"all you can sing" buffett

yes, my fellow parrotheads, jimmy buffett did rock charlotte yesterday...
...but that's only half the story.

because, at a buffett concert, you are part of the show.
self-expression dances & sings as wildly as the landsharks flow.

i'll allow the pictures to speak for themselves (for the most part), below:


the sing-along begins early (with tailgating)






.
........can you find that "lost shaker of salt"?
















below: brothah dustin and melissa: love, love, love
below: brothah dan and lori: love, love, love







.................below: pirates of the carolinas



more tailgating pics








.......below: please... do not try this at home
....or, if you're the one holding the tap,
at least pretend to stay focused!







...............yes, there's always that one, stray
........................red sox parrothead...
........................somewhere in the mix


the "buffett for president" platform: "a tiki bar in every garage"












tailgating 101
....below: melissa, mike and karen




below: dustin, melissa, karen, mike, lori, dan, deb, moi, jean
with a couple of fin-headed strap-hangers (background)





































a scalper's paradise ($20 [or less] will get you in)

...if... you can get by the guards

at some point (shockingly), an actual concert occurred.

















...below: the typical parrothead perspective













below: fins to the right?











if you've never sung "fins" with thousands, then plan on doing it at least once in this lifetime. ..in fact, "singing" isn't the right word -- it's more like "swimming in a fintasy world of buffetted proportions."
____________________________

epilogue: it is important to "pace yourself" at jimmy buffet tailgates. ..only 37.5% (3 out of 8) of our group actually made it into the concert. ..lesson: friends don't let friend drink moonshine prior to shooters of crown royale. ..just say: "not now."
