Many of you guessed correctly that Dale and I went to a Jimmy Buffett concert last Thursday. It was so much fun!! The tailgating is over the top and when it comes to a concert, well, that man does not disappoint.
So, let’s talk about the tailgating. Seriously, these people do it up right. It’s all about hanging with friends – some you haven’t made yet – eating great food and partying. The parking lots are full of scenes like this one:
People just gathered around and having fun.
If you’re familiar with the public drinking laws in Massachusetts, well, you understand that this is highly unusual. But the police don’t seem to mind.
Here’s Dale, ready to stroll down one of the rows. He looks like he’s ready for a good time, doesn’t he?
This guy had a bubbler full of strawberry daiquiris. I bet not many people can say they have had a drink from a bubbler in the middle of a parking lot full of sand. Truly, it’s an experience that shouldn’t be missed.
And Capt. Tony here, well, he had a whole bar set up, complete with swings. A ride on one of those swings wasn’t free but I didn’t ask the price as I had a feeling it would have been one I wasn’t willing to pay.
And speaking of friends you don’t know yet, these three guys were parked next to us and they were loads of fun. By the end of the night we were hugging each other good bye. They shared their cheeseburgers, we shared our beer and we all laughed a lot. Oh wait, I think I have a picture of their better side.
I think you can see that if you want to have fun at a Jimmy Buffett show you need to check your inhibitations at the gate and just go with the flow. I have no problem with that. Just saying.
