Went with a group for breakfast during the Furthur 3 day run for NYE. Crab benedict was good but pricey. Liked the old photos of Jerry, Pigpen, etc and the herbs and fruit trees outside. Had to go because it's Phil & Jill's place.

7:30 pm, but try to get there early to grab a seat at the bar. That's the best spot for a show. Usually no line and no cover.
