    Thanks

    I just want to say that after so many years of listening, it never ceases to amaze me how these guys can destroy my mind. I love every November for opening new doors. When you think you have heard it all, there is something new around some corner where it's been waiting to meet you. For that I thank you and I say GOD BLESS THE GRATEFUL DEAD! You have been and will always be such a huge part of my life. Nuff said

    just my thoughts

    this is a fun game.
    jerrys’ main goal in life was fun
    arena vs coliseum has been loads of fun
    wondering how the mgmt does it is fun and probably a lot simpler than we think.
    so…
    just have fun.

    peace to all
    god bless all veterans

a new song already. looks like another not too hard one. unless they change the name again.
edit-i just read the hint so even easier
anyone else suspicious of the hints this year. actual hints that make sense. something fishy is going on here

Funny how in years past that the hints used to just be descriptions. Now they practically give it away. I used to like reading other's comments for cryptic clues. Don't even need that now. Big ole beachball coming across the plate today.
Happy weekend everyone!

Strong hints are okay by me, after all I'm working. Good to get guess submitted prior to meetings. (Does not always happen!)

I looked real hard and I couldn’t find any reference to a Riverfront ARENA- that venue at the time was Riverfront COLISEUM and stayed that for many years. Very confusing, but when I saw that ARENA was one of the possible names I knew it was going to be an issue

I've now missed two on the technical name of what the venue is called. If we get the date and city right it should count in my opinion. Venues change names all the time.
Oh well....

I noted there was a discrepancy in yesterday’s venue name between dead.net and some of the other sources I use so I went with dead.net’s venue name.

Turns out I was “dead” wrong.

Venue name got me twice this year!

Sync was perfect. Charlie Miller is a saint but the Oade Brother's audience tapes are heavenly as well.

Dave is getting ready to hit us with a hard ball. This is another show I attended thanks to a FRIEND. Though he acted sick all week long at work to get the time off "He" never was, HE"S just a little CRAZY. He never FELT bad about it either. Carma got him "US" while TRAVELING down the rode.... a bad wheel delayed our planned TRIP. Another MIRACLE happens b4 we leave, he hands my BROTHER the 3rd ticket he purchased. All in all, what an experience and that TAPER section was full!

As I posited yesterday, are we sure that submissions for "arena" AND "coliseum" weren't both graded correct and included in the daily raffle? I'd like to think that they were. No reason to assume our friends are out to play a "gotcha" on us. :)

I guess we would know for sure if alan_t lets us know whether he entered the venue as coliseum yesterday.

OK, who makes the call on Dead.Net's end. I found local Cincinnati newspaper ad and post concert review and both referred to it as the Coliseum.

Arena was for the 4-8-1989 Cinci show.

Only one show for each of these venues.
This is BS. It's like doing a crossword puzzle that has misspelled words.

hi truckinup2buffalo. i'm not being negative but just wanted to say that everyone loves the 30 days and sharing thoughts/comments but please take it easy on the over the top (and even capitalized) obvious clues so that people can enjoy the journey on their own.

Glad I’m not the only was who obsesses over the good ‘ol Grateful Dead!

Checked every resource out there including a call to Cincinnati City Hall lol. That was a funny call, “so hey I’m trying to pick the venue for todays 30DOD, what is the name of the room they played back on 10.2.76…lady was like bro what are you talking about hahahah.

In the end I went w dead.net archive listing even though that’s a toss up as well (ex. this years day 1), the old 30DOD from this day had it split, I even reached out to my Grateful elder council members.

Either way it’s just fun and I’m onto this sweet Miracle Fingers! Thanks 30DOD team, I need a miracle everyday!

Yesterday's track(s) were officially published on the "Live at the Cow Palace" bonus disc (2007). The Cow Palace bonus disc places them at the "Coliseum". Just in case you wanted to know.

What is going on? Again, Dead.net itself calls it Coliseum (dead.net/show/october-2-1976-0). Mary, would you please tell us how these "answers" are arrived at and how conflicts like this are adjudicated? I think the fairest thing would be to just go by date, not require the "correct" venue name in an answer, since there's ambiguity, especially with names from many years ago.

Thanks for the tutelage Slim - finding the answer myself is so much more fun than being in awe of y’all who already knew how to hunt! 🥰

Agreed 100%. Absolutely beautiful jam at the end of Crazy Fingers.
Just one thing I got to say..
You shouldn't need a Miracle to solve today..
it's real easy, believe what I say.
Life may be sweeter for this, I don't know,
Feels like DSO in Milwaukee tonight might be all right!
I got a feeling and it won't go away
Psyched up to get my Dead fix later today!

We have at least one of these a year. I’ll bet the official answer is what is written on the tape box in the vault. As far as I’m concerned they’re the same thing and until Dave suggests otherwise I always count my answer as correct

Hear, hear!
My sentiments exactly!

And btw, we haven't had an Oakland show yet this year, so maybe we'll be grinnin' this wolf in the eyes again.

This also just happened to be the venue where those most unfortunate WHO fans got crushed to death in a mad dash to the door three years later. May they all RIP…

Crazy virtuosity on lead guitar that is. And add to that a SBTM to top it all off.............well let's just say this listening experience has made for one very happy DeadHead this Friday before Veteran's Day. Thanks Dave!

I had never heard Crazy Fingers sound like a country tune, until this. Yikes.

I was at this show. Good times.

Miracle>Fingers is a strange beast -- fortunately the rara aves are the easiest birds to find in the whole aviary.

I was also at this show. I had the audience cassette tape for years and the brief feedback in verse 2 of Crazy Fingers gave it away for me. Was also the show when we got “She Belongs to Me” in set 1.
