    Damn. That's why you need to own your space. Phil could try a new location, but he is getting up there. Either way, it had a nice run.


    • Terrapin Crossroads was a destination place, not just to see Phil or various Grateful Dead offshoots, but for a variety of other fantastic musicians from that area and afar. You could see musicians perform outdoors on a Sunday afternoon, for free in the bar/dining area or in the Grate Room that held 300 people and had a superb Meyers Sound system.

      I wonder if the city of San Rafael (and SFO in general) ever did an economic impact study of TXR and the Grateful Dead. There were quite a few times that I’d fly up there, rent a car and stay 3 or 4 hotel nights just to catch some $50 - $90 shows at TXR, Sweetwater and other venues in SFO. Even without TXR; visit Marin County if you’re in the area. It’s really a beautiful place.
