“Dead Picks and Barley Pops”

The Grateful Dead's finest shows ... presented, celebrated and toasted in the Deadest of settings

Greetings fellow Deadheads! Join us as the Barley Mill presents some of the finest feasts for the ears the Grateful Dead ever laid down. We'll mark special show anniversaries, band member birthdays... ANY excuse to gather people together to (re)experience the shows, tell one another tall tales, chuckle when Jerry forgets the words, and celebrate the band that was such a large presence in our lives... or were they ever here at all? 

About "Nightfall of Diamonds" - Meadowlands Arena, 1989

In celebration of Bob Weir's birthday we'll be gathering together to experience - or maybe re-experience - Nightfall of Diamonds, a live album recorded on October 16, 1989 (Bob's 42nd Birthday) at Meadowlands Arena in East Rutherford, NJ.
