Cool! I'll definitely check it out. I land in Vegas Friday October 17, so I'll be well rested and ready to party the 18 8)

A Zach Brown concert has been announced for Friday night at MGM. No chance of an appearance together on Saturday as ZB has a show.I. another city. However, Jimmy may be a guest in the show on 10/17.

Also, :John Fogerty playing Friday at the Palms with no tour stop on Saturday. Might he stick around and make an appearance on 10/18? (He did.open for Jimmy earlier this year).

Would be great if Fogerty pops in :o
So, about this pool party at the Flamingo---When's the best time to drop by? Is there a cover? Do tell :wink:
Any other meetings/parties going on that day?

Trip is booked and concert tickets secured. Arriving Thursday morning and leave Monday afternoon. After eight years, we're leaving the familiar confines of Hooters and expanding our horizons by staying at the Trop. Some of our other folks got a great deal at Mandalay Bay. As it is every year, it should be EPIC!!!

Flamingo pool party gets going at 11am... Tommy Rocker is usually playing by noon (last yr he was going by the time we got in at 11:30) and it just gets bigger and better as the afternoon goes on... Plenty of room to bounce around and party ( drinks are pricey, it IS vegas after all) seems everything is more $$... Great crowd, some people partied IN the pool all day - we just roam around the whole thing, its a good size outdoor area - cya there!

Maybe we should skip the cabana at the MGM pool and hit the strip / flamingo?

Perhaps make Friday the pool day -- we are going to ZBB also !

If you want to party poolside with a Buffett theme then you should definitely skip the cabana at the MGM. It's a great pool no doubt, but there won't be any concert related activities going on. Usually they do offer cabanas at the flamingo once the party is officially announced so you may want to check into that.

Just checked Ticketmaster's website...wow....great tickets available.
Would love to fit this in if the budget allows...might be a Gameday decision.

My first concert ever was Creedence Clearwater Revival. I've seen Fogerty about 6 or 7 times since Creedence broke up. One year he played the Beacon Theater in NY the same night Buffett played Madison Square Garden. I went to the Fogerty show.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

We are going to ZBB Friday night so I'm not sure we will make it to the Boat Drunks -- but we will do our best !

Any idea what time we need to arrive at Flamingo Saturday morning to get into the pool party?

I believe the hours are officially 11-6 every year. We usually show up around 2 or so. They don't cap attendance so you can show up whenever you stumble over there.
