I'd like to try and have my group of misfit pirates join in the festivities. When you say "under the trees" where are you referring to?

Is that an "oh crap now I've got to change my plans" question or a "strap on the chaps and bring it on" question? :o

I may just make it across the Howard Franklin for this.

That's a "I hope I get to see you in the chaps I bought you" comment.

I hope you can make that drive across the bridge. It's been 6 years I believe.

Well, here we are, the last minute gate-crashers, as usual.

Moe & I will be flying in on Silver Wings on Friday morning (dawn patrol, yay), staying at the LaQuinta and hoping to attend the soiree at Uncle Fat's on Friday night and then on to the concert on Saturday.

Can't wait to see all our friends again and to finally meet (not meat) some folks we've been wanting to meet (not meat) for a long time!

Oh yeah, I think someone's overdue for a birthday spanking, as well. :o :wink: :pirate:

Woo-hoo!! Cannot wait to see everyone! :D

and I finally...disappear. BUT NOT YET!!

The day has finally arrived! We leave Destin Friday morning and arrive at the La Quinta after lunch. We are bringing Mr. Utley and Lulu both this year. We will be at the Uncle Fat's pre concert party hosted by the TBPHC. In light of the late gate opening, we are setting up at the La Quinta pool after breakfast with a large batch of Bloody Caesars to start your Buffett Day off right! We hope to see you there!

So how do we get into uncle fat's party? We are flying down from Charlotte tonight and staying at the La Quinta. Never been to a show in Tampa so looking forward to it.

Would love to meet up with other fans Friday night if there is a gathering somewhere!

I have a lot of people that come to the shows and don't have the equipment to crank out food or even the vehicle for it.
Below is about what I bring and have available. Of course the amount depends on the venue, as some locations really don't have fantastic areas for tailgating (Orlando now at the new Arena :cry: .)

4-6 gallons of gumbo - fresh made on the grill w/ fresh made french bread of course (sometimes even some rice)
20-40 lbs shrimp - grilled garlic parmesan and peel n eat boiled
20-30 lbs smoked and grilled sausage - soaked in Jack Daniels, garlic and brown sugar for about a week
20-30 lbs chicken wings - grilled naked with 2 or 3 sauces
10-15 lbs grilled pineapples - marinated in spiced rum and dark brown sugar
300-500 jello shots (okay thats not really cooking but they are good!) we make 10 different kinds ranging from Mojito to Tequila Sunrise....

We added bacon wrapped smoked beef brisket last year - but the time to make it was just too much, almost 20 hours for just 15 lbs...but maybe, just maybe....

If you get hungry after reading this, find us at the Big Chair with the twin 20 foot flagpoles and grab something to eat!
Holy cow, where will you guys be ;)

I've been told from some reps that they MAY let folks in earlier if cars start to show up, I guess they posted the 1:00 opening time out of fear of the normal throng showing up early. A few of us are staying at the Hampton, so if we can't
Get in before that we may swing by the LA Quinta to say phins up.
