Okay, I’ll admit it… that was cool! FOX, ESPN, CNN, the NFL network, the Playboy Channel, CMT, the Food Network, Spike TV, MTV, and about 413 other TV and radio networks all made our city look pretty good, and now we can count down to the next big thing to come!

And I know just what it is!!

After a ten-year absence, JIMMY BUFFETT returns to Jacksonville in just days!! The Beaches A1A Parrothead Club has planned several events to coincide with this occasion!! Even if you don’t have a ticket to the concert, you can join the fun!!

The highlight of the pre-concert festivities will be the TAILGATE PARTY starting at noon on Monday, February 21!! (If you’ve never been to a Buffett tailgate party, let’s just say that football fans could learn a thing or two!!)

Jacksonville Fairgrounds
Starting at noon!

$15 per person

(Advance tickets only… no tickets sold at the gate!)

There will be food, drinks (really?!), DJs, and I will start playing around 2:30!! There will be give-aways, contests, special guests (?!?), and a LOT of PARROTHEAD PHUN!!!

Remember, you need to buy your tickets in advance…

Now HERE is what is going on THIS week:

Friday (Feb. 11) one of my favorite authors will be in the area… TIM DORSEY will be at the Book Mark in Atlantic Beach to sign copies of his new novel, Torpedo Juice (I laughed out loud! Great book!). After you meet Tim, drive a few miles south to Bogey Grille in Ponte Vedra, where I will be playing solo from 7 – 11 (or later if the crowd is yelling, screaming, and doing shots!)

Saturday (Feb. 12) RIP TIDE will play at Twisted Sisters on Beach Blvd. in Jax Beach from 5 – 8pm… it’s the Beaches A1A Parrothead Club’s annual Mardi Gras Blowout!! They’ll have beads, prizes, and lots of tequila (what a combination!)… come check out the new band in a new venue for a dangerously good time!!

(PLUS… you can pay for your TAILGATE PARTY tickets at the Mardi Gras Party!! Two birds – one stone – how convenient!)

That’s a lot of information, but I’m sure you can grasp it all… I can’t believe I didn’t even have time to tell you about when Craig and I were joined on stage Friday night by the CORONA BIKINI TEAM CALENDAR GIRLS (and wonderful backup dancers and percussionists they were!)!!

Friday – (Tim Dorsey at the Book Mark, then) Bogey Grille from 7 – 11 (solo)

Saturday – Rip Tide at Twisted Sisters from 5 – 8… Mardi Gras Party and deadline to buy your tickets for the Jimmy Buffett Tailgate Party!

Now you’re Caught Up!!
