Review by ZapRowsdower

ZapRowsdower Phish is back! Last pre-hiatus show was 9/24/2000 in Minneapolis. @MrsRowsdower, myself, and an old college / phish buddy jump in the car and head to Chicago in February.

We checked in at the Sheraton O'Hare and slammed a few mini bottles of Jack Daniels from the mini bar. We quickly headed out in search of food and drink. After a burger and a few beers we dropped L in the parking lot of the Rosemont as planes flew overhead.

The show itself was different than any other show I'd seen or heard before. Long, exploratory jamming all over the place. The Tweezer explored many themes but wouldn't fully develop until 8 days later. 7 Below is a monster that must be heard.

After having our faces melted we found a bar playing Phish and closed out the night there. When we got back to our hotel we found the pool was open 24 hours for hotel guests. So we went down and went for a swim at 3:00 am. It was the craziest scene with a bunch of spun Phish heads jumping in the pool at 3:00 am.

Finally we went back to up to room to crash only to find the horrible news story of the Great White fire at The Station in Rhode Island. It was such a crash back to reality from the great night we'd had with friends.

Quite the roller coaster of a day.
