  1. Get two in a month in 97. None since. Lesson learned.

     

    Strangest ticket: Facing the wrong way parked on the right side of the street. Christmas morning at 2:25 am no less. I stopped at a buddies on the Eastside for some Xmas drinks. With all the snow and the direction I was coming from it was easier to park that way. I stayed the night and in the morning found the ticket. 

     

    The woman at City Hall looked at and said " In my 23 years. I've never seen this." I told her I was sorry someone had to work Christmas, but c'mon.

     

    To my surprise, she dismissed it.


  2. I think I understand what you're getting it. First, you may simply just acquired a higher tolerance over the years. It effects everyone differently. With steady drinking, sometimes you can fall over the edge into sloppiness out of nowhere. Depends on so many variables. 

     

    I will say that if your friends behavior when they're pounding drinks bothers you, then you may have evolved passed that. I know one guy who turns into an emotional 15 year old when he gets a buzz on. "Whooaz" this and "B*tches" that. He's 49 too. Has patio furniture as well lol. 

     

    Don't overthink it. Change your scene if you feel the need or simply adjust as you go. Do whatever makes you feel comfortable. Cheers!

    Absolutely true.  The protest movement took a decidedly violent turn after the killings at Kent and Jackson State as various anti-war and civil rights groups splintered into a myriad of smaller groups, some of which advocated violence like bombings and killing the police.   Thank you, Richard Nixon.  May you roast in hell.

    As Hunter S Thompson said of Nixon after his death: "He was so crooked that they had to screw him into the ground"

     

    Here's a great book on the splinter groups of that period. Fantastic read.

    At this point I'm still leaning towards there won't actually be a season this year

    Totally agree. I feel that everyone just assumes that the NFL is teflon and September is so far away. Reality may tell a different story.  I'd be really surprised if the season starts on time. I just don't see it.

    The Philly show was also amazing!

    Oh God yes. Great Scarlet/Fire.

    It was so hot. We parked early. Some Heads walked by dripping wet. I asked them what was going on and they said there was a community pool a block or so away. Really? It was true. I can't remember but maybe it was a 1.00 to get in. Heads took over the pool and the party was on lol.

     

    We swam for hours and then came back to the lot to continue the party, refreshed and ready to go. Fantastic Loser and Blow Away that night as well. Last event ever at JFK.  They sent it off in style.

    I disagree but that's what makes the world go 'round. :)

     

    Was this in 89? I think that Jerry was at his best in 1989, to include the show at Rich Stadium.

    7/4/89 at Rich. They always played well the hometown. Great scene too!

    I don’t recall this at all. I watched on my tv but I lived in NT at the time. I was sure it was ABC/cnl 7 though..?

     

    It was live on CTV at 5 and tape delayed on ABC at 8.

    That sounds right. On the south side of Main St. Big fixed glass windows up front, I think. I’m sure it’s gone by now or I’d  try  track it down next trip back. 

    Placey's.  Closed in 2001. Great dive bar. Cheap drinks and an atmosphere that encouraged rowdiness.  Fun times.
