NYC Mayor Officially Proclaims Today As “Phish Day”

It’s been a wild run, folks, and Phish will officially complete their thirteen-night residency at Madison Square Garden tonight in true fashion. Not only is that the longest streak of consecutive shows to take place at The Garden, but the band perfected the run without a single repeat. Each night of the Baker’s Dozen presented a new flavor donut, which translated to the night’s setlist theme. This inevitably created a “can’t miss” atmosphere that drew thousands of fans to the city for the final weekend’s sold-out shows. On Friday night, the Vermont quartet celebrated their 50th show at the 20,000+ person venue–another huge accomplishment, to say the least. While this run has been historic for fans all over the world, New York City has especially reaped the benefits of having Phish in town.

Tonight certainly marks an important moment in Phish history, for all the reasons mentioned above. We’re not the only ones thrilled by Phish’s NYC residency, as the NYC Mayor’s Office tweeted that today, August 6, 2017, is officially “Phish Day.” Their message reads: “Thanks for the memories we shared, we’ll never forget either,” with a photo of Team Phish backstage at Madison Square Garden beneath a large sign that celebrates their 50th show on Friday. Thanks Mayor Bill De Blasio!

Here’s a close up of the “Phish Day” proclamation:

Tonight, the Phish will return for night 13 with a “pink glaze with rainbow sprinkles” donut, and still hundreds of songs to choose from in their ever-expansive songbook. Thank you Phish, we can’t believe we’ve made it this far.
