This weekend I joined my parents for a Jimmy Buffet concert at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA. My dad had gone before and told me about some of the tailgating that goes on, but I was still kinda surprised by it. People had decorated their cars to make them look like sharks, there were blenders everywhere, fake beaches that were made by people spreading sand all over the parking lot, insane amounts of food, and tons of drunk Parrotheads just enjoying life in the parking lot.
A big difference at this show from what I’ve seen at other ones is that everything was under control. There were no fights, nobody throwing up, no trouble at all. Everybody was just relaxing and enjoying themselves. It would be great to go again next year and maybe get a big group of people going.
I loved the show. Buffet played a great set and it was cool to see a sold-out stadium of 40,000 people on their feet and dancing to the same songs. I felt a little out of place at times because I wasn’t as hardcore of a fan as the people around me, but it was still a lot of fun.
Aside from that, I’ve only been up to a few things here and there over the past week. This weekend I went to a relatives anniversary party on the beach in Milford on Saturday night then met up with a friend for some coffee later on. I did some hiking, started up classes again, saw some famous actors, took a spontaneous road trip to Poughkeepsie New York with Justin and Brooke, and started helping out with Venture Crew 33 in Derby. Tonight – it’s over to a friend’s house for some Beatles movies and pizza. Good stuff. September is flying by.
