Thumbs up Free Lats & Atts Party at Miami Boat Show

This is NOT a commercial message - it's an invitation to anyone and everyone for a FREE party and concert. "Eric Stone Live at Strictly Sail Miami" is Saturday evening, February 17th and is part of the second annual Latitudes & Attitudes Miami Cruiser's Bash. You just need to be in the gates before 6:00pm at the Strictly Sail venue (Miamarina at Bayside - NOT the Convention Center). OK, so you have to pay admission to get in the show, but the party and concert are free for everyone there. Oh, did I mention free beer and pizza? Tons of prizes, too. With the grand prize being a one-week charter with Sunsail.

Contrary to some people's opinion (usually someone who has never been to a Lats & Atts party), these are not drunken bashes. It's a family event with lots of dancing, laughing, and general good times. And if you've never seen Eric Stone and his band perform, you're in for a treat. Especially when Kyle, his lead guitarist, does the National Anthem a' la Jimmi Hendrix - he plays with his teeth, too. We're even going to record the concert with multiple cameras for a one-hour TV special on the Water Channel.

Last year was our first party at the Miami show, and we had about 700 people show up. This past November in St. Pete (which I believe was the 7th annual party there) we had close to 2,000 people. Something like 20 kegs of beer and 235 pizzas! As Bob said afterwards, "Now THAT was a party!"

The Miami party is gonna be a lot of fun. And all of us with Lats & Atts agree, SAILING IS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN!!! Hope to see you there...

I didn't here about the free party at Chicago! Maybe they are just waiting to spring the news on us at the last moment, it's more fun that way.
