2016 APHC Tailgate Recap

Jimmy Buffett’s “I Don’t Know” tour stop at the Infinite Energy Center didn’t start until 8 p.m. but the Atlanta Parrot Head Club started the tailgate party about 12 hours earlier.  After putting  up canopies, spreading out food, setting up grills and decorating their areas, partygoers were treated to music  by Reggie Starret  with Denny Martin sitting in and The Gopher Broke band (fun fact  for Atlanta folks – the band’s Bobby Don wrote the “Play in the Dirt” jingle for Pike Nurseries). In spite of 90+ degree heat and a little bit of rain,  APHC’ers and guests were dancing in the street (or at least the parking lot). The Atlanta Parrot Head Club provided bottled water to tailgaters to provide relief from the heat and portable toilets were provided for another type of relief.  Lee and Debbie Simmons of Pirate Cove Radio, who broadcast  live from the tailgate, cranked up the frozen concoction machine and kept the dancing crowd well-oiled with some refreshingly cool and tasty margaritas.  As always, it was a great day of celebrating music, fun, and new and old friends. This year took on an international flair thanks to visiting new friends David and Annette from Australia, who provided their homeland’s snack Vegemite to party goers, helping make a G’day even better for their new mates.  Fins up until next year.
