My one and only New Years show. How sweet it was,and quite an adventure getting there and back from L.A. And to think there's DH's who've never seen the Dead let alone a New Years show. I 'll consider myself blessed! I remember the audience howling during Watchtower.

I was with a large group of bay area friends about 30 fThis was the last of four New Years I was lucky to have attendedeet from the stage. I brought sourdough breads from Marin and aged cheddar. Others brought organic farm fresh vegies and wine. We had a picnic there on the Oakland floor. A good friend arrived with a big bag of Northern Californias best and the night was just beginning. It was heaven from let the good times roll to the 2nd set clasic start of sugar mags and a new years Dew! It was the best of times.
