Pirates & Parrotheads unite
Posted on 3 May 2008 by Rosie Reilman
Jimmy Buffett hit the Queen City this past Tuesday, and Charlotteans came out to tailgate before the show. It was great. I wish I had more photos but, thanks to the security folks, I was unable to get my camera into the amphitheater. (Next time I’ll be sure to bring a smaller camera.)
But to me the true event was the tailgating itself. It was cold, but that didn’t stop the pirates and parrotheads from coming! There’s nothing like an actual cheeseburger in paradise before hearing some island music. There were tiki bars, pirate flags flying, and rum flowing! I uploaded a few shots here on Flickr that I took in between my own tailgating. If you’d like to check it out, they’re also embedded below. My only regret: I didn’t see one person dressed up as a parrot! So sad.
