I take the train to the city every 12/9 and visit with the folks at Strawberry Fields across from the Dakota.


When we were younger we'd walk to the 72nd St. entrance where they'd put up a little guard shack. We'd walk to the middle of the street (not too close) with beers in our hands and look at the guard.  The guard would look us over then give us a little nod. And we'd pour the beer out onto the street. All twelve ounces. Took a few seconds. Sometimes stopped traffic. Usually they wouldn't blow their horns at us. They knew.
