Living Like Jimmy Buffett

Summer is here, so Jolly Mon Vacations and friends headed down to Alpine Valley, WI for his outdoor show. Alpine Valley is known by Jimmy’s fans or “Parrotheads” as one of the best tailgating venues on the circuit. This year, we brought a giant mobile Tiki Bar along with us! We set up the Tiki Bar in the parking lot, and people stopped in for free drinks, jello shots, beads, and t-shirts. We had fun meeting people from all over. Bikini tops and grass skirts were the order of the day, and “Parrothead Madness” ensued the entire area.

From giant shark fins atop trucks, to full blown Tiki Bars with sand and palm trees. Everyone dresses the part, or dresses the entire area where they perch. Wild and crazy games, dancing and music at every turn. NOTHING compares in comaraderie, friendliness, or wacky behavior when it comes to Buffett tailgating!

Jimmy’s band, The Coral Reefer Band was even in the parking lot signing autographs in the hot Wisconsin sun. It was a great day to celebrate Summer, hear some great music and have fun together.

As Jimmy would say, “The Tiki Bar is open!”
