. Squealed like a stuck pig saying that we tricked him. The whole crowd fell over laughing at him as he sat down from lack of oxygen. Ray looked at him and said, "We told you it was kids day and it was helium". Must have filled a thousand balloons that day. Luckily none hit the planes as they "Pulled back on the stick, Ever so gently"
Ah, what a great Dead show, one of my favorites! Brother Esau is a plus, I love that tune. I'm just listening to it on the archives, and it's bringing back memories. So much cool stuff going on-- and these shows were the icing on the cake topping off a really fun summer tour. Great Estimated jam to boot--worth another listen. This is totally quintessential 1987 Grateful Dead. If I could be anywhere in time and space, this very well might be the place...So if anyone invents a time machine, please PM me. Thanks.
