Review by Tbone

Tbone I recall the stars being aligned for this one. I had just set myself up in an apartment within walking distance to/from Fiddler's Green. Therefore my apartment turned into the gathering place for our crew.

The show was pretty good with Piper being the big highlight for me.

What happened at set break I will never forget. My friend got us a couple of beers and mentioned that last call was coming up so i decided to get two more so that we had something to sip on for the second set. I decided to go upstairs to the concessions behind the top of the lawn. As I'm wrapping up my transaction Phish comes out and starts the second set off with Piper. There is a crowd of people heading to the stairs that I came up on and so it is crowded all of a sudden. I look to my right and see there is a entrance into the top of the lawn so in order to avoid the crowds I head that way. I go through the opening and there I am on the top of the lawn smack dab in the middle looking right down to the stage. I start traversing down the lawn to meet with my friends and while navigating through the crowd I loose my footing and start sliding down the lawn on my ass with both beers in my hands. People are getting out of the way for me and I make it all the way to the cross walk that separates the lawn from the seating. I stand up with about 3/4 of one beer left and 1/2 of the other with a lawn towel wrapped around my lower body. People are kind of standing around scratching their heads wondering what the hell just went by them. I took the blanket off and walked to meet up with my friends back on the lawn. When I reach the crew I find my friend and give him a 1/2 full beer. I told him "sorry I didn't bring you a full beer but the craziest thing just happened to me" He starts cracking up and says "Dude, I saw the whole thing."

Oh the memories, another classic show with friends but I will never forget sliding down that lawn like that.
