    Truthfully, I wasn't expecting to like it as I've too been burned out of GD for awhile. But they delivered the goods and every rump was shaking.

    Smiles all around.

    Good times in Stern Grove
    I was there and agree 100%. I thought I would enjoy it but it easily exceeded my expectations. Very cool show.

    I hear you. I’m a big fan but think it’s overdone.

    Don’t speak bad about Jerry. It’s poor form.

    RIP Michael Lang. Thanks for all.

    Still a good idea to avoid the brown acid.

    The couple next to me last night at The TTB at The Saenger cancelled their Play In The Sand trip and came to New Orleans instead and wound up seeing TTB. I call that a win.

    We're in complete agreement, TT, although I think taking advantage of a great deal in an all-inclusive without having to listen to "Dead and Slow" is a win for them. We're obviously not in an all inclusive here. We live in a walkup apartment in an old neighborhood near the centro.

    Yeah, our friends went anyway. They get to stay in an all-inclusive resort for a week for $2 grand (got 80% of their $ back). They say there's a lotta tie-die down there.

    Fair enough, gotta give credit where it is due, that IS a very generous policy, and much, much better than I would have imagined.

    (Still, the writing was on the wall as far as the Omicron atiuation goes, starting at least a couple of weeks back, I am honsetly surprised that any major public events have been allowed to go ahead since the New Year, although obviously each nation and jurisdiction has the right to set their own rules)

    In fact, the refund policy seems quite generous to me.

    CID said that that everyone with a package for the festival’s first weekend Jan. 7-10 would receive a full refund, and that anyone already at the Moon Palace resort or still planning to get there could stay for the weekend and still have their money refunded in full. Anyone booked for the second weekend, Jan. 13-16, can either stay home and receive a full refund or still elect to go to the resort and be refunded minus a flat rate of $600 a night for the stay, regardless of group size.
