Only a few minutes drive from the airport.


Was supposed to tailgate with Buffett buddies from the St. Bart's show Brian and Melissa, but they were in the VIP lot I didn't find. Also turns out I was sitting close to Allen from the Pensacola show, and I was in the same row as another guy from that show.

Row F seat 15 (left end of the row) turned out to be similar to the front row, just way off to the left side.
About half way into the show Jimmy spotted me- I think he was surprised I was there.






Zac Brown showed up to play "Knee Deep".













Some cushion in case Jimmy falls off the stage again.










Zac returns for "A pirate looks at forty"
