    The Ace in Seattle also have rooms with private baths overlooking puget sound for $160. No better deal to be had in that location from our experience.

    Someone in the comments section of that article posted by that person earlier today, mentioned the same thing about the briefcase. So you’re not alone in imagining it, if in fact you’re imagining it.

    You can walk to the market, Chihuly exhibit at space needle, free Belgian waffles and more for breakfast. Plus a fun bar/restaurant attached to it.

    Should be a good spot for that run.

    Now as for the JGB – John Kahn suggested that the JGB folded in Nov ’78
    because Garcia had had it with Keith.
    He said that in late ’78, “Jerry caught Keith stealing something inside his
    briefcase; his drugs or something. He was inside Jerry’s briefcase and then
    he was gone right after that. I’m sure he would have been gone anyway; it
    was in the works that they were going to split up. He made Jerry
    mad…Keith would burn me and Jerry out of drugs all the time.”
    I don’t know if Kahn’s memory is accurate here (I had assumed it was just
    scheduling reasons that the JGB stopped in Nov ’78, because the Dead had a
    heavy tour schedule from then til mid-February), but it is another piece of
    the puzzle to consider.

    I don’t know just how early the Dead started thinking of dropping Keith.
    (Weir started playing slide guitar in April/May ’78, I think – haven’t
    pinpointed the first show.) It seems to have been a gradual decline on
    Keith’s part – he experimented a little bit with organ/electric piano
    sounds occasionally in early ’77, but that side of his palette disappeared
    by ’78. And personal behavior that might have been annoying at first became
    unendurable over the course of ’78.

    That Island tour Stash is a beast. Love the last part. Definitely a top 5 version for me if I ranked Phish jams.
