I've made the big screen a few times. The best was when I was at Margaritaville Las Vegas, they were playing scenes from previous concert tailgates. I looked up at the TV and saw my friends gathered around our tiki bar. Not sure what show that was from but it was pretty cool.

In Old San Juan PR just about anything is in walking distance. Make sure you make it to El Morro which is the old fort on the NE side of the city. Its also a US National Park.

What about a smaller tourney with all the Albums going against each other.

Just an idea to keep my mind off the snow........

Right next to Holiday Isle is Pelican Cove. We usualy stay there and walk over. The rooms at Holiday Isle main hotel are really run down. At Pelican Cove you get a much nicer room and I think every room has an ocean or harbor view.

Thanks, I always say "I was looking for a job when I found this one". I'm not sure what that means. I also quote old "Tricky Dick" and say "you wont have me to kick ar...

So, my job was "eliminated" today

Just another victom of the sub-prime mortgage meltdown. The good thing was that it came at 4:00 pm and I had been at the bar since 1:00 pm. I knew it was coming but just not so quickly. They did send me a nice email and a pre-recorded message on a teleconfrence for me and the others who got the ax t...

I just got back from Vegas this am @ 5:45. The street party was great. The Gambling was good. The drinking was excessive. The concert......we'll, lest just say I've seen it all before. Too many cover songs, too many songs off the yellow albulm. A few good spots here and there but I'm glad I went for...

I leave for the airport in 2 hours.

I find myself so excited I barely sit still. Its the kind of excitement only a man on his way to Vegas to see Buffett with his friends can feel.

Yes I will miss my wife and kids..................but I will some how manage :wink: .

Better get your fill of Holiday Isle and the Tiki Bar while you can. I heard they are only taking reservations through Easter and then bringing in the wrecking ball to make way for some condos which the keys desparatley need(sarcasm) :-?

CONFIRMED! I just got the green light from the wife and I am headed out on the 26th with a couple of buddies. This will be my 6th Buffett concert in Las Vegas, but I dont think anything will top last time poolside at the Flamingo. My friend is kind of a "shooter" at the Flamingo and has his comps al...

My buddie bought one for his pool side tike bar at home and its awesome! The drinks are as good if not better than what you would get at a bar. It beats anything you would make with a blender.
