Welcome to

Every year, the Parrot Head Duffers and friends start the Jimmy Buffett weekend with a Saturday party at Suzanne and Paul's house.  (Frank's Daughter and son-in-law)  This year, T&A and his brother met us at the Concert. The party started in the yard at 12:00 O'clock, 3 hours later, the party moved on to a Tailgate Party.  We were blessed with 87 degree weather.  In past years, we sweated in 1999, we froze at the October 2001 concert and we were soaked with rain at 2 other concerts, so we really enjoyed this hot day.  Richard Roeper did a great job describing last year's concert. Bob Gendron, posted a good description of the 2010 concert in the Tribune
