Not even close. Especially when compared to the other all inclusives I've been to.

It all depends which resort you're at. I definitely had a 5 Star experience, but had to pay for it.

The place I stayed doesn't actually offer an all-inclusive package, so I was able to charge anything I wanted to the room and they wrote everything off at the end of the trip.

No surprised a red headed gremlin like yourself doesn't enjoy though.
Tambo and I were talking about the resorts in general.

I wouldn't pay to go for the shows, but I'd gladly go the week prior.

Didn't even put that together, that's not the best thing to promote

It was legit the only thing that came to mind when I skimmed over the whole announcement. That and "oh who cares?"

Not surprised by this at all, really. Seemed like the first go-around sold pretty well and the shows themselves actually looked pretty damn good. Now if they'd only release them or webcast them...we'd be talking. This will probably be the last time they do it though, cause just based on the responses doesn't sound like it's going to sell like it did last year

Good luck selling this stuff.
Phish also tours a lot less overall (less dates per year) than DMB and Phish has always been known as a band that does mini "festivals" or "getaways" for their fans. They've been doing it since the early 90s. This kind of stuff is relativley new for DMB/D+T and doubt it will be something they will keep doing unless they change DMB's tour format to be similar to Phish (20-22 shows)

The reviews from last year are all over the place. Some are saying it was an epic experience and others are saying it is a waste of money. The first group probably enjoyed it because they focused on mingling with other fans

They want you to look at tshirts and give in while you're buying your poster.

Sweet. I remember that 2 of the 3 tapes were released and that the last one was still pending. I'm glad to hear that we have all 3 now. I'll have to jump on that.

Brandi Carlisle and Bela Fleck will be there. Guess Spoon is a lock now, as well as a lot of good Bela spots.

Dave, Tim & Bela is something that's needed to happen for about 20 years now, even if it's just for a few songs.
