What's the youngest person you've painted at a show?
I've painted numerous kids at Buffett and scores of kids have had me paint their faces at events here.
If I wasn't fishing in this all day rain,I'd be home doing something stupid.

HAAAAAA!!! I just spit my coffee all over the keyboard. HAAAAAAA!!!!
While I have numerous mothers in my life, including you of course, my children currently have only one. I'm bringing them to this show so they can experience what Daddy considers fun. I'm looking for the full experience here. It would be incomplete if they didn't have a woman they barely know unsuccessfully trying to help keep them in control. That's the Bristow way!!!

Still trying to figure out how I'm going to explain Duckett and Bonzo to them though.... They're old enough to not understand that. :lol:

Maybe it's because in spite of all the work we do, it's the child in us we really value.

Bristow. Hmmmmm. I might be tempted to return. It used to be a lot of fun there until they
started to discourage tailgating. Anybody been there recently? Has it gotten any better? :pirate:
Who's got the rum?

What they said!
They did not allow canopies (but extra large umbrellas were fine [smilie=noeyedear-shrugging.gif] ) for his last show there. My issue in the past has been the heat & lack of shade but I'm thinking the heat shouldn't be an issue in May 8)
Really hope you can make it with the tiki bar!!
You're only as young as you are right now. Make the best of it!

I saw every show here from when it opened through 2013. Stuck it out through storms, brutal heat, the tailgate ban and return of limited tailgating. But I decided enough was enough. It's just such a hassle now with the late opening parking lot, traffic being backed up on Wellington Road and beyond etc. There was a time I'd have put that parking lot right up there with any of the other "great" ones on the tour. But no more. If I just wanted to listen to Jimmy's music I'll turn on the concert on XM. But as much effort as I put into tailgating, coordinating with "Buffett friends" and all the other logistics I can't justify that energy for about 4 hours of tailgating. I know I sound like a spoiled kid but that's how I feel and it's just not the same for me anymore. I'm very fortunate in that I can travel to see Jimmy at other venues so I haven't really missed Stone Ridge/Nissan/Jiffy Lube that much. They killed the vibe for me. I truly hope everyone going has a great time but it's just not for me anymore.
It was too much tequila . . . . or not quite enough.

It was a case of mistaken identity. John Cleese thought he was meeting Chuck Norris and the surfpirate thought he was at a "Cheers" convention and he was meeting john Ratzenberger. Nobody had the heart to tell them, so they just took the picture and both left happy.
