Last Saturday we went to see Jimmy Buffett for the 5th year in a row. If you’ve never experience tailgating at one of these events, well, it’s sort of hard to explain.
There are costumes.
Lots and lots of costumes. We call this one on Dale A Pirate Looks at Sixty. If you’re a parrothead you’ll get the reference.
People dress as pirates and mermaids and hula girls. Men wear bras and women flash their boobs and crazy things happen.
There are games. People create board games like Wheel of Fortune. And Shotz of Luck. You play these games and they give you food and drink.
People build blenders that run on weed wacker mowers.
And cook all kinds of delicious food – there is lots of food in the Buffett parking lot. There are cheeseburgers and clams.
There are huge sausages and snacks of all kind.
Of course there is some drinking. I always bring a nice big bottle of Patron.
Other people shotgun beer.
And drink from skis with shot glasses attached to them.
Everyone is in a good mood and super friendly.
Is there any wonder it’s my favorite day of the year?
