Live From the Back Bay

    While we North Coasters could only listen to the grand opening of the new M’ville Casino on Radio Margaritaville, Our Man in Biloxi was there taking photos.
    Thanks, DOM Coon.

2012 Newspaper Ad

    Here’s the ad from the Detroit Free Press Sunday edition, Entertainment section, page 5E.

The 2012 ad

    Tailgating starts at 8 AM?!?!?  Could there be such a thing as too much partying?  Those poor parking lot attendants don’t know what they’re in for.
    Update: from the concert page at the Olympia Entertainment website, here’s the website splash page ad and the webpage banner ad.

It’s Official

    The rumor at Buffett World has come true.
    It was announced today that Jimmy Buffett will be playing Comerica Park on Saturday, July 28.  And for any naysayers who were afraid there would not be any tailgating, the promoters are promising “[a] daylong ‘Buffett’s Beach Party’ will be held on the grounds outside Comerica Park, where a lounge, margarita tastings, midway games and other frills will be in place for the legion of partying Parrothead fans.”
    Here’s the Detroit News‘s write-up.  Here’s the Detroit Free Press‘s.
    And this banner was on the Freep’s front page.

Front page news

    Update: here’s the Free Press‘s article, in full, from page 1C.
    Update update: here’s the concert page at the Olympia Entertainment website.
