Garcia gets own S.F. Dead zone

From New York Daily News:

Garcia gets own S.F. Dead zone
SAN FRANCISCO - Call it a "deadication."

Jerry Garcia's hometown has named a 600-seat amphitheater in his memory.On the bill for the grand opening Saturday were Jefferson Starship, David Gans and master of ceremonies Wavy Gravy, who like Garcia, has been honored with his own flavor of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream.The amphitheater is in a park in the same neighborhood where Garcia grew up and started his strumming.

On Wednesday, some of the Grateful Dead guitarist's artwork was installed at San Francisco City Hall as part of an inaugural exhibit for a new gallery.Garcia died on Aug. 9, 1995, from heart trouble brought on by sleep apnea.
