I gotta fly to St.Somewhere
I gotta go where it’s WARM!
Boat Drinks ~ one of my all time favorite Buffett tunes ~ and my ringtone on Bluwaterguy’s phone. So when I heard this year’s tour name ~ Songs from St.Somewhere ~ I knew we were in.
Last year’s concert and tail gate was so much fun, I was just hoping this year’s would measure up.
Jimmy usually comes in the midst of summer, when it is HOT, but this year he came the end of April!
Weather last year was super nice, but this year the weather was incredible. Really one of the nicest days all month. And, we had center stage seats with parking in the “VIP lot” ~ oh, oh, oh!
So this year was again the event trifecta ~ fantastic weather, nice tailgate and a great concert. Only the second stop on the tour, so Jimmy and ‘Reefers were having fun working out the show.
The big projection screen was back, along with the very cool acoustic set ~ and four new songs from the Songs from St.Somewhere album due out in July. The crowd loved the new stuff and of course I’m in for the new album.
A new tiki bar sign for this year. Lots of tailgate nibbles, with brownies and tropical shortbread cookies for dessert. The cookies are a really easy to make recipe from my friend Val. I varied the toppings from her recipe, making them tropical with coconut, apricot and pineapple on top. Here are some tailgate pics ~ with more on the Facebook page, including more concert shots and some from the always entertaining parking lot.
It was a perfect Buffett concert experience. Wonder how we can top it next year 🙂
