Coney Island Was the Perfect Venue for Futhur

Fireworks during the Friday 7/13/12 show

When you are going to see Furthur these days you have a pretty good idea of what you are going to get. If you are a fan of the Dead, it is hard not to enjoy Bobby and Phil on stage with extremely talented musicians playing Grateful Dead tunes. It takes awhile to get to Coney Island from Manhattan; however, since Coney Island is the ending point for the D, F, N, and Q lines, all you have to pay to get out there is the cost of a subway ride. It would cost you at least $50 to get to and from almost every other large outdoor venue around the city. The parking lot outside of the MCU stadium was one of the most raging lots I’ve ever seen. It was a paradise for Deadheads with cash to burn. Some of my top purchases were my grateful dead door mat and coozies.
