Quick updates:

1) The Monday night event has been moved to the Concorde Inn which is a LOT closer to the host hotels. (see Flyer below)

2) At the Monday night event, joining John Frinzi on stage at 5pm...some harmonica player you may have heard of, Greg 'Fingers' Taylor!!!!!!

Image

3) There is a live concert Saturday night from Raleigh, NC. I'll be at Cheeseburger in Paradise during the day but will most likely be headed back to Casa de Morgan for the live broadcast on Sirius which we can listen to while BBQ'ing and drinking mohitos. Find me at CiP or PM me for details.



4/10/08 This just in...

The Sunday night entertainment is confirmed!!! :D

4/3/08 - For Release...

“THE BEER IS STILL HERE” 2008 Bar Tour
In the great tradition of the “Party at the End of the Bar” the Detroit Parrot Head Club is pleased to announce that, in anticipation of the Mothership landing at Pine Knob on Tuesday June 10th, they will be hosting three, yes we said three, nights of unrivaled excitement.

Just remember “Livers are evil and they must be punished”.

Saturday, June 7th

We will be partying up at Cheeseburger in Paradise in Sterling Heights. There will be live music, Good food and Great friends out on the patio.

Bill has been blackmailed with some pictures he paid to have destroyed and promises us his usual brand of fun and Drink specials and the Entertainment will be flowing. As the arrangements are finalized they will be posted on the DPHC Website.

Stay tuned to the website http://www.detroitparrotheadclub.com/index.php for all the details.

Sunday, June 8th

Do you remember all the great times you had at the Hayloft in Mt. Clemens???????

The bad news is it went out of business. The Good News is it is now The Keys.

The silly people transformed this place into Key West and then asked the Detroit Parrot Head Club

to properly break the place in………………….

ARE THESE PEOPLE CRAZY ?????

This will truly be a night to remember. The owners are being held, in a back room, against their will, by the Detroit Parrot Head Club Swedish Bikini Negotiation Team. They are being forced

to furnish Drink and Food Specials for the entire night. “Damn the consequences”

Mel Boyd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Take no Prisoner Productions, is in the final stages of negotiations with several of the great national acts usually seen at Caribbean Blue & Friends and promises us her famous twist on the best beach bands that can be shamed into performing.

Melanie and her band of marauders and privateers is knee deep in the hoopla, making arrangements for the entire night’s festivities. All the sordid details will, as soon as they are finalized, be posted on the DPHC Website.

Stay tuned to the website for all the details. http://www.detroitparrotheadclub.com/index.php

Monday, June 9th

Fasten your seatbelts……………..….. It’s gonna be a bumpy night.

The Detroit Parrot Head Club is going to take over the Detroit Hard Rock Café to finish the final leg of our 2008 Tour.

Thru Special arrangements with Elvis, Jimi, Janis, John and George we are going to be having a sweet soirée at the Hard Rock Café in downtown Detroit. Help us turn Woodward into Duvall and Campus Martius into Mallory Square.

No word yet on who the Hard Rock will have on hand performing, but anything can and will happen at The Hard Rock Café.

Stay Glued to the DPHC Website for updates. http://www.detroitparrotheadclub.com/index.php

Tuesday June 10th

Forget about Motown to Margaritaville ……………….…Lets talk about Tailgating at Pine Knob.

Forget about Gypsy’s in the Palace……………………They will be a couple of miles north on I-75

The Throb at the Knob is on for 2008 Baby.

Captain Ron is pulling out all the stops, and all the pictures he was supposed to erase, to make this an afternoon straight out of a street scene from Port Royal or the Tortugas.

We will be getting in early at Pine Knob. We will have a Parrot Head Section. We will be Loud and we will be Proud.

The Detroit Parrot Head Club Will Be Stylin and Profylin with their Feathers a Flyin.

Charity Partners for 2008

Sundays charity fundraisers will go toward a playscape at the foot of the Ambassador Bridge to help those children less fortunate than us learn to start Partying with a Purpose

Monday at the HRC will be for the benefit of The Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Children’s Hospital at Detroit Medical Center.

So bring a little something extra each night and help us support them.

Remember…………………..................................……………………It’s for the Kids

Partying with a purpose since 1992.

You came to mind when the message came in, but it didn't come in as a saved number identifying you. I sent a message back asking who it was. The mystery is solved.

I'll have to check with Jimmy to see what the race schedule looks like. Probably not though cuz he usually only races on the weekends. It'll be interesting to see if getting the rig in will fly this year. The PK staff wasn't too happy with the way the club parked last time and unfortunately they came to me to complain... numerous times.

Just got off the phone with Jim. Here's the scoop. There are 2 events in Chicago around the time of the 17th. They are the weekends before and after the show. Apparently since the events are back to back weekends, the powers that be allow racers to leave their rigs at the track during the week between. Jim is racing both weekends. He says he has always wanted to leave his rig there during that week but his car has never been right enough to make it both weekends without a trip home inbetween. Fortunately for him and unfortunately for us, he has the thing dialed in now. Soooooooooooooo, your rig is sounding pretty inviting. I'll keep you posted for sure.
