Last Thursday, the Parakeet and the Huz were given serious V.I.P. treatment. Certainly an new experience for the two of them – They went to a Jimmy Buffet Concert.
The Parakeet picked the Huz up from work and they drove down South and met some friends of the Keets’ parents at a hotel. There, they sat and had a couple drinks before getting in a town car to head over to the concert. There were eight of them total. When they got to Toyota Park, they went to a special V.I.P. Parking Lot. Seriously -those exist.
Here they opened the back of the big Escalade and ate and drank with their new friends. It should be noted that the people who had these special tickets plan events. The Hosts, in fact, work for Margaritaville. So, the Parakeet and the Huz were on the trip because a client had backed out …lucky for them!
So, after eating in the parking lot for a bit and taking in the hilarious Parrot Heads (dancing on top of an RV with a Pirate Flag), the group picked up their tickets from Will Call – where they also received Hospitality Passes. Those passes put them in a fun room filled with beach balls, snacks, and a margarita bar. Most of the band was there meeting people. It was a great time. Then right before the concert, they walked down to the floor of the stadium and found their seats – super close to the front.
JIMMY WAS SO GREAT!
He came out alone and sang “Whatcha got cookin’?” Then his band joined him. He was barefoot. It was such a simple, fun show. The Huz said it was his favorite concert ever. They danced together. Somehow the Parakeet ended up with Palm Tree beads around her neck. He ended the night with “Margaritaville”.
By the end of the night, the Parakeet was definitely wearing out. Lots of standing for the uber-pregnant. But she made it and everyone around them just couldn’t believe she was there at all – so they were extra nice. Only two strangers rubbed her belly for “good luck”.
If you get a chance to see Jimmy Buffet live, he is so fun – Go, go, go! And wear something fun – like a Hawaiian shirt or a shark fin on your head.
