I ‘ll be there. Looking forward to it. For a few years before this year, the band was at the bottle and cork in Dewey beach for the anniversary of Jerry’s passing. I don’t recall them doing anything ‘special’ because of the date so I’m not expecting anything again this year. I grew up spending my summers on the island south of A.C., Ocean City, so I am also looking forward to hitting Corson’s Inlet the next day. It’s on the south end of Ocean City. It’s as good as it gets and a great place to watch the sunrise which I am certain I will not be seeing the morning after Dark Star plays their hearts out once again.

Nice! You’re the same vintage as my son and daughter. We would head there as often as we could until my parents sold the house a couple of years ago. Haven’t been back since.

My mom still owns property on marsh/bayside. Beautiful property. I can’t make Trop but we are doing a weekend there with her next weekend. Excited. Gonna do some Mack and mancos Pizza or I mean Manco and manco pizza. Also some curly fries but I like the fresh cut.

Thanks for the reminder. Yea Mack and Mancos pizza, definitely. My parents owned since ‘68, south end. They had a sweet spot also. Between 47th and 48th. Two extra side streets, no duplexes, not many rentals. Dad sold after mom had a stroke. Sad. A lifetime of memories in that town.

Yea, I know but I called them Mack and mancos for a lifetime. I remember the husband and wife that started the business. The one they ran on the boardwalk was always the best one to go to. Something about the grand kids fighting led to the name change? I’m not sure, I just remembered it as a ridiculous story. Money is thicker than blood.

I spent many a summer in Ocean City also, up until 3 years ago.18th and Haven. Actually saw my first DSO show there in 2002 at the Music Pier. And Rick that weekend at the Marsh/ Bayside for Dark Star was one for the ages. Unforgettable. We were so much older then were younger than that now. Congratulations on your news I received!

If you watch the movie ‘Eddie and the cruisers’, there’s a scene where the Ocean City Music Pier is in the background. There’s other scenes filmed around the Somers Point area also. Not that any of this has anything to do with Dark Star Orchestra playing in Atlantic City on August Ninth.

Jeez did everyone spend summers in Ocean City growing up?  (I did.). When I went back years later at 19, it was only then that I realized why there were so many liquor stores on the traffic circle before the bridge to get to Ocean City.

 

As for food in Atlantic City, 3 words: White House Subs.

We went to the Ncaa basketball championship at the meadowlands in 1996 and sold our student tix(UK made us show up to get our tix) then headed to Atlantic City and stayed at the Trump Taj Mahal. It was freezing cold out, no one at the casinos and 1 block from the boardwalk you were likely to be shot. AC is a 3rd world country if not on the boardwalk area.

Come out of OC at 34th street, turn right onto Garden State Parkway. I own that telephone pole. DUI. True story.

 

Thats 1 way not to be robbed. Run into a telephone pole. Smart move unless they see it happen then they will run to u and take your wallet before the cops get there.

It actually was not a good night. I drove right through that pole, spent eight days in the hospital. My best friend was with me. Exactly two years and a half hour later, he was killed in a car accident. He was an excellent drummer. I managed to get him to one Dead show, 3/29/87. I remember asking him, during the show, what his take was on The Grateful Dead. He said they’ve been playing together so long, they know each other’s moves so well, everyone knows what everyone is doing.

Enough of that. Any requests for songs to hear in Atlantic City? Hopes? Dreams? Wishes? Prayers? 

 

Under info for the show on Ticketmaster it says "4 HOUR SHOW" so I'm hoping for a recreation of any show from the 72-74 period!

Just an FYI.  98% of DSO shows are 4 hour shows with the exception being accoustic shows.  They will just add fillers if its a short dead show they are recreating.  Original DSO setlists usually end with a standard 1 song encore while on recreations they will do the dead encore, announce the show, and do 1-5 or more additional songs.  :)
