Jimmy Buffett the Storyteller

This weekend I took a quick trip to Paris to attend my 18th and 19th Jimmy Buffett concerts – my 9th year of seeing him in Europe! As per usual, it was a tiny venue and the concerts were very intimate – just Jimmy and several hundred fans. After a full day of tailgating (withContinue reading “Jimmy Buffett the Storyteller”

Paris and Buffett v6.0 – Day 2

We woke up [very late] Saturday morning and seized the day. Katie met her friend for some touring about and I decided to go for a run.

Instead of following a predetermined route, I decided justContinue reading “Paris and Buffett v6.0 – Day 2”

Speaking of which, I still have an extra ticket for that show if any Parrot Heads are looking to join.Continue reading “Mixed Media”

On Friday it was announced that Jimmy Buffett will be performing not one but two shows in Europe this year, both in small venues. July 5th he will be in London in a theater that seats ~2,000 and September 26th he will be in ParisContinue reading “It Finally Happened”

Cheeseburger in Paradise

Last night I went to a coworker’s apartment for . . . cheeseburgers! I can’t remember when was the last time I indulged in meaty, gooey goodness–maybe not since 2008–but I was very excited to revisit it. When I arrived at her apartment I met several of her friends (from Switzerland, Russia, and the CzechContinue reading “Cheeseburger in Paradise”
