its a very very nice plush old tymie theater and i dont think ive ever felt like i had a bad seat in the place. they used to have a restaurant w a few sidewalk cafe tables about a block away where u could order marshmallows for roasting and they would bring them to the table w a teeny weeny hibachi grill about the size of one charcoal brickette which was lit and buring hot. then u would take a marshmallow put in on the little wooden skewer they brought w the whole set up and toast marshmallows over the table top hibachi w ur pals right there on the upper west side at a table on broadway and 75th or whichever corner it was on! superb!!! i always liked the staff at the beacon too- they are soooooo nice- i just saw steely dan there in oct or nov or sometime in the very recent past and they let me in w my janspot backpack which was stuffed w my sleeping bag and everything. i even had a zip lock baggie (not kidding here this really happend) w about 3 T. of baking soda in it (for hygiene purposes) and the door guy unzips the pack, looks in there at the baggie w white powder in it and about a zillion other odds and ends (vitimin and aspirin bottles, altoids tin, plenty of other suspicious looking gear) and zips it back up and hands it to me like nothing at all was going on and lets me in. i also like that they let u out the back lobby door into a velvet roped off area on the sidewalk on amsterdam ave.

which is for smoking and ive smoked herb in that little velvet rope pen every time and they never say shit about it! the photo is of me outback the beacon w equipment truck parked on amsterdam ave. i love that place...


Ok, now this is off the subject, but seeing your picture of the truck and the "in memory of Ramrod" got me recalling something. I was in a liquor store in Santa Monica, and there on the wall is a gold album for Workingman's Dead, and in the frame is a little placard that says 'presented to Ramrod'. How it got there I don't know, and I wonder if Ramrod knew about this

Monday - Saturday for me...
GDTS did their best with what they had (to the user who steers clear...). I have AA center and CC Phil side from them on Monday/Tuesday, and am very grateful. I doubled down and let them know of the rest to share the love! Boston not long away now!

I will be there on the 15th! A stroke of luck put me in New Jersey for work on the 16th and 17th. Coming in early to hopefully see the show. I still need a ticket if anyone has an extra.

Thanks!

if anyone needs a room, try the RedRoof Inn Secaucus NJ, 10 minutes from the lincoln tunnel, under $100 per night, well worth a short drive to save some $$$

in for the last two nights for sure. Possibly one other; if not an after party or a quiet meetup with friends from this site is definitely in order.

Is there a meetup spot or a place to fly the flag.

I am going to the last 2 nights, too. Would love to meet up with folks along the way. I have never seen a show here so only know what I have discovered on internet. Looks to be several bars in the vicinity, as well as other spots to kick it.
Right now, I can't read too well...

I am so excited to head to NYC for the thu-sunday shows! April 12,13,14rth
Coming from norcal- have seen so many shows- but none at the Beacon. Is it as small as the Warfield?
Also- are the tickets GA on the floor? But assigned in the balconies?
